Japanese Television | III Remixed - RSD21
Record Store Day exclusive limited edition of 500 press on Fresh Green heavyweight vinyl featuring big hitting remixes from James Lavelle's UNKLE, Gabe Gurnsey (Factory Floor), James Welsh (Phantasy Sound), Space Age Freak Out (John Paynter), and International Teachers of Pop (ERC / Moonlandingz) who add a whole new dimension to JTV's critically accalimed third EP and a further RSD physical exclusive with JTV's remix of Internatianal Teachers Pop's Flood The Club (Themes Water Remix).
3 (Remixed) is on vinyl for the first time especially for RSD and JTV say: "During lockdown we thought it would be cool to create a remix project with artists we admire. We love collaborating. It's exciting to have them reimagine our tracks" say Japanese Television - who formed with a shared vision of creating a modern psych space-surf soundscape.
Japanese Television surf on a swirling wave of reverb-drenched organ, garage-rock guitars, hypno-motorik bass and pounding, ritualistic drums. In 2020 the band released their five track EP III slice of motorik space twang. Preferring to work in a village hall deep in the wilds of the east British countryside, JTV again recorded live to an old 8 track machine with The Wytches' Kristian Bell following the success of EPs I & II.
The band has been played over 70 times on BBC 6 Music including a session with Marc Riley and have seen acclaim from the likes of NME, So Young, Clash, Arts Desk, WFUV in New York, and The Wire. Only Japanese Television are 100% space surf. Their cosmic glow remains extraordinary.
