The incredible power created by GENESIS BREYER P-ORRIDGE (Psychic TV / Throbbing Gristle) - the founding father of the Industrial world, and MERZBOW - the undisputed king of Japanese Noise. Recorded exclusively for Cold Spring, with five brand new tracks, "A Perfect Pain" has been hailed as an important album and an extremely successful collaboration.

Remastered for both CD and vinyl by The Cage Studios.

"a long overdue collaboration from these two living legends of experimental music... This disc will scare the shit out of most people... it's almost a modern day take on the simultaneous beauty/brutality aesthetic of Throbbing Gristle" (Brainwashed)

"…easily the finest material Merzbow has made in some time... pure data trash of the highest quality…" (The Wire).
