If you haven’t noticed, Japan has the most fanatic fans out there. Take this band for example. This three piece plays an authentic version of ’60s pop rock. Very reminiscent of the early Beatles and a band I remember my dad listening to as a child, the Mindbenders. It sounds like it was recorded live in a studio setting on an old two-track recording machine, like the bands of that time. A Hammond organ is incorporated at times to add to the appeal. The songs are so bubblegum, you can’t help yourself from grinning like a child who has had too much sugar. Pretty cool and groovy in my book.
