MIENAKUNARU: Strato Arcology Coloured Vinyl - Smoky Green/Black LP
Riot Season (UK & EU) and Echodelick Records (USA) present the third installment from the power trio Mienakunaru. Two compositions of noise rock, psychedelia, improvisation and experimentation. Inspired by strato-scraper arcologies and living within a post-nuclear megalopolis. Mienakunaru create a space punk soundscape that captures the zeitgeist of a future dystopian world!
Blistering improvised in one take free-form feedback guitars from legendary Junzo Suzuki. Two compositions of noise rock, psychedelia, improvisation and experimentation. Inspired by strato-scraper arcologies and living within a post-nuclear megalopolis.
In early February 2022, Junzo fell from a train platform in Tokyo and was rendered unconscious. Junzo suffered intracerebral hemorrhage and subarachnoid hemorrhage. He regained consciousness about nine days later and was moved to a rehabilitation hospital several weeks after weloveyoujunzo.bandcamp.com All proceeds from the above compilation go towards Junzos rehabilitation.
Utech Records and UK artist and printmaker Simon Fowler have teamed up to offer a limited edition art print. This print is our way of honoring Suzuki Junzo and his music. Utech Records will donate all profits from the sale of the print to Junzo's recovery.

'Mienakunaru plays explosive and addictive dope music!’ (Merchants Of Air)
‘earth-shaking, hypnotic trip through ochre skies, dusted with purple clouds above a sand scorched prairie. Evocative, psychedelic soloing moves in and out of view, like a wind swirling throughout this sonic odyssey’ (The Sleeping Shaman).
