S.Core - Gush (tape, Extreme XCT 003, 1990)
"Active since the mid of the eighties, japanese musician Yutaka Tanaka released his works under the name S-CORE. Early works are all cassette albums he put out on his own cassette label Afflict Records, many of those were recorded via mail collaboration with many sound artists from international underground scene, such as Stefano Biasin (Italy), Telepherique and Trigger B (Germany), Merzbow (Japan), Al Margolis/If, Bwana (USA), Rafael Flores (Spain)." (Discogs)
As far as I know Tanaka is one of the true lost musicians from the cassette scene and not seen since (like Mario Marzidovsek!). He has released a whole bunch of cassettes, 7"s and CDRs, and curious enough 'Gush' is the only one I have.
