I went on a very long rant about them on my show the other week and was rather pleased to hear that other people just don't care about them.

Edit: Although I will say that I thought X-Ray was one of the best songs of 2005.

I'm having a hard time with some of the tracks, you know. I've been fighting the urge to skip past Between My Legs and Tiergarten because the intros are a bit tacky. But then a lot of his stuff starts off iffy and then gets stonking about halfway through.

Got my copy of Awake by L'Ark~en~Ciel yesterday.
Currently enjoying my third listen through and it's definitely hitting the spot.
Melodic, accessible J-Rock with some fantasticaly catchy tunes and one or two real stand out tracks.
Plus it comes with the lyrics in phonetic English so I can actually learn how to sing these songs, something that drives me nuts about all the rest of the J-pop/rock I listen to.

The Cribs is not too bad, but I think it needs another listen - I was reading a book while it was playing so it will get my undivided attention at some point

The 1990's was a rather pleasent surprise. It's nothing original, but it is entertaining guitar driven pop. Reminded a little of 60ft Dolls, The Datsuns & The Holloways.

It's worth tracking down some of the stuff by 1990s frontman's previous band The Yummy Fur. They made some really great stuff in the 90s.

Very proud indeed. Mainly because it has one of the quintissential (sp?) new wave tracks....Whip It - Devo

I think Devo may have been playing when the whole New Wave debacle started.

I was thinking the same thing about track lengths too! I'm still particularly struck on Haven't We Met Before?, but I'm thoroughly liking For Silence and Nothing Else Matters. Dust Motes takes a while getting going, but when it kicks in it's rather special.

Supercar are perhaps my favouritest Japanese band (with Polysics a very close second), which is a shame, as they split up in 2005. You should be able to find their stuff on the usual import sites. Maybe the best place to start is their album Futurama, and if you like more of the rock stuff, get their 16/50 1997-1999 Best of album, and if you like the more electronic stuff, get Highvision (my personal favourite of theirs).

As for Hoover's Ooover (the official, bizarre spelling), the song was called Collection. Unfortunately, this album, released February this year, doesn't have said track. Japanese bands have a habit of releasing lots of mini-albums in between main releases, as well as the usual singles. And it's not often that tracks from these small releases appear on the actual albums. Collection was one such case, appearing on the コレクション (Collection) release. However, I went to see them live in March and met a couple of the band members to tell them I saw them on Adam and Joe. They were very happy to hear that.
