NOVO TONO-PANORAMA PARADISE, CD, 1996, JAPAN




Yet another supergroup of sorts from the salad days of Japan's 90's avant prog boom and one of the most stylistically profligate as well, wildly swinging across vectors of experimental music praxis with nary a consideration for coherency. The formidable cast of characters present here include Boredoms/Omoide Hatoba guitarist Seiichi Yamamoto, legendary experimental vocalist and Can collaborator Phew, Ground Zero drummer Masahiro Uemura and experimental polymath Otomo Yoshide and each of their presences are keenly felt in the end result; Omoide Hatoba-like effect fucked genre fracture, propulsive femme vox art pop, episodes of histrionic prog bombast, reflective passages of chanteuse-y melancholy, vivisected funk...all flung together willy nilly like strands of airborne silly string.

I love your descriptions. All flug...string is an apt written and visual metaphor.
