(99% because only the album Satoru is missing as its very hard to come across - came in a 3CD boxset limited to 600 copies)

(Kazuki Tomokawa) is a prolific Japanese acid-folk singer, poet, author, artist and racing tipster, active in the Japanese music scene since the early seventies. He is often described as a “screaming philosopher” due to his idiosyncratic singing style. Whether screaming his lungs out while thrashing his guitar within an inch of its life (his legendarily wild performances frequently end up with all strings snapped during a single song), creating gorgeously romantic and limpid tone-scapes, Tomokawa never remains any less than himself. He walks a path of untutored intelligence, piercing sensitivity, and fully exorcised passions all too rare in the shallow husk of today’s debased world.
