Listen to SATORI PART II by Flower Travellin' Band.

You would think our first trip to Japan would be led by Amy (she's been working on a little J-Pop series for awhile now), but no it's me.

The Flower Travellin' Band are well known in certain circles for their heavy riffing and portentous, OTT vocals. Apparently they also recorded the first known Black Sabbath cover, which tells you a lot. Here's a little footage of the band at their last show: pretty cool.

Today's song is the second track (of five) of the group's best known album, "Satori," released in 1971. This music is a little too prog to be perfectly Dumb, but I've included it for its sheer ridiculous heaviness.
