Julian Cope gives HAIKAI NO KU vinyl debut double thumbs up!

Haikai noJulian Cope, Archdude of Essex, connaiseur of all things psychedelic and underground, over at Head Heritage expresses his sincere love for Sick on My Journey, the debut album of the trio Haikai No Ku.

Next up, take a listen to the sonic devastation of SICK ON MY JOURNEY by power trio Haikai no Ku, whose wall-of-noise and Titanic celebrations of Midrange are a joy to behold. Despite their fake Japanese name and scrupulous attention to overdubbing, this bunch is entirely itself, bearing all the Matamps-Thrown-Down-Elevator-Liftshafts sonic attack of Les Rallizes Dénudés, but without the supremely IQ-lessness of Mizutani’s cohorts – truly the Billy Talbots of the Underground. Indeed, although the Dutch record company Burning World claim that this band plays ‘Death Toll Blues’ in the vein of Mizutani’s finest and Kawabata’s Mainliner, please be aware that this is something of a red herring. For musically at least Haikai no Ku exhibit none of the pre-teen pedestrian Lümpenhippy Velvetsisms that Mizutani requires in order to clear his psychic custard (hell, this drummer sounds like he’s got a whole kit!), nor even any of the post-Blue Cheer, sub-High Rise wipe-outs of Kawabata Makoto’s transcendental Mainliner. But fear not, my kiddies, for instead, Haikai no Ku present us with their very own brand new trip AND it’s just as stupid and petulantly ramalaming as any of the aforemenched. So grab this slice of brown vinyl with its free CD and dig dig dig it! Stuperb debut LP, gentlemen!

The album is still available here. Or listen to the album on Bandcamp below.

 

New vinyl: Burning Witch Box, Eyehategod (cheap!), Teitanblood, Deathspell Omega

Burning Witch BoxHere we are again with another installment in our series “New arrival”. This time we seem to focus on extreme left wing metal like Teitanblood, Deathspell Omega, Burning Witch and the lot, but that is purely coincidental. We also added some Julian Cope, Jenniferever, Electric Moon and some cheapo’s (returns with some corners bent), Hawkwind re-issues, Converge and Dropdead to please all customers. All in all it’s a nice list if we say so ourselves. Did we mention there’s some new Cathedral, Noothgrush and Voivod vinyl there as well? Click on a title to go directly to that title in our store.
