We Release Whatever The Fuck We Want Records will handle the new edition, which comes with liner notes from Chee Shimizu.
It's the first reissue for the valuable album, but Colored Music—a Japanese new wave and experimental group comprising Mansaku Kimura, Shuichi 'Ponta' Murakami (who collaborated with Jun Fukamachi, Yasuaki Shimizu and Haruomi Hosono), Kiyohiko Semba, Tamio 'Doyo' Kawabata and Tatsuhiko Hizawa—has been hotly tipped in recent years, thanks to an edit by Japan Blues and a remix 7-inch from Organic Music boss Chee Shimizu.
Shimizu penned liner notes in English and Japanese for the new release, which comes as a 140-gram vinyl edition with Stoughton tip-on sleeve and as a digipack CD.
WRWTFWW calls the album "an incredible mix of cosmic new wave, unconventional disco, avant-garde synth pop and hybrid electronic funk." It follows a series of Japanese reissues from the label, including Midori Takada's Mkwaju Ensemble LP, Yasuaki Shimizu's Kakashi and Takada's Through The Looking Glass. (The latter two were released in tandem with New York-based Palto Flats.)
