LSD March / Masami Kawaguchi New Rock Syndicate / Suishou no Fune / Ikuro Takahashi
Tuesday, December 26, 2006 @ 11:00PM
A holiday-size bonanza of new psychedelic music from Japan, featuring four sets of music recorded live at WFMU. LSD March makes a return appearance with a set that shows their range from lyrical introspection to their signature explosive guitar mayhem. Masami Kawaguchi takes a break from leading Miminokoto's complex interplay with a fuzzed out take on garage rock. Suishou no Fune expand on the brooding, lysergic atmospherics of their Holy Mountain debut, while Ikuro Takahashi weaves a mesmerizing web of polyrhythms in a single drum performance that marks his first return to the US since his late 90s appearance behind the traps for Fushitsusha.
Past specials include a tribute to the late saxophonist Mototeru Takagi, live sets from Ghost, Fushitsusha, You Ishihara, Miminokoto, Mandog, LSD March, Jutok Kaneko & Koji Shimura, Yura Yura Teikoku, Tetuzi Akiyama & Toshimaru Nakamura, Jack Rose, Marqido, Up-Tight, 2/5 BZ, Burun, Institut fuer Feinmotorik, Nullpointer, Radian, Tape, Nobukazu Takemura and Marcus Schmickler, as well as special DJ sets from ex-Toulousers Jamison Duffield & Zee and DJ Chungking Xpress (presenting music from the films of Wong Kar-Wai).
Upcoming special events for the station at large can be seen here.
You may also peruse playlists for past programs,
complete with Real Audio archives, indexed with jump-points to each song.
Check out a discography I compiled of guitarist extraordinaire Michio Kurihara
(of White Heaven, Ghost and Stars fame).
It was originally prepared for his
interview with Alan Cummings in issue number 31 (Winter 2001/2) of
the Ptolemaic Terrascope.
Also- a list of Favorites that have caught my ear
lately and the obligatory section of links.
