Suishou No Fune

The Shining Star - Live


imprec165   CD


Suishou No Fune [soo-ee-sho no foo-nay] was formed in 1999 by guitarists Pirako Kurenai and Kageo. They were quickly acknowledged in Japan for their unique take on Japanese psychedelic traditions but it wasn''t until their inclusion on PSF''s Tokyo Flashback Volume 5 they became that their international prominance began to grow.

Heavy lyrical emotion transcends linguistic barriers and Pirako''s blown out fuzzy free-dream guitar work is an alternate universe psychedelic Japanese shoegaze. They are a forest at night drenched in echoing reverb and soaked with deeply spiritual/emotional melodies. Awash in waves of fuzz Suishi No Fune''s control of detail amidst chaos and heavy emotions is their deepest asset. Here''s to the past. Here''s to the future. Somewhere between Fushitsusha and Windy & Carl there is Suishi No Fune."The group''s sound runs from massively distended nod-outs that recall parts of the first Fushitsusha album through weird duo tracks that orbit a parallel universe where late-period John Fahey was the prime influence on Charalambides, infernal Dead C/Gate style guitar abuse and achingly beautiful comedown ballads. The twin vocalists are massively different in their approach, with Pirako singing in a high wayward style that''s all throat and no lungs while Kageo works from the other end of the pipes with a ripped Father Yod/Jim Morrison/Keiji Haino polyglot. Simply one of the greatest out-of-nowhere groups to come out of the Tokyo underground in years and the undisputed stars of PSF''s recent Tokyo Flashback 5 compilation." --Volcanic Tongue
