Nobuhiro Yamashita chasing the undead

めちゃ怖 vol.2/恐怖!「心霊スポット十連発」
Mecha Kowa Vol.2 Kyufu! Shinrei Supot 10 Renpatsu

A "documentary" by Yamashita, starring himself, and produced for an outlet of the japanaese AV-giant Soft on Demand. It's part two of the series Mecha kowa.

And while I'm at it, this comes directly from a source very closely associated with Yamashita:
His next or one of his next projects could be a serious film about student insurgencies (Zengakuren?).

Also, check Mikkovisto. He put up some information about the lesser known Yamashita movies.

Testpattern - Après midi (1982)

Testpattern are Masao Hiruma (比留間雅夫) and Fumio Ichimura (市村文夫).
Après Midi is their only album and was released on Yukihiro Takahashi's and Hauromi Hosono's
YEN Records. There's hardly any info on what they've been up to ever since.
A shame.
