Pain Jerk (Japanese; ペイン・ジャーク) is a noise music unit run by Japanese musician Kohei Gomi (1963). Gomi started home-recording in the 1980s as private works. PAIN JERK was one of the more prolific and influential noise artists of the 1990s, and is one of the leading figures in the "dynamic" style of Japanese noise or Japanoise. Gomi is also the owner of the noise label AMP, and a member, along with T. Mikawa and F. Kosakai of Incapacitants, of the noise supergroup Gomikawa Fumio. He recently headlined the opening night of No Fun Fest 2007 (USA) and did a Scandinavian tour (Fylkingen / Stockholm, Sweden; Copenhagen, Denmark; Oslo and Trondheim, Norway). PAIN JERK contributed to the Avanto Festival 2007 in Helsinki, Finland, and in 2008 toured Poland, Berlin, Geneva, and Spain. Gomi also contributed to All Ears Festival 2009 (Oslo / Norway) and did his first UK tour.(Glasgow - Edinburgh - Newcastle - London - Bristol - London) then Paris and Antwerp.
