Les Rallizes Denudes

'77 Live (3LP)

Label: Temporal Drift

Format: 3LP

Genre: Psych

In stock


** 3LP, black vinyl edition**  Temporal Drift presents the first-ever officially sanctioned reissue of celebrated Japanese cult band Les Rallizes Dénudés’ three albums, originally compiled and released in limited quantities on CD in 1991. Led by the enigmatic Takashi Mizutani, Les Rallizes Dénudés has gained an almost mythical status the world over with their delicate balancing act between transcendent psychedelia and pure sonic assault, maintaining its status as an underground phenomenon throughout their three decade existence and beyond.

'67-'69 Studio et Live, Mizutani / Les Rallizes Dénudés, and ‘77 LIVE are the only albums released during Les Rallizes Dénudés’ lifetime, between its formation in 1967 at Doshisha University in Kyoto to its last-ever show in 1996 at Club Citta in Kawasaki. Produced by Mizutani, the three discs collectively provide a window into the (in)famously impenetrable band’s first decade of existence. 

'67-'69 Studio et Live features early recordings that capture the reckless energy of the band’s formative years in Kyoto. Includes early takes of Rallizes staples “Memory is Far Away” and “The Last One,” the rare tender ballad “Bid Calls in the Dark,” possibly Mothers of Invention-inspired (complete with a kazoo solo) “Vertigo otherwise My Conviction.” The CD edition includes two previously unreleased bonus tracks, including a take on the classic stomper “Tobacco Road” (more Blues Magoos than Nashville Teens.)

Produced in collaboration with The Last One Musique, the new label set up by former members and associates of Les Rallizes Dénudés, '67-'69 Studio et Live  features newly remastered audio by former Rallizes member Makoto Kubota and new liner notes by Yuasa Manabu.

The long-awaited reissue of Les Rallizes Dénudés' '77 LIVE, recorded live in Tachikawa, Tokyo on March 12, 1977, in a first-time ever 3LP. Experience the miraculous one-and-a-half hour live performance that brings you flood spree of sounds and transformative improvisation.
