Bitter Lake Recordings - Mikan Mukku - Kan b/w Chin Dan 7”

Article number: BLR-005
Quantity: 4
While the Japanese new wave duo Mikan Mukku existed from 1982 until 1987, the band's sole recorded output consists of only two songs: the minimal, haunting "Kan" and the more playful yet still ominous "Chin Dan". Recorded in a private studio in Minami-Magome in Tokyo in 1986, both tracks that appear on this single were first released on two separate 7" flexi compilations. Shortly after Mikan Mukku's dissolution, instrumentalist Kotobuki Hikaru became a member of the legendary P-Model throughout late 80s and into the early 90s. Sold or given away primarily at live houses at which Mikan Mukku performed, it is unclear how many of these ultra-rare flexis were distributed or even pressed, but it seems only a handful ever made their way into the world or seem to even exist in the modern day. Still, the recent emergence from total obscurity of these two atmospheric and uniquely Japanese new wave gems has all but guaranteed their place as some of the best and most enigmatic minimal synth to emerge from the island. Essential ;)
