Various - Vanity Records Demos 2xLP
Label: Vinyl On Demand
This 2xLP set collects a series of recordings recently discovered in Agi Yuzuru's archives and never released before on vinyl. It offers further insights about legendary Japanese cult DIY label Vanity Records and some of their groups. The first LP is Den Sei Kwan - P', an unpublished album from the cassette tapes owned by Aki Joe. Den Sei Kwan's crashing style of Pocket Planetaria recurs in a more intense form with increased compositional power. An album that can't be thought of as a work made nearly 40 years ago. The second LP is never heard before demos by Salaried Man Club, Onnyk, Den Sei Kwan and an excerpt taken from the HMN Session.
