Christine 23 Onna
Led by Japanese synth master Maso Yamazaki of Masonna, et al. and aided by Fusao Toda of Angel in Heavy Syrup, this album is a monster Acid Fueled lounge party. Picture Austin Powers as directed by Terry Gilliam with a soundtrack of Sergio Mendes zonked on a hearty dose of Owsley bred Acid and you're coming close. Heavy on the bop and fuzzed out beyond belief, then wrung through a giant phaser and shaded violet. Maso's skewed version of the swinging 60's on Acid Eater is far beyond anything that could be called retro or even campy. This is a rift in time, Maso's gone back and showed the LSD set how to really blow speakers and minds. Once again the Japanese remain the reigning kings of the psychedelic set and this along with any other Maso Yamazaki release is full testament to that claim. Crank this one up, the fuzz needs room to breathe.
