Les Rallizes Dénudés - Great White Wonder
This massive live set, from one of the Japanese underground's primary influences, has been issued previously on CD but finds its way back to vinyl for the fist time since these live recordings were laid to
tape. The collection documents the feedback architects in fine from 1974-1977, the height of their destructive power. The band was one of the first to translate the power of American rock to their native country and they infuse the power and volume of Blue Cheer with the experimental fortitude of The Velvets to great success. These same influences, along with a few British impulses to imitate the blues seemed to form the backbone of the Japanese heavy psych sound and most bands seemed to learn at least a little something from Les Rallizes despite their impulses to release mostly live recordings on rather underfunded labels. The band's involvement with leftist politics and The Red Army led to their output and live appearances dwindling over the years but they picked back up for a final show in '96 and have enjoyed quite a healthy surge of interest in their reissues. This package is one of the best, and certainly one of the bulkiest in their fragmented history.
