IAMJAPAN: The First Two Years: Cassette

This is what I always thought would happen if a hardcore band liked The Replacements and Hüsker Dü more than Sick Of It All. The result kind of sounds like if The Ergs started a new band based off the sound of their song “Maybe I’m The New Messiah” and still ended up doing their experimental Erg-like tendencies. While I’m at it, I must state again, that while I love dead media, cassettes suck. When I tried to hit the rewind button on the stereo, I missed by a few centimeters and hit the record button. Because of this, I have lost five seconds of what is the strange paradox that is IAMJAPAN.
