2019 album. Japanese high octane rock n roll! Also available on vinyl.
Guitar Wolf! They are the keepers of all blasted, hard, manic songs, building a whole life on the bedrock of hyperactive RNR exhilaration. This Japanese power-group has been stupefying audiences at home and on the road since the late ‘80s and finally are back to unveil their capital-L loud jams.
‘LOVE&JETT’ is full of Guitar Wolf’s sweet, sweet love songs, all recorded in Japan. While each song’s words (apart from a handful of song titles, 1-2-3-4s plus a clever cover of Spencer Davis Group’s “Gimme Some Lovin’”) are in English everything else is punched out in their native Japanese. The energy explodes on the scene with the title track’s opening 1-2 bass-snare piston-fire and truly does not let up at any point on the full album. Seiji, Toru, and Gotz shine especially bright on “Sex Jaguar”, barely clocking in just over 2 minutes with chorus catchphrases and feline roars.
Guitar Wolf claim to be the No.1 “Jet Rock n’n Roll” band in Japan. Front man Seiji explains: “I love jet plane. I love noisy music, too. So... There were records... many records... every record have no big sounds. So... easy to listen. I hate that! So! I add jet sounds. Bwaaaahng! Explosion!”
