The band's style is typified by simple, repetitious instrumental passages, shrieking, cacophonous guitar feedback and folk arrangement. Their discography is made up mostly of live bootlegs, soundboard archives and even a few rare aborted studio recording attempts as they have never officially released any of their own material, although there are archive releases on independent labels such as Univive, Rivista, Phoenix and Bamboo.
A few very sparse first person accounts and documentation describe Mizutani as an extremely introverted and reclusive individual with very nihilistic and solipsistic views Armed Robbery - Mr. Noise - Scamology life. It is also evident that he had very radical leftist views and supported the Japanese Red Army.
Supposedly, Mizutani was so dissatisfied with the sound of the recordings that he decided to completely abandon the idea of recording studio material. After that Night Of The Assassins - Les Rallizes Denudes - Studio & Soundboard , he made very rare studio visits making another unsuccessful studio recording attempt in Some of the more notable recordings from the —68 recording are "Otherwise My Conviction" and Fragile - SoundDiary - A Book In My Hand track which roughly translates to either "Birdsong" or "Cry of a Bird".
The latter of the two recordings was recycled often in their live sets. Later in they performed a live track that has gained some recognition as their first real foray into noise, the nearly 20 minute long "Smokin Cigarette Blues". Although poorly recorded, the recording is considered to be very important in the development of noise rock. Their live performances originally accompanied performances by avant-garde theater groups such as Shuji Terayama 's troupe.
Their performances were quickly deemed too loud and intense to back a theater performance, as it would be too distracting. One of their earliest and most infamous concerts was a concert at a Kyoto Kyoto University during the student protests that were going on at the time.
This particular concert was dubbed "Barricades-A-Go-Go". A posthumous compilation entitles "'67—'69 Studio Et Live" contains a recording of a live performance which may have been from that event. Wakabayashi has been living in North Korea Night Of The Assassins - Les Rallizes Denudes - Studio & Soundboard the hijacking.
Mizutani was allegedly offered a role in the hijacking, but turned it down. After this event, however, a paranoid Mizutani kept a low profile due to his ties with the Red Army, which he supposedly would eventually cut ties with in the early to mid 70s to avoid government scrutiny, although it remains unknown if he was ever affiliated with the Red Army at all. In they would appear on a limited edition live compilation "Oz Days Live", which was one of only two released recordings by the group that documented their current sound at the time the other being "Eve Night" from In the early 80s there was a drastic change in sound within the band as Mizutani had hired more musically competent musicians and replaced the rhythm guitarist with second lead guitarist Fujio Yamaguchi, whose much more bluesy and melodic delivery added tone color to the group that hadn't been heard before.
This time period is documented on "Double Heads", a comprehensive six-disc box set that documents three separate concerts from to In mid Yamaguchi left the group which was now downsized to a trio, which they would stay for the most part until they would break up in At this point their sound was much more sparse and atonal, as the bass was the sole melodic instrument in the group.
Their mid 80s to mid 90s sound bears many similarities to Ornette Coleman 's mid 60s work with his trio. Afterfor unknown reasons, their performances became much more sparse with most of their available 90's Night Of The Assassins - Les Rallizes Denudes - Studio & Soundboard and film footage originating fromand Their final concert was arranged under heavy secrecy, with the reason for breaking up possibly being legal reasons due to Mizutani's alleged past involvement with the Red Army.
The last time any known band member has been seen in public, with the exception of former guitarist Fujio Yamaguchi deceased and former bassist Doronco Gumo, was in when Mizutani performed a live free jazz concert with saxophonist Arthur Doyle and drummer Sabu Toyozumi, although an unknown source claimed to have seen him sometime after the date of the concert in France.
Mizutani had likely at least been alive up to due to his supposed approval of the Banzai released "Naked Diza Star" box set. It is unknown what his whereabouts are since his disappearance in or if he is still alive. Fushitsusha took many of the elements from Mizutani's group and furthered them in many ways, such as incorporating more freeform group improvisation. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
