Killing Time biography
KILLING TIME, a Japanese experimental jam band, gave their first cry in 1982 by three session artists - Bun ITAKURA (guitar), Kazuto SHIMIZU (keyboard, piano), and MA*TO (keyboard, tabla) - previously belonging to a Japanese techno / new wave outfit Chakra. Around the three founders, the band formation had got changed flexibly and frequently for stages or events in their early years. In 1986, they released their first album 'BOB' via inviting Neko SAITOH (violin), MECKKEN (bass), and WHACHO (percussion) as formal players.

With Jun AOYAMA (drums) recruited as a member soon after that, KILLING TIME had appeared on stage or released five albums (including one compilation) via a Japanese label Epic Sony as a seven- or eight-piece band. In 1988, they joined the soundtrack 'Kaisha Monogatari - Memories Of You'.

Since 2004 they sometimes appear on stage despite of long suspension in mid 1990s or in early 2000s.

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

4 stars This album SKIP is the second one of KILLING TIME, a Japanese bizarre experimental jam outfit formed in 1982 by three Chakran guys. They have introduced various worldwide music scenes, brought various instruments, and played skillfully for every situation under their imaginary tale. In this story (album) SKIP, each of them acted a part or two of the stage play named SKIP ... so interesting situation I feel.

Highly energetic blaster has come from the beginning track "SKIP". The percussive starter like raindrops can splash killing attacks all around. Not only drums and percussion but also guitar, bass, electric piano, or violin ... all can be completely percussive and scattered for this song. As if we join a riot goin' on, all around us can be broken into pieces. And for us rioters this messy ground (including some ethnic percussion solo in the middle part) can be very impressive regardless of achy breaky loudness. This strategy sounded upon "SKIP" is even now very novel ... although it was released over twenty years ago. Let me say, absolutely one of the masterpieces in Japanese avantgarde progressive rock scene.

As one and only exception, the second track "Hearing Without A Break While Not Hearing A Break" is something of comfort. Very pleasant and delightful tabla flow and massively relaxing xylophone knocks ... based on ethnic impressing djembe-like percussion ... can absorb us into fantasy scene. On the contrary, Discipline Crimson-ish sounds (wow) can be heard in the third "One For Each Sentiment", along by this violin-based (might Neko be a follower of David Cross huh?) whacked-out soundroad. The last "Sunset" might be featured in Japanese traditional music Gagaku methinks. Eccentric horn, wind, and string sections can twine and squeeze together, then eerie structure can be born in this termination.

Surprising that KILLING TIME could make a formal contract with a Japanese major label Epic Sony. Might there be a manager who could understand them and their bizarre style?

Thanks to DamoXt7942 for the artist addition.
