Fumio Kosakai - Earth Calling LP
by Fumio Kosakai
Fumio Kosakai is best known to most for his contributions to legendary Japanese harsh noise entities like Hijokaidan, C.C.C.C and of course, Incapacitants. His comparatively small body of solo work however finds him exploring far more restrained electronic music terrain. Inspired by the most psychedelic elements of artists like Terry Riley and Hawkwind, he produces gorgeous and nuanced minimalist drone textures. This LP reissues his first cassette from 1987, released in a minuscule number and now a highly sought after release. Screen printed record sleeves by Mick Flower and a card insert of liner notes in both Japanese and English from the artist himself. Co-release between Memoirs Of An Aesthete and Crater Lake.
