Now finally, the great "Music Exist"-series by Tokyo-based duo the Tenniscoats is completed. This is all 5 volumes in a heavy cardboard box, beautifully screenprinted and hand-numbered. In 12 different colour-combinations. Inside you'll find an extra-LP of bonus-tracks and alternative versions. This is a major work from the group that some of us consider the greatest of the 21st century. There are heartbreaking songs, beautifully arranged with acoustic guitar, melodica, psychedelic keyboards and sound experiments. Also included is a A3-Poster with a drawing by Ueno not used within the previous album-artworks.

Tenniscoats have devoted followers allover the world, but their releases were always hard to find outside of Japan. Except for their album "Tokinouta", which saw a very limited run on vinyl, and the seminal "Two Sunsets", their collaboration with the Pastels (and a small handful of 7"s), there were never any vinyl-releases, and also the CDs were hard to get for anyone, who doesn't speak or read Japanese.

So, this is the chance to dive deep into the beautiful, unique world of the Tenniscoats and their opus magnum "music exists".
