George Orwell's "1984" depicts the horrors of a near-future world. This cassette book records the ”expressions” of critic Akira Asada and Dr. Umezu Band in an attempt to look at 1984, a turbulent time on the eve of the bubble after passing through the New Academia boom and postmodernism, from the inside and outside. On the musical side, the book contains approximately 60 minutes of performances that took place in cemeteries, train stations, riverbanks, warehouses, and waste disposal sites, in an attempt to capture the environment of 1984 as it was in that year. Akira Asada also reads the period from various angles. Incidentally, the book has the same title as Haruki Murakami's book, there seems to be a lot of rumors between Asada and Murakami from 80's. Rare.

近未来世界の恐怖を描いたジョージ・オーウェルの”1984”。ニューアカブームやポストモダニズムを通過し、奇しくもバブル前夜の激動の時代となった1984年を内側と外側から見てみようという試みから批評家 浅田彰とドクトル梅津バンドの両名による”表現”を記録したカセットブック。音楽面では1984年の環境をそのまま入れてしまおうと墓地、駅構内、河原、倉庫、ごみ処理場にて行われたパフォーマンスを約60分収録。浅田彰も様々な角度からその時代を読み取っています(結構難しい、、)。ちなみに村上春樹の著書と同タイトルですが浅田と村上の間には色々と噂めいたものがあるとかないとか。
