On The Turntable: Keiji Haino's Watashi Dake? June 07 2017
Since the late '70s Keiji Haino has stood as figurehead for Japan's improv community, as black-clad psychedelic shaman with his signature incendiary guitar work and impassioned vocalizations.
Haino's debut album Watashi Dake?, originally released in 1981 on the legendary Pinakotheca label, was first heard by only a select few in Japan and far fewer overseas. Original copies have become impossibly rare and highly sought after the world over.
Black Editions' reissue, featuring metallic gold and silver artwork, is the first time that this avant-garde classic has been available on vinyl since its initial release.
