Title: Psyche De Loid
Format: LP
Label: New Records
Country: Spain
Price: $27.00
“Munehiro Narita, the original "psychedelic speed freak," is for many people the undisputed king of acid-fuzz guitar. Active since the late 70s, Narita is a Japanese psychedelic underground legend. After playing in cult bands like Kyoaku no Intention, he founded the brutal heavy-psych power trio High Rise in the 80s. His furious guitar playing, which involves lethal doses of fuzz-wah at earsplitting volume, can also be heard on his current band Green Flames (featuring Mitsuru Tabata from Acid Mothers Temple). In 2014 Narita released a Japanese-only CD titled Psyche De Loid, doing heavy guitar fuzzed-out covers of classic psych songs from the 60s/70s. But Psyche De Loid was also the first-ever psychedelic album recorded using Vocaloid technology. Very popular in Japan, Vocaloid is a software/singing synthesizer -- one enters the lyrics of a song into the program and adds music to generate a Vocaloid -- or "Vocal Android" -- which sing in bizarre, mostly female, android-type vocals. Vocaloid is often associated with J-pop but on Psyche De Loid Narita smashes this genre into a wall with the contrast of killer, Ron Asheton-like piercing fuzz-wah guitar and child-like android vocals, featuring surreal covers of tracks by The Stooges, Hendrix, Blue Cheer, Shocking Blue, Pink Floyd, MC5, Jefferson Airplane. . . . Previously available as a Japanese-only CD, this is the first-ever vinyl edition with new artwork.” - New Records.

Artist: NARITA, MUNEHIRO
Title: Narita
Format: CD
Label: PSF
Country: Japan
Price: $19.50
"First solo album by HIGH RISE and KYOAKU NO INTENTIONS six-string speed meister MUNEHIRO NARITA. Featuring a guest appearance by TAKASHI UENO of MAHEL SHALAL HASH BAZ, TENNISCOATS, and a couple of dozen MAJIKICK-related units fame. With High Rise currently on extended vacation, Narita has been burning up stages across Tokyo in his aggressive, free-jazz inflected improv rock unit Kyoaku no Intentions, and more recently in naked solo style. He has deconstructed the most thrilling elements of rock guitar pyrotechnics-wah-wahed smears, slowed down slides, sensual string bends-and retooled them into a far more subtle improvised psychedelia. Derrida with a Marshall stack." - PSF.
