Review by DamoXt7942
FORUM & SITE ADMIN GROUP Avant, Crossover & Neo Teams
2 stars KOUSOKUYA are one of important outfits in Japanese underground rock scene, formed by three psychedelic daredevils full of originality. Their position in Japanese psychedelic rock world stands upon especially Jutoku's loud, heavy, trippy, dog-barking guitar solo with Rallizaec feedback facing directly him and his guitar itself. Also Ikuro's flat and simple drumming under flexible kaleidoscopic tempo and Mick's deep creepin' bass sounds both are very important to support all of Kousokuyan family and audience.

Mick's voices sound like, as everyone says, exactly weird incantation or magician's spelling, where are fates of catastrophic and despairing inferno delirium. Maybe for KOUSOKUYA, her no-good voices with uncontrollable tones can season this outfit with much weirdness like ghosts from under (for me not at all though ... very strangely her shouts can be mismatched any other instruments methinks). They all rush into underground, able to be called as their home ground utterly with plenty of colour of improvised free jamming psychedelia. However, let me say that, mysteriously there is a rigid unity around their play continuously. Partially like Acid Mothers Temple Speed Guru's one, Jutoku's guitar solo (beyond expression for me) can go ahead into sanctuary, regretfully with some cheap and cheesy tape effects and mixing.

And who knows the reason they (Jutoku) can effectively use such a simple noise like chopping some randomized guitar chords? His great suggestive loud guitar sounds obviously should be much influenced by takashi Mizutani's exploded feed backing ones. (And cheesy voices either? Cannot believe them ... )

Good stuffs are indeed good stuffs, except some vertiginous voices should break their serious atmosphere into scattered pieces, sorry.
