V.A. - VANITY / FINEST SELECTION (LP)


"Limited to 1000 copies on white vinyl. Vanity Records is one of the best Japanese music secrets. Sounds like New York's late 70's post-punk scene such as James Chance & The Contortions, Martin Rev or even ESG. Early techno gems, disco punk and noisy landscapes with a real Japanese flavour. Founded in Kyoto in 1978 by chief editor of 'Rock Magazine' Mr. Agi Yuzuru, this label had a short but very interesting production. Only 10 long player albums, 3 singles, 1 double compilation and few cassettes have been recorded between 1978 and 1981. Few flexi-discs too were given with 'Rock magazine' issues during 1980. All of the records were extremeliy limited and were released between 200 and 500 copies only. Most of the covers were handmade and nowadays original pressings are impossible to find and change hands for hundreds of dollars. Here's your last chance to get the finest selection from one of the best underground and experimental movements.
