From New Album ‘Crazy Hearts’
out 4th December
“Undefeated, undisputed, undeniable, unstoppable,
Untoppable, unflappable and unquestionably great.
Take a pen and underline the word great. To quote
The Beatles “All you need is love”. To quote me
“Damn straight”. Celebrate the celebration. Bravo
The undisputed champions.” Jad Fair
Album includes artwork from American illustrator and cartoonist, Gary Panter and reverse artwork from David Fair.
‘Crazy Hearts’ will be available on transparent turquoise vinyl and CD.
Half Japanese return with another thrilling ride into unknown charters encountering beasts, celebrities, and menaces.
Purveyors of noise and indie rock for over four decades, Half Japanese have inspired generations of fans from musicians and critics alike.
A philosophical psych-tinged journey, these whip-smart observations are uplifting with life-affirming sentiments (‘Wondrous Wonder’) that we are familiar with. They meld melodic classic rock riffs with heavier bass lines and darker, more twisted tones on ‘My Celebrity’ and ‘A Phantom Menace’.
Half Japanese deliver another well-wrought album with their usual DIY ethos and art punk spirit at its core (‘Undisputed Champions’), all whilst wearing Jad’s heart firmly on its sleeve (‘Crazy Hearts’).
New album ‘Crazy Hearts’ is released 4th December on Fire Records.
