Ineffable, spacey Japanese art-rock, or turgid mediaeval spare parts salesmen? Widen to include the whole PSF label if you wish...

never heard any but a ghostbloke is playin' tha TOON with damon and naomi on saturday - any good ?

geordie racer, Wednesday, 16 May 2001 00:00 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

I saw 'em last night at the Garage - pretty good, but not really because of Kurihara's guitar playing, more cos of their inherently talented selves. Ghost are on a very tight leash on the Damon and Naomi record, too - they don't really add anything much compared to the transformation that could have taken place - a bit dissapointing.

Pete, Wednesday, 16 May 2001 00:00 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

Ghost suck when they're spacey Japanese art-rock, they're great when they're turgid mediaeval spare parts salesmen. If you're so sick you wanna drink tea, I could see listening to Ghost. All their albums are really good, but I would have to sober up before I could recommend one above the others.

Other PSF highlights: Fushitsusha and Haino, obviously, and the related Lost Aaraaf ... aw, fuck it, my rack of Japanese improv is upstairs. Nearly everything on PSF is good, so long as it's not solo sax.

Otis Wheeler, Wednesday, 16 May 2001 00:00 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

Were/are Ghost even on PSF?

I love them. Classic. Search - first album, Lama Rabi Rabi. Destroy...well, my least favourite is Second Time Around but I think that may well be because I don't "get it".

Oh no actually, Damon & Naomi w/ Ghost is eminently destroyable because it is in essence a bloody D & N album and I was suckered into listening to it.

Tom, Wednesday, 16 May 2001 00:00 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

DN with Ghost is searchable because DN are always great. Ghost mixes up things mildly, but well nonetheless. The long tracks have an epic feel that DN used to steer clear of (although their later albums have been getting more extended).

Sterling Clover, Wednesday, 16 May 2001 00:00 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

Seriously, Sterling - what do you get out of Damon & Naomi? Because it was the, absolutely, most boring music I've listened to in a very long time - more so even than Tortoise or somebody. Just completely inert, for me. Not actively bad, just...utterly blank of any kind of interest or engagement. So what's the secret? :)

Tom, Wednesday, 16 May 2001 00:00 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

I saw D&N at the Knitting Factory with Ghost supporting and then guesting as backup musicians. It was deadly. That's deadly in a bad way.

Nick, Wednesday, 16 May 2001 00:00 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

Tom, first three Ghost albs were originally on PSF then reissued on Drag City. Surprised you didn't mention that terrific Masaki Batoh 'collected works' comp you used to have, prob. my fave Ghost-related prod. As for other PSF stuff, recently I've been digging some of the brain-scraping Masayuki Takayanagi reissues - free improv electric/acoustic guitar, influenced by Bailey and a big influence on Haino. And I'll put in a good word for some of the Kaoru Abe solo sax stuff, even if Otis won't.

Andrew L, Wednesday, 16 May 2001 00:00 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

Naomi's voice is magnificent -- with the right production sheen, as on Playback singers, the interplay of voice and guitar, both shining, feels like an extended alcohol buzz, not the hit right after the shot, but when it really starts to move through your veins. Not music to listen to with any sort of critical approch, more music to lounge around and avoid work to. All in the texture and sweep of melodic progression. It doesn't surprise me that this is very un-tom music.

Sterling Clover, Wednesday, 16 May 2001 00:00 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

I'm as shocked as you are that I forgot the Batoh comp, Andrew. Especially given that I was listening to it a couple of weeks ago. Yeah, definitely very very searchable indeed, especially if you've ever had any curiosity about what Batoh might do with a broader range of instruments.

Tom, Wednesday, 16 May 2001 00:00 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

can someone do the same description thing Sterling just did for Ghost?

I love Ghost too, btw. I don't think D&N are boring, but I think their last record is a bit pointless and well, no more than nice- ish.

To go abruptly off topic - Tortoise = blankness? Just wanted to say the first track on TNT is as exhilirating as anything I've ever heard. Of course I've lived most of my life in a disused abbatoir in a Venezuelan border town.

Pete, Wednesday, 16 May 2001 00:00 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

The only Ghost I've heard is on the Damon & Naomi album, but as Tom (I think) suggested, that album is 95% D&N, so I doubt it's a fair representation of Ghost. Still, they intrigue me. Is it true that the band live in adandonned temples and train stations? Or is that just a bit of enigmatic self-mythologizing?

alex in nyc, Wednesday, 16 May 2001 00:00 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

I love Ghost, and I even like DN w/Ghost in small doses. However, I saw DN w/Ghost at Terrastock a few years back and Damon pissed me off to no end by going off into this diatribe about how their music was more pure and real than the music that djs make. Ahem.

Is it just one of those things where men named Damon are annoying by default?

Nicole, Wednesday, 16 May 2001 00:00 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

I dunno - Damon out of Brookside was quite nice. Whatever happened to his TV presenting career?

I think names with annoying associations must work in a vicious circle. I mean only a complete arsehole would call their baby 'Damon' if they lived in Britain today. So all the new Damons will be brought up by arseholes and will become arseholes themselves most probably. And then er... the circle stops becuase they aren't going to call their own arsehole progeny Damon as well unless they are serious cockfarmers. Sorry.

Nick, Wednesday, 16 May 2001 00:00 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

Oddly enough, I was at that same Terrastock show and I don't remember that rant at all! I must have happily blotted it from my mind (or else I was just watching Tom Rapp warm up in the side room). Suffice to say that while Dean Wareham has been justly slammed for his increasing rock star behavior towards the end of Galaxie 500, I don't think any of the three are the type I'd necessarily want to hang around with!

When I saw D/N and Ghost last year at another Terrastock, Ghost definitely added some loveliness to the proceedings. Then Ghost on its own blew down the venue walls with a 13-minute 'fuck you' because everyone had to leave by a certain time. Ergo, Ghost wins. ;-)

On record, meanwhile -- again, Ghost over D/N. Who are pleasant enough, have their moments I guess, etc. But that's about it. Midrange craft with whispery breathing mistaken as depths. Hm.

Ned Raggett, Wednesday, 16 May 2001 00:00 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

I too was suckered into buying the DN+G album because Ghost was on it - I wanted a Ghost album and could never find any around. And anyway Chris Barrus said it was really good. The production is pristine, fanstastic. The music makes me want to beat people up, particularly Damon.

crikey! pete asking a question abt ghost! Tom listening to the 'batoh comp'! those were 'the days'.

I got 'temple stone' through a CDR deal. If you dig psych folk from the likes of the incredible string band and like yr krautrock this could be up yr street but there is something unsatisfying abt it. its alright but I actually prefer che-shizu and taj mahal travellers is far better than either, i guess.

I like Ghost. Midieval Japanese hippies tripping on 'shrooms is just my sort of thing though.

PSF in general is great, though I haven't particularly cared for the much-lauded Kan Mikami from the little I have heard. Perhaps in a diffrent mood I would. Search Exias-J.

I saw their 1st album in the sale in HMV in Oxford Street about a month ago - reduced from Β£18.99 to Β£1.99. However, given that I am forever picking up highly rated Japanese bands in sales and forever finding them to be utter shite, I didn't buy it. On returning to the shop at the weekend I was surprised to see it still there, so, against my better judgement, I bought - and I like it! The word I would use to describe is nice.

Ghost were one of the top bands at Terrastock in Boston. But even they couldn't save Damon and Naomi from that painful set.

What do we think of Snuffbox Immanence? I saw it pretty cheap at the record store the other day, and I quite like Hypnotic Underworld, but Tune In, Turn On, Free Tibet a bit less, probably because of the 34 minute closer, which has nice bits that could have been built into awesome tunes but instead just kind of meander aimlessly.

Ian Johnson (orion), Tuesday, 25 May 2004 23:26 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

A super nice album.

Tim Ellison, Tuesday, 25 May 2004 23:29 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

I know what Ned thinks, but what about the rest of you?

S: Lhasa Lhasa from Tune In, Turn On..., Piper and Holy High from Hypnotic Underworld

Ian Johnson (orion), Tuesday, 25 May 2004 23:31 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

"Regenesis" on Snuffbox has to be one of the most beautiful songs of the last five years, no?

Tim Ellison, Tuesday, 25 May 2004 23:31 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

If I'm remembering it right, Snuffbox is lovely. It's got quite a light and airy feel to it, kind of like some delicately stoned medieval chamber prog, but the tunes are maybe a little more tightly focussed than similar stuff off previous albums. Lots of the songs are based round acoustic guitars, flutes and indeed glockenspiels, though Kurihara does pop up quite a bit to add his considerable electric clout.

It's also got a great cover of the Stones' "Live With Me" on it, which for me is highly noteworthy for being one of the few songs my wife will actively insist that I play her.

i think i stood outside a show of theirs in philadelphia once, waiting for someone. and then, in boston, some people went to the show, and i didnt. i didnt really know about them. i still dont, but, if i buy lama rabi rabi, or another one, this weekend, then hopefully i will.

so, which one should i buy?

charltonlido (gareth), Friday, 28 May 2004 12:42 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

"We are Ghost from the Far East."

ditto. they were awesome. they exited the khyber (philly) through the door behind the stage. it was the first time i saw a band do that so they could re-enter for an encore. it's a shame more people didn't come out for the show.

They are always great in Philly! Well, okay, I've only seen them twice in philly, but they were great then. The show upstairs at the troc back around the time of snuffbox is still on my top ten live shows ever list!

scott seward (scott seward), Monday, 27 September 2004 15:36 (twelve years ago) Permalink

Haven't heard their previous, but HYPNOTIC UNDERWORLD is very good. Still have to fast fwd past first track, but the rest just grows on me me more and more. Any compentent muso can be eclectic, but all these different bits are so well-timed! Like the best style-sequences of Comets On Fire's BLUE CATHEDRAL Umphrey McGee's ANCHOR DROPS, but not, in effect, but not literally: Ghost's influences are different. "Hazy Paradise"(a Dutch song, from early 70s, I think) is kind of Jimmy Webb/Bryan Maclean, but not as icky as they could be; piano sections remind of Pharoah Sanders's LIVE AT THE EAST, other pasts like if Donovan had continued developing his work with Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page; Japanese refs. like Benzaiten and Stomu Yomashita's Red Buddah Theater. But none of this is lifted (I doubt that that the orig."Hazy Paradise" has a Japanese accent, which tends to resist the more emotive faux-Scott-Walker phrasing which I suspect this song might bring out in Westerners).

Also, their own hazy paradise (lowercase habitat as well as that song) is also steamy, dirty, like a real forest (incl, in the back corner of the pasture, down toward the bottom of the ravine, speaking of shrooms.) Was very glad to first hear this as antidote to cable debut of LORD OF THE RINGS: digitalized, sanitary fronds, incl. Ian McKellan's "hair" eeewwww

Don, Monday, 27 September 2004 21:30 (twelve years ago) Permalink

Anyone heard the Holy High 7"? I *think* it came out quite a long time before _Hypnotic Underworld_ so I was wondering whether it might be totally different.

Also: jealous beyond words of all you lot for seeing them. Dont think theyve ever played in Britain.

Ghost: love 'em, enjoy a good number of the albums. Saw them live a year or two ago in front of maybe 100 people and they killed it. Great psychedelic set that meandered and then refocused. My girlfriend loved them too.

Boris: awesome band, great live show. The albums can be hit-or-miss, but they have at least 9-10 albums that HIT and hit hard.

Melvins: legendary, and incredible. Can't beat their live show either. I've seen them blow numerous headliners off the stage as they knocked out the opening slot.

Fushitsusha: still exploring their catalog (CDs are hard to find/expensive!) but I've liked what I've heard, though not quite as much as...

Keiji Haino: ...whose solo efforts are generally quite awesome, and preferable to Fushitsusha.

Elton John: zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz...

Sadly the Batoh gig last night fell a bit flat. Very low attendance (about 15 people including the support acts) and quite a short set (felt like it was only about 20 mins long!) and Batoh seemed to be having a few technical issues with the circuits that his brain pulse machine was plugged into. That said, I was quite surprised by the music the device generated. Hadn't heard the record and was expecting soothing drones or something (I read somewhere that it was being looked at for use in medical treatment), but what we actually got was like a flip-flop sequence of quiet momemnts punctuated by loud shrieks and blocks of quite agressive tones that sounded a lot like early electronic music. Not a big surprise I guess considering that the brain pulse machine was being fed into a couple of oscillators and some sort of feedback loop. Good while it lasted, but I left feeling a litle glum :(

Awesome. I remember being close enough to the front and center (maybe second or third row?) to be slightly worried about Batoh's marvelous "springer" device -- I think he let the spring go at some point? Anyway, amazing stuff and I can't wait for the album to arrive!
