Melon – The Gates Of Japonesia (12″)


Okay I’m back from my hols and determined to kick this blog back into shape with some weird and unusual postings.

First up is this balearic, slightly soft metal piece of Japanese electonica from band Melon. Think “One Night In Bangkok” via Malcolm  Mclaren’s Madame Butterfly stuff and you might be near, produced by Pet Shop Boys collaborator, Nick Froome. Odd would be a great way to describe it, especially the pop funk of “Pleasure Before Your Breakfast” and all the badly translated lyrics, HUGE electronic bass btw.
