Flower Travellin' Band are an esoteric Japanese psychedelic rock / heavy metal outfit from Tokyo that was first active from 1969 and early 1970s until 1973, consisting of Akira "Joe" Yamanaka (vocals), Hideki Ishima (guitar), Joji "George" Wada (drums) and Jun Kozuki (bass). As of January 12th, 2008 they have officially reunited.

The band was initially organized by Japanese entertainer and entrepreneur Yuya Uchida as The Flowers, a cover band, and featured two vocalists - male vocalist Yuya Uchida, and female vocalist Remi Aso, who was touted as the Japanese version of Janis Joplin. Their first album consisted of covers of Western pop songs. It was primarily notable for the fact that all of the band members appeared nude on the cover, including Aso, which was considered scandalous at the time. However, after the "Flowers" album, Uchida lost interest and Aso drifted away.

siLLy puPPy
FLOWER TRAVELLIN' BAND is a Japanese heavy psych band from Tokyo that were connected to the counterculture movement. SATORI is their second album but the their first to contain all original material. Despite not selling very many albums in their day the group gained a large cult following over the decades mostly due to this album which blends a mix of Black Sabbath inspired doom metal with the fuzz guitar of Blue Cheer and some Hendrix sounding guitar riffs and leads. That describes the tones and inspirations for the parts but the sum of the parts that creates the music itself reminds me more of Krautrock guitar oriented jams. This early mix of metal with progressive and psychedelic rock is a real treat because it is simultaneously rockin', bluesy, spacey and tripped-out.

The thing that really stands out is that FTB seemed obsessed with everything Western and incorporated few Japanese sounds into their mix. The only thing I can discern is the occasional gong and a few scales that sound Eastern-tinged at times. For the most part this will remind you of the 60s drugged out hippie bands that emerged from the LSD culture. There are monotonous bass riffs, tripped-out echoed guitars and full-on freakouts but the sound is heavy and the contrast between the hard rock and the psychedelic ways in which they play it is what makes this sound so different from everyone else of the day. I agree with the hype surrounding this album but it falls short of a long lost masterpiece for me however it is a very well played album that will keep your interest throughout its entire run.
