Underground cartoonist Keizo Miyanishi left behind one of the greatest documents from the 1980s. Self-released on his own Cupid & Psyche label, the single contains two songs, "Cortigiana dal velo" and "Mune o tutunde," which pair guitars and bass over some of the most tripped-out drum programming of all time. This psychedelic masterpiece ranks alongside the first White Stains 7-inch as one of the all-time greatest from the era. There is an outtake from these sessions, "Haha nareba koso," which is just as amazing, and the three songs would fit in a Terminal Boredom discussion about acid punk classics from Crawling Chaos to Chrome.
In 2007, Onna reappeared and released a double-CDR with his partner, dancer Barae. A track appeared on PSF's Tokyo Flashback 6, and the label also released an album titled Katawa in 2008. In addition to the studio material from the 7-inch, this CD includes two outtakes from Katawa, a solo piece from an obscure cassette release, and four live tracks from 1983 featuring a young Michio Kurihara [White Heaven, Ghost, Boris] on second guitar. These are the first Kurihara recordings and come from a long-deleted double live Onna CD released in the early 1990s.
This CD is packaged in a mini-LP sleeve with a booklet reproducing flyers, photos and posters from the era.
Reissue of this 1983 psychedelic punk single from Japanese artist Keizo Miyanish. "Cortigiana dal velo" and "Mune o tsutsunde" pair acid guitar and bass over tripped out drum programming and loops to produce a psychedelic masterpiece that fits somewhere between the first White Stains seven-inch and Les Rallizes Dénudés oeuvre circa 1980.
