Majutsu no Niwa is psychedelic rock band which Rinji Fukuoka of OVERHANG PARTY 

Aoki Tomoyuki is mostly known as the guitarist & vocalist of  Up-Tight (Alchemy records, 8mm) and for more than 2 decades he has been behind some albums  which mix plaintive echo-drenched imprecations, love of bitter-sweet folk and blissfully nihilistic guitar noise reminiscent of Les Rallizes Denudes and Mizutani’s velvetian ballads.

 Harutaka Mochizuki is a multi-instrumentalist, mostly known for his saxophone improvisations recalling other lonely satellites and solo thinkers like Masayoshi Urabe, Arthur Doyle, Anthony Braxton and Kaoru Abe. Aoki and Harutaka have been recording together for a couple of years and this is their first new collaboration after a remarkable self-released CD that saw the light in 2014.  Terribly human, passionate and intense, their association is just one of the most inspiring and burning free unit since the apex of the P.S.F era.
