Uganda (1972)


"Unbelievable 1972 Japanese underground rarity featuring acid guitar god Kimio Mizutani on planet-bombing wah-wah/distorto form backed by a thunder of African rhythms. Miuztani is best known for killer prog/psych sides like Love Live Life +1 and A Path Through Haze but this features some of the most spirit-flaying six string sorcery he ever laid in stone, over a shrifting back line that feels as cosmos-bound as Billy TK’s all-Maori Powerhouse orchestra or those never-realised Miles/Hendrix third-stone jams. Too fucking much.Highly recommended."


First reissue of an impressive and unknown Japanese private press psych album from 1972. Exact repro, with insert, edition of 400. It's been a while, so let it be said in reminder: Shadoks is a pretty goddamn insane archival operation -- resurrecting some of the most marginalized cultural fringe activity from time long destroyed. "Akira Ishikawa, the drummer/composer of the project Uganda went to Africa to study music from the African Masia tribe...and smoke grass. Back in Japan he recorded this album in quadraphonic sound together with Kimio Mitzutani and some other guys. Kimio Mizutani, who played a true outstanding distorted wah-wah fest, is backed by tribal African rhythm here. Along with 'Ceremony,' this is highly desirable Japanese heavy psych. Still completely unknown this album beats most other Japanese psychedelic rarities. The fuzz guitar just went berserk." (buy it)

It seems that mediafire is blocking certain countries for some time now. I guess
posting there agrees with that policy.

Being from one of those countries, I can't even ask for an explanation, since
even www.mediafire.com is blanked.

Can you?
