An interesting little find I had at Sloth Records today. If you know anything about me, I’m a pretty big fan of any sort of Japanese music. Likewise, I always try to keep my eye out for stuff like this. I was tempted to buy the $40 Attention Please record. Unfortunately… it was $40.

I’m not exactly familiar with Japan’s Baby Boomers and I’m even less familiar with that generations popular music. What I do know though is that the 60s were a time when Western rock’n’roll was just beginning to integrate itself into the East. With that said, when I listen to this record, I can hear an extreme amount influence from traditional Japanese folk music. Like half of the time it sounds like they’re covering Japanese folks songs in a bluesy surf rock style. Speaking of blues, that’s probably the third biggest influence I can hear behind the folk and the surf rock. The music feels dark and almost enka like at times. Add some stoner style fuzz and a tiny, tiny, tiny bit of funk and you get this record.

Anyways, if that sounds good to you, I suggest you check it out. It’s quite a good listen.

Here’s a download link I found off some guy’s site.
