Les Rallizes Denudes- Live and Soundboard 1981-1988

"Although the ultra-mysterious and rumour-cloaked Les Rallizes Denudes/Hadaka no Rallizes existed in various forms from November 1967 to their last gig in October 1996 they are practically unknown in - let alone out of - Japan. Their recorded output is incredibly rare and highly priced and interviews or articles in the music press virtually non-existent. Tie that in with links to radical left-wing politics, extreme sensory assault at live shows and a general revolutionary aura and you have what must be the ultimate cult group." (Noise.as)

Whoa, now! This 10-disc Rallizes bootleg set is a serious behemoth. Eternal props to yellow5 for this fine-quality VBR rip. I'm sort-of wondering if Mojioviolet is the original source. This collection could likely prove to be an overdose for many. If you haven't heard them before, I'd recommend that you start with Heavier Than A Death In The Family- which is pretty much agreed upon as their best recorded work. Here's a pretty decent run-down of that whole album over at Fake Jazz.


Anyhow, I've broken up this joker into two parts. Enjoy.

ooohhhhh nooooooo. this is so crucial but my harddrive is shuddering at the thought. Whatever I'm going for it, if only for the field of artificial flower recordings. Thanks so much for this, and check out a bootleg of theirs I posted here.
