Up-Tight
Early Years
Archive #40
CD
OUT OF STOCK!

Expanded reissue of this Japanese psych unit's five track 1999 album with the addition of two unreleased live tracks that date from the group's earliest incarnation back in 1994. In many ways, Up-Tight are the archetypal Japanese psychedelic rock group, all black raybans, endless acid-wah solos and cigarette smoking blues. Their early recordings are a particularly beautiful in the way that they connect elemental R 'n' B Velvets-styled oblivions with transcendental avant-extended modes and song forms that function as jumping off-points for some of the lowest-slung six-string guitar immolation this side of Rallizes themselves. The audio is fully re-mastered and the disc comes housed in a 2.5 panel foldout heavy stock sleeve in a pressing of 600 copies.
