KATRA TURANA-S/T, LP, 1982, JAPAN






Following my post of their "The End (Gradient Of Texture)" EP a few days back, here's another cavalcade of lopsided but delicate as a doily maneuvers from these Japanese masters of whimsy gone wonky.

The first track on "The End (Gradient Of Texture)" features a drum machine which blatantly rips off Prince's "When Doves Cry" (which - probably not coincidentally - was a huge, HUGE hit in the US just one year prior, 1984). Just was wondering if anyone else noticed this similarity.

If Kimera sounds anything like the two other records i would love to see it posted here as well because this stuff is great!

I'm one of the folks who bought that "Welcome to Dreamland" comp that came out in the 80's. The single Katra Turana track on it was so distinctive that I haven't forgotten it since. In fact, just the other day I was wondering if they ever recorded a full album. And then here I am at Mutant Sounds again. You guys are the best!
