hideka & The Pristines (ヒデカアンドザプリスティーンズ)

hideka & The PristinesThe Pristinesはイギリス・コヴェントリー出身のLo-Fiシューゲイズバンド。雑誌などを通じて評判になり1990年代の半ばごろから続々とアルバムをリリースし始めた。レーベルも Pillarbox Red (UK)、Elefant Records (スペイン)、A Turntable Friend (ドイツ)、Meller Weller Produkte (ドイツ)と数多く、1995年には Sunday Records (US)から名盤「Teen-Fraud, Pop-Whore (part one) 」をリリースした。
その後、2000年代前半に3枚のアルバムを自主制作したが、再びCloudberry Records (US)、Series Two (US)、Susy Records (ペルー)等に所属、2007年以降はドイツのEdition 59に移籍したが、2008年には Series Twoから5枚目のアルバム「States of Mine」を発表。

ちょうどその時期、The Pristinesは日本のシューゲイザーの先駆け「hideka」の曲に出会う。hidekaがリミックスとリマスタリングした初期The Pristinesの曲「Sea Horse」を聴き、お互いのサウンドに惹かれあっていることに気付き2009年にコラボレーションを決意。その成果がアルバムとして2010年5月にリリースされる。その名も「Mayflower」。

The Pristines are a cult indie lo-fi psychedelic shoegaze band from Coventry, England.
After being part of the fanzine scene they began releasing records in the mid 90s for labels such as Pillarbox Red (UK), Elefant Records (Spa), A Turntable Friend (Ger) , Meller Welle Produkte (Ger) and Sunday (US), culminating in the 1995 album “Teen-Fraud, Pop-Whore (part one)” released on Sunday Records.
They later recorded 3 self-released albums in the early 2000s before returning to label releases with the likes of Cloudberry Records (US), Series Two (US), Susy Records (Peru), and Edition 59 (Ger) from 2007 onwards, with a 5th album “States of Mine” released on Series Two in 2008.

It was during this time that the band encountered the work of Japanese shoegaze artist hideka, who first remixed and remastered one of their earlier songs “Sea Horse”.
Liking each other’s material, hideka & The Pristines decided to collaborate on an album in 2009 to be released this May 2010, and to be called aptly “Mayflower”.

A meeting of East & West, the two styles of music both contrast as well as complement each other. The songs recorded by emailing music files thousands of miles between the UK & Japan!
