Japan, Experimental, Field Recording, Japanoise, Avant Garde, Lo-fi, Juntaro, Gerogerigegege, Rare; CD (1994) – Ex Used condition
As with most Gerogerigegege releases, this one is another rare as shit Japanoise oddity. This release is one of the most eerie and haunting pieces of music juntaro ever bothered recording. It is also probably one of the gerogerigegege’s most unique albums available to interested experimental Japanese music consumers. Apparently, the given description from the (Japanese) liner notes states that the entire cd is pretty much just a field recording of a drunk homeless japanese man rambling over the sounds of an incredibly distant piano. Probably the quietest work done by the group, its often thought to have been either a long winded work of social commentary, or a piece of music that Juntaro created for or about his mother, who was supposedly a rather famous japanese classical pianist. This original 1994 release CD has cover art consisting of 2 paragraphs written in japanese next to a black and white photograph taken by Juntaro of 2 little kids wearing rabbit masks in an unknown village. The back cover has a picture of a horse. This CD, although being quite stark and distant, is also rather unnerving. File under ‘Uneasy Listening’.
