Last Terminus takes Pfeuti one step further towards capturing the live sound they have honed through many years of steady shows in and around Tokyo. Captured in the studio by Minoru Yokoo (engineer with the Jon Spenser Blues Explosion), the band was recorded all together in one room for a intimate portrait of the Pfeuti sound. From the electonica-fused punk of 'Onsen Song' to the languid desert themes of 'Threshold', every forgotten corner of this unique musical landscape is explored and rediscovered. Ethiopian soul-funk meets Henry Mancini by way of the Lounge Lizards in a bare-bones performance that draws on an array of influences to present a new picture of post-jazz. About Pfeuti First forming in 1997, Pfeuti is an accidental post jazz/post rock project from Tokyo, Japan. The influences of the four core members range from free jazz, dub, noise and electronica to punk, exotica and movie soundtracks, which lay the foundation for the Pfeuti sound. Pfeuti has collaborated on a number of films to date, providing the electronica-flavoured soundtrack for sur|FACE (2001), an intimate documentary investigating the lives of 14 of Japan's major architects, as well as music for the Canadian independant movie Free (2002). In addition to the sur|FACE soundtrack, the group have released several albums of music that capture their live sound as a quartet. Pigeon Post (released by Pickin' Mushroom' in Japan and Oh!Tonito in North America) and Last Terminus (released on the soundispatch imprint in 2006) were recorded live in studios in and around the Tokyo area. Subsequent 12' remixes of Pigeon Post (released on Pickin' Mushroom) were provided by Takayuki Shiraishi and Thomas Fehlmann from the Orb.
