Officially licensed from Irwin Chusid of the SUN RA estate, Cold Spring’s Justin Mitchell negotiated rare and unreleased tracks from the SUN RA archive to be remixed and treated by Masami Akita. The tracks incorporate the jazz power of SUN RA, carried into brutal excess by the legendary Japanese artist, MERZBOW.

This release is available in two distinct editions: limited 180gm green vinyl with download code – and a matt laminated digipak CD. Please note that both formats have completely different music!

Free release stickers when purchased directly from Cold Spring!
