We got this CD in the other day by Afrirampo on Tzadik and I was racking my brains trying to remember what it was and then it came back to me. My rep (bless him) said it was a winner cos it's these bonker Japanese birds who are mates with Boredoms and The Acid Mothers making some pretty extreme music. How excited? So here I am playing it and he wasn't lying.....  It rolls in somewhere in between earlier Sonic Youth, Melt Banana and Boredoms. We never hear any normal music from Japan over here. All we have hear is the extreme music.... I mean there's The 5,6,7,8's but how many crazy Japanese bands are there? Where does the normal music go? is there a machine that turns all of these normal pop songs into 40 minute droney workouts or 16 second ear splitting  brainsquashers?  I want it! On a closer listen this is pretty interesting stuff and not as extreme as I initially thought as there's some quieter bits here and there as well as a healthy dose of the theatrical.
