Mark Fry (acoustic set)

Mark Fry was just a 19-year-old art student when he recorded Dreaming With Alice in 1972, a psych-folk opus that went on to achieve cult-classic status while its creator drifted into obscurity. Like his contemporary Vashti Bunyan, Fry (who's also a prolific visual artist) has been enjoying a career revival in the past few years: a reissue of his debut in 2006 was followed by a pair of well-received new albums, Shooting the Moon and I Lived in Trees, with another record due later this year. After playing two evenings with a full band at Kichijoji's Mandala 2, he wraps up his first trip to Tokyo with an acoustic set at UFO Club, featuring appropriately psychedelic support from Katsurei and the Ai Aso Group.
