Youtube sounded very cool, and the description of Band of Gypsys meets shoegaze is mindblowingly appealing.

Downloading presently.

They are kind of...blergh!
I mean, sure, you get a hard-on on your first listen, but I found the re playability to be quite less. Listen to them only once in a blue moon.

Ech, I was a bit obsessed with them when I started this thread, depends on your preferences I guess and your disposition to noise. Best soaked up on headphones night-walking or at 5am short of 48 hours sleep
They reflect a kind of overpowering numbness and cosmic doom... Les Rallizes were obscenely ahead of their time, I am genuinely surprised at their Last.fm listening figures aswell - always thought the 'cult' would be much larger.

You are right though Demonoid, there are not many of their 20-minute epics that garner repeated listens on my end either, it's not that kind of music. It's trippy sh*t, like Velvet Underground force-fed My Bloody Valentine records by a time-traveling wizard. Or some other media hyperbole

However I do think it is commonly acknowledged by all that have lighted upon it that 'Night of the Assassins' is one of the Great Lost Riffs. The mystique (i.e. total absence of any facts whatsoever) surrounding the group and it's leader also bolsters the sinister power of the music I feel

The genre I tried to put down for them on iTunes was 'The Velvet Underground and My Bloody Valentine Having a Fight in Japan... Meanwhile a Tonedeaf, Stoned Young Man Speaks Over the All the Noise'... although it didn't fit, so I put it in the comments.

Oh, I certainly liked whatever I've heard so far. And I'm intrigued as well, with the mystery surrounding this band and how the heck they came up with this wall of noise that weirdly draws you in. It's just that, the 10-15+ minute epics are what blew me away in the first place but I'm not able to re-listen unless I'm in the mood. (which happens rarely)

Listening to just one song doesn't work imo. Need to listen to it all the way through. And oh, headphones are the way to go with this band. Speakers = a BIG NO-NO.

I'm impressed, though they definitely take a bit of effort to appreciate. A full listen through the album can be a little draining, they're heavier than I actually expected.
In the end, the bass is what keeps me listening more than anything, I love how you can hear it skittering along under this wall of disonance.

Haven't been here in a while...

I know have about 10 of their albums. Perhaps one of the greatest bands ever. I'd give my right... arm... to see them live in their heyday.

I would get a Mizutani avatar, but looks like the avatar requests thread is closed :/
