Man, never heard of Food Brain, but hey, they sho nuff knows how to kick some ASS


FOOD BRAIN was formed by Shinki Chen - a charismatic Japanese guitarist and was a novel rock project by Polydor Japan. According to rumour the project was originally to be named Brain Food - but Shinki got it the wrong way round. Ikuzo Orita, a director of Polydor, had pictured some projects of Japanese progressive rock in his mind. To realise one of them, he persuaded Shinki to be the front man, and gathered some renowned Japanese musicians - Hiro Tsunoda (drums & percussion), Hiro Yanagida (keyboard & organ), Masayoshi Kabe (bass) - around him. Their only LP Social Gathering was the sunrise of Japanese psychedelic rock and paved way for the younger generation. Sadly their remarkable flexibility and technique couldn't prevent the project from breaking up after a short period. There have been many reissues since 1989, most of them official and all from the master tapes.
