Byouki Masanori's (Sick Masanori) entertaining and unpredictable live shows have made him a bit of a legend on the local Osaka underground scene and evn counts the likes of Afrirampo and LSD March amongst his fans. Masanori makes silly and catchy as hell punk and anthemic folk songs. Sadly the amusing lyrics will be lost in translation to most but you'll no doubt find yourself singing along to songs about the wonderful smells women produce and the benefits of shampoo. The last solo performance I saw by him he refused to use a microphone and continued to "play" half his set accapella style mimicking the sound of the non-existant band and dancing around in his usual distinctive and amusing style. This is his second self-released CDR made up of an impressive 21 tracks and is a bargain at only 300 yen. Although in his usual mischevious manner only 11 of them are numbered in the liner notes.
