WRWTFWW Records present the release of Jun Fukamachi's highly coveted Nicole (86 Spring And Summer Collection - Instrumental Images) album, originally recorded in 1986 for celebrated fashion designer Mitsuhiro Matsuda's Nicole clothing brand. Never officially available before, Nicole was only distributed as a limited promotional item offered to attendees and participants of the 1986 fashion show for the Nicole brand's Spring and Summer collection. Fukamachi's moody magnum opus has become a sort of holy grail for fans of Japanese ambient, jazz, and synth music alike --and rightly so. Meticulously conceived, smooth and subtle, Nicole sounds like it came from an ethereal land where Erik Satie and Art of Noise lived together, a sublimely cinematic listening experience perhaps best described by renowned Japanese music writer Masaharu Yoshioka, aka The Soul Searcher: "If you are driving down the Autobahn at 160 km/h, or even 80 km/h, and Jun's music starts playing on the car stereo, the windshield will instantly turn into your own personal silver screen." Made in cooperation of the artist's estate; Includes new liner notes by Masaharu Yoshioka. CD version comes in a digipak; Includes one bonus track, "Passion".
