Dementos re-issused and out now!
The first-ever remastered vinyl reissue of the album Dementos is out now. In this second work from his Paris-London trilogy, Shimizu focuses on the relation between music and words, harnessing dynamic syncopated rock/world-music rhythms with vocals and wordplay bursting with mischievous energy. Recorded in the UK in 1988 with contributions from a host of British artists including David Cunningham, who provided intros to some tracks, the lyrics and vocals are by Shimizu together with his sister Mieko Shimizu. Stunning sleeve with art direction by Mic Itaya.
