With a line-up featuring Boredoms' Seiichi Yamamoto, Yoshida from Ruins/Koenjihyakkei and Otomo Yoshide (among a host of other Japanese underground movers), this little known avant prog masterpiece remains for me one of the highest water marks of the 90's j-prog renaissance. Base Of Fiction frames corrosive Bondage Fruit/Happy Family-style prog convolution inside a dense forest of frenetic string section motion that alternates between the astringency of Elliott Sharp's compositions for The Solider String Quartet and richly thematic progressions that seem to take their cue from Yoshida's compositions for Koenjihyakkei. Laden with abstract cod-operatic female vocals and steeped in a miles-deep structural (il)logic apparent only to it's creators, this is brain-scrambling clusterfuck of the first order.
