Urabe, Masayoshi

Urabe, Masayoshi: Kampanerura (Utech Records)
Label: Utech Records    
Released in: USA    

"Kampanerura is the name of a boy appearing in the children's story Night on the Galactic Railroad by Kenji Miyazawa (1896-1933), Japanese poet and author of children's literature. A boy with pure soul transmigrates and becomes a dissipated man around a trip to the bottom in Asia. From accompanying text by Masayoshi Urabe

"What are my legs on? What are my feet standing on? Sand? I feel something sharp and pointed! And a gentle breeze... where am I? The sea? I feel it flowing! I've crossed over, over the river. My feet were once nailed to a board warped by the sun. I feel something sticky. What asshole dropped his gum here? Now it burns, burns. I'm not standing on dry ice, am I? They say that a cold burn and a heat burn feel the same."

Masayoshi Urabe on electric guitar, alto sax, harmonica and other instruments. Special guest Teruhisa Nanbu of Aural Fit on drums and percussion."-Utech Records
