The Stars biography
Another real Japanese psychedelia after White Heaven disbanded.

After releasing four albums as a leader of a Japanese psychedelic rock pioneer WHITE HEAVEN, You ISHIHARA (guitar, voices), renowned as a producer of a Japanese psychedelic band Yura Yura Teikoku, had groped through the foggy music scene for the real psychedelic rock. He released his first solo album 'Passivite' with his mates Michio KURIHARA (guitar) and Chiyo KAMEKAWA (bass) and this event could be how it all started ... in 1999 finally You, Michio, Chiyo, and Ken ISHIHARA (drums) formed The STARS, a real Japanese psychedelic outfit in the next generation.

The STARS released one EP 'Today' (2001) and two full albums 'Will' (2004) and 'Perfect Place To Hideaway' (2005) but upon You's own label Pedal Records MySpace page they announced their disbandment in 2008 shortly.

Review by DamoXt7942
Forum & Site Admin Group Avant, Crossover & Neo Teams

2 stars Can we realize what You ISHIHARA had groped for in the mini album Today ... really?

What You had tried to do in WHITE HEAVEN might be exploration and development of Japanese guitar-based psychedelic rock, and indeed the first album "Out" says so, without any suspicion. But please consider more, and we may find he might want to play more complex, more growling psychedelia rather than simple one. Yes listen to this "Today" and much perverse, complex melody line with You's growling and trailing voices in such seemingly simple phrases can jump into our brain directly and straightly. And you know, guess it may be very rare The STARS should be such a "crudely" guitar-fronted psychedelic rock all over the world ... in other words, this is crudely You's band featuring their loud, rampant, aggressive guitar solos and his rumblin' voices. We can understand this fact obviously listening only to the first track "Today". Very tense, very sensitive but very dynamic, amazing one.

The strained atmosphere is gonna change upon the next stage. "Bavard" is a bit pop, easy-listening, delightful but slightly bluesy rock number ... it sounds so in the former part. However don't be deceived. There are lots of eccentric and snaking (snailing?) elements in such a simplified dimension. Suppose these elements might be deeply in You's mind? Weird, very weird. The last "Wind In Three Quarter" is a straight and simple rock tune, less progressive though. Maybe closer to ones in White Heaven era methinks, but at the same time You might not have such an attitude that he leave such a previous (older) style.

This "Today" is EP so it should be tough case for us to understand their real thought about psychedelic rock but we can enjoy this one undoubtedly.

Thanks to DamoXt7942 for the artist addition.
