OK, welcome to your new favourite band if you like Pixies, Hüsker Dü and Japanese stuff.
In this episode Ewan tries to convince Nick, returning pod favourite Chris Whitby, and pod newcomer, guitarist of Math Rockers Delta Sleep,Glenn Hodgson of the merits of Japan's Number Girl.
Despite only putting our 4 albums between 97 and 2002 the legacy of Number Girl on the Japanese Alt Rock scene cannot be overestimated. They brought melodic US-style Post Hardcore and left a legacy of guitars, innovation and … some questionable song titles.
Glenn is the lead guitarist of Brighton's excellent Delta Sleep, and their latest album, a collection of live tracks accompanied by a series of short films is well worth your time. Check them out, and buy something from their bandcamp at https://deltasleep.bandcamp.com/music
If you fancy supporting the show, either leave us a review somewhere (Apple Podcasts would be awesome) or donate a few euros, dollars, pounds . We currently have small costs every month and it would be great to lower our outgoings.
Regardless of whether you can chip in, a 5 star review (if you feel like it) on Apple would help enormously.
Jonathan is the genius behind our theme music and you can hear more of his stuff on his Bandcamp
