* Limited edition of 199 copies, Urashima’s first ever reissue of the album furthers these insights, extending the original EP with six brand-new reworks. * Japanese solo project Jun Konagaya's Grim beautiful 1987 EP Message is his first and sole full folk music release, despite having an album called Folk Music in 1986 that was a classic industrial album, featuring Yukio Nagoshi, founding member of the Vasilisk unit, on guitar and percussion and A. Takahashi on vocals, with collaboration and technical support from Tomo Kuwabara, partner and co-founder with Jun Konagaya of the legendary group White Hospital. This EP kind of feels like walking through an ancient fairy tale forest, all hazy, and magical, and slightly creepy. 

Remastered and released in just 199 copies with the entire A-side enclosing the original six tracks and the B-side featuring the 2021 noise-oriented remix, Konagaya sets the darkside precedents of his EP, charging up its claustrophobic and nerve-wracking nature, and providing an incredible reworking noise of all the basic structure of it.
