More Guitar Wolf!!

geldriver

These guys are like the Ramones of Japan - they have 5 or 6 more albums as good or better than this (check them on youtube). Awesome raw rock & roll - it doesn't matter if they're singing in Japanese, English or Martian, they kick major ass.

They Say All Music Guide

Guitar Wolf returns with UFO Romantics, another collection of their speaker-igniting garage/punk/shockabilly insanity. As with their previous work, this album features fantastically titled workouts like “After School Thunder” and “Fire Ball Red,” both of which feature pummeling riffs and throat-shredding vocals courtesy of guitar wolf Seiji; and several songs move along at a breathless clip, particularly the fast-and-loud homage to “Taxi Driver,” which borders on hardcore, but many of UFO Romantics best moments come when the band slows down and develops a groove instead of driving their songs into the ground. Of course, slow is a relative term when it comes to a band like Guitar Wolf; songs like “Sparkle Baby,” the excellently named “Zaaa Zaaa Asphalt” and the title track have an almost Stones-y strut; “Nagasaki Jet” adds a blues-inspired progression and some impressive guitar work to the mix, while “Diamond Honey” shows off Guitar Wolf’s rockabilly side. For the most part, though, UFO Romantics showcases the band doing what they do best: cranking out lots of high-octane, rough-around-the-edges punk. “Gion Midnite,” “Jett Beer,” and “Lightning’s Melody” are perfect examples, and while UFO Romantics may be one of the band’s more polished efforts, it’s still raw enough to satisfy longtime fans. – Heather Phares
