Default Les Rallizes Dénudés

Any fans? If not...



This band should be your life. Worship them.





Learn:
Les Rallizes Dénudés - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Consume: WEHAVENOZEN: LES RALLIZES DENUDES

I can particularly recommend 'Heavier Than A Death In The Family' and 'Blind Baby Has Its Mothers Eyes'

I played some videos of these guys for my friends and they thought it sounded like Band Of Gypsys - which I can get to, closest thing in their experience and also a transcendent similarity - but then they also thought it was right on the line between noise and music, almost not really music at all, and of course that is clearly not the case... It gets far noisier than this, and less melodic.

Aye. Indeed it's more like proto-noise in places but mostly just comes off as The Shoegaze Band Of The Gods, a good 15 years before the term came about. The cult that keeps their bootlegs circulating is incredible, they were never signed...

I think I was converted listening to them for the first time ridiculously loud, back pressed against the wall (perfect speaker positioning), unslept for 36 hours... LRD's definitely calling from the same ethereal plain as My Bloody Valentine and V.U.

Chapterhouse they ain't.

EDIT: a bit more info on Mizutani's baby as the wiki is so poor.
Unfortunately Julian Cope's headheritage.com is down; his book Japrocksampler single-handedly alerted myself and I imagine most of Last.fm's 700 listeners to this incredible music.

For some reason, those videos reminded me of Bardo Pond, they sound a lot like them to me.

yeah 'Heavier Than A Death...' is the same recordings under a different title, I'm not sure there is much difference (different track titles?).

But yes, long overdue the 2XCD/live-DVD digipak Columbia super-deluxe reissue treatment I think

Saw them in Japrocksampler.
I got Live '77 a while ago, but I deleted it for some reason.
I'll probably relisten to it.
