ROCK OF ASIAN: The Predators

December 16th, 2009 | 5 comments | Posted by Diana

I’ll be honest. For about three weeks, when not busy playing Beatles Rock Band*, I’ve been dusting off old and also sorta-oldish punk albums, to give them a good spin–providing a soundtrack for the month’s chaos and all of my nervous holiday energy. 

“Punk” coming out of my speakers can mean a lot of things–sometimes the herky jerk of Bad Brains or Black Flag, sometimes a fun romp with the Ramones, Fugazi if I’m feeling fresh, Stooges if I’m not. And… okay. I’ve also been indulging my Orange County roots with bad 90′s power punk that will go unnamed to preserve my innocence.

What I’d not even thought to entertain, at least until this week, were all of the fun Japanese punk bands that I meant to fall in love with twenty years ago but didn’t because I was in elementary school without an Internet connection. Take, for example,  The Predators, who I’m listening to right now (via MySpace recommendation by Japanese alt-veterans, The Pillows).

Try The Predators out yourself, maybe after a nice journey down memory lane with The Clash and The Rubinoos. You might just want to stop awhile and look around a bit.

    The internet didn’t exist when I was in elementary school…neither did microwaves, answering machines or cell phones. So Bite me with your lack of internet connection! I would say Jen could sympathize a little bit, but she and I agreed that she just turned 29.

    I’ll try not to hate on your youth (it’s all relative) so thanks for the Predators heads up. They are great fun!

    Egads. The internet didn’t exist, at least not for us common folk, until I was in grad school. Either I’m ancient or…wait, maybe I was a child prodigy…yeah, that’s it, I’m not an old fossil…

    (microwaves date into the early 60′s)= uh oh

    thanks Diana for making me feel not-so-old because I listened to Bad Brains! ;) Albeit a quite homophobic band at the time…
