Dub band Fishmans will celebrate their 30th anniversary with the reissue of their first three albums in vinyl format on August 4th.
Chappie, Don’t Cry and King Master George, originally released in 1991 and 1992 respectively, will be remastered by famous engineer KIMKEN, while 1993 album Neo Yankees’ Holiday will be remastered by producer and sound engineer zAk, known for helping to create Fishmans’ distinctive sound. The three albums will be pressed on 180-gram vinyl with high-resolution audio.
Formed in summer 1987 in Tokyo by singer Shinji Sato, drummer Kin-ichi Motegi and guitarist Kensuke Ojima, Fishmans created dub and rocksteady pieces. Their music morphed and evolved to incorporate influences from rock, funk and hip-hop, offering a very unique experience to their listeners. The band ceased their activities in 1999 with the passing of Shinji Sato. Fishmans’ music gained in popularity in the last few years, to the point that a crowdfunded 172-minute documentary about the bands’ history, titled "Movie: Fishmans", was theatrically released in Japan on July 9th.
The trailer for "Movie: Fishmans" can be watched below.
