Warsaw Pact

Upon request, Chinese-by-way-of-England rocker Guigui Suisui recommended some Japanese punk bands for me to check out. Most of them were way too hardcore for my taste (though I'll provide the list for your perusal later.) But that makes sense -- who's crazier than a British expat making a guitar out of a skateboard and a single bass string?

Oh yeah, this fucking guy.

A proudly proclaimed shoegazer (and selfie taker?) Warsaw Pact creates buzzy pop in what sounds like his bedroom. It drones, it irritates a little, but damn if it isn't catchy.
