Giant Skyflower Band

Blood of the Sunworm

Giant Skyflower Band’s purpose is to examine in detail the idiom of Bummer Psych; the strain of damaged Anglo-pop music pioneered by Syd Barrett that arguably reached its apex with The Television Personalities’ Painted Word LP in the mid-80’s, but found new life in Japan via the genius of Tori Kudo and like-minded acts such as Nagisa Ni te and Tenniscoats. Their debut consists of depressing pop songs and damaged instrumentals on a hazy, cryptic journey through a busted kaleidoscope, behind a dusty mirror & up through the rafters.
