Toshiharu Ohsato - Improvisation Dedicated To Aquirax Aida

Ohsato was the bass player for Gaseneta, a legendarily volatile band of simultaneously proto- and post-punk nihilists whose raging excess lasted for just 3 years in the late 1970s before their inevitable implosion. Gaseneta foreshadowed no wave, Musica Transonic, Harry Pussy and more in a brilliant flash that was destined to self-destruct quickly. Once it did, Ohsato was disillusioned about music, something he had mixed feelings about since the start. He played in Taco for a bit, taught college art and film classes in Yokohama, wrote an astounding and brutal memoir "Gaseneta Wasteland" about his tumultuous years playing in Gaseneta (recently translated into English and published by Public Bath Press) then died in 2009. This album is one of very few documents of his sporadic post-Gaseneta music. It was released as a CD in 2018 by Company Sha.

Thanks for the re-post; the old link is still behind a pay-wall (and I'm a freeloader, I guess).

all we have ever done on here is try to get music that we think is important into the world with the minimum of effort for the people that wander past ...

it's been a major ball ache for the full twelve years and counting, and we are still trying to figure out how to do this

i bought a sub from the current one (not the first time only to watch my money piss down the drain into somebody else's waterproof pockets)

no donate buttons ... just lurve
