COLD SOUP (w/ Tetuzi AKIYAMA 秋山徹次)
by Tetuzi Akiyama & Che Chen
First release from this duo of Tokyo-based guitarist, Tetuzi Akiyama, and New York’s Che Chen. Akiyama is in rare “Don’t Forget to Boogie” form here; his heavily distorted, locomotive guitar lines chugging away as Chen’s electrified fiddle drones, screeches and scrapes. Sine wave generators and a modified tape delay round out the mix. Sidelong live track on one side, studio jams on the flip. Released on Jozef Van Wissem’s Incunabulum Records.
