PSF Records founder Hideo Ikeezumi RIP

One of the greatest record labels of all time, PSF Records, lost its irreplaceable founder,Hideo Ikeezumi.

Without him, I would not have discovered the world filled with Keiji Haino/Fushitsusha/Nijiumu/Aihiyo, High Rise/Musica Transonic, Acid Mothers Temple, Kaoru Abe, Masayuki Takayanagi, Ghost, Gaseneta, Kan Mikami, & so many more.

Went to PSF Record Shop in 2012. Tucked in a old building, knocking on the door before I was let in. It's like a door through a secret pathway to a cosy club away from the big bad world out there. But the big bad world got to it though, barely a year later.

Junko, by the way, was in the shop when I was there. Still remember what I bought there and Hideo gave me a bit of discount. Though we could not really communicate much with his limited spoken English and my even more little Japanese.
