Les Rallizes Dénudés - Mizutani 2 With Association Love Songs

Ages ago, I was going to post a load of LRD until J pointed out that it had been largely done elsewhere. Somebody gave me this recently ... and it was news to me! I'm a bit of a Dénudés obsessive so kind of assumed that I would have seen this out there. Haven't bothered checking but figured that if I didn't have it, then maybe one of you might not as well.

This is a 3CD release from 2007 on the mysterious grey label Univive. If the blurb is to be believed, this is: "A compilation containing, with improved sound, some material previously released on UNIVIVE-002 [Laid Down '76] and UNIVIVE-006 [One More Night Tripper] (including the bonus 'Mizutani 2')."

If this outfit are new to you, you might want to read this.

1 - Mizutani 2 Complete

2 - Live In 13 Dec, 1980

3 - Demo Recording 1976

Bless you! Some LRD I was not aware of. May you be blessed with great health and good fortune always.

To anyone new to Mizutani's world,check it out. Julian Cope is right--this band will change your life.

sometimes i ask myself why
LRD didn't get famous as led zeppelin.
it's strange world

You are my hero for posting this. By chance, would you have a LRD boot called "France Demo" or "French Demo?" Seems to be one of the more elusive bits of LRD arcanum out there and I would love to hear it.

I have 2 things called "France Demo Tape" ... both different ... as with all LRD, christ knows where it comes from!

You can have them if you want...

Kris 25 May 2012 at 18:25  

Yes! I would love to hear those boots. Would you mind uploading them, please? I would definitely appreciate the effort!

Also, might anyone have a high quality rip of High Rise's "Psychedelic Speed Freaks" LP as well as the "PSF 84-85" album?

No worries...will do it this weekend.

Have both of those High Rise in 320...whether the rip is any good is somebody else's judgement!

Thanks so much, Badgerstump! 320 rips of the High Rise would be amazing as well, if you wouldn't mind sharing it. Love your blog!!!!
