Urashima:

"The Tokyo-based Japanese experimental musician Masaya Nakahara as kwon as Violent Onsen Geisha has been dazzling us with his entire singular approach to sound since 1989. Harnessing his unique natural approach to mixier by combining techno, pop samples and hip hop, as well as his sister's karaoke singing or his parent quarreling, screams and glass or ceramic bowls broken, he incredibly built a body of work in recorded contexts that has almost no parallel, producing arrangements where all the style and the sonic atmosphere meet in a happy junk room and elaborating his delirious patchwork studio from magneto-phone tapes. His amazing cut-up proved interesting to major band such as Sonic Youth and Beck, who invited him on a US tour in 1995.

At the height of his music career as Violent Onsen Geisha in 1998, Nakahara published Mari & Fifi No Gyakusatsu Songu Bukku (Mari & Fifi's Massacre Songbook) and made his debut as a novelist. In 2001, he received the 14th Yukio Mishima Award for “ Arayuru Basho Ni Hanataba Ga ”(Bouquets of Flowers Everywhere), and became increasingly active as a writer and movie critic.

His best-know cassette Shock! Shock! Shock! Released in 1989 from legendary Vanilla Records, first time reissued on vinyl formatDespite the density of its structures, that combine the most disparate musical genres with deafening shouts and crashes, Shock! Shock! Shock! Feels like a breath of fresh air, fearlessly skirting the line between creative rigor and focused interplay and a playful irreverence in ways that leave you wondering where the hell you are. "
