PAIKAPPU were formed in the early 1970s around Tsutsui Brothers - Takayuki (guitar, koto) and Tetsushi (drums, wadaiko, fue).
They might appear on stage under the name of AIRS.
After changing their band name from AIRS to PAIKAPPU,
they released one and only eponymous cassette album
in 1984 and disappeared unnoticed.
Mauro Moroni, the owner of Italian independent label Mellow Records, was very amazed at this unknown cassette album
and made a reissue of it as a CD for Mellow Records
... with his comment...
"We really think that it deserves to be heard by a wider audience".
