It's February now.. Sorry for not having posted anything since October... hehe I was kinda busy.
This time I write about another pretty obscure musician, J. A. Seazer (sometimes spelled J. A. Caesar.) He IS Japanese, best known for having worked closely with the legendary avant-garde poet, dramatist, writer, film director, and photographer Terayama Shuji (寺山修司) and his famous independent theater troupe Tenjo Sajiki (天井桟敷). This tune is "Jinriki Hikoki no tame no Enzetsu Soan" (人力飛行機の為の演説草案, trans.: Speech Notes for Human-Powered Aircraft) from the 1973 album Kokkyo Junreika (国境巡礼歌, trans.: The Border Pilgrimage Songs). The lyrics are Terayama's poem of the same title.
How was it? We're going much deeper. Next tune is "Kyojobushi" (狂女節, trans.: The Madwoman Song) from Jashumon (邪宗門, trans.: The Gate of the Heretical Sect). This album is the live recording of Tenjo Sajiki theater performance.
Full of pathos...
