Kuni Kawachi & Flower Travelling Band
Reissue of these rare early jams from Kawachi, including his monster studio session with a nascent Flower Travelling Band. Kawachi was a member of original 1960s Group Sounds swingers Happenings Four but his solo recordings are a world away from their daft mop top appeal – accompanied by organ and fuzz guitar he power-crys his way through a suite of downer songs and raggedy rockers fully informed by contemporary domestic psych/prog fantasies. The disc also includes the legendary Flower Travelling sessions, previously available on the grey area release Music Composed Mainly By Humans, where the levels of crunch and squealing acid guitar are as delirious as your favourite 70s waster – Billy TK, Brigman, Weaver... you name it. Massively potent Japanese psych rock, straight from the source.
