Kirikyogen (CD)
After the release of the "Challenge" album in 1969 by the proto Flower Travellin Band, Yuya Uchida brought in Kuni Kawachi, organist and leader of The Happenings Four. They spent the early part of 1970 putting together a series of recordings which were very melodic, but psychedelic and strung out. This project surfaced as "Kirikyogen" by Kuni Kawachi and Friends after the demise of The Flower Travellin Band. Julian Cope rates Kirikyogen at number 25 in his top 50 Jap rock albums of all time: "An entire album of classic songs, featuring the aforementioned Flower Gods in pole positions throughout. (Akira Joe Yamanaka on lead vocal and Hideki Ishima on guitar). Moreover an early version of Flowers non-LP single "Map" lurks within, hiding behind the title "Music Composed Mainly By Humans". While dry, spaced out and highly original hard rocking ballads occupy side one, side two is possessed of a hitherto unseen acoustic side of Hideki Ishimas playing in the highly catchy "Graveyard Of Love", "Classroom For Women" and the late Velvets styled "Scientific Investigation". And while Joes tonsils never get the same rigorous overhauling that his Flower cohorts demand, even his most gentle contributions herein showcase "that" voice to perfection."
