An exclusive live album by DRUGON, formed by Mani Neumeier, the leader of one of the most important Krautrock bands, Guru Guru, limited to only 300 copies. This album was recorded at Umejima Yukotopia in Tokyo, Japan, on 12 February 2005 and is the first ever release from DRUGON. The gig on the day consisted of 3 parts, tracks 1-3 in the first part was performed live by DRUGON, track 4 in the second part was performed solo by Mani Neumeier and tracks 5-8 in the third part was performed live again by DRUGON. The drumming containing delicacy and dynamics at the same time that has been accumulated for more than a 40-year career, the guitar producing roars and colourful tones, with the bass providing the stability and minimalism. The incidental, but also, inevitable psychedelia created by the harmonisation of those. ///Tracklist/// 1. Drug On 2. Next Time See You At The Dalai Lama 3. Dragon's Dream 4. Around The World -Percussion Solo- 5. Da-Ga-La-Do 6. Barbarian 7. Mani-San Beat 8. Dragon Waltz ///Biography/// DRUGON are a psychedelic rock band composed by Mani Neumeier, the leader of one of the most important Krautrock bands, Guru Guru, and a member of Acid Mothers Guru Guru, as a drummer, Mandog’s Keiichi Miyashita, a guitarist of Damo Suzuki (ex. Can) and a member of Godman, which was formed by Makoto Kawabata (Acid Mothers Temple), as a guitarist, and Takayuki Enomoto, a former member of Mandog, as a bassist. In 2004, Miyashita and Enomoto joined Mani Neumeier’s Japan tour after they were asked by the promoter of the tour, Captain Trip Records. After that, Neumeier asked them to play live together again as a result of performing well while on tour, leading them to form DRUGON. They performed live at several places including Tokyo Tower’s Wax Museum, which was popular for its impressive collection of Krautrock waxworks including Mani Neumeier, himself. In March 2014, during Mani Neumeier’s Japan tour, DRUGON resumed being active for the first time in 9 years to prepare for this first ever release.
