"Second duo outing (following Extreme-Onction on Fractal) for a sympathetically resonating pair of cross-culturally twinned Franco-Japanese souls. Makoto Kawabata is of course the hair-flailing, chain-smoking motorpsycho guitarist who first appeared on the radar in Musica Transonic and Mainliner, but is of late known to space-rock junkies the world over through the endlessly touring, cosmic freak-power bandwagon that is Acid Mothers Temple. Jean-Francois Pauvros is still a far lesser known name to those outside France, but he has a solid-gold history in European free-rock shenanigans stretching all the way back to the late seventies, when he played alongside Jac Berrocal in Catalogue. Recent years have seen many collaborations with dancers, poets, and Japanese musicians such as Makoto Sato, Setsuko Chiba, and Keiji Haino. Caught together two years ago in Paris, it is clear that Kawabata and Pauvros breathe very much the same air. An air dense with tobacco smoke, red wine fumes, and the alluring perfume of beautiful women. Bowed guitars, communal psychedelic geography, heavily quivering clouds of harmonics, deep drones, and that unmistakable miasma of unwashed rock spirit in telepathically free motion..." -- Alan Cummings.
