Nishimura Takuya : Bass (from Che-SHIZU etc)
Shimura Koji : Drums (from Acid mothers temple)
Suzuki Junzo : Vocal, Guitar & Words

Miminokoto are totally classic and they have the feel of an earlier generation of PSF artists, with doomy death-decadent ballads soaked in reverb while single chords hang in the air and Junzo's vocals waft around them like smoke. The lead guitar work is totally thrilling and the rhythm section of bassist Takuya Nishimura and drummer Koji Shimura have that classic minimal/explosive style down to a teardrop. A classic PSF side, an amazing reinvention, this is the sound of the psychedelic Japanese underground. Highly recommended.

Apparently Miminokoto is the project of Koji Shimura who can boast of involvement with much of the royalty of Japanese underground psych over the past twenty years including Mainliner, White Heaven, High Rise and various Acid Mothers incarnations. That alone should give you a vague idea of what to expect from this obi-stripped import job but it doesn't tell the whole story by any means; for while the dreamy guitar tones, occasional crazy solos and over-the-top vocals might seem familiar from his previous groups in general the feel is much more gentle and low-key than any of them.. Perhaps like Majutsu No Niwa only looser and less etrad' sounding. There's a downbeat, dirgey quality to it that also reminds me a little of the likes of Onna or Suishou No Fune. Pleasantly idiosyncratic!
