Put Some Sugar On It…Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Half Japanese

The title says it all. Having released their fourteenth studio album last year and a bunch of re-issues it seems like a particularly good time to celebrate the genius of Jad Fair and Half Japanese. I’ll confess, these recent releases and re-releases have been my introduction to the band…….and now I’m thoroughly hooked! Read my various  ramblings on the subject below………

With Apologies to Mr Walker

Can't believe I left the Scott Walker & Sunn0))) album 'Soused' out of my Top 10 Albums of 2014....what a fool! It's an absolutely fantastic album; deep, rich drones, operatic vocals and an otherwordly atmosphere that pulls you right into an alluring yet nightmarish, dreamlike world. Go forth and listen.
