Golden Avant-Garde biography
GOLDEN AVANT-GARDE were another short-lived project formed in 1985 by Chihiro SAITO, renowned as a founding member of KATRA TURANA and LACRYMOSA. Hoisting up a theme flag named 'incarnation of Cyber-rock', they gigged around Tokyo and released their eponymous album via a Japanese independent label Belle Antique in 1994. It's said they appeared on stage as Golden Avant-Garde Special with collaboration from Atsushi Hiroike (ex-Katra Turana) after Chihiro's cessation but were disbanded without any notice. For a while Chihiro had worked as a writer or an editor for Japanese progressive rock magazines 'Marquee' and 'Euro Rock Press'.

2 stars Another Japanese chamber rock world by Chihiro S., sandwiched between the former and the latter Lacrymosa"s", can sound more straight and rock-flavoured than Lacrymosa.

GOLDEN AVANT-GARDE were formed as a Cyber-rock project (for me this sounds like digitally-refined chamber rock or something) between Lacrymosa's hibernation in late 1980s. Guess Chihiro and the other members should try to climb a keen ice-rock-berg up for grasping their soundscape with more sharp-edged 'eavy rock essence, and as a result, this eponymous album could be released in front of us, chamber rock freaks. Based on Lacrymosa's chamber- and avant-ish hemisphere, they played typical-triplet-based "rock" here and there upon another side. The second track (and also the last one) "Pierrot De Fou" can be called as their masterpiece, with twin guitar floods, deep bass attacks, and heavy drum kicks (the closest to Lacrymosa's flavour of all in this album though). The opening one "Koe Naki Zekkyo" have full of critical moments in scattered guitar sounds and dry electronic bass effects.

Mysteriously, in the middle of this album we (at least I) can feel more eclectic texture (well, not only avantgarde but heavy, jazzy, electronic ... yes you know, exactly King Crimson just in Discipline period!) ... cannot ignore many Japanese progressive rock band should be much influenced by King Crimson or Pink Floyd, but so obviously as for them methinks. In my humble opinion, GOLDEN AVANT-GARDE should get Discipline-y, with a removal of serious chamber-ism from Lacrymosa, shouldn't they? I can understand why Chihiro should reunite Lacrymosa in mid 1990s and come back to such a serious chamber rock scene ... he might lose his point of view for a novel soundgarden sadly I imagine?

Anyway, a good album (not essential though), without any suspicion. However, I consider this album will not reissue or re-release in future at all. Because there's a banned (restrained?) word anywhere in this album. It's a pity.
