An Interview with Kazuo Takeda of Blues Creation...

It’s called the butterfly effect – the notion that the flaps of a butterfly’s wings in China can create a tornado in America. But sometimes a tornado in England may lead to the flaps of a butterfly’s wings in Japan, such as in this case. And what a beautiful butterfly it is. No, wait, beautiful isn’t the word I’m looking for. How about dark, brooding, menacing…

The first two Black Sabbath albums turned the Japanese band Blues Creation upside down. Formerly a typically psych tinged blues-rock band, the new sound of rock manifested itself through their brilliant and criminally obscured Demon & Eleven Children. What starts with a soundtrack to a nuclear holocaust and ends with a rightfully impending end of days feel to it, is often heralded as the album which laid the foundations for Japanese Doom, alongside Flower Travellin’ Band’s Satori.

Kazuo Takeda, guitar player and man of vision behind Blues Creation, was kind enough to answer a few questions.
