The Essential Sounds from the Far East (Estrus Records)

By: Mike SOS

DMBQ stands for Dynamite Masters Blues Quartet for those keeping score at home, and this Japanese group's latest 10-track release marks its first in the U.S., despite sharing the road with Fugazi and Mudhoney across the states. The hard rockin' blues based band kicks out the jams and acidic rhythms on tracks like "Mo-Ya Mo-Ya" and "Mirror Baby", once again proving that you don't need to know English to know how to scream and wail like Robert Plant, or play like a garage band from Anytown, U.S.A. Psychedelic, pulsating, and noise-rock driven, DMBQ's delivery is flawlessly sloppy and ridden with the kind of textures that the mod '60s left behind. Shagadelic, indeed.
