Semi biography
A Fukuoka-based psychedelic rock outfit SEMI ('Cicada' in English) were formed in 1990 by three promising players Kazuhiko KURIYAMA (bass), Koji MIZUTANI (drums), and Yasuhiro OKAZAKI (guitar). They have kept highly motivated to build up completely long, loud, improvised psychedelia on stage. That's why they have not released any albums a long while since their debut, but finally they released the eponymous album compiled with their four-hour (!) live material in 2000 via a Japanese independent label Oz Disc. Although their second album (and the first studio one) 'Maboroshi' was released in 2003, no suspicion a live stage should be their motherland really.

Semi Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by DamoXt7942
Forum & Site Admin Group Avant, Crossover & Neo Teams

5 stars We, Psychedelic Progressive Rock freaks, can say that SEMI have reached one of the peaks of Psychedelia Mountains, can't we?

Not simply loud nor fuzzy this Japanese psychedelic vanguard should be ... first of all, please try the first track. Yasuhiro's mellow, acoustic-flavoured, relaxing but somewhat cynical, distorted guitar solo is exactly the symbol as not only aggressively improvised but also well-arranged and refined psychic energizer. They should have gone away into the endless deep underground ... why can the audience stop their play, and why can we stop playing their album? No matter what happened, we should follow their unlimited passion play thoroughly.

And surprisingly they have colourful appearances - sometimes they can show loud, fuzzy improvisation full of feedback, with a Japanese common psychedelic progressive style, sometimes heavy, bluesy, sticky, dry-fruity riffs like Krautrock, and sometimes simple guitar shouts with a hard-edged rhythm section. It's very amazing the psychedelic world around them should be not only loud but actually QUIET, delightful ... their inner space might be unfathomably deep into mind-expanding core itself. Each player and instrument can be so unrivaled but mysteriously not so pretentious from others - yes, they can be well-balanced I wanna say. The three SEMI founders have never changed nor paused, and constructed the peak of Japanese Psychedelic Rock scene, not climbed up the peak already constructed by other artists.

Their four-hour live stage should not be too long for us freaks to enjoy without breathing - absolutely, we can see the novel milestone of Psychedelic Progressive Rock.

Thanks to DamoXt7942 for the artist addition.
