Genre: Experimental

Out of stock

Vanity was a legendary Osaka-based underground label from the late 70s/early 80s. They released albums of primitive electronics by the likes of Aunt Sally, Sympathy Nervous, Dada, Sab, BGM, etc. None have been officially reissued (besides the first Aunt Sally I guess) and the original LPs have been basically unfindable anywhere in the western world since the day of release. This is a reissue of the 2nd Tolerance album, originally issued in 1981. Their music has been described as almost proto-Ambient Techno. Tolerance, consisting of Junko Tanage and Masmai Yoshikawa, were the only band that released a second album on Vanity. Their first LP (Anonym, 1979) was supposedly the source for the title of the second Nurse With Wound LP, To The Quiet Men From A Tiny Girl. The label was founded by Yuzuri Agi (he was also rumored to have ran Voice records, which in 75-76 released the ultra-mysterious Brast Burn and Karuna Khyal LPs). The following label manifesto was published in 1979: 'We will produce records pursuing 1). Electronics Music, 2). 'Music as Furniture' series (Modernistic Music), 3). Invation to Kayo-kyoku, 4). Music with experimental new vision (Punk., New Wave, Free Music, Modernistic Music, etc.).'
