out of Japan comes this delicious release. Original Punk
Super Stars was recorded in 1996 by the now-defunct
surf-punk-with-a-twist outfit Wonwons. It's a demented,
hooky ride buried under diy recording limitations, but it's fun
nonetheless, and definitely recommended for fans of the Japanese
Taking a cue from The Ventures as much as from modern day
greats like Shadowy Men On A Shadowy Planet, Wonwons
creates ridiculous surf tracks that rely heavily on bass and
occasional treble gee-tar. The drumming is solid and the vocals
are bizarrely comical when used. Five live tunes are included in
addition to the six recorded tracks to give the listener a taste of
the band's exciting live performance style.
Fuck water surfing, this disc is for hitting waves of pure
acid. Embrace the burn.
