A6: Overground
B1: Helter Skelter
B2: Hong Kong Garden
B3: Make Up Break Up
B4: Love And Romance
B5: Carcass (II)
B6: Love In A Void (II)

2ndと3rd以降は別のバンドの様で次第に興味を失ったが、バランスの良いバンドであった。此れは初期BBC録音のブートレグ。昨年正規リリースのBOX "At The BBC" に入っているかは未確認。なお、ブートらしくB4は彼らでは無く "The Slits" の同タイトルが誤って混入している。

B5: Cabaret Voltaire - Burnt To The Ground
B6: Wire - Second Length (Our Swimmer)

A2は "Walk Out To Winter (RTT132)" B面収録で爆発する若さとギターに勃起。A6はCostello作の曲は勿論だが、改めてRobert Wyattの唯一無二の声に失禁。B6: Wireは2003作の"Read & Burn"の方がより重く、早く、ポップだった(笑)。

A: Drumbeat For Baby

Post Punk 史上最も重要なアルバム "Colossal Youth" をリリースした Young Marble Giants。 そのVocal: Alison Statton の未来には、眉間に皺を寄せた我々を横目に微笑むかの様な音楽が待っていた。当時ガキのオレは「何のこっちゃ」だったが、今振り返ると YMG 同様に時代の隙間を埋めてくれる重要なバンドであった。

Notes: Liner Notes by Seigo Matsuoka

A: Mineraloid [Cad's Favorite]
AA1: Moonlight
AA2: Detachable Thang

WAVEレーベルよりリリースされた「最後」となった本作は、それまでとは異なる様相を呈している。とは言え、其れは解釈の違いか。此処でもアジアをキーワードに、各国のエレメントがより明確に散りばめられ、まるで過去と未来がごちゃ混ぜに成った「バザール」のサウンドトラックだ。ジャケットの "Sound Wave" と松岡正剛のライナーが、佐藤薫本人から発せられた言葉であるかの様。
"Sound Wave" がよく解るこちらも参照の事→ youtube
なお、Side A に後半に10秒、最後に2分程の無音がある。最後の方はカットしようか迷ったが、盤に溝があり意図的なものと解釈した。

1974年 "3 / 3" に始まり "Mirrors" やこのバンドのみならず "Friction" "The Starlin" 等、80年代以降のインディーズの屋台骨を担って来た「ヒゴ ヒロシ」率いるチャンスオペレーション。E.S.G. が Hip Hop であれば此れは Dub Funk か。2周程して、今またリンクしたカンジ。12" での再発を強く希望。

大きく成り得たバンド。もっと聴きたかった。ブラックとシルバーで印刷された Vaughan Olivern によるジャケットも美しい。1990年に惜しくも解散。

A: Orange Room
B1: 恋の花咲くカフェテラス
B2: Pygmies In The Tropical Forest

Drawing - Kentaro Ichihara

クラスナヤ ローザ。正しいスペルはロシア語で "Kpachaя Роза"。意味は赤いバラか。赤は例の「アカ」なのかは不明。以前記したように80's札幌に独自の音楽シーンがあった訳だが、当時の横浜も同様であったらしい。このメンバーでもある Rorie が居た「アケボノイズ」「ルナパーク・アンサンブル」や「吉野大作&プロスティテュート」等、詳しくないオレが知ってるほどだ。このバンドについても良く知らないが、音は New Wave なプログレ 。このカンジ、札幌にも居たなあ。

B6: Cabaret Voltaire - Do The Mussolini (Headkick)

森脇美貴夫(懐い…。)のライナーによると、英国のマイナー雑誌「ZIGZAG」が当時(1978年)のインディーレーベルを特集したのを発端に、Cherry Red からリリースされたコンピレーションらしい。オリジナルは此れで、本盤とジャケットのみが異なる。Punk はシングル中心だったので非常に重宝した。しかし2年遅れての発売だったとは、世界はかなり遠かったのだ。

B2: Scritti Politti - Sex
B3: Pig bag - The Pig Bean
B4: Brother Noland - Love Birds
B5: David Gamson - Sugar Sugar

After Punk & New Wave 以降、阿呆の様に流行したダンサブルなコンピレーション。こんな物までリリースされて日本のリスナーは Rough Trade の音源に恵まれてたな、と感慨深いが、此の能天気さに面食らう。当時はLPの存在しか知らなかったが、全く買う気にならず、昨年ヤフオクにてカセットテープ版を500円で購入。サクサクッとトータル約45分で案外良い。

まあ、同じ内容のCDも発売中なんだが、その素晴らしい内容と、当初はカセットテープのみリリースであった "ROIR" の紹介も兼ねて。様々なライヴを Tom Verlaine 自らコンパイルした内容で、各15分にもなる B1、B3 に失禁確実。ライヴではおなじみ、カバーのA1、 A9、B4 も収録。

京都発ライヴカセットより。透明プラスティック・スリーヴ入りの、くり抜いた発泡スチロールにパックされたカセットテープ、という体裁がイカす。札幌の "Banana Moon" にて購入。輸入盤を扱っていた "Disk Up" 以外では、此処が主な自主制作盤の入手先であった。音はというと、良くも悪くも当時らしい内容。此れが "今やるべき事"であった。貴重な処では Dried Cell(ドライ・セル)と デビュー直前のGuernica(ゲルニカ)。前者はEP-4初期、佐藤薫のユニットだったと思う。Throbbing Gristle テイストだが、以外にもZeppelin "Dazed and confused" かとも思う(笑)。後者は改めて二人の、特に戸川純の圧倒的な才能に惚れる。
