Minami Deutsch - Self Titled
For this weeks Vinyl Friday post , we are heading over to Japan. I never thought for a million years that I'd be championing the great music coming out of Japan with such bands as Kikagaku Moyo, Sunday's & Cybele, Bo Ningen amungst others. I'll be talking about them at a later stage but for this week it's all about Minami Deutsch. A four piece band from Tokyo who are inspired by all things Krautrock by listening to such bands as Can and NEU! This album being their self titled debut album.
Minami Deutsch - Vocalism Ai - Forever Takemitsu
This album was originally released by Cardinal Fuzz in 2015 in a white cover as opposed to the 2016 Gurugurubrain release which was black. Gurugurubrain are a Japanese label that has some outstanding bands associated with them, bands like Kikakaku Moyo, Sunday's & Cybele, Dhidalah and Hu-Hai.
Minami Deutsch - Sunrise, Sunset
The Gurugurubrain copy that I have is limited to 150 copies on cream vinyl. All copies have since sold out. The Cardinal Fuzz release has two extra live songs on it. It is limited to 500 copies on white vinyl and has also since sold out.
They haven't had many other releases except a split 7" single with Hog. Hopefully they will give us some new material this year with a 2 year absence. Psych bands don't don't tend to hang around.
