Bio / info
Happy Family are a Japanese instrumental quartet formed in 1987 who released two albums. The eponymous (1995) first saw them adopt a zeuhlesque sound that calls to mind Eider Stellaire, but which dabbles in avant-garde progressive rock as well. Influences ranged from Magma to Univers Zero, with eclectic, furious passages that may sound similar to King Crimson or Frank Zappa. The band reunited in 2013.
