His modified guitar in a Twin Cities’ trio with Milo Fine (drums, clarinet, prepared piano remains, voice) and Davu Seru (drums). A handful pressed.

The 1970 album debut of the twenty-year old Kentuckian: ‘a singularly enchanted album of unhurried, low key loner ballads’. If you like Townes Van Zandt, check it out. Everything well done as usual by Locust.

‘A beautiful gem featuring eight freewheeling unaccompanied six and twelve string guitar pieces.’

‘Part Hindustani inflected musical miasma and part warped hillbilly vibrational swing that sways in and out of auditory focus. This is vertiginous music for the third ear.’ With C.C. Hennix.

‘Call it late night head music or even call it ecstatic Minimalism if you have to… our man Flynt takes his electrified fiddle and blends his droning sonic calisthenics with lonesome swing melodies and high decibel screech’.

Finally — with its guitar-less Elektronika Demonika soundtrack on CD. ‘Diabolical… a phantasmagoric presentation of demonic and divine imagery to put the viewer into an altered state of darkened awareness.’

Lovely. Classical songs by such exemplars as Schubert and Schumann, re-imagined with heart and soul as bare, doleful folk. Just voice and electric guitar.

Their debut harking back to the classic folk-rock of Pentangle, The Trees, Mellow Candle — with nowadays Philadelphia adding a nice edge of modern, dark moodines.

Not for the faint-hearted — dark and dirty psych improv from Chie Mukai, Eric Cordier and Seichi Yamamoto (Boredoms). Moody, subterranean squalls and drones, blowing up like a bad-tempered Fushitsusha.
