Artist: CHE-SHIZU
Title: 火の環 = Hi No Tamaki
Format: CD
Label: Jingen
Country: Japan
Price: $15.00
2016 release featuring Tori Kudo, Chie Mukai, Takuya Nishimura, and Takahashi Tsukasa.

Artist: CHE-SHIZU
Title: A Journey
Format: CD
Label: PSF
Country: Japan
Price: $21.00
"Second CD by this group featuring Chie Mukai. The sound is a very advanced, mature/classic form of "rock," with guitars, piano, bass, drums and streaming, evocative vocals from Mukai. Hard to classify, theres a non-cliched slant to their music that one almost never experiences in the horrific corridors of near-rock. Surreal dreamscapes, perfectly realized."

Artist: CHE-SHIZU
Title: Nazareth
Format: CD
Label: PSF
Country: Japan
Price: $21.00
"Live material from Chie Mukais group, recorded in 1981, who play "ambient psychedelic music... includes Tori Kudo, leader of Maher Shalal Hash Baz." From Alan Cummingss "Japanese Psychedelia Primer" in The Wire: ""The dream-pop psych unit Ché-Shizu are one of the rare examples of a traditional Japanese instrument (in this case, the three-stringed kokyu bowed fiddle) being used in a psychedelic context. Nazareth is a sometimes shambling compilation of their live recordings and features the fascinatingly atonal sound of Chie Mukais kokyu drifting through the cracks of conventional melody. The groups interest in traditional English folk music is just one more indication of the breadth and complexity of underground Japans continuing interaction with the West."" - FE.
