TENNISCOATS - ALL ABOARD! (CD)


"All Aboard! continues the band's collaborative tradition. Tenniscoats have joined forces with legendary Japanese drummer Ikuro Takahashi, active since the mid-70s and revered for his work with experimental and psych/folk icons like High Rise, Fushitsusha, Maher Shalal Hash Baz, Nagisa Ni Te and Che Shizu. Takahashi first played with Tenniscoats a decade ago when they visited his hometown Sapporo, the snowed-in capital of Japan's icy north island Hokkaido. So in 2005, when they began to record with Australian expat Richard Horner in his Sapporo studio Black Snowflake Sound, they naturally asked Takahashi to join them. The result, pieced together over years of annual visits to Sapporo, is an album that presents Tenniscoats at their most relaxed and most compelling. Nominally their "rock" record, if only because they often perform drummerless, All Aboard! is warm, loose and sprawling, while retaining those hypnotic Tenniscoats melodies. It is their first album for Chapter Music since concert opus Live Wanderus in 2005." (label info)
