生須芳英 aka Namasu Yoshihide is a modern day Japanese musician who makes Japanese sound poetry, experimental, and noise. He’s also part of Japan’s modern day performance art scene, most notably working with Yuuko Haii (who now goes as Youko Heidy).
生須芳英 is known for his awesome sound poetry. Sometimes he does it with no effects, and sometimes he had delay and so on. His voice is awesome and he does great at doing the vocal style of the genre. A mix between talking, ranting, and yelling, at a high speed. He’s known for getting very emotional during his performances, sometimes even to the point of crying. This makes his vocals and performances really stand out and sound awesome. He often also cuts himself on stage. He also does guitar based performances too.
You can watch and listen to stuff below. Sadly, one of my favorite performances by him isn’t on YouTube anymore. It was only a minute long and he walked out completely naked, through down a a bunch of wood that had a knife within it. He picked up the knife and started really fucking up his arm and doing vocals, yelling, crying, stamping his feet. He kept cutting his arm then grabbed onto the blade and held it as hard as possible, the whole side of his body covered in blood.
He has a Bandcamp too
