Rightround Column: Moga The Y5
J-punk has been my thing recently: I've been listening to a lot of Ging Nang Boyz, Gauze (after reading this in Tokyo Damage Report), a J-Psychobilly compilation album called Far East Evils, punker-turned-novelist Machida Machizou's old work, etc. Another album whose play count has been shooting up in my iTunes library is So no Gunjyou, the new work by poetic, Japanese-language-only, quasi-emo quartet Moga The Y5, a longtime favorite group of mine. My latest rightround column is about Moga The Y5, their label Pizza of Death Records, and about the fact that punkers get older too.
