Various - Ftarri Collection

This is a mind-blowing seven disc box-set released on Meenna in individually made felt bags at the end of last year. It consists of a selection of live recordings at various Ftarri festivals in Kyoto and Tokyo in 2008 and 2010. There were 300 released with 80 of them going to the artists involved.

To be honest, I may as well pack up and leave. I can't imagine posting anything else that is as good as this!

thank you so much...i followed the IMJ stuff avidly for a few years but the austerity of it began to get to me (discovered Gnod and the Cosmic Dead among others and cleansed my senses) so i'm intrigued by the Ftarri stuff which is apparently an even more austere follow on from IMJ! Can't wait. I'll call back if my senses allow.

I've got your previous request as well ... tbh, I should have thought of both for the last re-up ... email me a list and they will reappear eventually.
