Sonic Flower‘s 2022 album ‘Me And My Bellbottom Blues‘ is full of ‘70s feelings. It‘s heavy but with more bluesy taste than ever. New guitarist Fumiya Hattori is a young bluesman. He uses slide bar and acoustic guitar too. His guitar style‘s width is huge. Regarding song writing, of course Tatsu Mikami wrote the songs as always. Not only heavy but also with a ‘down to earth‘ feeling. You can also enjoy tons of RIFF by this riff master. New drummer Toshiaki Umemura makes a heavy and groovy sound. Most different from the previous album is Sonic Flower got a singer on this album. Kazuhiro Asaeda is the original Church Of Misery singer, he sang on their early release ‘Vol. 1.‘ Tatsu made a tag team with him again and and the result is really amazing. Recorded in Tokyo in early 2022. Mixed by Japanese doom guru Yukito Okazaki (his band Eternal Elysium was founded in 1991... it‘s older than Church of Misery).
