Thursday, October 24th at KINGS:
Few of punk rock’s founding fathers could have anticipated the extreme to which Half Japanese took the music’s do-it-yourself ethos. Founded by brothers Jad and David Fair, Half Japanese was quite probably the most amateurish rock band to make a record since the Shaggs, all but ignoring musical basics like chords, rhythms, and melody. However, the brothers made that approach into a guiding aesthetic, steadfastly refusing to progress in their primitive musicianship over a career that lasted decades. Their unpredictable, full-of-life show is not be missed.
w/ Lud and Polyorchard
