KILLING TIME-IRENE, CD, 1988, JAPAN






Another headfuck from these Japanese mavens of the unpredictable, Irene (their third; "Skip" and "Bill" having been posted here previously) immediate screws with your expectations by frontloading the cloyingly muzak-y strains of of "Kokorowa", something that in no way can prepare you for the mad but relentlessly amiable musical subterfuges that follow, their insanely dense thickets of whacked post-prog chicanery often couched in some truly mystifying jazz-lite moves. the near-indescribable 20+ minute Irene suite is a true peak of head-scratching art rock lunacy, it's structurally destabilized arrangements coming very close to Wha Ha Ha territory. Completely mental.

Having the good fortune of real leisure time and going back through some of these older posts. Irene is so fucking lovely. Thanks once again. Brilliant stuff to be sure.
