    Keiji Haino – Watashi Dake?

    Keiji Haino - Watashi Dake?

    This rare, obscure, Japanese LP from 1981 was Keiji Haino’s very first release. It’s a very sperm-filled set of recordings and debuts many of the crude elements of Haino’s technique that would more fully blossom a decade later. The first track maintains a very quiet area of contemplation occasionally interjected with intense shouts, whispers and coos—all accented with Haino’s copyrighted feedback microphone. The rest of the tracks are mostly in the shorter range, featuring Haino solo on guitar and voice. The sounds range from spare pick-to-string hits and scrapes with solemn vocals, soft singing with occasional guitar tangles, mangled feedback noise with shouted vocals, the appearance of a strange and low-pitched string instrument, sparse string fluctuations with beautiful singing, shy guitar noodling with short shouts, muffled ’n’ stumbled strums with high-pitched vocal interjections and plenty of quiet muffled rhythms. It comes housed in a very bare, private press-looking black cover with photos of Haino standing in a concrete circle.
