Desk Top Hard Lock


Desk Top Hard Lock is the first studio album by Phnonopenh MODEL and the first solo album by Hikaru Kotobuki.

The band was formed to participate in the Errors of P-MANIA! copy band contest, where they performed the song "Be in a Fix" (from the album Perspective) while sampling "Immigrant Song", among the other members there was the cross-dressing Lion Merry (formerly of Yapoos, Metrofarce, Virgin VS) and Shonen Maruta (formerly of Ikiru), both members of the band echo-U-nite.

It mixes the electronic sounds used by Kotobuki on the "Defrosted" era of P-Model with ethnic sounds inspired by his travels through the world and the overall mood is marked by Kotobukii's peculiar sense of humor; it also features some sound alteration that Kotobuki would explore in later releases.

After this album was released, Kotobuki sold all his musical instruments and travelled through Asia, which left Phnonpenh MODEL inactive until 1997.
