I'm sure many people reading this will remember back to 2005 when Funeral Diner was releasing shit willy-nilly. Well, maybe not in those words - but you know what I mean. This 10" mofo dropped and after track one I was all like, "Meh, this singing doesn't really work." Skip to track two and my initial assessment was hastily disassembled. "What in the goddamn hell is this?" was my next question. "Fucking amazing," came the response. Then I never heard from them again. They were a Japanese band. They sounded like a poppier Envy and early-Hopesfall.
This shit is pretty damn engaging. It's massive. It's pretty. It's a lot of good adjectives. So download the songs linked below.
What?!?!?! Whilst doing this review I just stumbled across the fact that this band has released numerous cds in Japan. I have included the 7 songs I have been able to scrape together off of a few albums listed below. If anyone tracks any of these down, please post them! I would presume the only way to find them is to search in Japanese.
