Dressed in black leather jackets and playing at fast tempos, Guitar Wolf seem at first like a really anarchic version of The Ramones. But in some ways, the Japanese trio are more like a noise-punk mutation of Sun Ra. The group’s titular leader, Seiji, howls like a less melodic Darby Crash and leaps about the stage à la Dee Dee Ramone, but Guitar Wolf’s seemingly basic and trashy garage-punk songs get stretched out into bizarrely hypnotic (or extremely annoying, depending on your point of view) fusillades of feedback and other noise that often smash past the cardboard limits of typical song structures. Just when you can’t take it anymore, Seiji, drummer Toru and new bassist Hikaru will segue back into one of their relatively poppy, G.G. Allin–like massacres of a cheerful, Beach Boys–style melody.
