Yoshida Tatsuya! Yoshida Tatsuya! Yoshida Tatsuya! Yoshida Tatsuya!
I didn't know he had such an impressive CV: of course, I know Ruins and Koenjihyakkei, but I'm surprised to discover he also played with Zeni Geva or Gerogerigegege. But I'm not a specialist of Japanese avant-garde rock!
Funny to see how Japanese albums seem a bit... "confused" about the language to use on the cover or in the booklet.
