Price: $20.00
"Shizuka were THE great lost-in-action group of the Tokyo underground psych scene during the early to mid-90s. Led by doll-maker Shizuka, and with ex-Fushitsusha alumni Maki Miura and Jun Kosugi on hand, they created some of the most fragile and intense acid-rock of their time, but remained largely undocumented and under appreciated. The gig documented on this CD, recorded at Bears in Osaka in 1995, was long whispered of amongst the cognoscenti. It catches them at a near-divinely inspired peak of fucked-up narcotic bliss. Shizukas uncanny vocals and tremulous sense of timing washing like brown sugar over fluid nebulae of guitar and drum nirvana, peaking and churning in perfect, weightless filigrees of light, cosmic cold and invisible motion. Miuras guitar playing is just jaw-dropping. Booklet includes lyrics in Japanese and English." -PSF

"Visual tribute to Shizuka, one of the most distinctive psychedelic voices in the Tokyo underground, who tragically passed away on January 31st (2010). This DVD captures the last ever performance by her group, recorded live at ShowBoat in Tokyo on December 30, 2008. As ever, the focus is upon Shizukas delicate, uncanny vocals and tremulous sense of timing which meld with the overwhelmingly emotive white-hot nebulae of ex-Fushitsusha axeman Maki Miuras guitar. Together the narcotic voice and the guitar peak and churn in perfectly weightless filigreed forms of light, darkness, cosmic cold and invisible motion. At their best, the Shizuka group were one of the distinctively original voices in the Japanese psych scene. Ten tracks, 74 minutes. NTSC region-free DVD. Limited edition of 500." -- Alan Cummings.

"Debut release by this band, previously heard on Tokyo Flashback III. Pretty great 3 piece rock bank, with exquisite female vocals by Shizuka; some tracks are in a darkish, somber range with piano and cello embellishment, others have staggering, practically Haino-esque fuzz guitar throughout." - FE. 1994 release.
