"Compilation of new and previously released tracks from Kazuki Tomokawa, Japan's god of emotionally transcendent song. Tomokawa's convulsive and passionate songs have recently graced films by two of Japan's most notorious directors, legendary underground director Koji Wakamatsu (whose career dates back to the early sixties) and Takashi Miike, the current enfant terrible of weird and ultra-violent genre flicks. Tomokawa's appearance playing himself in Miike's time-travelling samurai vengeance movie IZO in particular has stunned festival audiences -- the violent, cathartic and irrational beauty of his songs chimes perfectly with the film's mood. Twelve tracks in total, including 'Pistol' the amazing title-track from IZO, previously only available as part of the PSF 13 CD boxset (PSFD-134 / 146). Also includes three entirely new tracks, and three radical re-recordings." -- Alan Cummings.
