This is the second big update that i did on “The Cosmic Side of Japan”. This second update I did with help from Adam (@vogonlaundromat on twitter). Adam is psychedelic rock fan and has a ridicilous knowledge of the Japanese psych scene. Check out the new addition here or the full list = “The Cosmic Side of Japan”.
someone said Space Streakings is Hyper-Disco Grindcore (sporting an industrial-sized dollop of alien hip hop, and a healthy dose of “WTF?”). I can’t really argue with that. The band was made from members Captain Insect, Karate Condor, Kame Bazooka, Screaming Stomach and Kashikari Rental Rocket. I Think.
Here is a relativly normal band in difference with space streakings. Nishinihon was made from Kawabata (Acid Mothers Temple etc.) and is gorgeous heavy psych filled with trippy guitar work and excellent psychedelic vibes. Other members where Tsuyama Atsushi, Ichiraku Yoshimitsu and Okano Futoshi.
Ohkami No Jikan
Made of Fukuoka Rinji, Nishino Kouji, Yamazaki Iwao.
Sarry makes Japanese vocal noise drone. well, whatever that is. have a listen.
A very weird Japanese Fusion band that blends, jazz, noiserock, psych and other weird things.
Maybe you guessed it, maybe not because what the hell is all this, but Sax Ruins is a newer version of Ruins. Instead of the bass player on Ruins we get the alto sax player Ono Ryoko. Their only release is on Ipecac Recordings.
A Japan-US collaboration with members KK Null, Jim O’Rourke, Darin Grey and Thymme Jones. Their self titles was released 94 on Skin Graft Rcords.
