Gaji - Blowpipe

I have no idea why Gaji didn't go on to rule the world ... but it would be a better place if they had. Think all of the best bits of Drive Like Jehu, Jesus Lizard, Live Skull and throw in a K. Records vibe. They are better than that. On this recording they are Yui Kimijima and Yuko Hasegawa on guitars and vocals with the pseudonymous Dama on bass and vocals and Noda on drums

CD released on ZK Records in 1995. It's not MP3.

Better than Jesus Lizard? "That's a bold statement", as the movie line goes. Much thanks for the post.

mate, "just hear the bounce of the bass on some of these tracks" as the vicar said to the actress. been lucky enough to be in the same room as JL live on several occasions ... and the vicar makes me think "wow, that's a very impressive bounce you have going on there".

Thanks for sharing this. I saw Gaji live several times and they were amazing. Yui Kimijima has been running a recording studio outside Tokyo for some years now, and has been helping a lot of terrific bands sound good. He's a phenomenal guitarist though, it'd be nice to hear more of that again.
