    Record Store Day exclusive limited edition 500 press on neon green heavyweight vinyl featuring big hitting remixes from James Lavelle's UNKLE, Gabe Gurnsey (Factory Floor), James Welsh (Phantasy Sound), Space Age Freak Out (John Paynter), and International Teachers of Pop (ERC / Moonlandingz) who add a whole new dimension to JTV's critically accalimedthird EP and a further RSD physical exclusive with JTV's remix of Internatianal Teachers Pop's Flood The Club (Themes Water Remix).

    3 (Remixed) is on vinyl for the first time especially for RSD and JTV say: During lockdown we thought it would be cool to create a remix project with artists we admire. We love collaborating. Itís exciting to have them reimagine our tracks say Japanese Television - who formed with a shared vision of creating a modern psych space-surf soundscape. Gabe Gurnsey add his trademark hard-hitting beats and minimalist synths to otherworldly psych single ëBee Cageí and has already had three plays from Lauren Laverne and two from Gideon Coe on 6 Music and the mix was made John Kennedy's 'X-Posture Hot One. A groove-laden treat, Gabe adds layers of astral beats to create something wholly other. We heard Gabe's remix for Working Men's Club and loved it, we're stoked he's on board. This is followed by James Lavelleís masterful UNKLE Reconstruction of Falling Spikes (the original was named as one Amy Lameís BBC 6 Music Favourite Tracks of 2020), which delivers the trademark eclectic UNKLE sound and twist. James is a living legend and as big fans it's an honour to have him remix, say JTV.

    With additional mixes from Space Age Freakout (we love the dirty Manchester electronic vibe), International Teachers of Pop (We're big fans of ITOP. Sheffield's finest); and James Welsh (Like Gabe we found James through Erol Elkan's Phantasy Sound label. He's delivered absolute dynamite), say JTV.Japanese Television surf on a swirling wave of reverb-drenched organ, garage-rock guitars, hypno-motorik bass and pounding, ritualistic drums.

    In 2020 the band released their five track EP III slice of motorik space twang. Preferring to work in a village hall deep in the wilds of the east British countryside, JTV again recorded live to an old 8 track machine with The Wytches Kristian Bell following the success of EPs I & II. The band has been played over 70 times on BBC 6 Music including a session with Marc Riley and have seen acclaim from the likes of NME, So Young, Clash, Arts Desk, WFUV in New York, and The Wire. Only Japanese Television are 100% space surf. Their cosmic glow remains extraordinary.

    Japanese Television

    III

      Japanese Television don’t surf, but if they did, it would be on a swirling wave of reverb-drenched organ, garage-rock guitars, hypno-motorik bass and pounding, ritualistic drums. The band formed in 2018 through a shared love of fuzz boxes, Joe Meek and UFOs and together they invented “Space Surf”. Upon discovering it already existed, they reinvented it. Taking the primal stomp of early garage bands and the wild, sonic wheeling of later psych oddballs, Japanese Television mix in strange, rare instruments and homemade effects pedals to create something as alluring as it is unique.

      On September 4th they will release their brand new 5 track slice of motorik space twang, once again partnering with Chicago label Tip Top Recordings. Preferring to work in a cold, dusty, village hall somewhere deep in the wilds of the east British countryside, Japanese Television once again recorded live to an old 8 track machine with The Wytches’ Kristian Bell following the success of EPs I & II which both sold out first and second pressings immediately. EP III kicks off with the otherworldly psychedelia of lead single ‘Bee Cage’, an expansive, groove-laden astral treat that encapsulates the bands rhythmic jams and dramatically sets the tone for the full release.

      Follow-up’s ‘Martian Soup’ and ‘Falling Spikes’ lean into their more slacker, laid-back noise-outs but at no point do they relent. ‘Hot Sauce’, an immersive live favourite, revels in its own delirium before closer ‘Moon Glider’ sees us off with intoxicating headiness. Their 2019 Marc Riley BBC 6 Music Session spread their cosmic, beachy gospel far and wide and they also made ‘Best of the Year’ lists by the likes of Gideon Coe and Amy Lam. They sold out shows across the UK on their last two tours, along with highly-billed festival appearances across the UK & Europe, including Lewes Psych Festival and Rotterdam’s Left of the Dial. JTV are growing and changing, but their cosmic glow remains as extraordinary as ever. Only Japanese Television are 100% Space Surf.
