they seem to be a band which have been more talked about than heard; or even more referred to than listened to. has anyone here ever heard "live 1977"?? i've been consistently unable to get it from any filesharing program (has anyone had any more luck?), but the few mp3s of theirs that i've obtained have intrigued me...

I've got MP3s of it Toby - remind me at an FAP and I'll do you a copy. It's fuzzy but good.

Tom, Thursday, 20 June 2002 00:00 (twenty-one years ago) link

Got 'live 77' as MP3 files. Two hours of 'amarchy in Japan' if you ask me and the sort of thing your typizal sonic youth fan would hate (a good thing). Tom, if you have the MP3 of 'Flames of Ice' make sure you provide the man a copy.

Julio Desouza, Thursday, 20 June 2002 00:00 (twenty-one years ago) link

Why do you think the 'typical Sonic Youth fan' would hate it? "Flames Of Ice" is blistering, yes.

Tom, Thursday, 20 June 2002 00:00 (twenty-one years ago) link

Tom- That opinion is based on reaction to their goodbye 20th century tour. I was thinking if they had taken Takayanagi's 'New directions' group or say, Rallizes, on tour with them, I think a lot of them might have fucked off to the bar.

In fact, I recall reading abt the time SY took Descension as the support act and they were apparently heckled. Descension do make that sort of blistering sound.

Julio Desouza, Thursday, 20 June 2002 00:00 (twenty-one years ago) link

there's another thread somewhere where i posted a cool picture of them.

jess, Thursday, 20 June 2002 00:00 (twenty-one years ago) link

Jess- I remeber now that there's already a thread abt them. There's also a website. Just google it. It's in japanese but there is a dicog and some good pics as well (well some are not so good, leather just doesn't fit with some ppl).

Julio Desouza, Thursday, 20 June 2002 00:00 (twenty-one years ago) link

which would be here.

jess, Thursday, 20 June 2002 00:00 (twenty-one years ago) link

i still haven't been able to track down any of the cd's...yet. i know they're out there but all i've heard so far has been a clutch of mp3's. i'm glad this thread has reminded me to keep looking as i've been listening to a lot of japanese psyche lately (albeit on the quieter end: nagisa ni te, etc.)

jess, Thursday, 20 June 2002 00:00 (twenty-one years ago) link

Jess- good luck finding them. Last time they released anything was in 1991. They reissued (as far as I recall) a couple of albums and a video. The were quickly snapped up by record collector scum and now I'm sure they sell at coronary inducing prices!

It's a pity I don't have a CD burner. These MP3 files are stuck in the prison that is my computer hard drive! The only thing that makes me think (if I play this loud enough it might actually damage my speakers).

Julio Desouza, Thursday, 20 June 2002 00:00 (twenty-one years ago) link

Yes, that picture became my wallpaper when I saw it. THANK U JESS MAN!!! Audiogalaxy had a lot of MP3s and I was able to fill 2 CD-Rs with them. I also met a nice music store clerk who gave me two-hour videotape that I have yet to watch because I'm waiting for The Perfect Moment (or maybe just the perfect drug).

alex in montreal, Thursday, 20 June 2002 00:00 (twenty-one years ago) link

there was a pretty informative primer on jap psyche in the wire two years ago or so, so if i can find it while i'm packing i'll see if it has any info. it was where i first heard of them, if memory serves. now, has anyone heard the EARLIER bands in "the scene" like...shit, my memory just went blank...the cups? the jacks? dr. teeth and the electric mayhem?

jess, Thursday, 20 June 2002 00:00 (twenty-one years ago) link

jess- you want the wire with scanner on the cover. I discovered fushitsusha and rallizes from this. Have heard taj mahal travellers as well. 'August 1974' is excellent document. Violin's scrap and plenty of electronics. quite a lot ot absorb but i haven't heard any of the earlier stuff like jacks.

Theres a new taj mahal travellers reissue as reviewed on the latest wire as well. prob. pick it up.

Just to inform that a bootleg of Live 77 has appeared. it arrived on the post yeastreday and its a 2 LP (vinyl) set. It's all enclosed in a blackcover with a photo of mizutani with his guitar, which was prob photocopied from the Rallizes site pic gallery (i'll check later). This is glued onto the black cover (no artwork really). Inside, two pieces of black vinyl. No track titles or anything.

The sequencing is wrong. Here's the track listing, from rallizes web page:

1. Enter the Mirror 11'30"

2. ???????12'04"

3. ???16'12"

4. ?????11'35"

1. ?????15'32"

2. ???????8'30"

3. The Last One 25'24"

Disk 1: 2nd track is called 'Night of the Assassins' 3. Flames of Ice 4. A memory is far Disk 2: don't have the translation to 1 and 2.

The first 3 tracks on disc 1 is OK (1 and 2 on 'side 1' of the vinyl. Flames of ice on 'side 2' but A memory is far is not the last track on the vinyl. That is the 8:30 secs one on disc 2).

Its a straight swap (since it probably wouldn't fit due to the time considerations). Can you fit 27+ mins onto one side of vinyl?

Also the last (i think) 10 secs of memory is far is missing (just noting this, if you 15.32+11.35 that is slightly more than 27 mins). But i think my MP3 of the 'last one' is 21 mins long whereas I think they have all 25 mins onto vinyl (the bassline is the same 'melody' but it's a slightly different tuning I think, but I'll have to check).

I'm wondering also why didn't they bootleg it onto 2xCDs. maybe vinyl was cheaper...

It's a very good record. and when it's that good things like artwork don't matter. My small speakers connected to my computer cannot do justice to the sound of this band as I play the Mp3s. but my stereo speakers can as I play the vinyl (though it would surely pale in comparison to seeing this stuff live). So I'm glad I got it. Amazing what some of these bands were working at on the other side of the planet (recorded 'le 12 mars 1977 a Tachikawa' as it says on the webpage). It is a psychedelic rock record but the way they go on their 'noise assault' is pretty remarkable. so if you have a shitty computer get hold of it (I had most of these as MP3s but I had to get it).

what recommendations do you all have for good sites to download mp3s of their LIVE stuff?

roger adultery (roger adultery), Thursday, 6 March 2003 07:46 (twenty years ago) link

after _live '77_, i recommend:
_french demo tape_ (this is really my favorite, i think)
_sunset glow festival 1975_
_live et studio 67-69_
the mizutani solo/rallizes split

there are a couple of things labelled variously "mass studio demo" or "mars studio demo" that are somewhat different - one features two versions of "romance of black grief" (i think) that are surprisingly subtle and have some nice tape-delay messing about. the other (september 9th, 1980) is atypical rallizes stuff with some noisy guitar.

the "red" cdr is pretty good, too, but as with all rallizes stuff they generally just did the same batch of songs again and again.

I have a CD boot of Live '77 on the way to me from Midheaven Mailorder in SF, CA. Check to see if they have more in stock quickly! The periodic piracies of this elusive jewel always move fast! Scratch Records had another CD in stock which I did not get, as I'm waiting to "live with" the Live '77 thing for a bit before I take the full plunge.

John Bullabaugh (John Bullabaugh), Saturday, 8 March 2003 17:31 (twenty years ago) link

Oh yeah - I think the thing Scratch had was Heavier Than A Death In the Family, and I do not think it is the same as Live '77 - but I'm not positive.

John Bullabaugh (John Bullabaugh), Saturday, 8 March 2003 17:34 (twenty years ago) link

Update! Midheaven was, in fact, out of stock. However, Yod records lists both Volumes of a thing called "Fucked Up & Naked". Two different 2LP sets. I have e-mailed them regarding actual availability. Seems every time I try to order something by Rallizes, it ends up being out-of-stock. Julian Cope's Head Heritage site shows an item called "Blind Baby Has His Mother's Eyes". At last check, Scratch Records was showing "Heavier Than A Death In the Family" in their catalogue... Oh, and Soulseek has several MP3s...

John Bullabaugh (John Bullabaugh), Tuesday, 11 March 2003 22:52 (twenty years ago) link

The Live 77 Double CD sounds quite good. I got one at Aquarius. It's the same as the first boot LP but in the same order as the SIXE release.
As far as the second boot LP goes, does anyone have a track listing? I'm paricularly curious about the side long Motorhead / motorcycle-like track on there. The rest of it is 80s Rallizes which I'm not as down with like they're using transistor amps.
Oh yeah, way up above I saw a reference to Takayanagi Masayuki. Does anyone have any of his stuff from 1975? I'm looking to hear:

Eclipse [Iskra 001]
Axis Another Revolvable Thing 1 [Offbeat ORLP-1005]
Axis Another Revolvable Thing 2 [Offbeat ORLP-1009]

The translations for the 1st 2 songs on the second disc of the Live '77 bootleg CD I have, which is Le 12 Mars 1977 a Tachikawa, are:

1. Strong Out Deeper Than the Night (no, it is not supposed to be "strung")
2. Reapers of the Night

Rallizes merch update: The 2-LP item billed as Fucked Up & Naked Vol. 1 is in fact yet another reissue of Live '77. The good news is that it sounds great! A bit better than the most recent 2-CD version I think...

Went to a Japanese Rallizes discography page & was alarmed & depressed to see how much bootleg stuff is out there. There are several 10-disc bootleg sets listed, in addition to the boot/pirate versions of '77 and '73 that are floating around..........

John Bullabaugh (John Bullabaugh), Wednesday, 23 April 2003 15:57 (twenty years ago) link

you're not the only one who was 'depressed' abt the amount of bootlegs listed on that site (I wonder abt the guy who runs it).

They are the japanese grateful dead but like better than that. hopefully some shit will appear some day.

Julio Desouza (jdesouza), Wednesday, 23 April 2003 16:13 (twenty years ago) link

Hey! Yes, I'm hoping to see some of that stuff emerge in more readily available form. Speaking of which, its about time somebody reissued Live '73 again, isn't it?

John Bullabaugh (John Bullabaugh), Thursday, 24 April 2003 17:31 (twenty years ago) link

yes it has benn 'reissued' (its all boots really). I haven't found a copy. good luck.

Julio Desouza (jdesouza), Thursday, 24 April 2003 17:57 (twenty years ago) link

is anyone familiar with the Rallizes' Cragale CD-R? (FND-S1). 6 tracks, from '73, '76, '80 and '81. track listing?

Julio Desouza (jdesouza), Thursday, 24 April 2003 19:07 (twenty years ago) link

cragale was a japanese label - i think originally in the 80s they did some super-rare vinyl stuff and more recently they reissued some stuff on cdr. dunno if they ever did any rallizes stuff (only connection i can find between the two is an ebay auction).

your null fame (yournullfame), Thursday, 24 April 2003 19:25 (twenty years ago) link

Julio, Apparently all of the Live '73 boots are old and not readily available now. I was publicly wishing for a new one to pop out that I could order from Eclipse or Aquarius or somebody... I have seen tons of Rallizes stuff on Soulseek. Might have to go to that.

John Bullabaugh (John Bullabaugh), Friday, 25 April 2003 12:02 (twenty years ago) link

your null fame (yournullfame), Tuesday, 6 May 2003 01:53 (twenty years ago) link

Crazy political stories abound around the Rallizes camp. Guitarist was allegedly involved in a plot to hijack an airliner (he didn't go through with it, but others did) -- the French thing is definitely worth seeking too after the double live discs.

Anyone interested in Japanese psych/scuzz should seek the Gaseneta disc on PSF. 1978-era total punk garbage guitar that influenced High Rise later (who apparently shared some music on a cassette release with Gaseneta). Imagine speed-psych acid mothers minus the reverb, with a lot grottier production and a guy plowing through solos ultra-fast with gloves on...hits the spot for me!

StanM, Friday, 25 November 2022 22:22 (one year ago) link

They're out - and 77 Live is brickwall central indeed. But so was the bootleg, to be fair.

The other two aren't as bad (first track on 67-69 studio & live is over the top too but the rest is better)

Les Rallizes Dénudés just announced CITTA' '93, check it out here: https://lesrallizesdenudes.bandcamp.com/album/citta-93

“We are honored and thrilled to share with you the first-ever release of CITTA’ ‘93 by Les Rallizes Dénudés, the first entirely new album to be released as part of the archival and reissue campaign launched in 2021 in collaboration with The Last One Musique. Containing in its entirety a recording of the band’s legendary 1993 performance at Club Citta in Kawasaki, Japan, CITTA’ ‘93 is a tour de force for this seldom-heard era of the Rallizes, destined to be a future classic alongside their definitive showcase ’77 LIVE.

Pre-orders are now live on our Bandcamp, where a limited edition 3LP Silver Vinyl edition is available, along with 3LP Black Vinyl and 2CD sets. Every vinyl order will be bundled with a newsprint poster featuring an iconic photo of Takashi Mizutani by Takehiko Nakafuji, while supplies last.”

The recording quality is pretty amazing, but...I really like the ultra-blown-out, Mainliner/High Rise-ish sound of '77 Live, and other Rallizes stuff, both earlier and later, that's more conventionally "psychedelic" doesn't really do it for me in the way their skull-squashing sonic attack material does.

Yeah I can totally get that, this is definitely "cleaner" sounding as compared to '77 Live and older boots. But I kind of like hearing it all a little more clearly and I think this epic "The Last One" still bulldozes my brain and ears.

Just got the notification from Temporal Drift that my Citta '93 vinyl has shipped.

Citta '93 is pure destruction in sound.

I hope they can improve the sound on the Baus bootleg because it's a pretty stellar show as well

i'm really curious to check out the "mizutani" record; delicate acoustic psych from LRD sounds intriguing

Thanks for the heads up, pre-ordered the vinyl. Would have been annoyed if it had been sold out as I never got an email from them announcing this despite being on their mailing list.

leaked. the sound is miles better than the bootleg, this is Citta level of audio quality, I'd say.
