Non e Muta. 20th Anniversary Anthology (2 CDs)

Ref: FSD6752


Price: 23.99


2 CD set to celebrate 20 years since the extraordinary Cicala Mvta released their first album. The name 'Cicala Mvta' (pronounced Shikala Moota, Italian for a mute cicada) is a tribute to Soeda Azembo, the greatest street singer and songwriter of popular music in Japan, who was reduced to silence by the authorities after the 1920s. Led by clarinetist Wataru Ohkuma, one of the most innovative musicians in Japan today, Cicala Mvta are heirs to Soeda Azembo and have taken over the fight against the Japanese establishment. They develop music drawn from from chindon (street advertising music, the commercial medium before the advent of TV) and it's predecessor, Jinta (original Japanese brass band music, a form for anti-establishment expression). A mixture of old and new, east and west their music borrows openly from Klezmer, Turkish, Nepalese and Balkan music, progressive rock, punk, free jazz and folk to create it's own world. The band members over the years have included several of Japan's most innovative including Hiromichi Sakamoto (cello, Shibusashirazu, Pascals, Otomo Yoshihide), Yoshiki Sakurai (guitar, Lonesome Strings), Masahiro Uemura (drums, Otomo Yoshihide), Tatsuda Yoshida (drums, Ruins) Takero Sekijima (tuba, Kuricorder Quartet), Gideon Juckes (tuba, Bellowhead, Shibusashirazu).

Press on Cicala Mvta

"This is music from out there, as if trying to be - simultaneously - a Nepalese wedding band, a Japanese chindon combo (think of John Coltrane as town crier) and a kabuki orchestra. It defies categorization." Time Out, London

"An outrageous punk-meets-brass-band rave-up that even Romanian gypsies would be left scratching their heads at. Highly recommended" Mojo, UK

Mystery

Ref: FSD6721


Price: 25.99

Recorded at Kodo Village, this new studio recording compliments the stage production 'Kodo One Earth Tour: Mystery' directed by Kabuki legend Tamasaburo Bando. The seeds for this album and production were planted in 2003, when Kodo asked Tamasaburo Bando to direct one their shows. In 2012, Bando was appointed Kodo's artistic director. There is less (although still plenty) of the trademark energetic beating of drums, and a more subtle, greater variety of sounds, rhythms and styles.

Underground Railroad

SOUL FLOWER UNION

Underground Railroad

Ref: FSD6605


Price: 23.99

New album and first for four years from Kansai's finest Soul Flower Union. Sticks fairly close to the tried and tested SFU formula of big production upbeat celtic tinged rock with political lyrics, apart from a couple of diversions into dub and a slightly stripped down sound. Lead vocalist Takashi Nakagawa also plays a bit of sanshin and bouzouki along with his electric guitar, to a basic bass, drums, keyboards accompaniment, with about 20 musicians adding more guitars, mandolin, electric sitar, banjo, clarinet, fiddle, trumpet, trombone, sax (latter three all from the excellent Black Bottom Brass Band) and just about the kitchen sink to create the swirling wall of sound that is Soul Flower Union. Overall, another gem to add to their already acclaimed discography. Comes with English translations of the lyrics.

Ever wondered what Tokyo sounded like 55 years ago? While the visual differences are obvious, the aural differences are all the more interesting. All recorded in 1959, the sounds of Tokyo train staion, music of a Geisha, bonfire festival, a festival at a shrine, a street festival, fish market, children playing on the streets, an early Jazz house in Asakusa. Many of these sounds have come to symbolise the sound of the Showa period. Originally released in 1959 as an LP record this CD is compiled from the original LP. Comes with a booklet including an essay by Asato Izumi and interesting photos of Tokyo in the Showa period taken by Takeo Akiyama.
