Just Go Destroy Everything In Sight!
A collection of current
japanese rock, garage and punk.
Japanese rockīn roll has
always been welcome in my house. Man, Iīve had some good,
good times listening to Teengenerate, Phantom
Rats, Guitar Wolf and Supersnazz! Itīs something about
those bandsī extremely high energy level and
their dedication to their heroes, that really amazes me. Besides those
bands, Iīm not too familiar with the japanese
scene. This compilation is released this year, and is a varied selection
of todays scene. First band out, The Have
Nots, is pretty close to the Phantom Rats/Teengenerate wild rockīn roll
sound, and definitely one of my favourites
here. Others I really enjoy are the party-stompinī rock-a-billy of
Google-A, Green Day-ish power-pop with Naked, and a great cover of Radio
Birdmanīs New Race by The Gimmies. Thereīs a couple of hardcore bands, a
little oi! and some weird computerized
garage-stuff here too, so itīs not the most coherent compilation Iīve
heard. But well worth your time īcause of the cool
Ps: This was written some weeks ago, but due to technical difficulties, itīs a bit delayed. Sorry!
