Quick Overview

Holy Grail japanese double album vinyl artifact with Blues Creation, Dew, Takajagi Moteru Trio, Takayanagi Masayuki, New
Direction Unit, Lost Aaraaff, Zunokeisatsu Legendary and historical recording that took place during three days in August 1971 as reaction against the scheduled enlargement of Tokyo's Narita International Airport and subsequent expatriation of the farmers inhabiting the land. The festival brought together an amalgam of people, such as farmers, street beatnik hippies, student radicals and underground outsider musicians. This recording depicts the heated up atmosphere of the festival with its ideological arguments, angry insults and doomsday desperation hovering over the event. However, some staggering recordings by legendary artists were recorded for posteriori and are all included here, making hard-core music addicts and scholars of Japanese underground history quiet delighted. Released privately in 1971 in a tiny minuscule run, the disc collects a great selection of material and without a doubt the most insane piece of music on it is the side-long contribution by Takayanagi Masayuki and his New Direction Unit, flooding the gates of hell with his sonic assault that shook up farmers and student radicals alike, both parties failing to get a grasp on this sonic whirlwind of unrelenting power and soul scorching dementia. Other wild contributions are delivered by the Takagi Mototeru Trio, another prime example of Japan's kerosene fuelled fire-music that whipped out the tails of any Mig fighter or B-52 that happened to cross the stratospheres high above the festival grounds. But that is not all, another staggering recording to appear on this record is the right in your face sonic assault performance by the first ever recorded ear imploding performance by Haino Keiji's Lost Aaraaff unit, radical politically charged folk duo Zunokeisatsu, the heavy blues hitters DEW and Blues Creation, delivering wailing and electrically heated up performances, balancing on the verge of sheer riot, chaos and collective frustration. But that is not all, also the interactions, comments, verbal fights of student radicals, farmers and locals add as a great document to fully illustrate the heated up atmosphere of the festival. Listening to this, one comes to fully understand that Woodstock was for pussies. Tiliqua Records great description!
