Tori Kudo - Mu Ji Ge 7"

8.00

A song by Korean psychedelic rock legends SANULLIM covered by TORI KUDO of MAHER SHALAL HASH BAZ, CHIE OZEKI (Maher Shalal Hash Baz), TSUKASA TAKAHASHI (CHE SHIZU, Maher Shalal Hash Baz) and MIKIKO SUZUKI, in solidarity with and support for Japan’s Korean community, currently facing growing hostility from the Japanese right-wing. “Sanullim was like an unexpected flower of the frontier district that suddenly shifted from GS to progressive rock,” remembers Kudo upon hearing a cassette of the group back in 1980. “Wouldn’t it be shocking if Jackie Yoshikawa & His Blue Comets were performing Uriah Heep? I do not know any similar examples that equal them in East Asia other than Les Rallizes Dénudés.” Insert with a poem in Japanese and English by JUNKO HARADA.
