Leningrad Blues Machine biography
In 1987, a guitarist TABATA had searched aggressively his original way for rock music after leaving from Boredoms. He had repeated lots of sessions with various players in studio, and could seize the opportunity to form LENINGRAD BLUES MACHINE in Kyoto. Around 1990s they had changed the members or hibernated over and over, but never had any studio-based releases.

In 2002, they migrated from Kyoto to Tokyo and built themselves up firmly with current members - TABATA (guitar), WATANABE (drums), and SHIMAJI (bass). Their colourful psychedelia mixed with jazz and funk essence could make them musically tighter and more versatile. Eventually LENINGRAD BLUES MACHINE released their first studio-recorded album 'Yajé' in 2004, among lots of gigs and sessions.

— First review of this album —
4 stars Not only psychedelic rock but eclectically mixed kaleidoscopic launcher, with jazz, funk, blues ...

LENINGRAD BLUES MACHINE have got advanced continuously methinks. I've heard they might have got started as a "pseudo" psychedelic jam band simply according to gigs in their early time, but in 2002 they could confirm the members and attitude for psychedelic progressive rock strictly I suppose. This album "Yajé" was their first full-studio-recorded one, that could alter the studio into the psychedelic progressive heaven. No need for us to say such difficult phrases, but alright only to listen to and enjoy this brilliant heavenly creation.

Anyway, whatever I say, please drop the CD player lens onto the disc. They open their musically versatile art curtain completely from the beginning ... wow, that's it! Our ears can touch directly their complexity and progressiveness around sounds and noises created with their talent of jazzy, funky, bluesy psychedelia. The rhythm section can be surely immersed into jazz rock / fusion, and Tabata's guitar solo can be whacked out deeply in his hallucinated mind. Though their voices are more freaked as if they should absorb themselves into mind-expanding substances, their play can be totally exploitable out. They, in this album, are hoppin', steppin', and jumpin' by making full use of instruments and ... yeah tremblin' air ... all around the heaven.

Here's a great stuff, that cannot be mentioned only with psychedelic rock manner. Recommended.

Thanks to DamoXt7942 for the artist addition.
