Midori Mushi San Connichiwa
(Siltbreeze - sb134) 7-inch $7.00
Five tracks informed by old-school Japanese genre snuffers such as Tako and Gunjogacrayon, combining the jabbering, pan-humanoid out-there-ness of the former with the zoned, riffed, mutant indifference of the latter. Tacked on to this toxic, dripping blotter of sound is an eerie cover snippet stabbing the heart of every campfire singalong and folksy hootenanny through time immemorial. Edition of 286.
Otonaki Touge de Hagureta KMR
(Ultra Eczema - UE72) LP $25.00 (Out-of-stock)
Another amazing Japanese weirdo band with members of Aburadako and the free bird Hasegawa Shizuo. A mental, Harry Pussy-like guitar style, deadpan free drumming, a voice that could be recorded somewhere else or under a public shower, and a lot of energy crammed onto one record. Yellow and black splutter cover by Dennis Tyfus and an insert! Limited edition.
