Nippon Girls 2 [coll] – [Ace Records Ltd./Virgin]

Naysayer   2/25/2015   12-inch, International

I mean come on, really? Do I actually need to review this? Japanese! Girls! 1960’s! Groups Sounds Boom! Go-go pop! Beat girls!
Mini Mini skirts!
This is Nippon Girls 2 ( as in, “Where is Number 1? I need it! And there is a Number 3! I need it!). This collection of 12 hits from 1966 to 1970 is superb fun. As the cover says “Japanese Pop, Beat & Rock ‘N’ Roll”. That’s “N”. All female led. Surf guitar influences abound. Simple four four time. Twangy guitars sometimes playing on Japanese traditional music themes. Big British and American influence. Lots of cymbal. Slow. Fast. FRUG!!!!!!!!!
Read the amazing liner notes. Play this to death. If you don’t get it, don’t talk to me.
