Psyche De Loid
[engl] Munehiro Narita, the original ?psychedelic speed freak?, is for many people the undisputed king of acid- fuzz guitar. In active since the late 70s, Narita is a Japanese psychedelic underground legend. After playing in cult bands like Kyoaku no Intention, he founded the brutal heavy- psych power trio High Rise in the 80s. His furious guitar playing, which involves lethal doses of fuzz- wah at ear- splitting volume, can also be heard on his current band Green Flames (featuring Mitsuru Tabata from Acid Mothers Temple). In 2014 Narita released a Japanese only CD titled ?Psyche De Loid?, doing heavy guitar fuzzed- out covers of classic psych songs from the 60s/70s. But ?Psyche De Loid? was also the first ever psychedelic album recorded using the Vocaloid technology. Very popular in Japan, Vocaloid is a software / singing synthesizer: you enter the lyrics of a song into the program, add music, and then you can have one of the Vocaloids ? or ?Vocal Androids?, mostly female - sing for you in a bizarre ?android? type vocals. ?Vocaloid? is often associated with J- Pop but on ?Psyche De Loid? Narita smash this ?genre? into a wall with the contrast of killer, Ron Asheton- alike piercing fuzz- wah guitar and child- like ?android? vocals, featuring surreal covers of tracks by Stooges, Hendrix, Blue Cheer, Shocking Blue, Pink Floyd, MC5, Jefferson Airplane?. Previously available as a Japanese only CD, here?s the first ever vinyl edition with new artwork.
