BABY LITTLE TABLETS: Self-titled: CD

If you’re like me, you might be asking yourself, “What kind of dumb ass name is Baby Little Tablets?” As soon as the vocals kicked in on this one, I realized that it’s one of those names that probably makes perfect sense in Japanese but doesn’t translate well to English, like Guitar Wolf. It seems like there are a lot of good Leatherface-influenced bands coming out of Japan these days, and this is no exception. It’s kind of like a less polished version of the Urchin, although lacking a lot of the hooks. This is a real good band that I look forward to hearing more from, but I still say that the best Japanese punk band ever was the Registrators. –Not Josh
