about

Second album from the early incarnation of Guapo, prior to the release of 'Five Suns' on Cuneiform and 'Black Oni' on Ipecac. Originally released on Pandemonium Records in 1998.

Hirohito is the second full-length album from Guapo, and the first as a duo of Matt Thompson (sampler/guitar) and Dave Smith (drums), with special guest Caroline Kraabel on saxophone. The music is an entertaining melange of noise, improv., electronics, prog., opera and sample viruses, utilising sax, CD player, metal, etc...

The plunderphonic approach to songwriting recontextualises sample sources such as Japanese folksongs, sound effects records and the Chinese national anthem, creating absurdist Noise Operettas out of aural detritus.

Originally released on Pandemonium Records in 1998.
