Music as Sensual Tie, Pt. 2 (Curio or Virtuoso)



Japanese guitarist, musician and engineer Ryuichi Daijo introduces The Shaggs (USA) and Starfuckers (Italy) with an undermined hypothesis that the two groups have an enigmatic commonness - well-prepared or not, well-trained or not, you may observe light-hearted but uniquely enjoyable sounds.

The Shaggs has a nice family story, and their amateurish music is now covered by some hot groups. The Starfuckers is soft, quiet, but also sharp and meditative. Comments by Ryuichi Daijo, produced by Kazue Kobata.
