Wacky Japanese garage punk rock!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album collects the early days of the 5678's, who, obviously, rose to fame in America with their appearance in "Kill Bill vol. 1". But this album isn't quite the Japanese doo-wop sound that they rocked out with in "Bill". No, this is a collection of their beginnings, their garage days. On this album, which has a wonderfully rough, basement recording sound, the ladies (and a dude back then) rock out with a style that sounds like The Go-Gos, The Ramones, and The Cramps jamming together in two to three minute bursts. There's even a track (Ramones) that starts with a Ramones song, which is then joined by the girls shouting 'Hey! Ho! Let's Go!' in a frenzied, off beat pattern, which then changes into a poppy beat that sounds like it could have been written by Belinda Carlisle. There's even a pretty wild cover of "We Got The Beat". But throughout it all, the 5678s retain a little bit of that punk rock doo-wop that eventually became their trademark sound. This is, without a doubt, their purest album ever. Pick it up if you get a chance, although it's more than likely going to have to be through an imported special order until they officially blow up stateside (I was lucky enough to snag a copy when I was in Japan) and listen to the beginnings of one of the rockin'est bands ever."
