マキシマムザホルモン & THE Best Drummer In The World
And listen to it .. oh, at least once a day. It's some kind of amazing.
Just saw they won the "MTV Best Rock Video Award" in Japan a few days back. Which is pretty mind blowing - Japan has a real vibrant alternative music scene, but the mainstream always seems dominated by the bubblegum schoolgirls and elderly crooners.
Yeah, did I mention Makishimamu Za Horumon is pretty "alternative"? Like driving down a mountain road at 100kph. Every turn you don't know what to expect. Don't try to guess - you will be wrong. Pop+punk+metal+ska+WTF!
Kind of like Red Hot Chili Peppers way over the edge. And in Japanese.
And I am sorry Lars and Nikko, Kawakita Nao 川北 奈緒 / ナヲ is now THE best drummer in the world. And her vocals are essential for the unique fusion that is MTH.
If you are in Osaka 大阪府 tomorrow (3-Jun), you can catch them live. You lucky bastards.
Let'er rip. This is classic. The first track from ぶっ生き返す..
