Portray Heads is a three-piece electric band formed in Matsuyama. This is flexi-disc single recorded by the first vocalist Ayumi Tokunaga and released from Kageroh Record in Osaka. Included on the A-side is the dark electric wave "Elaborate Dummy" and on the B-side is electric minimal wave "Watch Your Scope!". Although their activity was short-lived, the quality of their music was outstanding even at that time, as evidenced by the reissue from Minimal Wave in 2020, which included previously unreleased tracks. A gem left in the Japanese underground scene. It has been in stock for a long time. Great texture including the cover.

松山で結成された三人組エレクトリック・バンドPortray Heads。本作は初代ヴォーカルAyumi Tokunagaの際に録音され、大阪のかげろうレコードからリリースされたソノシート・シングル。A面にはダーク・エレクトリック・ウェーブ”Elaborate Dummy”、B面には疾走感のあるミニマル・ウェーブ”Watch Your Scope!”を収録。その活動期間は短かったものの、20年にMinimal Waveからの未発表音源含む再発盤でも当時からそのクオリティは傑出していたものだとわかります。日本のアンダーグラウンドシーンに刻まれた宝石のような一枚。久々に入荷できました。ジャケ含め素晴らしい質感です。少しピッチを落としたプレイもレコメンド。

A - Elaborate Dummy

B - Watch Your Scope!
