Description

Takeshi Terauchi was the main man behind the mid ’60s Eleki (electric guitar) boom. A powerhouse of guitar pyrotechnics with an understanding of the circuit board; he made his own echo machines and the first Japanese-made PA system. With his two groups, the Blue Jeans and the Bunnys, he led the field and still plays today. The album Nippon Guitars is a sample of his huge catalogue, mainly focusing on hard-edged surf, adapted versions of traditional Japanese folk songs and ’60s Japanese pop grooves. For beat scavengers there are breaks, backed with melodies in the Japanese pentatonic scale.
