Yesterday I have received this DVD. After no luck in finding it in any european store, I've ordered it at Aquarius Records.
Shipping was fast (USA to Italy in 14 days) and price was cheap ($22.38 including shipping fee).
I highly recommend anyone enjoying Koenji Hyakkei to get this DVD: the band is fully capable of playing the
entire Angherr Shisspa even faster!
But if you like KH, you know that it is not just about the technique.. Either you find them amusing or not, but if you do,
looking at them while playing their songs gives you an excellent feeling.
The drummer has an easy flow whatever he does, even when playing some complex line while yelling intricates lyrics.
The keyboardist is precise and energetic.
The bass player is astoundingly rich in his sound.
The reed player is somewhere in between improvisation and Hey-I-Know-Exactly-What-I-Am-Doing-And-I-Will-Do-It-Again.
The soprano has great voice and a disquieting presence.

28 Oct 2007, 23:34 by gwallaI bought these CDs a couple of weeks ago, but haven't gotten around to reviewing them until now partly because it took a while to listen to all of them, and partly due to procrastination. Maybe in future I'll buy fewer at a time so I can write up reviews in a timely manner. Anyway, enough of that, it's time for capsule reviews:
- Bulletboys: Freakshow — Found this hair metal album combing through the clearance bin at Rasputin's. Normally, I would have just looked at the ridiculous outfits on the back cover, chuckled, and put it back, but I noticed that the first track was titled Hang on St. Christopher. Huh? As in the Tom Waits song Hang On St. Christopher? Done hair metal style? With such a weird combination, I had to pick it up. The results are predictably dire—they really, really wanted by to be Van Halen but didn't have the chops—and the original tunes are totally forgettable. Hang On St. Christopher is a fascinating mess, a totally stylistically wrongheaded cover done without any irony. …
25 Oct 2007, 17:26 by DorklingStick welding is a difficult but ultimately rewarding process. Learning to do it makes you manly and marketable. You know what else does that? Not listening to bizarre music, but I know you want to anyway so here are some high points of my freshmen year so far.
Koenji Hyakkei-totally insane, operatic vocals in a language no one will ever understand (no not japanese) as well as hypnotic chanting is pulled together with a very Battles-esque form of musical composition, well worth a look.
Please Inform the Captain This is a Hijack-this is probably my favourite find of the new semester so far, robot obsessed political punk with a passion for sampling, creating catchy, charged songs, A Completely New Weapon is a great song.
Holy Fuck-a lofi electronica project with really awesome results, the tracks sync together really well so for a really tasty listen the whole self titled album is a must. i pretty much listened to it on loop for a week straight.
24 Apr 2007, 23:09 by estahVahepeal käivad sellised hood peal, kui ma kahman endale nii palju tundmatut muusikat kui vähegi võimalik ja üritan siis kuidagi seda hoomama hakata. Praegu on ka selline hoog peal. Soovitusi on jaganud sõbrad, olen käinud oma naabreid luuramas siinsamas last.fm-is, lugenud siit-sealt ja noh, nagu ikka.
On surevaid meeshääli, rrriotgöörle, uusi asju, üht-teist aastakümnete tagant, magmat ja diskot ja zeuhli ja kitarre ja arvuteid, Jaapanist ja Islandilt ja UK-st ja Saksamaalt ja Eestist jne... ühesõnaga väga eklektiline valik.
Mõni bänd on mulle ammusest ajast teada, aga pole siiani kohale jõudnud või on lihtsalt külmaks jätnud. Kuna ma ei taha, et mõne teise imelise kollektiiviga läheks nagu Arcade Fire´iga (kaks aastat mahavisatud aega, kui ma neid kuulata ei taibanud :( ), siis ma üritan uuesti mõnega suhet luua. Mõnest alljärgnevast artistist ei tea ma aga mitte midagi peale selle, et nende kuulajail minu jaoks sobiv maitse on. …

4 Jul 2006, 00:18 by mublAnyway, I was listening to Ain Soph the other day, in particular their concept album 神秘の森 (A Story Of Mysterious Forest), and in particular
組曲: 妖精の森 【目覚め/密かな憧憬-微風/神秘の森/燃ゆる想い/深き眠り/闇夜の中で/小人たちの踊り/予言者の告示[失意]/神秘の森/目覚め】
which roughly translates to "Epic Song: The Story Of The Mysterious Forest "
But I digress.
Basically, this song, and in particular, this album, is excellent for anyone who enjoys the likes of Rush, Jethro Tull or 高円寺百景.
Ain Soph, however, are not Japanese as they would have you believe. They're actually Italian. I found this out not long ago.
*EDIT: I found out later that there are two Ain Sophs, an Italian one and a Japanese one. The Japanese one are the good one. Not Italian.*
