Biography

Omaha NE, United States (2008 – 2008)

Porn & Merzbow was an -- collaboration effort between Porn and legendary Japanese artist Merzbow.

Porn is the demented child of one Tim Moss. Originally from Omaha, Nebraska, Moss fronted the cult band Ritual Device, forging links with the West Coast with the patronage of Frank Kozik’s Man’s Ruin Records. Eventually Moss moved out to the Bay Area where Men of Porn was born. In the stellar company of Melvins’ stalwart Dale Crover (on drums) and omnipresent uber-producer Billy Anderson (on bass), this is a ‘Power Trio’ in the truest sense of the phrase. Since 1999, they have released three albums and toured the world as the de facto Melvins’ support band, thanks to Tim Moss’s day job as the band’s tour manager.

In 2008 for their album “…And the Devil Makes Three”, and the nascent release on Southern’s brand new imprint Truth Cult, the intrepid low-end experimenters enlist the help of Japanese demigod Masami Akita (aka Merzbow). Collaborating across the album’s twelve tracks, the fearless Masami layers scree and grafts gristle onto their already dense muscular creations - this is a marriage made in Blake’s Heaven & Hell; their two uniquely singular approaches blending seamlessly to create a portentous hybrid beast of no equal.
