Every time I sit down to digest psychedelia in all its glory, I always question the Grateful Dead fascination of each crop of collegiate hippies that meanders in and out of the U. By embracing a band and ethos their parents probably hugged tightly during their formative years, they fail to reach the hippie Zen that they seem enthralled to reach.
Or perhaps they have and just hold some grudge against Bardo Pond members for scarfing down the last fat-free granola tofu bar without notice. Subscribe in a reader. High Rise - Disallow Jean-Pierre Massiera - Psychoses Freakoid Jean-Pierre Massiera - Psychoses Discoid The group was basically two Japanese women with a wicked sense of humor living in England. It could be argued that they were comedians who sang, more than singers who did comedy.
Their songs largely made fun of how foreigners perceive Japanese people, but also included a few jabs at modern Japanese culture as well. The group was also political and feminist leaning.
The two were not part of any established music or comedy businesses in Japan or the UK, and gleefully went on their satirical ways without regard to any norms. While not as big in the States, their music also found its way to US college radio and strong import sales. Japan, meanwhile, did not know what to make of them, as they were unknown in their homeland at the time, and was not quite sure who they were making fun of. Eventually the pair landed their own TV show, Love To Fly - Jean-Pierre Massiera - Psychoses: Discoïd (1976-1981) was basically a chat show, but had an ending segment during which guests sang karaoke.
Frank Chickens also played concerts around the UK, most famously as part of the Red Wedge movement, and opened a few dates for The Smiths. The novelty of the group, however, wore off after awhile, and by their star had dropped a few ranks. Nonetheless, the Frank Chickens still carried on. Inafter just two albums, a greatest hits album was released. Taguchi left the group, and was replaced by Atsuko Kamura, and then Chika Nakagawa, and then by something of a revolving cast with Love To Fly - Jean-Pierre Massiera - Psychoses: Discoïd (1976-1981) Hohki the only constant.
Eventually some of their material was also released in Japan, but not until things were already on the slide, and little became of their career there. Kazuko Hohki continues to live in the UK and does a one woman multimedia show, also working in in various other capacities in the arts. Thanks to Chhanrithy and Yawning and Balafon blog!
Chlangden Vol. Pseng Barey Chlangden Vol. Wednesday, February 4, Baikal - Baikal Baikal is the crossroads where hippie meets metal, where jam meets grunge. An album that fans of Earth and the Dead can enjoy equally for just as many different reasons as for the same.
Jai Kaali Soundtrack. Tuesday, January 27, Wicked Witch - Chaos At some level, Wicked Witch might be an offshoot of the P-Funk empire -- a lost mission to a dark planet way out in the galaxy -- trapped out there on their own, and slowly losing touch with Tasavallan Presidentti - Milky Way Moses original groove of the Mothership as they mess around with heavy basslines, spacey keyboards, and some very stark rhythms -- sometimes played live, sometimes from a drum machine.
There's a bit of vocals in the mix, but they're usually second-tier next to the rhythms -- which themselves Just Another Night - Short Romans - 4tunes Of War plenty of weird twists and turns.
Billed as "evil psycho machine funk" -- which is a pretty accurate description! Thursday, January 22, Rovo - Nuou Tuesday, January 20, Huun-Huur-Tu feat. Sainkho - Mother Earth! Father Sky!
