Very full-on experimental synth work out from renowned Japanese NHK-related artist Yoshitaka Azuma. I'd be interested to know what Yoshi had taken before recording this one because there are parts on here that are really quite deranged, surely he's soundtracking something or there's some sort of context to this alien-inhabiting 80's landscape where only these sounds could be appropriate. Maybe he's just showing off, either way its completely amazing and you could happily trump some of the finest Berlin School material from the likes of Tangerine Dream et al with this one. Amazing cover, reluctant sale. (Vinyl & Sleeve NM - NO OBI / W Insert).
