The Geisha Noise Research Group, to a certain extent has been a cursed musical project. We never planned this, you can’t. 2009 for us was a strange year and a series of life changing events forced us to re-evaluate what we would have to do in order to keep the project going. The changes were Anton Maiof’s move to Berlin and Robbie Cooper’s appointment as a psychology lecturer in Edinburgh. If the majority of us had remained in Bristol we would have kept going in our usual fashion, because of the difficulty in being able to write, a choice was made over the direction of the band. It was our conclusion that electronically we could do more work over the next (hopefully many) years than we could if we would continue doing sporadic practices between now, three countries. It saddens us greatly that Dr Robbie Cooper will not be joining us on the continuation of our journey, we extend the hand of friendship and wish him all the luck in the world with his other excellent projects.
There are other reasons at work here, however. We feel that over the years our musical niche has been slowly stolen from us, expression has been watered down, emotions are worth nothing. Fantasy and fear become either comic pissings of irony or not nearly funny enough. Whilst in Berlin, Anton began attending a few nights of Speedcore and Extratone and began to feel the future of noise rock lay there. On a routine trip back to the UK, he shared his ideas with Steve and Pete and they saw a reason to be excited also.
Geisha Noise Research Group has been honored to play over the years on many a night of Breakcore and Gabba, this is not new territory for us, merely an extension of some punk ideas we like, the observation of the death of “three chords and the truth” mixed with our original concept for the band: Absolute immersion, information overload and total brutality.
Some of you might be upset about this turn of events… if you need someone to blame, blame Company Fuck.
Below are some references to Geisha Noise Research Group, plus many more references to what could well be some potentially interesting or entertaining reading.
Oddly, the persona was brought to life thanks to his days making a very different kind of music: Maiof was a member of Geisha Noise Research Group, a brutal quartet signed to Crucial Blast, and Maoivvi was born as a result …

A Thousand Splendid Suns (Amazon U.S.)
A Thousand Splendid Suns (Amazon U.K.)
After more than two years on the bestseller lists and over four million copies in print, Khaled Hosseini returns with a beautiful, riveting, and haunting novel of enormous contemporary relevance. A Thousand Splendid Suns is a breathtaking story set against the volatile events of Afghanistan’s last thirty years—from the Soviet invasion to the reign of the Taliban to post-Taliban rebuilding—that puts the violence, fear, hope, and faith of this country in intimate, human terms. It is a tale of two generations of characters brought jarringly together by the tragic sweep of war, where personal lives—the struggle to survive, raise a family, find happiness—are inextricable from the history playing out around them. Propelled by the same storytelling instinct that made The Kite Runner a beloved classic, A Thousand Splendid Suns is at once a remarkable chronicle of three decades of Afghan history and a deeply moving account of family and friendship. It is a striking, heart-wrenching novel of an unforgiving time, an unlikely friendship, and an indestructible love—a stunning accomplishment.

Culture Making: Recovering Our Creative Calling (Amazon U.S.)
Culture Making: Recovering Our Creative Calling (Amazon U.K.)
2009 Christianity Today Book Award winner! Named one of Publishers Weekly’s best books of 2008 (religion category) It is not enough to condemn culture. Nor is it sufficient merely to critique culture or to copy culture. Most of the time, we just consume culture. But the only way to change culture is to create culture. Andy Crouch unleashes a stirring manifesto calling Christians to be culture makers. For too long, Christians have had an insufficient view of culture and have waged misguided “culture wars.” But we must reclaim the cultural mandate to be the creative cultivators that God designed us to be. Culture is what we make of the world, both in creating cultural artifacts as well as in making sense of the world around us. By making chairs and omelets, languages and laws, we participate in the good work of culture making. Crouch unpacks the complexities of how culture works and gives us tools for cultivating and creating culture. He navigates the dynamics of cultural change and probes the role and efficacy of our various cultural gestures and postures. Keen biblical exposition demonstrates that creating culture is central to the whole scriptural narrative, the ministry of Jesus and the call to the church. He guards against naive assumptions about “changing the world,” but points us to hopeful examples from church history and contemporary society of how culture is made and shaped. Ultimately, our culture making is done in partnership with God’s own making and transforming of culture. A model of his premise, this landmark book is sure to be a rallying cry for a new generation of culturally creative Christians. Discover your calling and join the culture makers.
