バンド創世期

1983年、リーダーの古江が物心つく前から母親に聴かされた日本的な琴の旋律、彼の地元の祭り 『小倉・祇園太鼓』で 身体に染み付いた和太鼓の「間」をロックと自然に融合させるため、「絶対無」を結成。 自分に無理のない、自然でオリジナルなサウンドを自らのロック作品に追求し始める。

 

1989年、ファーストアルバム『うちの婆様が言うには』(LP)をリリース。日本らしい短音階をベースライン、 ギターのリフに使うなど、日本人の陰の感性をテーマとした。
レコ発ライヴの対バンは、今は亡き 「成田弥宇」 氏がリーダーの伝説バンド "LIBIDO" 。成田氏に絶賛、 励まされ、都内にてライヴ活動を続ける。

また、音楽評論家の 「渋谷陽一」 氏に 『日本の土着ロックを目指すユニークな新人グループ』 と評される。

1991年、ライヴ・レコーディング『絶対無 ライヴ!』(カセット)をリリース。
