Night Watch
Sunday February 22nd, 2015 with Dāv Fot
The Fays! Jade Warrior! Koenji Hyakkei!

Another Nightwatch, more LPs to feature - the Fays is new, and the Koenji Hyakkei is a re-issue of one of their 1st LPs.
A bit of a scoop, so far as I know - the new recordings from Ottawa's own kings of swirling, psychedelic, electric folk, The Fays!

Back-to-back features, this time going back to recordings from 1973 (but not released until 1998) by English world/folk/prog band Jade Warrior. The LP also contains some standard blues-rock-ish material... but we'll stay with the more psychedelic side of Jade Warrior!

Continuing on the ''world music'vein, but switching to Zeuhl (kinda - the only studio LP (1972) from Belgian band, the Lagger Blues Machine)to make way for the next feature...

... on Japanese Zeuhl band Koenji Hiyakkei, and a reissue of their 1994 LP 'The 100 Sights of Keonji'!

From Zeuhl Q-Prog/RIO ca. 1975! Maneige does show the genesis of what Koenji is going for, it just didn't have the punk and post-punk influence to draw upon!

Maneige - Les Porches Canadian
Haqq al-Yaqin
Om - Advaitic Songs
Finishing up with the obligatory lengthy track! I have a lot of respect for drone/doom metal, but don't make a steady diet of it. This band, tho', has a great take on the genre, from their 2nd-to-latest LP, released in 2013.

Very much enjoyed the music. Need to listen to Koenji segment again!
