Half Japanese
Why Not?

Why Not? is the latest instalment of twisted shambolic indie-pop from Jad Fair’s Half Japanese. Over a 42 year career the band have made 16 studio albums that will make you laugh, cry, dance, shout and whatever else you feel like doing. Album #17, Why Not? is no exception. Vinyl LP and CD, and if you&rsquo...view item »

Half Japanese
Half Gentlemen / Not Beasts

The very first record from the Fair brothers’ cult band Half Japanese. Half Japanese are notable for a number of reasons, one of which is making their debut a triple album! This set captures the whole thing, as well as another CD of bonus tracks. They are also notable for their refusal to play (or tune) th...view item »

Jad Fair, Tenniscoats and Norman Blake
Raindrops

What a team-up: Jad Fair of Half Japanese plus the wonderful Tenniscoats, as well as Norman Blake of Teenage Fanclub. With this personnel, Raindrops could hardly fail to be one the most playful and odd records of the year, and it does not disappoint! Lo...view item »

Jad Fair & Kramer
The History Of Crying

Jad Fair, half of Half Japanese and a regular collaborator with plenty of other acts (Daniel Johnston! The Pastels) here teams up with Kramer, the mysterious and legendary producer / label-runner who worked with Galaxie 500 to name but one band....view item »

Half Japanese
Hear The Lions Roar

Everyone either does or should love Half Japanese, the expression of a brotherly love for weirdo rock music to be played with no regard for conventional technique. Hear The Lions Roar is their brand new record: it's as fun as ever, and apparently features many of the musicians who worked with the band in the 90’s ...view item »

Jad Fair & Norman Blake
Yes

Jad Fair and Norman Blake last worked together in 2003 on the Jad Fair & Teenage Fanclub album, Words Of Wisdom And Hope. Musically, Yes is more in the vein of Teenage Fanclub’s hook-laden guitar pop than the jarring stabs of Half Japanese, but Jad Fa...view item »

Jad Fair & Danielson
Solid Gold Heart

With artists like Daniel Johnston you can see the idiot/genius dividing line is a pretty slender one, whereas I always had Jad Fair down as firmly in the idiot camp. Johnston’s naivity is thoroughly engaging, Fair’s always seemed somewhat studied - exemplified here where he gives shout outs to bo...view item »

Yuri Landman Ensemble (featuring Jad Fair & Philippe Petit)
That's Right, Go Cats

What a collection of interesting characters on this release! Yuri Landman is a maker of experimental electric stringed instruments, Jad Fair is in Half Japanese, and Philippe Petit is a turntable-utilising sound artist. That’s Right, Go Cats captures the ensemble ...view item »

Jad Fair
Beautiful Songs

First of all, if you're a Half Japanese fan, you need the HJ greatest hits 2xcd and, for that matter, all their records except Hello which, to my ears is simply not great anywhere, at all (my only true HJ disappointment). All 109 songs are included on a download here and I have begun to listen through but rarely can listen to a full song, althou...view item »

Teenage Fanclub & Jad Fair
Words Of Wisdom And Hope

In now is the Teenage Fanclub and Jad Fair LP. The music is very Teenage Fanclub with insane vocals on from Jad Fair. Some of the songs are quite pretty and lovely with nice guitar things happening. Mr Fair's voice might put you off as he's not everyone's cup of tea. Many mo...view item »

Jad Fair & Bill Wells
Whale

Even odder is a new CD in today from the US by Jad Fair (why he not as big as Daniel Johnston I do not know... well it might be something to do with the fact that he's not quite as mental but still....) and Bill Wells (of Bill Wells Octet fame!) and it's recorded live in Glasgow. This is menta...view item »

Teenage Fanclub & Jad Fair
Near To You

Jad Fair and Teenage Fanclub pair up on a single This is quite catchy quirky indie pop. A nice little tune. Nothing earth shattering but pretty good. Again I think this could be a grower as it's getting it's hooks into me while I listen. Damn those guitar like meat hooks. Near To You is on 7" and CD...view item »
