Album Review
Reviewed 2003-06-11
Here we have some great noisy hilarious songs – 155 songs, 20 in CD audio format, another 135 as mp3! – from this cult legend of the late 70s DaDa group Half Japanese. Jad Fair also toured and sang for Yo La Tengo not too long ago, where he really let his Lou Reed voice fly, only more nonsensically. For the sake of argument, I also think of the same experimental spirit and zest for noise of early 80s No Wave, only without any pretense of social or philosophical meaning, and definitely with no desire to be more punk than thou. Think also of older Ween.
