Blond New Half
Kobe, Japan. Blond New Half. You can probably guess what that means. Bowie meets Jesus Lizard spazz punk. Awesome licks. Nice guys. One of them had a Jesus Lizard shirt on. It kind of sounded like that, too. Deep, dark bass lines. Noise that'd make any Brainiac fan smile. Really original. Japan has a tendency to be wholly on top of their shit, talent wise, because they have to. This band is no different, but no attitude either. Nice dudes. They also love Silkworm and Bottomless Pit. A great show. One hour on a train from Osaka. Tonight, FIGYA, a small DIY style space in an artist warehouse district.
