POLYSICS: Neu: CD

The American release of Polysics’ second album, originally released three years ago and only now being domestically released thanks to the kindness and diligence of Asian Man, and oh what a record it is. The Devo influence is still firmly in place, but the tunes seem less melodic and infused with more intensity, making them just plain rock out harder than their previous long player, Hey Bob! My Friend. More succinctly, this is the equivalent of having Boojie Boy rape your eardrum with an old Casio keyboard. Hunt down either of album, play it loud and play it often, ‘cause Polysics rule.
