He did a rather good Chinese Dub album a couple of years ago, so why not collect the set? How does it sound? How do you think it sounds?

It sounds like Japanese music given the Wobblesome dub treatment: spacious, slow, percussive, twangy, solemn, modal, Japanese: more melodic than you might expect, less alien than you might think. Wood and gut sounds ride the bass swell and cherry blossom breaks out all over. Plus flutes. Not a cut-and-paste job but real English and Japanese musicians getting it on.
