VIVISICK: Nuked Identity: CD

Pure insanity! Think Toy Dolls on speed and LSD at the same time. And Japanese. This record is totally bonkers. Wild, over-the-top, speedy punk rock from the psych ward. All sung in Japanese—but with translated titles such as “Why Must I Grab My Penis?” and “Asia Is Burning,” it seems like the lyrics are just as scattered as the music. Fans of Hi-Standard and Love Songs will love this. –Chad Williams (Vivisick, vivisick.shouten.jp / Tankcrimes, tankcrimes.com)
