HALF JAPANESE - VOLUME THREE: 1990-1995 (3CD)


"Continuing their Fire deluxe reissues of the entire Half Japanese catalogue, Volume Three: 1990-1995 is the third of four volumes containing three LPs/CDs. This next set of Half Japanese CDs begins with 1990's explosively, noisy and chaotic (sometimes improvised) 'We Are They Who Ache With Amorous Love' featuring their cover of the Them garage rock classic "Gloria" and two tracks "Titanic" and "Hand Without a Body" that were co-written with the like-minded Daniel Johnston. Two years later the notably more delicate and, dare we say, jangly, 'Fire In The Sky' (1992) arrived at a pivotal time for the group when they gained notable recognition from the likes of Sonic Youth, Nirvana, Teenage Fanclub and Yo La Tengo (whose Ira Kaplan guests on the record). This highly anticipated third installation closes the trio with 1995's 'Hot' which became MTVs album of the week on release, with Michael Goldbery writing "Hot, mixes Sonic Youth-style noise, Stooges primitivism and '60s pop with excellent results."
