-¢‚Ǩ-ìTori Kudo of Maher Shalal Hash Baz, together with Chie Ozeki (Maher Shalal Hash Baz), Tsukasa Takahashi (Che Shizu, Maher Shalal Hash Baz) and Mikiko Suzuki.

A cover of a song by Korean psychedelic rock legends Sanullim. Both a tribute to the band and a statement of solidarity and support for Japans Korean community, currently facing growing hostility from the Japanese right-wing.

7" includes an insert with a poem in Japanese and English by Japanese artist Junko Harada.-¢‚Ǩ¬ù
