Half Japanese


LP with pop out mask sleeve. On LP for the first time, Boo! includes a unique sleeve with pop out mask, no strings attached. 'They set a blueprint for subsequent indie rock, the kind that valued DIY yet didn't shy away from melody, and addressed matters of the heart without arch distance.' Pitchfork // 'Half Japanese are no dictatorship more an underground political movement, united in their love for Jad Fair's weird dismantling vision' The Wire // Fire Records will be reissuing Half Japanese's "Boo!", capturing their 1992 European barnstorming tour, just in time for Halloween. The record features a removable mask (no strings attached!) designed by the one and only Jad Fair. Issued for the first time on vinyl, Boo! was recorded at a pivotal time for the influential act, as they were gaining international recognition from the likes of Sonic Youth, Nirvana and Teenage Fanclub. These recordings capture the fierce and lively performances from their shows in Switzerland, Holland and Germany, highlighting all the things that are so amazing about the band. Europe was never quite the same after these shows. Jad Fair will be performing at this year's Incubate Festival, alongside 10 other Fire bands, in a specially curated segment of the popular outsider arts festival in Holland. More live dates to follow.
