OHNO EXPRESS / SOON: Split: CD

Ohno Express features former members of Hooton 3 Car and some Servo members. Soon hail from Tokyo, Japan and formed by a former member of the band Blew. Enough of the facts and let’s go the important: my opinion. I personally like Soon better than Ohno Express. The music is raw and melodic. The fact is that Soon has a female singer and Ohno Express didn’t grip me as much as Soon. Soon really didn’t get my gonads all twisted like I was hoping for. More garage-like than maybe I would have preferred. I usually like most of what I hear from Japan. I’m biased that way. Maybe on another day I would appreciate this more, but I just did not connect.
