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) their guitars properly, as you’ll hear (note that this is a good thing).

Concerning the music of Half Japanese (particularly this album), I'd have to say that these are the rawest and most unhinged recordings that the brothers have released. It would be hard to imagine something more-so. Nonetheless, there are actually Springsteen and Dylan covers on here, along with a number of tunes such as No More Beatlemania that are fairly catchy. The overall experience, however, is nearly unmatchable in the world of music, and there are times when nothing else could possibly sound better.
