I see that the cancer in this shoutbox hasn't stopped spreading. It's been like a year, guys.
Also I just wanted to state that I'm reeeeaaaally hyped to be seeing Jake and Full play old Guniw songs together in two weeks.
I went back to OTHER GOOSE the other day, and it's still a fantastic album. I'm not sure though the blame can be fully placed on Asaki, as Full was apparently a willing participant as well. Music media in Japan is fucking garbage, but I gotta wonder if there are any writeups from 1998 or 1999 that make these connections with possible explanations as to why it happened. Also, I went back and listened through BUG's discography with Asaki the other day... there is a track on "Freak EP" that borrows elements from NIN's Closer and Into the Void. GAH
It's a little frustrating, because the remaining songs on DAZZLE I haven't confirmed yet are still suspect to me now. If GRAZING (the one written by Imai Hisashi) ends up being another "cover," I'll flip. :O
Baby's One Do (Fools Gold by The Stone Roses), Drop an Oar (Cuckoo by Curve), Steel Leaf (Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus by Curve), DADA (Is There Something I Should Know? by Duran Duran), Tooi Kari (Send His Love To Me by PJ Harvey) and Looser Sugar (Sugarcube by Yo La Tengo). My mind is blown....
