Here's a collection on Club AC30 from Japanese power-popsters Taffy. I'm not sure when these songs actually came out but if you've heard this band before then you'll know that it all sounds like it was made in the mid '90s. This is no exception, mixing the bubblegum-Britpop of bands like Lush and Sleeper with a dense wall of guitar fuzz which is part Slowdive, part Smashing Pumpkins.   Which of course sounds like it shouldn't be very good, but in actual fact there's something quite naive and charming about them, the vocals are wispy and buried like a girl-fronted take on the Wedding Present in their prime, the vocals are always blazingly, chunkily distorted, but the songs are always thoughtful, incredibly catchy bits of J-pop only thinly veiled by the big '90s tones of their strange obsession with our little island. Somehow what comes out is far greater than the sum of their influences, really likeable, tuneful distorto-pop delivered with love and enthusiasm and heavy doses of fuzzy guitar.
