Shinobu Narita, a multi-instrumentalist from Kyoto, also known for his work with 4D/Urban Tribe, released a flexi-disc only single in 1984, one of his peak years. On A side Ceramic Love” new wave/synth pop tune with various emotions swirling in the shimmering light as if all his inner aesthetics had come together. He have replayed it in Urban Tribe, of course it's not bad, but honestly it's not at all like this version. The B-side is also a high quality industrial minimalist track. We don't think there are many singles in the Japanese scene that are as complete as this one. This 8inch appearance look is always in love.

4D/Urban Tribeでの活動でも知られる京都出身のマルチミュージシャン成田忍がピーク期のひとつに当る84年にリリースしたソノシートオンリーシングル。A面に収録の”Ceramic Love” 彼の内に秘めた美意識が全て結集したような煌めきの中で様々な感情が渦巻くようなNew wave/Synth popチューン。Urban Tribeでの再演も勿論悪くはないですが正直このヴァージョンが完璧です。B面もクオリティの高いインダストリアル・ミニマル風トラックを収録。この8インチの体裁はいつ見ても惚れ惚れします。
