Dema - Album Review
DEMA (Columbia, 1972)
After a cosmic intro, the dueling ensembles (Garan-doh and the Kohsuke Ichihara All Stars) settle into a "Bitches Brew" styled workout. Then, in the last ten minutes or so of the album, searing synths bring us to realms akin to Weidorje or "De Futura" styled zeuhl, albeit with a jazz pulse instead of zeuhl's rock meters. Strangely, the piece is abruptly cut off before a natural climax is reached, replaced by a pasted-on distorted sputter, followed by a cosmic outro.

Note that the CD reissue at least lists the artist not as "Dema" but as

Tsutsui, Yasutaka / Ichihara, Kohsuke / Satoh, Masahiko

and the release date as 1973, not 1972.

Datetenryu - Comments
Album mistitling.
I was looking into the book's recommendation of Datetenryu's album "Unto 1971" (apparently called "Unto" in the bio above) and as far as I can tell this is a conflation of the titles of two albums, as can be seen, for example, on the official website linked to above by choan.

The "1971" CD is on the Dragon Freek label and is undoubtedly what is being discussed in the bio above, while "Unto" consists of recordings from 1975 to 1982 and came out on the Belle Antique label.
