Christine 23 Onna biography
Starting the year 1993, Maso Yamazaki (already a progressive electronic personality, with bands like Massona or Space Machine) joined with guitarist Toda Fusao, from Angel'in Heavy Sryup, to form CHRISTINE 23 ONNA, a modern eclectic electronic arrangement, which passes, musically and stylistically, through all kinds of electronic influence or new addiction, but also through some rock or psychedelic trended-out new sensations.

Fusao's spent role in Angel'In Heavy Syrup revealed his depth and musicality, in a style where sounds combine lyricism or modern haze. Having opened for space rock referential bands like HAWKWIND and GONG, Fusao earned some experience from that as well.

Nevertheless, the main artist, in CHRISTINE 23 ONNA, sensed by the music's entire program, is Maso Yamazaki, which chooses another kind of sound and expression for this band, than the ones he interpreted in Space Machine (trippy, spacey, experimental sonic) or Massona (a bit more popular and stylist-beaty). Most responsible, the band adopts a blend of senseful psychedelic nuances, under the space electronic, rapid-pulse new-wave sequence or the sensible electronic melody fusion. Just like the experimental basis can have sometimes a more modern or pop fashion, the influence stretches not only to the new-timed electronic phase, but to psychedelic, cosmic, acid-lounge or distorted rock - not in the utmost convincing way, yet in a reflection that desires eclecticism and strong personality. The artwork resembles some great ASHRA inclinations, while the music itself has something that good electronic artists (or artisans) worn out in the entire classic (or progressive phase).

In live concerts, the duo covered music obscurities or classic interpretations, such as Cromagnon, Tony Conrad or Afterglow. Later, and with a couple of guest musicians, they started playing their own music. With three main albums so far, CHRISTINE 23 ONNA mastered, or has put a definite impact, on progressive ideas such as cosmic minimal music, synthesizer overload and sound-trance, retro electronic, noise bend style or modern acid render.

Finally, if the duo simply calls their work a "space mondo psychedelic" program, and chronicles generally point out the stuns of rock, psychedelic, noise and electronic in their sound, the effect and depth of CHRISTINE 23 ONNA can get to a bit more various and progressive kind. At least in a modern electronic interest which largely consumes the simple am...

4 stars Exactly another addictive agent, this mysterious music "Sexaholia" is.

CHRISTINE 23 ONNA were founded as one of Maso YAMAZAKI's projects (like Masonna, Space Machine, or South Saturn Delta), by Maso and Fusao TODA (ex-Angel'in Heavy Syrup) in 1998. This critical electronic duo have given a music strategy for "a fusion of the psychedelic phrases of accomplished guitarist and composer Fusao, and the spacey electronics of Maso (quoted from their website)", quite different from the other projects of Maso mentioned above.

Gradually invaded into my deep brain and instantly broken the tissue structure in pieces ... I'd not been fond of this album indeed, but amazingly it was only a fake. Got immersed in such a loud, annoying atmosphere through the acid sound-garden created by two rox / sex experts.

Consider that their soundscape can be divided into three fragments basically. One is a comfortable "pop" world soiled / violated with a bunch of irritating noise dirts (like the very beginning stuff "Fantasisco" or "The Last Hunter" or so, heavy, deep, and danceable groove numbers along with their catchy sense), one is an electronic ambiance like "Unknown Planet", with meditative, hallucinogenic medication spice (actually this frag is my favourite, where I can get drenched fully in their transcendental meditation with the basic human activity), and one is an acid noisy dirty violation itself (e. g. "Acid Now!", the titled one or the last "Erotopia - The Climax"). Yeah dazzling capricious states of sound can be attractive for us too, let me say.

We can feel sometimes go-ahead-ly enthusiastic, sometimes mysteriously inspirational, and sometimes toughly nauseous. And finally we will get absorbed deeply into their mischievous electronic sound structure with heavy, loud guitar noises and deep, percussive rhythm quakes. Honestly I cannot help recommending this funkadelic electronic explosive album for every freak elektronika. Woohoo.

Review by thehatsdurango

4 stars I've been trying to buy a hard copy of this ever since I heard it, which was a couple of hours after hearing Shiny Crystal Planet at a friend's house (a download). It's mostly programmed stuff, instrumental, with absolutely loads of great synthesizer noises all the way through which sound somewhat like an afterthought but actually lift a good record into the stratosphere of druggy space rock. No longwinded noodling here. It is their second best album by a whisker and stands out like a beacon amongst the morass of bland number ticking that passes for progressive music these days. Christine 23 Onna push all my buttons and raise a smile every time I hear them. I'm not going to intellectualise, these guys (a guy and a girl) seriously rock in a superspace way. It reminds me of Hawkwind meeting disco and jazz, taking drugs and having a jam. Absolutely delicious. There's no point in dancing about architecture here, check it out, love it, tell your friends and maybe we can get a hard copy re-released.

4 stars Christine 23 Onna is a super-sexadelic electronic rock project formed by Maso Yamazaki (Space Machine). This is clearly in the vein of others Japanes neo-hippie eccentricities with a constant fascination, nostalgy for retro-psychedelic rock stuffs, kitsch groovy sounds and kosmische dementia. This japanese scene is very prolific and the musical quality is not always at the top, however it provides a few surprises, Acid Eater is one of them. I'm not sure that you can find trippiest / kitshiest things today. Christine 23 Onna delivers wild, freaky kosmische-kraut compositions full of molecular / cosmic noises and irresistable fuzzed psychedelic rockin' epics. Fantastico opens the dance with a sulfurous, sexy fuzzy psych groovy rock composition, distorted by abundant electronic oscillations, crazy hammond organs. The rest is exactly in the same line, deliciously kitschy, reasonating as a perfect pastiche of things offered in the golden sphere of classic psychedelic rock. Imagine something between Klaus Schulze (without the dark side), cheesy pop electronics from J.J Perrey, Cecil Leuter, the acid pop of Kaleidoscope and the sound of 60's sexy groovin' parties. This stuff would be perfect as soundtrack for old vintage-B grade films released by directors Russ Meyer (Beyond the valley of the dolls), Roger Corman (The trip), Jess Franco (Vampyros Lesbos) and many others. Nicely made, this stuff will propulse you back to the late 60's.
