ミシン - 走れ馬車馬


so, here's an excellent little post-punk album by ミシン. they were signed to nagomu, as far as i know, and only put out three releases (this, plus two little EPs). their sound kinda reminds me of The Cure's first album Boys Don't Cry, but much more interesting (probably due to the weird awkwardness; nagomu pretty much only signed bands who were kinda awkward, as i'm sure you all know by now). there's a building intensity on this entire album, like there's something laying right underneath that is about to explode. a primal scream, per say.

anyways, this is a really wonderful album. download this now.

  2. i do actually already have the two EPs (got 'em around january of this year), but thanks!

    by the way, i'm totally indebted to you for uploading that Some Girls VA, mostly because of the Still track. it's fucking flawless (just like all of their songs, of course).

  5. oh trust me, there's plenty of stuff from your blog that i've downloaded. your blog is some sort of ultra archive of all things late 80s japan, so it's been a huge help.

  6. 1) A question: is it possible that there is something more in the .rar file apart from the album? Not that I complain at all, on the contrary, but I think there is some more material there.

    2) It reminds me The Cure also, but more sophisticated. I remember Robert Smith once said The Cure could do even country... but never did in fact. These guys do something like that and also Latin rhythms in a dark style (!)

    3) The blog rocks, I even like the aesthetic side, but... any chance of a bigger font? That tiny one, red on black to make things worse, makes things harder for a bat like me.
