Howard Nishioka - Street Songs

Street Songs (1979) is a secret leftfield voyage into Hawaiian psych unknowns. Just check the furious fuzz of the sample track below (“Carnivourous Dogaramus”). Nishioka’s guitars cast a wide net from electric-detonated space solos to acoustic-led meanderings verging toward American Primitive territory. There is cohesion, though, in his essential looseness of delivery. Looks like Street Songs has become a real holy grail for a lot of folks. FYI- The following year, Nishioka laid-down one of the wildest 7″s of all-time as a leading member of that raw feedback-punk phenomenon, The F**kin Flyin A-Heads. 320 vinyl rip by yours truly. Big thanks to SH for the help!
