Psyche De Loid
NARITA, Munehiro
Cat. No. : NRC002
Munehiro Narita, the original "psychedelic speed freak", is for many people the undisputed king of acid–fuzz guitar.

In active since the late 70s, Narita is a Japanese psychedelic underground legend. After playing in cult bands like Kyoaku no Intention, he founded the brutal heavy–psych power trio High Rise in the 80s. His furious guitar playing, which involves lethal doses of fuzz–wah at ear–splitting volume, can also be heard on his current band Green Flames (featuring Mitsuru Tabata from Acid Mothers Temple).

In 2014 Narita released a Japanese only CD titled "Psyche De Loid", doing heavy guitar fuzzed–out covers of classic psych songs from the 60s/70s. But "Psyche De Loid" was also the first ever psychedelic album recorded using the Vocaloid technology. Very popular in Japan, Vocaloid is a software / singing synthesizer: you enter the lyrics of a song into the program, add music, and then you can have one of the Vocaloids – or "Vocal Androids", mostly female – sing for you in a bizarre "android" type vocals.

"Vocaloid" is often associated with J–Pop but on "Psyche De Loid" Narita smash this "genre" into a wall with the contrast of killer, Ron Asheton–alike piercing fuzz–wah guitar and child–like "android" vocals, featuring surreal covers of tracks by Stooges, Hendrix, Blue Cheer, Shocking Blue, Pink Floyd, MC5, Jefferson Airplane...

Previously available as a Japanese only CD, here’s the first ever vinyl edition with new artwork.

"One of the finest acid–punk shredders to ever walk the planet, Munehiro Narita gives these time–honored psych rock classics a serious kick in the ass, in the most bizarre and Japanese of musical settings" – Steve Krakow (Galactic Zoo)

"Munehiro Narita (High Rise et al) bleeds all over a series of massively re–wired cover versions of classic psych while computer generated little girl vocals relocate the whole damn thing in another future altogether." – David Keenan (Wire, Volcanic Tongue)
