Masayuki Takayanagi & New Direction

Tokyo 1970. Freejazz/Noise/Feedback improvisations. Reminds me of an early version of Fushitsusha/Keiji Haino. Released in 1994 on the excellent PSF label.

Incredible how fresh this album sounds. Maybe I just wasn't aware of the existence of this kind of heavy free rock/jazz experiments during the late sixties, early seventies. Could easily have been an Original Silence-album (Mats Gustaffson, Thurston Moore, ...) recorded last year.
