Album Review
Reviewed 2014-01-29
Dark, driving noise rock from veteran Japanese band: the best way I can describe it is Melt-Banana meets Dead Kennedys. Lots of metallic dissonance drawing on weird early hardcore bands like Die Kreuzen, Wipers, Beefeater, Effigies, or anything involving Jello Biafra. This shit is killer!
FCC clean, lyrics mostly gibberish and stray phrases. Play any/all.

1. (3:005) eavy delay and reverb effects over pounding noisy raving, Wipers meets Unsane?
2. (2:54) INSTRUMENTAL. awkwardly restrained chugging rocker, creative dynamics and use of flanger
3. (0:16) brief stereo-panned cymbal wash
4. (2:08) anxious incessant rhythms, Minutemen meets Gauze?
5. (2:09) Angry apocalyptic Japcore with motorpunk catchiness, kind of like a sillier G.I.S.M. which is a reference only Ragnar will get but check them out a.s.a.p.
6. (3:55) Pissed-off but funky punk dirge, see Effigies’ “Security”
7. (3:59) Dirty bass grooves and weird-ass guitar effects, spoken-wordish vocals, holy shit this is great
8. (2:45) jittery one-two hardcore punch, almost instrumental pogo anthem with some ranting about “nuclear crack”(??) in the end
9. (1:23) one minute of wobbling phaser tones and a bit of drums, a pointless interlude
10. (2:54) call-and-response pattern between bass and guitar, maybe theremin? mostly just weird-ass guitar and more gibberish yelling
11. (5:26)most heavily processed guitar sound, develops into a bizarre surf-punk chugger like Adolescents or Agent Orange smoking some bootleg Japanese hash
