- TAV // Essential Listening -

Later known as Hoodoo Fushimi, Japanese electro funk trailblazer Minoru first rose to prominence in 1985 with this mind-blowing homemade release. Written and composed after long days of teaching high school classes in Kanagawa, Fushimi channelled his off-kilter creativity into his nocturnal music-making experimentation. The result was a radical, DIY singularity - filled with unique shamisen riffs, chromatic synths, bluesy funk, glorious guitar shredding and peculiarly pitched speak-singing vocals. Produced, designed, illustrated and distributed by Fushimi himself, this surreptitious rarity also comes with a four-page, handcrafted comic book insert (with English translations of course)! Thanatos of Funk is truly the
quintessential album for the leftfield spirit of the Japanese underground.
