Vinyl LP pressing. Avant-folk singer-songwriter Mikami has been a legend in Japan's underground music scene for almost five decades. With his inimitable singing style that can veer from an emotional whisper to a gut-wrenching shriek all within the same phrase, Mikami's music can be challenging for some, but never less than thrilling. On BANG!, featuring cover art by noted illustrator and frequent Mikami collaborator Toshio Saeki, the equally fierce free-jazz combo The Yosuke Yamashita Trio acts as his sympathetic backing band, providing just the right balance of groove and beautiful cacophony.
