Tokyo Flashback is one of the most iconic compilations in the history of underground music. Originally released by Japans P.S.F.

The compilation features some of the earliest released recordings by Keiji Haino High Rise Masaki Batohs Ghost White Heaven Fushitsusha Kousokuya and Marble Sheep. It captures the excitement and energy of a Tokyo awash in Technicolor and deep blacks the music echoing krautrock psychedelic freak-outs garage and no wave. At the same time it reveals astonishing totally idiosyncratic expansions of rock music. In time Tokyo Flashback expanded to a synonymous nine volume series that over the following two decades unveiled Japans ever evolving soundscapes to the rest of the world.
