Description
The story of Japanese psychedelic band Apryl Fool and their eponymous debut album is simply extraordinary. It was the vehicle by which bassist Haroumi Hosono first came to prominence, years before he became known as the "Godfather of Japanese electronica" as the founding member and leader of Yellow Magic Orchestra, though this musical titan had work released prior to the groups 1968 founding, such as the song "The Sea Of Summer Day," recorded with Yuko Okuyama and released by King Records the year before. Drummer Takashi "Rei Matsumoto was a Beatles maniac that had covered songs by Themand Sam & Dave in his earlier group, Burns, while pioneering prog-rock keyboardist Hiroyoshi Yanagida and guitarists Chu Kosaka and Eiji Kikuchi had all been part of a group called The Floral, formed in 1967 through the Japanese wing of the official fan club of The Monkees (whom they supported during a Japanese tour enacted in October 1968). In September 1969, Apryl Fool played behind musical theatre group Tokyo Kid Brothers, the recording issued in minute quantity as the Love & Banana EP, issued on Columbia Japans Musicolor subsidiary; Apryl Fools own LP, also issued on Musicolor that year, had extended spacey psychedelic freak jams in the form of "Tanger" and "Pledging My Time," marathon blues-rock tracks such as "April Blues" and "Honky Tonk Jam," with the employed English sounding fairly credible, though both parts of epic opus "The Last Mother Land" feature Japanese lyrics. Of course, the day that the LP was actually released is reportedly the day that Apryl Fool announced their termination, giving this scarce release another level of legend for connoisseurs.
