This release shines a light into the dark and yet strangely uplifting world of Inryo-fuen's early '80s wonderland. It's a surreal, adventurously analogue, positively negative realm of freedom. Following the release of Inryo-fuen's enigmatic 'Ho-Aku', 'Early Years 1980-82' collects the band's earliest recordings, originally released on flexi and vinyl, here re-edited, re-mixed and remastered. With enlightening notes by band member Jun Harada providing historical background and recording information, stressing their love of improvisation and their ongoing quest for liberation, this is a landmark release, offering a glimpse into a hitherto inaccessible netherworld of the Tokyo/Yokohama post-punk underground. The music here, all improvised, with many of the pieces recorded live, have an edge-of-the-world electricity, informed by the group's fascination with the Surrealist idea of Automatic Writing. The launch point is a brutalist, knuckle-dragging Conrad/Faust thug-riff featuring the hectoring rants of a stage-invading student activist, dramatically melded with the music by the sound engineer. From there we traverse manifold realms, variously propulsive and static, dense and pointillistic, threatening and whimsical, opaque and translucent. Inryo-fuen's searching use of the basic rock instrumentation of drums, bass and guitar is augmented with keyboards and, on one piece, acoustic instrumentation. No
overdubs, no vocals. Only sound and freedom. Six tracks on CD, with English and Japanese liner notes, and photos..

Also available: EARLY WORKS 1980-82 (LP).
