Les Rallizes Dénudés (裸のラリーズ, Hadaka no Rallizes) were one of the earliest and most influential / bands from Japan, and have existed off and on through four decades.
The group has notoriously shrouded itself in mystery, seldom touring and releasing very few records, usually with no discernible label. Their sound presages the later psychedelic experimental noise of 不失者 (Fushitsusha), High Rise and others in the current crop more than any other Japanese psychedelic group from the late 1960s.
They were formed in 1967, and the band was known for their ties to avant-garde theater groups (as typified by Shuji Terayama's troupe) and leftist political groups, as well as for their feedback-drenched live shows and use of strobe lights and mirror balls onstage, which earned them comparisons to The Velvet Underground.
