NON BAND - NON BAND LP

Regular price $40.00 Sale

LULU'S:
Incredible unheralded bratty new wave outta Japan. Cutting her teeth in the legendary Tokyo Rockers scene of the late ‘70s, frontwoman and chief weirdo NON became notorious for her solo bass + vox sets that freaked out even the most freaky of the Japanese underground. That project quickly grew into NON BaNd and, several lineup changes later, birthed this; their one and only studio LP. Now a trio of bass, drums and clarinet/violin, the band nearly bankrupted their label by refusing to compromise. Staunching the moneymen ended up paying off, and the result is an equally bewildering and hooky collection of angular and shockingly raw new wave bangers.

In a move that Japanese underground scholar Jibiky Yuichi later dubbed “the single greatest loss of the ‘80s Japanese Underground”, the band added two more members then quickly disintegrated soon after the release of the LP. This reissue through German micro label TAL frees the album from it’s original 10” presentation and stretches the grooves to a full 12, allowing the bass grooves hit harder and clarinet to skronk shriller. Highly recommended for fans of freaky and bratty babes.
