ROCK OF ASIAN: Geki the Great

March 25th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

Geki the Great is the guitarist for UK actress-turned-dance-punk artist Ebony Bones, whose debut album drops sometime this spring. Our pal Adriel caught Ebony & Co. at SXSW and dubbed the headdress-wearing Japanese guitarist the “Coolest Asian Ever,” although we may have to jack that title up to “Coolest Human Ever” and call it a day.


The whole band oozes cool in a posterior way that’s become the calling card of other British artists like M.I.A. and The Go! Team–they’re at once post-punk, post-funk, post-modern, and even a little post-gender and post-racial. And you can dance to it!

So hitch your horse to Ebony Bones’s “post” here.

UK-based band the Go! Team is something like sonic Lexapro–a happy pill for your ears. On Monday, they made their Proof of Youth B-side “Milk Crisis”–ridiculously boppy and infectious–available for free download on their website. If you watch the Cartoon Network, you may have seen snippets of “Milk Crisis” in recent promos. Here’s the whole video, with Kaori Tsuchida singing in English and Japanese:
