About the album
A burning CD of improvisations by these two instrumental masters, who have been involved in some of the most exciting bands out of the Japanese underground scene of the past twenty years. Yoshida is in a particulary inspired mode, as Uchihashi outdoes himself on this one using a guitar language of such variety and imagination it sounds like a consortium of guitarists! Noise, surf, blues, jazz, rock and more all get cut up in Barisshee, one of the most extreme drum duos ever recorded. Another cutting edge project from these two legendary superstars out of the Japanese underground!
