Ten 23

Ya gotta love Jap rock. When robots (urban robots living in some kind of deranged robot megalopolis) finally become aware and shortly thereafter start taking serious robot drugs, this is the kind of music they’re gonna make. Kinda like if your VCR got strung out on crystal meth and started spontaneously making its own music. Very metallic (but NOT “Heavy Metal”) clang to this stuff, injected with enough short-circuited electricity to power an electric chair. Weird-ass vocals. 60 hertz, 440 volt lounge music.

All my robot friends love it. The jury’s still out with the human crowd.
