A – Junko & Michel Henritzi | B – Michel Henritzi & Fukuoka Rinji
Sida A is another love song between La Grande Dame Junko (one of Japan’s foremost improvising vocalists and a member of long-running free-noise unit Hijokaidan) & Michel Henritzi (french guitarist and member of Dustbreeders and Howlin’Ghost Proletarians ). This is blues for the day, from noise to abstract blues, the volcanic meeting between voice & lapsteel.
Side B is blues for the night with Michel Henritzi and Fukuoka Rinji (Majutsu no Niwa – Overhang Party) , another sad story between lapsteel & violin recorded after Fukushima ‘s trauma. Ashes, asphyxiated air, cloudy and melancholic.
