"Xome is a harsh noise music project conceived and operated by Bob Scott. Xome first started experimenting with dissonant forms of music in 1989 but the first organized live performance in Tokyo in 1994 marks the true activation of the project. Now based in Sacramento, CA, Xome has evolved into a highly refined and extremely harsh noise music unit by means of improvised manipulation of sound generating and processing equipment."
Here's Xome's brief but blistering set from the Way Out Club a couple weeks back, complete with PA failure at the end (we were pushing it pretty hard that night, first time we've had that problem since we started running shows up there last fall). It was lots of fun to host him and Boar on the final stop on their tour, two of the nicest guys in noise. For more, check out http://www.xome.org/
