I now have a new CD on my “to buy” list. I just learned that Frank Black (aka Black Francis from the Pixies) has released his newest solo album, Honeycomb. I will have to do some searching to find it here. It’s not always easy to find import music in Japan, and then you have to search in Japanese alphabetical order. Frank Black can be found in the “Fu” section, for “fu-ra-n-ku bu-ra-ku”.
In the part month or so I have purchased and otherwise obtained new music from Audioslave, Rise, Guitar Wolf, Queens of the Stone Age, and others. You can’t have too much music!
Yesterday I got all excited about discovering Guitar Wolf, a louder Japanese version of the Ramones. Today I found out that Bass Wolf died in March this year. No fair! Whenever I learn about a cool new band, they are usually already broken up or one of the key members has died.
The good news is that their greatest hits CD is in stores today, available in a special black leather case.
Today’s weather forecast was filled with news of a giant typhoon that was heading towards Numazu. Since I live on the coast, I decided to be responsible and stay home on my day off. However, the typhoon ended up changing directions and bypassed the area completely.
Fortunately, my day was not a complete waste. I spent some time online and learned about possibly the greatest band EVER: Guitar Wolf.
Imagine the Ramones if they were Japanese and way louder. The singer / guitar player is known as Guitar Wolf, the bass player is Bass Wolf, and in case you haven’t already guessed, the drummer is Drum Wolf. They are famous for playing incredibly loud, and their CDs are recorded the same way.
ROCK AND ROLLLL!!
