Radioactivity (members of Marked Men), Suspicious Beasts (Japan), Fatigue
RADIOACTIVITY have announced their first of two albums on Dirtnap Records! Radioactivity is a continuation of The Novice, Jeff Burke's band while living in Japan. Jeff has since moved back to Texas, and out of respect to the Japanese lineup of the band, has changed the name to Radioactivity. Some of these songs are re-purposed Novice tracks, while others are brand new. Jeff is one of the most distinctive songwriters in the punk rock underground, and these songs will sound instantly familiar to any fans of The Marked Men or Potential Johns. Band members include Jeff Burke, Mark Ryan, and Gregory Rutherford, whose credits read like an all-star lineup of Texas punk and garage rock royalty, including members of The Marked Men, Mind Spiders, Bad Sports, Wax Museums, The Reds, VIDEO, and The Novice.
Its a pure freakout out to see them as first Japanese band on Alien Snatch! Great bloomy garage psych pop you may never heard that rootsy out of nippon. Apart from the overall oddity "Never Bloom" is full of exotic driving twangy folk melancholy, mind-warping harmonic upbeat kicks, frontman Yusuke sings with desperate intoxicated recklessness, always evoking a surrounding of a sultry,mellow summer on a porch, fading away in throwing stones atmospherics. This album is the party for pop, psych and garage fans, it takes all of you into a great train trip without being phoney and predictable.
