Format: Audio CD
Les Ralllizes Denudes (LRD) is a mysterious collective of Japanese musicians. Mysterious and perhaps even dangerous.

Formed in 1967. In 1970 they were hounded by the Japanese government which eventually led to the arrest of a band member who was affiliated with the terrorist group Japanese Red Army and who had taken a part in the hijacking of a large Japanese Commercial Airliner(!)
In and out of the true underground, LRD would surface, do a gig, raise some havoc, then submerge (a Japanese MC5 if you will). Getting ahold of their various recording tapes(all bootleg)was a tricky affair. Until the digital age anyhow.

'Great White Wonder is 5 cds housed in a thick sturdy clamshell box. Each cd is in a glossy cardboard mini-lp sleeve. There is a 2 page liner note insert printed real small so's you'll need a magnifying glass to read (but contains alot of info).

To spark your interest I'll steal a few quotes which describes the music better than I can:

"the music sounds live as a sandstorm at the bottom of an elevator shaft".

"endless two-chord garage riffs as the keys to the psychedelic kingdom"

"reality warping use of delay and those amazing narcoleptic vocals giving way to endless guitar soloing"

"perfect combination of west coast dissolving-in-space guitar histrionics and lip-curling punk blues"

"lead frontman sings in a faux japanese-beatnik-creole manner, whispered and shrieked"

"you never heard such sounds"

This is a collection of live recordings. LRD are best live. Their studio work is too polished for me. You've got to hear them live and this set is a 5cd powerhouse. LRD never play the same tune twice, even when they're playing the same tune.

4.5 stars.
