Japanese psych-garage that can even turn The Horrors on its head

Album Review: Bo Ningen - Bo Ningen (Stolen Recordings)

8 / 10 This Japanese psych-garage band have been building a huge reputation in London of late. [a]The Horrors[/a] are in thrall to them, and no wonder; ‘[b]Bo Ningen[/b]’ makes ‘[b]Primary Colours[/b]’ sound like The Bodyguard soundtrack. Right from the opening Black Sabbath meets The Sonics of ‘[b]4 Seconds To Ascension[/b]’ this is an incredible ride; ‘[b]Koroshitai Kimochi[/b]’ is like [a]At The Drive-in[/a] with The Fear, ‘[b]Gasmask Rabbit[/b]’ bursts from a paranoid lullaby into precision-guitar overdrive, while ‘[b]Kage[/b]’ is [a]Nirvana[/a]’s cover of ‘[b]Love Buzz[/b]’ getting machine-gunned to orgasm. People who know great music’s all about getting your face stoved in by black-clad maniacs are going to LOVE this.
