Machine and the Synergetic Nuts - Leap Second Neutral. 2005 Japan

One of the three great Japanese progressive bands of the 2000's including Pochakaite Malko and Naikaku. Influenced by the Canterbury scene of the late 1970s (National Health, The Muffins), heavy 90s Japanese instrumental progressive rock like Happy Family and Bondage Fruit along with a distinct taste for modern jazz like St. Germain. Complex, energetic and highly melodic. Band lists Soft Machine, Weather Report and Frank Zappa as influences.
