NOTES

  • Andrei Rikishi “Player Name: The Syracuse Apostle” from Caged Birds Think Flying Is A Sickness (Bearsuit) –  a 14-track album clocking in at a colossal 27.40 minutes… Rikichi – the son of a Tokyo born father and Bucharest born mother – was brought up in Switzerland and Belgium (a consequence of his father’s diplomatic work) – and is now based in London having just completed a BA (Hons) degree in Exploding Furniture and Biscuit Folding. He is a multi-instrumentalist (though specializes on the 3-string-zither-pipe) and has previously played in numerous musical groups including the Belgian collective, The Unaccountable Red Mist Orchestra. He enjoys knitting seahorses and eating pickles. This is his first outing as a solo artist… see also Eamon The Destroyer, Harold Nono, Bunny & The Invalid Singers… amongst others!
