Harpy - Speech On The Radio

The heart of Harpy is Kenichi Ito (who was in Aburadako) and Kyoko (who was in Kokushoku Elegy and OOIOO). This is a warped blend of Zappa anti-jazz and funk-punk orchestrated by lunatics on children's toys. And then there is the wonderful vocals of Kyoko coming across as a more weird Kate Bush with echoes of Elizabeth Fraser and Laetitia Sadier.

CD on Stupeur & Trompette! in 1999.
