Guitar Wolf! They are the keepers of all blasted, hard, spazzed out songs, building a whole life on the bedrock of hyperactive RNR exhilaration. This Japanese power-group has been stupefying audiences at home and on the road since the late ‘80s and finally are back to unveil their capital-L loud jams. Third Man is fortunate to be releasing their lucky 13th full-length album LOVE&JETT and to have a hand in supporting Guitar Wolf’s noisy and canonical rise to their rightful place in underground music's highest hall of fame.
LOVE&JETT is full of Guitar Wolf’s sweet, sweet love songs, all recorded in Japan. While each song’s words (apart from a handful of song titles, 1-2-3-4s plus a clever cover of Spencer Davis Group's Gimme Some Lovin’) punch out in their native Japanese, the adoring English-speaking public will be granted an insert enclosed in each LP and CD with all lyrics translated to English. (That means NO excuses to not have a haphazard bilingual sing-along on their upcoming US tour.) The energy explodes on the scene with the title track’s opening 1-2 bass-snare piston-fire and truly does not let up at any point on the full album. Seiji, Tōru, and Gotz shine especially bright on Sex Jaguar, barely clocking in just over 2 minutes with chorus catchphrases and feline roars.
LOVE&JETT hits the streets May 10, 2019. It is the first album recorded with newest Bass Wolf (IV), Gotz, who joined the band in 2018. A full US tour with Nashville Pussy is coming up from May 8-June 2.
So with your heart flying high and faster than Mach speed, the untouchable legends Guitar Wolf are back to rush you away into another dimension.
