THIS IS MY EVERYDAYS LIFE!

Polysics are a Japanese band that Loves Devo. I mean they really really love Devo. Which is good. Because I love Devo too. Though I don't dress up like Devo (the Polysics do), I do think that they are one of the most vastly ignored and underrated bands of the last 20 years (one hit wonder my ass! Whip It may have been a fluke of a success, but they had a HUGE catalog of work.). I was raised on Devo, so I'm very happy to say that I'm going to see them LIVE at Summerstage this Saturday! IN that vein, here's some Polysics, a band that has clearly worshipped at the altar.

Polysics - Making Sense - this comes off of 2003's Neu!, and is a wonder of bent moogs and tape-machine-gun drumming. The song doesn't move much, preferring to focus on the mechanichal loopiness of it's synth, and a seemingly utterly random placement of those DAT snare beats. When the song does break, finally, near the end, it's merely to provide a big finish. But then, this is not a song about movement. This is ear candy at it's finest.



Polysics - I'm A Worker This is the song that convinced me to bother with Polysics though. Like Devo all freaked out on Cocaine, a tightly wound ball of utterly spastic energy, just waiting to collapse into a seizure. The mechanized sheen of Making Sense evaporates here, as the robots begin to short circuit and malfunction, beats going haywire, guitars, synths, drums, all operating as if they have no idea what the other is doing, pure sonic chaos, but somehow, inexplicably, the center holds, and when the song goes into an extended rockabilly freakout on guitar, while the synths keep doing their thing, and the vocals just stop, it works.

[Buy Neu! from Amazon.com!]

P.S. Sirenfest was In-fuckin-credible.

love the polysics. i lived in japan for a while and they were such a standout band - of course that's not to say there aren't plenty of wierd bands from japan... i think there's something about the opression of individuality that catalyzes eccentricism.

Boss, I went to Siren for the Fiery Furnaces.

I came home singing the praises of Trail of Dead.

The Furnaces were great... but Trail of Dead delivered one of the best live performances I've ever seen.

That simple really.
