When we accosted Atsuo & Wata after their concert in mid 90s at Neumo’s in Seattle (Greg and I had come to see Joe Preston’s solo project THRONES and had our very stoned minds absolutely shattered by the support act, BORIS, who we had no idea existed in this dimension) Atsuo’s instantly generous and friendly attitude belied the savage sound they had just processed though and commenced. We asked if they liked SLEEP. Atsuo pointed to Wata and said “She likes SLEEP”. We were bonded by blood at that moment. A lot of water, blood, tears and sweat under the bridge hence, many moments together on and off stage and a strong friendship that is already 20 years in… that’s amazing! I was so pleased to check out DEAR… it brought me back to those memories of tape trading with Atsuo in the late 90s (Burning Witch demo for Boris/Barebones split 10”). The record is raw and savage, but it’s absolutely not a return-to-the-roots affair, the construction and fluency of their music has gone in so many articulations since those days, it could never go back. It’s a beautiful piece of substrata, hewn from the geology of the earth and time, hewn with faith, color & passion. Heavy does it. 
俺たちがAtsuoとWataに話し掛けたのは90年代半ば、シアトルにあるNeumo’sという会場でのコンサートの後だった(Gregと俺はJoe Prestonのソロ・プロジェクトTHRONESを観に行っていたんだけど、サポート・アクトのBORIS、この次元でやっているなんて全く知らなかった彼らに完全に打ちのめされた)。Atsuoの即打ち解けられるフレンドリーな態度は、Borisが産み放つ獰猛なサウンドとはかけ離れていた。SLEEPは好きかと尋ねた時、AtsuoがWataを指差して「彼女が好きだよ」と答えてくれたな。その時から血の同盟を組んだんだ。血の出るような努力、数多くの過ぎ去ってしまったこと、オン・ステージ/オフ・ステージに限らず一緒に過ごした時間、それがもう20年か... 最高じゃないか! 『DEAR』をチェックするのは嬉しかった... 90年代後半にAtsuoとやっていたテープ・トレード(BURNING WITCHのデモとBORIS/BAREBONESのスプリットとか)の記憶を呼び覚ましてくれるような感じ。このアルバムは生々しくて獰猛だけど、ルーツ回帰的なものとは断じて違う。Borisの音楽の構造と流暢さはごく初期から今に至るまで多岐に渡っていて、立ち返れる云々ではない。これは美しい根底であり、地球の地質と時間から切り離され、信念と色彩と情熱で切り開かれたもの。Heavyが成すものだ。

1992年より活動開始、1996年にTakeshi、Wata、Atsuoという現在のメンバー編制へ。活動当初より自分達の居場所と方法論は自ら作り上げるスタンスで、ワールドワイドに展開。文字通り音を‘体感’するダイナミクスに満ちたライヴで熱狂的なファン・ベースを確立。そのパフォーマンスはナイン・インチ・ネイルズをも魅了し、USアリーナ・ツアーのサポートに抜擢。断続的なスタジオ・セッションを通じ、ほぼ全て自ら録音する‘ひたすら音と向かい合うレコーディング’は代表作『PINK』('05)、『SMILE』('08)、『NOISE』('14)をはじめとする30数作に及ぶフル・アルバム、サン O)))との共作『Altar』('07)他約20作品に及ぶコラボレーション作を産んだ。『ニンジャスレイヤー フロムアニメイション』に書き下ろし新曲3曲と新録1曲を提供('15)したことも記憶に新しい。
