The Mad Guitar Sings

(Black Petal - 1201) LP $20.00 (Out-of-stock)

The first solo studio recording to ever be released by this member of Miminokoto, New Rock Syndicate, Los Doroncos (with Doronco of Les Rallizes Denudes), Aihiyo (with Keiji Haino), LSD March, and Broomdusters is a dark solitary take on the signature sound of one of the greats of modern Japanese psychedelic rock: late-night / early-morning comedown blues and black, luminescent storm-song. Kawaguchi Masami’s voice is the true updating of the enka tradition: no rehash or nostalgia, just the bleak, lonesome heart that runs through enka’s core.
