Boomkat Product Review:
The first official reissue of Japanese band Les Rallizes Dénudés’ ‘67- ’69 Studio et Live, via Temporal Drift.
"Led by the enigmatic Takashi Mizutani, Les Rallizes Dénudés has gained an almost mythical status the world over with their delicate balancing act between transcendent psychedelia and pure sonic assault, maintaining its status as an underground phenomenon throughout their three decade existence and beyond.
‘67-’69 Studio et Live features early recordings that capture the reckless energy of the band’s formative years in Kyoto. Including early takes of Rallizes staples “Memory is Far Away” and “The Last One,” the rare tender ballad “Bid Calls in the Dark,” possibly Mothers of Invention-inspired (complete with a kazoo solo) “Vertigo otherwise My Conviction.”
Produced in collaboration with The Last One Musique, the new label set up by former members and associates of Les Rallizes Dénudés, ‘67-’69 STUDIO et LIVE features newly remastered audio by former Rallizes member Makoto Kubota."
