For almost forty years, the bizarre and innovative self-titled album by Yasuo Sugibayashi’s The Mask of the Imperial Family has existed officially only on 300 vinyl copies. Now, to the delight of aching fans and the disappointment of Discogs touters, the record has finally received the reissue treatment from the aptly-named Important Records. From the highly inventive, liquid-ritual textures that propel these experiments to a minimalist cover art design that doesn’t look a day aged, this is a remarkable piece of Japanese experimental electronic music history.
