Thoughts of the Day #25/2014: Robert Smithson (4) / Sadahiro Yamada

Robert Smithson (1938-1973)
(copyright owners please read: p.s. at the bottom of this post, thank you)

"A precarious balance existed somewhere between tree and the dead leaves. The gravity lost itself in a web of possibilities; as one looked more and more possibilities emerged because nothing was certain. Nine of the twelve mirrors in the photographs are plainly, two have sunk into shadow. One on the lower right is all but eclipsed. The displacement is divided into five rows. On the site rows would come and go as the light fell.

Countless chromatic patterns patches were wrecked mirrors, flakes of sunshine dispersed over the reflecting surfaces and obliterated the square edges, leaving indistinct pulverizations of color on an indeterminate grid."

"Ok to exist doing nothing"

Sadahiro Yamada : Vocal And Guitar
Yuka Ijichi : Guitar
Doronco : Bass
Hiiragi Fukuda : Drums
Live Recorded : April 29th 2004

Selection super session Japanese style. 
Live and on fire in Tokyo 2004.

We have Selection's own Hiiragi Fukuda on drums and Yuka Ijichi on blazing guitars along with Kiyohiro "Doronco" Takada (Les Rallizes Denudes!) on bass and of course the star of the show, Sadahiro Yamada (visionary and owner of the fine Cho Yamada Dou record store in Kokubunji, Tokyo. ) fully up front on guitar and vocals.

An intense night of raw psychedelia (thankfully) recorded for your pleasure. Will excite fans of Les Rallizes Denudes, Doronco Gumo, Pre-blueswailing era Major Stars and most guitar bands on P.S.F. Records.
