Michio Kurihara Discography

If you have 'come upon this place by lost ways' and don't know who Michio Kurihara is, take a look at the interview originally published in Ptolemaic Terrascope #31 Winter 2001/2.

If you like the more melodic side of Kurihara's work, especially Há-Zá-Má, then you may also find the early Quicksilver Messenger Services albums featuring John Cipollina of interest. For information about John Cipollina, see my John Cipollina Discography.

These pages are based on Rob Lim's Discography (now available online at The Janitor from Mars at WFMU.) as printed in Ptolemaic Terrascope #31, the Discography on the "Song to the Siren" CD, and the Discography on Takeya Sekiguchi's Electric Cool Acid site, with additional details from my own collection.
