Listen to a Live Recording by Merzbow, Keiji Haino, Tatsuya Yoshida, and Richard Pinhas

That's right: four of the most celebrated noise musicians ever shared a stage, and thanks to modern recording technology, the internet, etc. we can all listen to a little bit of their performance. The track posted below was uploaded to Richard Pinhas' SoundCloud with little descriptive information, but we know that it finds the iconic French guitarist jamming in Tokyo with three of Japan's brightest stars (Haino, Merzbow, Tatsuya), finishing off a chaotic, dense wall of sound called "Superdelux," presumable recorded at the venue of the same name. It's professedly rough and unmixed, but that doesn't mar the listening experience too badly-- the track is still plenty exciting, driven by all-over percussion and swirling guitar scrawl.
