One of the most prominent bands from Tokyo's experimental punk scene, GROUNDCOVER was formed by noise guru Mochi in 1998. Since then the band has recorded several notable self releases and toured neighboring Taiwan. With the success of bizarre acts like PEELANDER-Z, the jabbing rhythms, quirky pop sounds and spastic vocals of GROUNDCOVER are ready to take hold.

GROUNDCOVER break the surface on their latest release full of spasmodic bursts, absurd pop sensibility and guitar work that wavers from noise punk to avant funk. "Chinatown In the Hell" sets the pace with jabbing rhythms which charges into chaotic howling. The group dives into a post-punk inspired groove on "Boy Meets Girl," while the comically titled "Iggy Hop" sounds like RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS covering BEASTIE BOYS with a DISCHARGE-beat! With shards of metal, spazz punk, and no wave, GROUNDCOVER should be checked out by fans of DYNAMITE CLUB and PEELANDER-Z.
