Show Notes

Boku dake ga - Angel'in Heavy Syrup
Angel'in Heavy Syrup CDs are now very hard to come by, however this best of collection is available through iTunes.

Tokyo Koushinkyoku - Satou Chiyako
Seishun Uta Nenkan is a series of compilations that collects music such as Ryuukouka, Kayoukyoku, and Enka, beginning with 1928 and continuing through the 1990s. Last summer I did a feature on the first in this series, which features songs from 1928 - 1933. You can find the notes here.

Time Limit - Pia-no-jaC
Depending upon where you look, the album is listed under its English translation. I have provided both for you.

Go-Go Group Sounds Japan
This collect was released by the Australian label Maniakku-Beat (Maniac Beat). Unlike the GS I Love You series, there are no liner notes, but it does contain songs not often found on other group sounds collections.

Fantastic Plastic Machine and Buffalo Daughter
Both of these CDs were released in the U.S. by Emperor Norton Records, which is now defunct. However, used copies aren't difficult to find.

Bungu - GO!GO!7188
This song was first released on the band's second album Gyotaku. Gyotaku is still in print and Best Of GO!GO! is available through iTunes. The band's name is pronounced "Go Go Nana Ichi Hachi Hachi".

Shampoo - Jude
Jude is one of the many projects of Asai Kenichi (Sherbets, Ajico, Blankey Jet City, etc.) It is pronounced "Yuuda", however on air I say "Jude" so it is easier for the listener to remember the band's name. Shampoo was first released as a single before being made available on this Best Of collection. Jude is currently on hiatus as Asai focuses on his solo work as well as Sherbets.

Tewa Tori Aeru - aus
Cokiyu provided the female vocals on this song. A frequent collaborator of aus, her music is released in Japan by his label Flau. In addition writing her own music, she plays toy piano in Shugo Tokumaru's live band.

Mugetsu - DJ Krush & Toshinori Kondo
Toshinori Kondo is an avant-garde, jazz, and jazz fusion trumpeter. Ki-Oku is the only release DJ Krush and Kondo have collaborated on so far.
