I'm going to see them this week. Who's heard of them? What can I expect?
It's not quite my cup of tea but I've got friends who love them and I can completely see why.
They're a *great* live band.
are one of the best bands around for me.
The most exciting band in London of last year. Right now they are debuting some new songs from their upcoming album so not as much crazyness as some people have come to expect.
Nonetheless amazing! :)
if you dig lazy comparisons: kinda like a more fun, punk rock sounding version of loads of great jap psych/experimental type stuff: flower travellin' band, boredoms etc. REALLY great live band. so much fun when I saw them last.
at the gig tomorrow I'm DJing! Forgot about that
they tore chunks out of Cafe Oto in April despite the fact that it's not really that kind of place, so if you get to see them in some darkened sweaty bar they'll be immense. Trippy, fuzzed out and very loud riff-based rock for the most part, but pretty unpredictable too (when I saw them, various members acted as their own support and Taigen played a pretty immense Merzbow-esque electronic noise/bass guitar set).
And it ended in absolute carnage, even moreso than ...Trail Of Dead in their day.
Skinny with lots of hair.
sounds exciting. Looking forward to seeing some skinny long haired Japanese loud music!
I'm going to The Relentless Energy Sessions tonight to see them. Anyone else going?
And they were rather amazing.
at Garage tonight. Little Death are good band too, not sure bout Japenese Voyoers though not that great!
