"I'm probably going out on a limb here, but from my vantage point, this is not only the most brilliant of all contemporary Japanese bands, but perhaps the greatest group currently operating in the world."
- Alternative Press


"KOENJIHYAKKEI is a unique concept for Tatsuya Yoshida (of the renowned bass and drum duo RUINS), and it may go down as his greatest achievement: the most perfect fusion of straight prog, the avant-garde and hardcore punk. Amen." - Pitchfork


Hi Everyone!

The new album from Japan's premier Avant-Progressive, Jazz Fusion, Post-MathCore, Zeuhl band - KOENJIHYAKKEI - is now up for pre-orders at our BANDCAMP Page and in our Paypal Shop!

Thanks to our Kickstarter supporters, "Dhorimviskha" is not only being released on CD, but is also coming out as a Gatefold Double LP. Because of the long lead time required for vinyl manufacturing, the 2xLP is scheduled for a November release, while the CD will be out by the end of this month. However - EVERYONE who pre-orders any format through our Bandcamp Page will get a Digital Download of the album on the CD release date - AUGUST 31st! (And if you don't care about receiving a digital copy, then our standard Paypal Shop has got you covered - and will give you free shipping in the USA to boot!).

We have a variety of options up for orders, including a handful of Kickstarter exclusive editions (limited to 175 individually numbered copies) available on a first come, first served basis. And we are pleased to announce that we have added another extra bonus to all 175 Kickstarter 2xLPs - (!). In addition to the exclusive hand-numbered insert, each will also come with a full color 8.5" "Dhorimviskha" Vinyl Magnet!

Kickstarter

You can see lots of pre-production pictures and check out all of the pre-order options at our Bandcamp page HERE.

Item! In our last update we announced the arrival of DAZZLING KILLMEN "Face Of Collapse" cassette tapes to our Bandcamp Store - and now standing side-by-side, in soul-searing solidarity, you'll find pro-packaged cassettes of two more Steve Albini produced gems from SKiN GRAFT's Way-Back machine - SHORTY's "Fresh Breath" and SPACE STREAKINGS "7-Toku"! Make your way to our Bandcamp Page, put all three tapes in your shopping cart, make the appropriate clicks and leave the rest to us!

Thats all for now - but check back soon - another new T-Shirt will be announced before the month is out!

Thanks Everyone!

Mark

Hi There -

First of all, thanks to EVERYONE who made the KOENJIHYAKKEI Kickstarter campaign such a success. If you pledged on the campaign, we'll continue to update you at the kickstarter page HERE.

And speaking of Gatefold Double Albums...

If you've been around for a while, you may remember that at the tail end of 2016 - and in celebration of SKiN GRAFT Record's 25th anniversary (!) - we released a remastered, Deluxe Gatefold Double Vinyl LP (accompanied by a 12" x 12" book!) of SKiN GRAFT's very first full length - the iconic "Face Of Collapse" by DAZZLING KILLMEN.

It was also the first album that we released day and date on our Bandcamp page. Since then, we've continued to make titles from our back catalog available. However one glaring ommision was the original, "pre-remastering" master recording of "Face Of Collapse" - as heard upon its orignal release back in 1994.

To right this wrong, when you next jump over to our Bandcamp page you'll find a brand-spanking new entry - DAZZLING KILLMEN "Face Of Collapse" (Original Master Recording) available to order: Digitally, as a glass mastered CD, - AND on a Hi-Bias, professionally replicated CASSETTE Tape!

And no worries - the remastered Special Edition 2xLP is also in-stock and can even be purchased in a bundle with the Orignal Master Recording.

Quantities are limited!

NEW GATEFOLD DOUBLE ALBUM!

at KICKSTARTER.COM


 


"Some bands you just have to hear. Japan's KOENJIHYAKKEI (aka Koenji Hyakkei aka Hundred Sights of Koenji) are just such a band. Headed by vocalist / composer / drummer extraordinaire Tatsuya Yoshida (of the renowned bass and drum duo RUINS) and emboldened by overcharged reeds, glittery keyboards and a soaring front-woman speaking in somersaulting tongues, KOENJIHYAKKEI blend progressive rock, jazz fusion, symphonic rock and neoclassicism with the energy of hardcore punk, the volume of metal and the attitude of rock in opposition."


((( KOENJIHYAKKEI KICKSTER is ARCHIVED HERE )))


Hi Everyone -

This is Mark writing. The video up top is just a sample of the 62 minutes of music KOENJIHYAKKEI have recorded for "Dhorimvishka", their first new album since 2005's "Angherr Shisspa". I've heard the entire thing and it is incredible.

Now - historically Koenjihyakkei's albums have been issued on CD - and "Dhorimviskha" will continue in this tradition, however we've issued recent releases from Yoshida's Sax RUINS and RUINS Alone on vinyl as well.  - But due to "Dhorimvishka's" length, the sound quality would be greatly compromised if all 62 minutes were squeezed onto just two sides of a single Vinyl LP.

Unfortunately, despite all of the "vinyl comeback" hype, we've seen declines in the demand for physical formats of music year after year - so much so that many albums have not yet recouped their initial manufacturing and origination expenses.

So that's where you come in. All of the songs have been recorded, mixed and mastered - and the album is already being scheduled for release digitally and on compact disc - but if you would like to own "Dhorimviskha" in a slick, deluxe Gatefold Sleeved Double Vinyl LP edition, here is your chance to help make that happen.

For the next two weeks, we're asking for your help to fund the manufacture a vinyl release of "Dhorimviskha" through a Kickstarter Campaign created by SKiN GRAFT and KOENJIHYAKKEI.


Here are a few key things to understand about
Kickstarter and Crowdfunding:

• Kickstarter is an all-or-nothing platform. If we don’t raise the funds before the end of the campaign, we get $00- and the album will will not be released on vinyl.

If you pledge support, you won't be charged until the end of the campaign, and even then - only if the campaign is successful.

• You actually get something tangible in return
for the investment. We can accept pledges from all over and will ship rewards worldwide.

Even if you don't have a turntable, you can pledge funds and get a the CD version or Digital Download in return. And you'll get it before the official release date!


You can see a complete list of rewards, preview some of the artwork and make a pledge / pre-order at this direct link HERE. We'll continue to post updates there as the campaign goes on.

The band and I appreciate that funding a campaign such as this requires a bit of a leap of faith. If the community sees us through to a successfully funded campaign, we'll do our best to meet or exceed everyone's expectations. Please help us spread the news, we've only got two weeks to see this through. Below are links to some assets that can be used to help get the word out.

Thanks Everyone!

Mark, Tatsuya and all of Koenjihyakkei

STREAMING PREVIEW:

PDF One-Sheet

Hi Everyone!
Let's turn things over to Thymme Jones of Cheer-Accident - who is currently on the road and has composed this special message for our readers:

Our 19th (!!) album.
"Fades".
Vinyl and CD.

This here collection of toons finds us heading into what could almost be considered "Kraut Pop" territory, but that's only part of the story. Another part of the story is that every single one of these songs was written by Jeff Libersher, my musical co-conspirator of 30+ years.

It was an honor to take a step back and be "merely the drummer" on many of these tracks. Additionally, Todd Rittmann (Dead Rider/US Maple) recorded the sucker, so it possesses a unique and queasy rock sheen that is like no other "look" we've sported up until now.

Also - Tell your friends, plug your ears and guard your corpses! We're coming to your town... if your town happens to be any of these towns:
