Biography

There are at least four bands named Complex: a Japanese rock supergroup, a British psychedelic rock group, a Tanzanian band, and a Finnish punk band.

1)COMPLEX is a Japanese rock band formed in 1988 with Koji Kikkawa (吉川晃司) as lead singer and his long time friend Tomoyasu Hotei (布袋寅泰) from the legendary rock band BOØWY on guitar.
Making two albums both of which went to number one in the national charts, Complex remained as one of the most popular bands in Japan until their split in 1990.

2) A psychedelic rock uk group. Their two albums are among the most sought-after artefacts of British psychedelia. Only 99 copies of each album were pressed. Despite the fact the debut album was recorded in November 1970 it sounds like it’s straight out of the Summer of love. Basically we’re talking echo-laden organ-driven garage psychedelia which is marred only by poor sound quality. Eight of the eleven compositions were penned by Steve Coe and a guy called Mitchell, two were Steve Coe compositions and the finale, Live For The Minute, was the product of a Coe-Shakespeare songwriting collaboration. This has lots of fine guitar organ interplay. Other highlights are Witch’s Spell and Storm On The Way, both notable for some punchy organ work and strong vocals and Self Declaration, which has lots of fuzzy guitar and cheesy organ. A couple of tracks, Josie and Madamoiselle Jackie veer more towards pop with a commercial edge.

    It's amusing to me that the 60s guy can't just open his mind and let these two artists share the page in harmony.
