    Keiji Haino and Coa – If a Billion Curses Already Exist, You Should Draw Out the Billion and First Prayer

    Keiji Haino and Coa - If a Billion Curses

    This is a short and totally pleasing CD from the Japanese label Horen, broken up into seven songs of prime psychedelic slop rock wonder. Legendary hurt amp-coaxer Keiji Haino splatters out gobs of fuzz guitar backed up quite simply by two Japanese women named Eddie on bass, vocals and keyboard; and Bill on drums and vocals. Haino’s guitar tone here is more shimmery, trebly and scintillating than usual, adding a nice twist to his usual sound. (Oh, wait, that’s a cretan bulgari on a few tracks.) The two long, wandering songs here are fully ruling and should easily enough send you bussing off into a most pleasant, darkened bedroom full of a smoke of uncertain origin. Definitely for fans of Fushitsusha, although, needless to say, this isn’t nearly as heavy or galaxy hub-bound. If any kind of smoke whatsoever has at any time ever left your lips, you need this. The very light pastel pink cover is unusual for Haino, and it’s also heavily textured in the nicest way. But, as I’ve said before, on Haino collaboration CDs, sometimes another color besides black may appear.
