Folk Songs For An Obscure Race
(Haang Niap - HAANG002) CD $16.00
Twenty-one tracks from one end of oblivion to the other. Misanthropic ’80s industrial comparable to SPK, early Ramleh and Whitehouse, for their shitty production, locked rhythms and medieval folk passages. A perfect soundtrack for your personal disintegration.
(Art Into Life - AIL006) LP $36.00 (Out-of-stock)
The singularly strange storytelling power of Jun Konagaya had been largely overlooked until Folk Songs For An Obscure Race (Haang Niap 2009), which collects the group’s early ’80s material. Love Songs is a story in eight volumes, ripe with deviant madness and gathered salvic capacity. Handmade clock artwork (each one is unique), eight-page booklet. Edition of 300.
(Vinyl on Demand - VOD92) 3xLP $80.00 (Out-of-stock)
Jun Konagaya’s amazing, almost schizophrenic power-electronics project changes its mood and atmosphere in seconds -- from extreme harsh noise walls to Mansonesque folk songs. Includes tracks from Vital cassette, Amaterasu seven-inch (G.A. Propaganda 1985), Folk Music LP (Eskimo 1986), Message twelve-inch (Eskimo 1987) and assorted compilations. Edition of 400.
