4 stars HI-SPEED, an obscure (and one-off) Japanese RIO / avantgarde project, were founded in 1994 by MIZUHIRO, who had already been renowned as an animator / animation producer and a founder of Ginjoha, a label for ambient / new-age music. They recorded massive material for their only one album "Erioka Con Animac Planetico" in December 1995, and released in May 1996 upon a Japanese independent label Unknownmix. MIZUHIRO has appeared on stage as a couple of projects (sometimes with Taiji TAKAHASHI) of disco / club music later.

Surely flexible over the common sense in Japanese rock scene with fantastic animac world deeply in Mizuhiro's brain and cynical violent attitude against adulthood around them, I've heard via this art named "Erioka Con Animac Planetico", created by HI-SPEED, a challenging (and sadly short-lived) project with a flood of pure heart and hot blood in themselves (aside that everybody says they could be in the same vein of Picchio Dal Pozzo).

Afraid almost all "common people" might say they go crazy, by attaching such a eccentric sound mischief. Exactly they should activate and spread an innocent motivation and wider scape of mind. Simply they used lots of instruments, including saxophones, guitars, drums, percussion, voices, and especially toys and garbage. Yes children can play with everything, even if it may not clean nor safe & sound. They could show this fact around us naturally. No complexity but definitely their quite harmonized passion play, here is. We can call their play as "nature", methinks. Children's state of mind can alter minute by minute - sometimes happy, sometimes sad, and sometimes upset, irritated ... or so. HI-SPEED might express their unstable feeling with various sounds and noises. Their sounds of pleasure are very warm and gentle, and on the other hand, ones of anger kick our ears aggressively and sharply (featuring electronic noises, loud guitar fuzz, and crazy / sticky saxophone violence). The last track can be called as a deceiver, with hearty riffs and irritating test noises finally ... namely, they might play mischief through the whole album. Please realize their innocence, and you can enjoy this stuff completely. A mysterious, and at the same time, impressive and addictive sound medicine.
