For those unfamiliar with Justice Yeldham's work, let me just give a brief introduction - Justice Yeldham is a noise musician who plays amplified panes of broken glass with his face. Fans of Yeldham's shocking act will be excited to hear that he has a new project on the way, a band called RICE屎CORPSE (rice corpse being the literal translation of the Chinese word for shit). A recent grant allows Yeldham to live in Beijing, China, where he has recently begun playing shows with a drummer and pianist.
An awesome mp3 (30 minutes of chaos!) of the first live show is up on the myspace page, as well as a video of a practice session and older Yeldham projects. The band is just getting started but a CD release is planned. A live set at SXSW in Austin is possible. About the project, Yeldham says, "I've been rehearsing rice corpse over the last few days and its going great. Li zenghui plays piano and Yang Yang is on drums. The sound after two practices is beginning to resemble what i hoped for, with a jarring offbeat rhythm section accompanied by my free noise." Yeldham pictured left with Sato Yukie, NOT of Rice Corpse.
