Hawaii is very good,I think that album is where Yamamoto begin to
focus.There is some great psychedelic passages,quirky pop/punk,a
quirky guitar based instrumental that has a cool Hawaiian solo,it
certainly would be a great OMoide album to start with.Here's hoping
he revives Omo someday!

not as meandering as Nu Frequency,and it has the beautiful Mantral

improv/jazzy/prog-ish,Rashinban I haven't heard,although I believe
Seiichi did the soundtrack to a movie called Adrenaline Drive,which
was more low key,pretty quirky instrumentals,nothing that stood
out.I think I might have mentioned before I didn't care for Sun
Kich.Alot of it is recorded so it's overly distorted and
buzzing,which ruins it for me.It's just the two guys messing
about,actually not too far removed from the Ruins-Hatoba cd.I wish
these guys would sit down and write some real songs.

>Novo TonoThis band also features Phew and Otomo Yoshihide. Sort of avant-
prog/pop band, similar to Demi Semi Quaver in places, but also
reminiscent of the 80s band After Dinner. I wish they'd release
another record, because this one has a lot of promise.
- The folks at Dusted have posted an MP3 from the latest Yamamoto
solo LP in their feature on Sounds from Japan:
- Could this be the first Yamamoto album that I ... don't like??? *gasp*
The mp3 was okay. Personally, I thought it a tad reminiscent of the
cheesier of 80s fusion, unfortunately. Perhaps he's hanging out with
the wrong crowd (these ROVO playin' types).
Anyway, does anyone know what this album is called?

- I recall buying one of Yamamoto's Tzadik albums a while back - I think it
was Baptism. It was a bunch of solo guitar pieces with mostly no effects.
The spareseness was interesting, and I enjoyed it for a little while, but
after three or four listens it found a fairly permanent home on my shelf and
hasn't really been played since.
That said, I adore his work with Rovo and pretty much everything else of his
that I've heard.
