Flied Egg
- Goodbye CD. Reissue of rare Deep Purple influenced Japanese heavy psych blues rock from the early 70s.

"Flied Egg was a Japanese trio, and I'm really not sure if their weird name was intentional or not. Their farewell album "Goodbye" reveals, although not the most stylistically focused band you've heard, three guys who obviously had lots of fun and enjoyment in what they were doing. The first side was recorded live, and consisted of loud guitar based hard rock. It's rather simple and raw music, but still very enjoyable if you're in for something hard and energetic. And the 12-minute "Five More Pennies" includes some good jamming. The studio side is a bit more sophisticated and progressive, especially the excellent and complex instrumental "521 Seconds Schizophrenic Symphony" that includes some tasteful organ and piano too. The melodic "Out to the Sea" borrows the opening guitar chords from King Crimson's "Epitaph". "Before you Descend" has on the other hand more in common with the first side of the album. If you can find it, "Goodbye" will be well worth a listen if you're into hard 70's rock with some progressive elements thrown in here and there." - (vintageprog)

This band sounds like deep purple, a highly recommended album for j-prog bands.

Excellent post and very nice way to redact this kind of information. I think we can't ignore Yanagi's albums because his music is amazing, specially the psych blues rock as a new genre.

So, I don't actually believe this will have effect.
