Re: Looking for Maher Shalal Hash Baz
- Even in Japan, the Maher Shalal Hash Baz CD is not available in stores (as
far as I know), you have to order it directly from the company, which is:
Osaka 583, Japan
If you've never heard MSHB before and are interested in them solely on the
basis of the rave review in the Wire, you might also want to check out
volume 2 or 3 of the Tokyo Psychedelic Flashback series of CDs on the PSF
label, both of which have one MSHB track (plus High Rise, Fushitsusha and
other Wire faves).
Good luck. Not only is the CD extremely obscure, it's breathtakingly expensive.
