Aspirations of Madness, Blank Forms' fifth collection of archival, unpublished, or newly translated texts, takes its title from a series of interviews with Japanese free jazz pioneer Masayuki Takayangi that were published in Japanese in 1975-76 and are published here in English for the first time. The interviews provide a rare look at Takayanagi's eccentric practice and personality, both long under-recognized by audiences outside (and often, inside) of Japan.

Bought an LP from 1982 by an outfit called Jazz that's named 'Live Jazz.' I got it on a hunch because it's on the Better Days label and features Yasuaki Shimizu and other members of Mariah. It's a little experimental and has some really bizarre spoken-word bits. As you can gather, the release is pretty unsearchable... just wondering if anyone has heard it or knows anything more?

Nice revive! Picked up a few of Yamashita's albums - really cool. Also, kinda hard to find English info for for some of his stuff.

On that subject, I never did find anything more about the Live Jazz album, budo jeru. All good,
