R.N.A. Organism - R.N.A.O Meets P.O.P.O LP


Label: Mesh Key

Deluxe, fully authorized reissue of R.N.A. Organism’s R.N.A.O Meets P.O.P.O (originally released by legendary Osaka label Vanity Records in 1980). 

A key document of the late ’70s experimental music scene in Kansai, Japan,  R.N.A.O Meets P.O.P.O is a hallucinatory trip of dubby bass, churning guitars, sputtering rhythm boxes, twisted vocals and unidentifiable sound effects. 

Produced by experimental music lifer Kaoru Sato (EP-4), R.N.A. Organism was a mysterious Kyoto trio known only by their aliases - 0123, Chance, and Zero. They never performed live, and instead sent pre-recorded tapes to venues for playback.

Remastered by Stephan Mathieu from brand new transfers of the original reel-to-reel tapes, cut by Josh Bonati, pressed by RTI, and housed in a hefty Stoughton tip-on sleeve, our edition also includes an expanded insert with an illuminating essay by producer Kaoru Sato.
