The first official reissue of Japanese band Les Rallizes Dénudés’ Mizutani / Les Rallizes Denudes, via Temporal Drift.

MIZUTANI / Les Rallizes Dénudés includes a set of intimate, contemplative acoustic-based tracks from a transitional period at the turn of the decade. Recorded in 1970 at Doshisha University’s student broadcast studio, this session featured the band mostly as a duo, with Mizutani accompanied by Makoto Kubota, who also handled recording duties. Few of the tracks featured Tadanaka Makino on percussion. CD edition includes “黒い悲しみのロマンセ / Romance of the Black Pain otherwise Fallin’ Love With,” a live recording by the 1973 lineup of Les Rallizes Dénudés.

Produced in collaboration with The Last One Musique, the new label set up by former members and associates of Les Rallizes Dénudés, MIZUTANI / Les Rallizes Dénudés features newly remastered audio by former Rallizes member Makoto Kubota and new liner notes by Shinya Matsuyama.
