With the cute innocence of Shonen Knife and the 43-tone organ of Harry Partch, Syzygys have been fashioning twisted and catchy pop songs since 1985. These performances capture the band live in 1988 and is so beautifully recorded it could have been a studio date. Accompanying the delightful duo is legendary guitarist Imahori Tsuneo playing everything from Bill Frisell to Arto Lindsay's skronk and bassist Shiina Tatsuto. Absolutely charming: somewhere Harry Partch is smiling. Microtonal pop for the 21st Century.
