JOJO HIROSHIGE / LASSE MARHAUG / PAAL NILSSEN-LOVE / PIKA

Osaka Fortune

(Premier Sang - 007) LP $20.00

Osaka Fortune is the first studio record by the quartet of two drummers and two noisicians (one each from Norway and Japan). Hiroshige and Marhaug bring the screech, the former via three-and-half decades as guitarist and leader of infamous Hijokaidan, the latter having established himself as one of the most prolific and travel-ready Scandinavians of the past twenty years. Nilssen-Love has pounded for The Thing and Atomic, and collaborated with Peter Brötzmann, Mats Gustafsson and Ken Vandermark, while Pika has cracked it for Afrirampo and Acid Mother's Temple. Finally, a chain with no weak links. 350-gram vinyl. Edition of 400
