Two weeks ago I posted part 3 of the hippie noise MP3 identification contest, and I am sorry to say that nobody won the big prize. It is now time to give away the solution. The band was a duo from Japan called Tolerance, and the track was Voyage au bout de la nuit from their first LP Anonym, recorded in 1979, released 1980 on Vanity Records. This album has been posted in an incomplete version on the (excellent) Direct Waves blog, so I thought it would be a good idea to repost it here in its entirety.
While this LP is impossible to find, their second album Divin was reissued (again on vinyl) and might still be available. You can get a bit more info on Tolerance, listen to an excerpt of Divin, and probably still order the vinyl at Mimaroglu Music.
Part 4 of the MP3 identification contest is still open for another week. The solution has something in common with the Tolerance album, but that is all I can tell you.
