Shoji Hano (drums); Atsushi Tsuyama (electric bass, vocals); Kawabata Makoto (electric guitar, etc.). "The Dare Devil Band moniker first showed up in the early nineties on a duo album by German sax titan Peter Brotzmann and master drummer Shoji Hano. Hano obviously has a soft spot for the name, as he has resurrected it for this new project -- a hardcore improvised rock trio, consisting of Hano with Makoto Kawabata and Atsushi Tsuyama from acid-freak commune Acid Mothers Temple. Hano made his name as an intensely physical free drummer who draws upon a multitude of esoteric physical practices to energize his playing. He's recorded with Peter Brotzmann, Derek Bailey, Werner Ludi, William Parker, Keiji Haino and a host of other leading free improvisers as well as proving his rock credentials on two albums with the legendary High Rise. Inomusha was recorded live earlier this year in Osaka and Kyoto, with the trio locking down into some seriously wired and sprawling rock craziness. Comes in a gorgeous mini-LP style gatefold jacket with English liner notes by Hano."
