Phew / John Duncan / Kondo Tatsuo LP

Phew / John Duncan / Kondo Tatsuo LP “Backfire of Joy” Black Truffle

Black Truffle is thrilled to announce Backfire of Joy, a previously unheard recording from Phew, John Duncan and Kondo Tatsuo, documenting a concert at Tokyo’s Hosei University in 1982. Though the fertile exchange of ‘zines, tapes and records between the Japanese underground and the Los Angeles Free Music Society meant the artists were familiar with each other’s work, this performance (occurring on Duncan’s first visit to Japan) was their first meeting and only performance as a trio.

Duncan is heard on his signature shortwave radio set-up, while Kondo performs on synth, tape loops and echo-drenched piano, providing a spacious backdrop for Phew’s astonishing performance of spontaneous, free-associative song moving between Japanese and English. A testament to the unhinged exploration of the 1980s experimental underground, the trio careen wildly between crashing percussive tape loops, deluges of shortwave noise, insistent piano figures and playful synth melodies. On the B side, we are treated to a remarkable ten minute sequence moving organically from spaced-out synth and radio textures to a stunning finale of improvised balladry centred on piano and voice, unexpectedly broken up by electronic interjections. Beautifully recorded in crunchy vintage fidelity, Backfire of Joy arrives accompanied by archival photographs and newly authored liner notes from all three participants.

Livre Micro Japon – Michel Henritzi

Michel Henritzi Livre Micro Japon Lenka Lente

15 x 19,5 cm – 400 pages

Venu à la musique du Japon à la fin des années 1980, par l’écoute d’Hijokaidan, Michel Henritzi n’a depuis cessé d’en explorer les nombreux et divers territoires. Après sa rencontre avec Taku Sugimoto, il fait un premier voyage au Japon : « Je suis tombé littéralement amoureux de ce pays et de ses musiques, celles de la vie et du quotidien, ses bruits exotiques, ses musiques multiples qui se jouent dans des clubs minuscules, des galeries d’art, des live houses apocalyptiques. C’était comme tirer un fil d’une pelote de laine, se déroulant à l’infini des rencontres, des concerts. L’underground nippon se révélait d’une richesse insoupçonnée, plurielle, innovante. » C’est cette richesse que met au jour la quarantaine d’interviews – inédites ou publiées au fil des années dans Revue & Corrigée, Peace Warriors & Blow Up – de Micro Japon.

Aussi, nous sommes d’autant plus heureux de la sortie de ce livre car certains auront remarqué que Michel non seulement collabore au label An’archives mais il apporte son aide, ses conseils, son enthoisiasme et ce depuis le début de cette aventure. Sans lui, il fuat bien l’avouer les premières références n’auraient probablement pasvu le jour. Depuis des années M. Henritzi est un des passeurs principaux mais aussi un musicien attachant qui au gré des années imprime discrètement sa marque.

Dans le présent ouvrage, on y trouve Merzbow, Keiji Haino, Tetuzi Akiyama, Taku Sugimoto, Masayoshi Urabe et tant d’autres…Hallelujah !

Harutaka Mochizuki + Henritzi & Takahashi Ikuro

Back in stock !

Harutaka Mochizuki CD “Flageolet Ni Tokeru Chocolate” E-Klageto

Limited to 150, comes in a 7 inch art with inserts

Attention : this one of the most beautiful album I’ve heard for months and probably my favorite with Mochizuki. It’s not a sax album, more like a diary mixing some sequences with sax, short songs, melodica and keyboard. If this one is a trip, it’s more like an invitation with meeting a soul in a small place. Nothing spectacular, sometimes  a bit like Namio Kudo, Mochizuki can move us with only a breath or the birth of a melody. Yes we love Mochizuki and find this album being probably his most personnal and poetic one.
