GUITAR WOLF: Love and Jett: LP

Aug 01, 2019

Guitar Wolf are on their thirteenth album with Love and Jett. They consistently tour promoting album after album of way-overdriven rock’n’roll and destroying stages like leather-clad deities. There have been a lot of trends in lo-fi in the years since their first album Wolf Rock was released. Guitar Wolf keep the rock alive, even if their albums sounds similar. Aside from loud chords, this record contains a lyrics sheet in English. “Sci-Fi Brat” travels at full-blown speed: “a primordial kaiju appears/ orange lightning strikes the sky/ the dark streets are all I see/ I’m just a rock’n’roll lover.” “Bowling in Takada-No-Bada” is a call for the band to bowl as they have trouble hiding from the “arrogant sun” on a Sunday afternoon. “I’m gonna stick my fingers in them white hot holes/ Go, go, go! Go, go, go! Go, go, go! Strike!” I didn’t pick that segment for the double entendre; I think he’s more espousing the R‘n’R lifestyle. I hope that’s how they always live. –Billups Allen (Third Man)
