For the past seven years Brooklyn’s Japanther have baffled unsuspecting audiences and steadily grown their cult following. They’ve lived out of a van all over Europe, Australia, Canada and the US, circling the international underground like hungry wolves. All the while screaming through yellow pay-phone mics, self-releasing and self producing in keeping with the "art project" persona the group was founded on in 2001.
On their latest effort, Tut Tut Now Shake Ya Butt, legendary Crass poet and drummer Penny Rimbaud performed the executive producer role along side engineer and producer Aron Sanchez at Zero Mass in Brooklyn. Penny also
contributed two epic poems (’I Thee Indigene’ and ’Africa Seems So Far Away’) to the album.
The amazing B’more Club MC Spank Rock contributed "Radical Businessman"-a soulful song about the time he got locked up at JFK over some jewellery. Other tracks of note include "The Dirge" a New Bad Things cover that proclaims "I
love you no matter where you spend the night..." and "Bumpin’ Rap Tapes" another anthemic lonesome love song.
"Japanther remains one the New York City’s most under rated acts...". - Pitchfork Media
"Japanther is one of the hardest fucking bands in Brooklyn right now. They sound like Iron Maiden, Throbbing Gristle, and Lightning Bolt gave birth to a squealing little baby with flaming guitars for arms. Their shows are chaotic and danger-charged lovefests and they are frighteningly dedicated to keeping it underground" - VICE
