Re: [avant-progressive] Japanrocksampler
- "I heard everybody in Japan hates Julian Cope's "JapRockSampler".
seems not to have liked his Krautrocksampler either."
Haven't read the JapRockSampler, but if Cope gave this scene a similar
treat as the krauts, it's not a bad thing at all.
The KrautRockSampler is full of faults, misses and wrong
interpretations. It's also a challenge just judging the language,
especially if you depend on the german translation (which is really one
of the worst I have ever read!). But it's entertaining and so full of
enthusiasm that it did more for Krautrock in the world than all the
other serious articles and books on this matter.
So look at it that its aim is to make japanese outsider music more
popular, and if this happens the book did it right!
