Zunou Keisatsu-1st Album[1971 Japan Protest Rock]

also known as Brain Police,not the 60's USA Group
this album is quite obscure

i got this one by e-mail from Lizardzon(Time Has Told Me)

Zunou Keisatsu(a.k.a Brain Police) was a Band led by Panta
their music could be described as rock music stripped to their
barebones and adding some folk to it.their lyrics are very political

they recorded around 6 albums wich are recorded live(if im correct)

they disbanded in 1975 (reformed for a short time in 1990)
their singer started having a solo career and their guitarist(Hiroshi Narazaki) was in Datetenryu and played Bass in
Les Rallizes Denudes.
and did some work with Acid Mothers Temple.
Their drummer collaborated with Kan Mikami and Kazuki Tomokawa.

note on the cover:
This is a picture (not a real one but made from the testimony of witnesses) of a man masquerading as a motorcycle cop who stole 300 millions yen in 1968 (the biggest robbery in Japan ever). The money has never been recovered and the identity of the theft is still a mystery.

I have this one in my collection and it didn't do much for me. Just like much politically motivated Swedish progg, the music doesn't stand on it's own merit and not understanding the lyrics is a real problem.

the comparison with the swedes is a good one but as i'm actually a big fan of trad gras et al., i don't mind at all. in fact, i'm happy!

thanks for another great post.

Thanks for this, but for some reason can't get track 5... Strange.

Well, the description that dirk gave made me think of some swedish "progg" too, though I dont think there are any similarities at al to "Träd, gräs och stenar" (great creative musicians, mostly instrumental). Though one might say that there are some similarities to for example "Blå tåget".

I had no problem with track 5, by the way.

Interesting, I wonder what kind of music they play on that times, because seeing a japanese people in the second world war, I guess that would be kind of weird.
