VARIOUS ARTISTS: I Hate My Fucking Band: A Japanese M.O.T.O. Tribute: CD

Sep 20, 2017

Let’s face it, after reading the title, you should already have a fairly firm grasp on whether or not you’re gonna track this down and obtain it, and what am I gonna say to propel you otherwise? It sounds exactly like you imagine it to sound: Fifteen Japanese bands, some of whom you know and some of whom you don’t (plus M.O.T.O. himself/themselves/itself), dredging up chewy nuggets from M.O.T.O.’s virtually infinite box of punk pop Milk Duds to your continued delight and amazement. Fans of any element of the Japanese-bands-cover-M.O.T.O. equation will not be disappointed. People who are fans of neither Japanese bands nor M.O.T.O. are really rather stupid and should hurl themselves down stairways at their earliest convenience. BEST SONG AND SONG TITLE: “Dance Dance Dance to the Radio” by the Tweezers, although “Deliver Deliver Deliver” by Boys Order is decent competition. FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: If I can believe what I read, this is the first new Tweezers recording in twenty-one years. Is it drunk yet? ­–Rev. Nørb (Secret Mission, secretmissionrecords.com)
