Pan Sonic & Keiji Haino's live record "Shall I Download A Blackhole And Offer It To You" (the gig took place in Berlin 15 Nov 2007) is the documentation of a meeting between two of extreme music's most feared and revered operators.
Ryan Garbes was the drummer of now-defunct Iowa City based psychedelic noise rock band Raccoo-oo-oon. Currently, Garbes plays drums/keys for Wet Hair with Shawn Reed, also from the 'Coon, and Justin Thye.
Christian Fennesz, Jim O’Rourke and Peter Rehberg (founder of Mego Records) recorded two albums, The Magic Sound Of Fenn O’ Berg and The Return of Fenn O’ Berg. These records consist of live recordings and concerts from 1999 – 2001. They used laptops to create sound collages and layers of digital distortion.
This collaboration consists of Alan Vega, member/vocalist for the no wave band Suicide and Mika Vainio & Ilpo Väisänen better known for their scandinavian experimental electronic music duo Pan Sonic from Finland.
