Contrary to what the Discogs profile says, Lost Aaraaf was formed out of a piano/drums duo between Akira Asami and Shime Takahashi in 1969, so I believe the unidentified pianist is Akira Asami.

Despite Keiji Haino being credited as a guitarist, I don't hear any guitar on here at all. I do hear a bassist though, which is likely to be 富岳良夫 (I think it is read Yoshio Tomioka, I couldn't find a resource to tell me the reading), who joined the group along with Haino some time in 1970.

A large portion of the second track can be heard on Various - Electric Pure Land Stars, which gives the recording date as not 1970, but January 26 1974 at Sugino Kodo, Meguro.

Recorded in the '70s, it is less rock than Fushitsusha, and it is rather free jazz. There's piano, perhaps is it Haino himself because he is mostly doing voice and not so much guitar. Still, it is high powered, He almost always saturates the vocal mic, and it makes larsens mic voluntary at the begining, perhaps less in the end.
