LSD March-Totsuzen Honoo No Gotoku[2002 Japan Underground Psych-Rock]

this album was released in to the rest of the world as Suddenly Like Flames in 2004

While other Les Rallizes Denudes influenced bands like DMBQ & High Rise represent the bands heavy side.
LSD March represents a other side of Les Rallizes Denudes which can be heard on their record Mizutani(recorded between '70-'73,released on cd in 1990),where they build up the tension song by song and ending with two heavier songs(The Last One and a other song]
[written by myself]

"Downer murk and amp-flaming distorto rock from a young Japanese psychedelic rock trio in the wasted, wigged-out tradition of many on those PSF Tokyo Flashback comps, also harking further back of course to underground '70s lo-fi legends Les Rallizes Denudes! LSD-march, named for a track on the first, heaviest album by krautrockers Guru Guru, slowly whisper and wander through a veil of feedback and plodding rhythms. There's both gentle and searing stuff to be found here. These guys are more serious, mysterious and melancholy than Acid Mothers Temple, with a definite Velvets vibe at times. And when the guitars get cranked, this sounds like the Neil Youngiest of Nagisa Ni Te freakouts. With liner notes (and stamp of approval) from translator/psych expert Alan Cummings."
--Aquarius Records

Comparisons could be made to Les Rallizes Denudes, the first PSF Fushitsusha, White Heaven, Shizuka, and perhaps most appropriately Miminokoto. Known mostly because of their tracks on the Night Gallery compilations, LSD-march has become almost as legendary for their unavailability as they have for their incredible music.

Highly Recommended Album!

i was pretty impressed by this hypnotic psychedelic opus. really good stuff, a little bit above the Les Rallizes Denudes comp you posted previously.

it goes beyond the psych stylings of the Group Sounds stuff, and the oeuvre of Apryl Fool, Foodbrain, and all the other Love, Peace, and Poetry Japanese psych i've heard thus far.

thanks for once again convincing me of Japan's supremacy in the field of hippie make-out music. i'd highly recommend this album to any Can, Rallizes or Boris fans.

This record was really intense. I had my ipod on shuffle and one of the songs on this album came and just totally blew me away. Fantastic.
