Descriptions, Reviews, &c.
A blistering live performance at one of Tokyo’s longest running avant garde venues by one of Tokyo’s longest running avant garde bands. A breathtaking performance of over twenty stop-on-a-dime Ruins classics, Mandala 2000 captures the raw power and visceral energy of this dynamic band better than any studio recording ever could. Also included is twenty minutes of encores featuring the versatile and dynamic violinist Katsui Yuji. Intense, powerful and frighteningly complex sonic masterpieces by two performers who make bass and drums sound like an orchestra of synchronized jet engines. -Tzadik
