Aburadako-Selftitled flexi ('83)+ selftitled 12inch('84) [Japan Avantgarde Punk]
second post for today
this time its 2x Aburadako
from 83 and 84
quite strange,but good!(imho)
stay tuned for more
aburadako have been around for a long while [they first formed in 1983], and still, i have difficulty in finding info about them – talk about being true to your underground roots! either way, they're worth checking out! i don't think everyone will like aburadako, they are definitely a brand apart, but you got nothing to lose and, in the worst possible scenario, all you might get is a fulminating headache hammering its way from your ears into your brain.
the first thing that you will definitely notice when listening to them is the vocalists voice. that'll either hook you up or turn you off! he's got a style that's very unique. personally i love the wacky style of singing, it's a very straightforward and honest way and it's what punk should be, loud and gritty!
the second thing you'll notice will probably be the drumming, which i think is tops! the guitar parts are also good and the bassline has its high moments
all of aburadako's albums are self-titled, meaning, they are all named 'aburadako'.
aburadako's lyrics are supposed to be either really deep, in the spiritual sense, or deep in their 'thickness' [read 'pseudo-intellectual, lots of nasty words to confuse you'] – as any self-respecting punk-driven band, their songs deal a lot with empty urban life, angsty disillusion and repressed revolt. or so i've heard :D
their drummer was supposedly in 15 bands, appart from aburadako(Ruins ect..)
