There's so much beautiful music coming from Japan and hardly known as the records almost never pop up over here in Europe. So I'm vere very happy that Jamie Tiller offered to contribute some of his fantastic finds from his trips to Japan. Thanks a lot, Jamie!! Is there anything you'd like to add?

"Well, they say never judge a book by it's cover.. but I say this rule is generally best ignored when it comes to digging records. Japan was proving to be a little different though and the sheer number of lousy records with amazing sleeves was getting disheartening. The cover of this one stood out though; the photograph they used looks like a journey home from a rather quiet night out might might look when all of a sudden you're beginning to think someone might have spiked your drink earlier in the evening. I flipped the sleeve around and I was instantly getting excited by the track titles.. 'Absolute Space', Symptom Angle', 'Triaxial Development'. I hate to admit it but when I saw the year '1976' my heart sank a little.. but still I couldn't resist running straight to the player to check it out. I knew from the moment 'Contact Point' came through the headphones though that Ponta San wasn't going to let anything get between him and the future! Enjoy."

Thanks again! Dear reader, please mae sure you've heard Jamie's great "Evening Shadows" mix over at Noncollective.


EDIT. renamed, rezipped and reupped for your listening pleasure.... Enjoy!

Imagine my surprise when I found this record in the international new arrivals section of my local record store today. The price was $4 or just a tad over 3€. Unbelievable. I love my local record store
