PRETTY FLOWERS, THE- "Why Trains Crash" LP
SWIM TEAM- S/T LP
BALLADMEN- "Dear Old-Fashioned Rhythm" LP
Formation about seven years. The music and sound images that keep burning the ups and downs in the allure to the back alley in a radically musical character, poker face and calm overflowing with the "fullness" of BLUES PUNK + DANGEROUS MELLOW RHYTHM have been sharpened With words, it is boldly raised as a sail in the heart in the "conclusion" which interprets from the prewar to the present. “JAPANESE SWINGIN 'NIHILISTIC R & B PUNK GROUP“ BALLADMEN ”” The magnificent 1st full album “Dear Old-Fashioned Rhythm” (LP) ver. Completed at the end of dark adventure is released from DEBAUCH MOOD. This work contains a total of 10 songs. There are many backgrounds in the past, but the existence of bands where dark ensembles continue in a chain in a creative and advanced manner while over-writing everything, is strongly stained. An expression of Boogie's relief and a dense swell that momentarily hurts them, while expressing a passionate sense of separation for the reliable performance of each part. To build them, OLD was shown as OLD, but the style was sharpened at a single point, and the record was densely ingenious drift gt / vo, and overflowing multidimensional, pleasure that can not be compared with genius only It is a reality ensemble by the new ba trio that became the core of a complete band rather than an exaggeration by the best dr, and the present, and the guest player (ex- brigade nice mutsumi (percussion) ), Boro Kichi's Mr. Sunny Boya (Harmonica)) The fine arrangements will be engraved as more pressing with the cooperation of both.
The story of the prophesied Howlin 'Wolf, everything that Willie Dixon draws, the Professor Longhair, and everything into the habit of the rule of thumb as well, including the aspect of Paul Weller who has become black with some minimalistic chaos, is also always told (John Coltrane / Charles Mingus / Wes Montgomery etc ..) Including the process of rebuilding Jazzy Rhythm, Jawbreaker as a scar, Fugazi's reminiscent as a charm in various directions, "Blank feeling" is a bone as music It echoes to the medulla.
Aside. The first track "Back In My Town" where the throat carrying a scene opens the middle of swing and bop in Smoky and howling. The appeal of the band is full of immediate effects and overflows, and even then the abundant texture is overwhelmingly shown as the amount of information. While the width and habit of PUB ROCK which was hooked up like wind, and the image which human at that time expanded to the busy dream and the outside culture that would have danced over the last few years from the end of Japan, The gorgeous 100% BLUES PUNK MUSIC will be continuous as it mixes the solidity that instantly breaks them. BALLADMEN activity is reminiscent of the early days of the song from the music to imagine the background as an extension, to the present "clear" to fill the sense of fulfillment passing each time you turn the board, the standard number Aside is scolded while taking on the symbolism with the cover of SUMMER TIME. And the Bside first shot, the impulse of the title song "Dear Old-Fashioned Rhythm" and the intensity of all the matches mentioned above still determine the impact of this band, and the ballad of the extreme, Ronnie Self "Home In" It flows to the overtight, biting cover of My Hand. And last is the change sphere, until the alternative interpretation of the scene Old Blues Country music, it continues to spread throughout the recording time as if the charm is shook off. Two-thirds of the members have their roots in Ise City, Mie, as their hometown (currently based in Tokyo), and had already started from the boyhood period. The "talent" created by the group shows its brilliance under the recognition of fulfilling itself and others by the current joining with new members.
A great album in which all of their lives were fully demonstrated. The fictional missing links of the pre-war PUNK and POST HARDCORE will be smashed in 2017 as if they were "here" and will become more realistic in the future and memories will continue to be overwritten with shocking LIVE. I will. ※ Jacket design: Tsutomu Date illustrator living in Kyoto. Worked in several styles, such as print-style works like this work and pop illustrations. This time, it was created in the form of telling the contents of the lyrics of Dear Old-Fashioned Rhythm that the band became the title song to Mr. Date. He is fond of big movies, and is also in charge of the flyers of the DJ event "a party to put a bad song" in Kyoto. JAPAN IMPORT!
