Yasutoshi Yoshida's Government Alpha project started in 1992 and became one of the leading names in the third generation of Japanese noise. Few artists embody the “pure energy” noise fans speak of feeling when listening to noise better than the ferociously intense Government Alpha. This 4xCD box set collects 62 tracks from obscure cassette releases from 1992 to 1999, as well as a number of previously unreleased tracks. Packaged in a solid box with silver foil printing (similar to the Incapacitants box), with a 24-page booklet featuring liner notes by Yoshida and Tommy Carlsson, and graphic collage works by Yoshida.
