- Live At Namba Bears by Kawabata Makoto & Anla Courtis
8/10 Brian Staff review, 10 January 2013
This record is on astonishing coloured vinyl, like some yellow sickness splatter yawn design. We have an old boy comes in a few times a week to spend the DSSS’s (or whatever these assholes are calling themselves these days) money on his (and our) obsession and he’d just gaze wistfully at this and say “oh, such beautiful things....” and probably buy it to take home and gaze at some more. This is art baby. ART.
Makoto is one of those old fuzzy-haired trip-face grandads from Japan whose full time job is with the Acid Mothers Temple, a band so prolific they should be given some kind of award or psychiatric treatment for overactive jamming. This album hurts my ears a little when it gets noisy (there are quieter reflective passages too, this isn’t that full-frontal), being a collaboration with Argentine improv god Anla Courtis.
Around a third of the way into its duration the inside of my skull is being raped by volcanic rumble, haunting wail and metallic shards of feedback. This is a psychedelic record in the mind-pulverising atonal manner of Skullflower or Leeds’s own Ashtray Navigations. Like, say, the aural book on ”How to construct psychedelia for murderous twisted cretins”, and although it’s possibly a rather unpleasant listen for some, I often find that this form of atmospheric six-string menace often cleanses the mind-palate and leaves you ready for anything bar neo-nazi rallies or British terrestrial TV. Lovely sleeve art too, reminds me of that Kelpe sleeve from years ago.
