1000 copies pressed. 40th anniversary edition of ‘Our Solar System’, Jad and David Fair's third studio album as Half Japanese. Originally released in 1984, ‘Our Solar System’ is a wild and chaotic outsider take on the history of pop music. Including their suitably
avant-garde renditions of The 13th Floor Elevators’ ‘You’re Gonna Miss Me’, The Velvet Underground’s ‘European Son’, Buddy Holly’s ‘Because I Love You’ which is preceded by their own ‘Girl Athletes’ powered by a reverbed Bo Diddley rhythm. A bravura performance of detuned excitement, 40 minutes of beautiful at times frantic disorder. Filled with guitar and sax arm wrestling and bizarre sidesteps including a fuzzy take on Grieg’s ‘Hall Of The Mountain King’ which devolves into the standard ‘Louie Louie’ plus a jittering version of Bobby Lord’s ‘Did You Miss Me’. “A prime example of lo-fi garage exuberance full of romance, confidence, and verve.” AllMusic.
