Following the obscure live document Sauce Hollandaise comes a new live in Japan release, recorded in Osaka and Tokyo on the historic Ash Ra Tempel tour in Feb. 1997. The label's hype on this release refers to the group as Ash Ra Tempel as well, but only the word "Ashra" is actually found on the CD. The line up consists of Manuel Göttsching (guitar & keyboards, Lutz Ulbrich (guitar, e-bow, keyboards), Harald Grosskopf (drum kit and percussion) & Steve Baltes (sampling, keyboards and rhythm machine). They create a live variant on the proto-techno sound first initiated by Göttsching on E2-E4, and at its best (such as the 20-minute opening "Echo Waves"), the trance inducing power is still very much intact.
