ODOM    1       BE-2 : MINIMUM UNIT OF HUMAN EXISTENCE                  LP      06.2019

Be-2 was the brainchild of cosmic rock guitarist Zen Oikawa and Psycho. The band
released two flexi discs and a cassette on Oikawa's Inner Space Records in the early
'80s. Prior to that, Oikawa ran a cosmic rock band called Space Mandala, Be-2 was his
merging of that style with the new wave moves of the early '80s. Since then, he has
been music director for projects for anime giants Studio Ghibli, contributing to the
soundtracks of 'Kurenai no Butta' ('Porco Rosso') and 'Omohide Poro Poro' ('Only
Yesterday'). 'Minimum Unit Of Human Existence' was composed between 1982 and 1984.
It's available on vinyl for first time, and features unreleased tracks. A blend of
of proto-techno, noise, ambient, channelling Manuel Göttsching, Ashra Temple, Klaus
Schulze, and The Durutti Column.
