Ultra Bide's guitarist Yoshiyuki "Jojo" Hiroshige
formed Rasenkaidan and then hired two guitarists and formed
Hijokaidan, the proto-noisecore band that became famous for legendary shows
in which the venue itself would be vandalized and the members would engage in
all sorts of repulsive behavior. These live shows are documented on
Zoroku No Kibyo (1982).
An expanded line-up produced albums of psychedelic cacophony
such as Viva Angel (Alchemy, 1984),
with a side-long improvised noise jam,
King Of Noise (1985), that was just a guitar-drums duet.
Tapes (1986) is an anthology.
The 74-minute Modern (1989) and the
77-minute Romance (1990) marked a new, more extreme stage in the
project's life: loud relentless free-form sonic onslaught.
The Last Recording Album (Alchemy, 2004) was a 25th anniversary album.
Hijokaidan's guitarist Jojo Hiroshige has also released many solo albums,
Kimi Ga Shinette Ieba Shinukara (1997)
and Die Everyone (1998)
Uterus and Human (2000),
Crimson Voyage (Alchemy, 2001),
My Voice Of Cry Is Very Small (2003),
Donari Chirasu Boku No Koe Wa Amari Ni Mo Chiisai (2004) and
Boku Wa Mo Utawanai Daro (Alchemy, 2005).
Polar Nights Live (january 2006) documents Hiroshide in three lengthy duets (with vocalist Junko, with guitarist Per Gisle Galaen and with Sten Ove Toft on electronics).
Made In Japan - Live At Shinjuku Pit Inn (april 2012) documents a
including a 40-minute version of Backstroke Sta.
by Jazz Hijokaidan, a sextet on which the guitarist plays with the
Incapacitants' duo of Toshiji Mikawa
and Fumio Kosakai (both on electronics), Billy Bao's vocalist Junko,
Akira Sakata on alto sax
and drummer Yoshisaburo "Sabu" Toyozumi.
The same sextet, except for Toyozumi replaced by Futoshi Okano, is featured on
Made In Studio
(july 2012), the first
studio album in eight years, including
the 30-minute Auto-Noda-Fe.
