so Japanther and i have a bit of a history. i met Ian (the singing-drumming half) soon after he came to nyc when he moved in as my roommate ('98?). i subsequently ended up becoming a rabid fan of Japanther when they started destroying things years later. the shows on brooklyn street corners are still some of my favorites. i went on a few tours and documented them, you can see most of it here. unfortunately, you just can't leave your friend stranded in arizona, no matter how bad a day/week/tour you've been having. so that was pretty much that. but they're first album "South Of Northport" is by far one of my favorites and pretty damn close to a "perfect album" (you know what i mean). they have been very prolific with their releases (if not a bit scattered), but i still hold that their first is by far their best. even if the cover art and title of "Dump The Body In Rikki Lake" is the best/most appropriate i have ever seen. ever. so yeah. hate 'em, love 'em, it's all the same. show me another dance-punk band that has songs asking parents not to get a divorce or lyrics like "close your eyes, close your eyes, go to sleep, you're all so boring!" and i might be interested. maybe.
