Kuni Kawachi クニ河内 "Utae Nakunaru Maeni" 歌えなくなる前に 1972 Japan Psych Rock first solo Lp ~


Kuni Kawachi クニ河内 "Utae Nakunaru Maeni" 歌えなくなる前に 1972  Japan Psych Rock first solo Lp

official website


Possibly one of the best solo works of Kuni Kawachi I ever heard. At least it was expected to be as boring as "Boku no Koe ga Kikoerukai" released by Kawachi the same year but it's not. This album is much better though nothing really outstanding. Nevertheless it's solid melodious psycho-folk, sometimes dramatic, most of the tracks are orchestrated and I regarded some of them as good indeed. All in all, no particular pretension, very tuneful and slightly psychedelic....~



Born in Fukuoka Prefecture. Formed "The Happenings Four" in the heyday of GS and debuted in "You want". Won the composer's Grand Prix in 1972 at "Japanese Transparent People" at the Japan Kayo Festival sponsored by Yamaha. After that, he began to work on making songs for children, and appeared for 12 years as a personality of NHK Educational TV "One-to-Don!" As an arranger, he received the Original Confidence (Orikon) Arrangement Award for Ken Naoko, "Abayo". As a representative song, Akira Fuse "Saitoyasumi" NHK everyone's song "Dracula's Song", "Bride of the Rose", etc. The CM songs that I worked on are 800 songs, including "Pikapika first grader (Shogakukan)" and "Tobato all raisins". Lived in Hokkaido since 1994.....~


Kuni Kawachi (クニ 河内, born 1940) is a Japanese keyboardist. His first musical act was in The Happenings Four, and also performed writing contributions to Tokyo Kid Brothers’ version of Throw Away the Books, We're Going Out On the Streets. He also recorded with members of the Flower Travellin' Band. 

His first solo album, Kirikyogen, featured Hideki Ishima and Joe Yamanaka of the Flower Travellin' Band, and includes an early version of the song "Map", later released as a single by them and even later featured on CD reissues of Satori. 
Kuni Kawachi also composed the music to the video game Vegas Dream....~


Kuni Kawachi is the leader of the unusual guitarless GS debuted in 1968, Happnings Four, and Happenings Four has been active until 1972 after the GS boom decline, leaving five albums as a talented GS. The band had originally been active as a jazz piano trio in Hakata, and was an adult professional band who hit the scene. Kuni Kawachi was also a top player as a keyboard player for Japanese rock at that time, working as a player for producing Tigers's tour members and substantial production of albums. Happenings Four was a full-blown Western-oriented band, so it was bought high by Yuya Uchida who was planning to enter the world of Japanese rock by English-language rock, and it was a live of two CDs recorded on January 26, 1970. He participated in the flowers of The Mops, Golden Cups, Yuya Uchida's Bands as a band and as a guest keyboard player with '70 Rock and Roll Jam '70. 
Happenings Four strengthened the concept album color with the album "Outsider's World" from Toshiba in July 1970, while the late Flowers who were in the state of dissolution were late because Uchida Yuya was removed from the members as a producer Powerful vocalist Joe Yamanaka from 491 (For Nine Ace), a former pop GS who had joined the Flowers midway (Joja Akira → Joe Akira → Joe Yamanaka), from psychedelic GS Beavers in earnest and the highest guitarist at that time -Reorganized as Flower Travelin Band, with Hideki Ishima as the center. The debut single "Crash" joined with the Hino Yasumasa Quintet was released from Columbia in May 1970, and the debut album "Anywhere" was released in October 1970, but the album is a heavy · · · · · all five songs in Britain and the United States It was a rock cover. However, after the Japanese rock album "Kyogen" with Kuni Kawachi, all five songs transferred to Atlantic original "SATORI" 1971. 4 became a masterpiece that Julian Coup deserves praise as Japan's biggest rock masterpiece without complaints, raising the rating each year after its release. "SATORI Part 1 / SATORI Part 2" was single-cut from "SATORI", but in September 1971 "human being included in" Kyogen "in an AB face split single with American newcomer Joe Mama The title of the company's management and construction has been changed to "MAP", and it has been announced as the only Japanese song in flower history, with the Heavi rock arrangement unique to flowers. "Kyogen" is the rhythm section from Happenings to vocal Tome Kitagawa, another keyboard player Kuni Kawachi other than Shinohara, Chito Kawachi, Pepe Yoshihiro, and Joe from Flower added to Ishika Yes, Happnings won't appreciate Julian Coup's praise for the best guitar, including the best original songs and sound productions of the Kuni Kawachi, Joe's best singing and flower albums. Coop even calls "Kyogen" to the unheard rock classic.
 After that Happenings Four broke up in 1972 the complete progressive rock concept album “Tideshi, Koshi” 1971.8, which further promoted the de-GS route since “The world of outsiders”, and in the past, he broke up with Kuni. Leading to the formation of the transatam in the late 70's (Kuni Kawachi producer, Happenings Chito Kawachi, Tome Kitagawa, Shino Sugawara Hideki Ishima, late Sadistic Mika Band Goto Toshitoshi) in the form that members cooperate with solo of Kawachi Continues to family activities until now, even now recurrent formation reunion. Another keyboard player, Happenings Four, has become a member of the Flower Travelin Band, and the collaboration between the Happenings Four and the Flower Travelin Bands is so deep and long lasting that the Flower Replay of the 90's Joined after the evaluation, Joe Yamanaka introduced Sino Hagiwara as the "original member" at the stage MC. Flower leader Hideki Ishima respects the Kuni Kawachi, and it has been said that he has received musical advice since he co-starred. However, "Kyogen" recognized the appeal of Joe who sings in Japanese, but since it is a challenge to challenge English lyric rock in Ishima, it is a sound that integrates English words with instrumental more than "Kyogen" in Flower. Otherwise, I felt uncomfortable. 
Flower passed the whole album with English lyrics rock (The lyrics were provided by Yoko Narahashi, who wrote the song for Godaigo that was formed by Miki Yoshino of the former Golden Cups, provided by Yoko Nomura at the time), as the producer Yuya Uchida intended. Yuya Uchida seems to have recognized the results of "Kyogen" as the single song "MAP" was remade to the Flower's own version of "Kyogen". “Kyogen” received high acclaim for entering the best 5 in the Japanese rock category on the annual best album of New Music Magazine (now Music Magazine, renamed in the early 80's), which was the only rock magazine at the time. However, at that time New Music Magazine was the first Japanese rock section Nobuyasu Okabayashi "I hate me", and the second "Happiein" was the first place, and the album from the indies label URC, which is supported by the same magazine. However, since it was a Japanese-language rock that was contrary to the English-language verses rock that Uchida Yuya was promoting for international expansion, there was a conflict with journalists such as Toura Nakamura, who presides over New Music Magazine, and Ogura Oge. New Music Magazine encourages the fusion of disarmament folks and Japanese lyric rock, while Uchida resolutely opposed the encouraging direction of New Music Magazine. "Kyogen" was a few attempts by Yuya Uchida's Japanese Rock, along with the later debut of Brain Police. 
 The musical ideas and sound productions of the leader Ishikawa (Yuya Uchida) are compared when comparing Joe Yamanaka and Hideki Ishima's previous and next works with Flower Travelin band's "Kyogen" when they participated in "Kyogen" Is a patronly produced, and the sound respects the band's autonomy)) shows that it has made a big leap from the participation of "Kyogen" to "ORIGINAL SATORI." Ishima is the only album of the Beavers era 'Viva! Beavers had already performed a raga playing method of the guitar that surpassed Jeff Beck in the cover of Yardbirds in 1968.6, but Beavers debuted in the band found in Spiders and the single "First Love Hill" since 1967.7 as a member The original song was not adopted. Flower Travelin band debut album “Anywhere” 1970.10 All songs are still blues project, Black Sabbath, animals, cover of King Crimson, Sabbath and Crimson still major release in Japan but not yet released in Japan was. The debut single "Crash" has no clear direction yet, and it has remained in the song that the co-starring with Hino Isamu Quintet itself is all about achievements.
