SHINRO OHTAKE & YAMANTAKA EYE-PIPELINE-24 SMASH HITS BY 24 PUZZLE PUNK BANDS, CD & BOOK, 1996, JAPAN
Following up on yesterdays posting of the Juke/19 boxset, here's the passingly cited collaboration between Juke/19 mainman Shinro Ohtake (now much more known in the Japanese visual arts world, his delightfully messy childhood-gone-wrong visual sensibility displayed in the enclosed book) and Eye from The Boredoms. Anyone that cocked an ear to the Juke/19 will understand well that Eye's inspired infantilism schtick is as indebted to Juke/19's sound as his neon junkstore visual sense is indebted to Ohtake's fine arts output. One suspects that their coming together here is something of a pilgrimage to Mecca of sorts for Eye. As for what it sounds like...well...let's see. The year is 1996, there's a room full of childrens instruments on hand, a cockamamie thematic conceit is in place (in this instance, that the album is by a collection of "24 puzzle punk bands") and Eye is a featured performer. 3 guesses.
Note: this lengthy CD has been divided into two parts.
