No Not Poo. 01:26


Kon'nichiwa! This 20 minute EP was recorded live on Saturday 27th June 2021 at Polemic Music Studios, Hidcote Road, Oadby. The spoken sections were recorded over the following days on an iPhone X, with the final edit approved on Saturday 10th July 2021.

Appropriating Japanese themes (gongs, ninjas, logographic words, etc.) to appeal to East Asian improvised music promoters in the most contrived way possible, the cutest boy band on Earth return with yet another thrilling attempt to eschew all things musical in this exuberant suite of popping candy classics! Tokyo here we come!

You'd have to be dead from the neck up to resist the charms of such bouncy hits as "Numbers, Numbers, Numbers" and "Non-idiomatic Ninjas"; are you?

We could bore you with all the little details about how Nano managed to hurt his finger during the session and quit the band again; or how Evil Daddy, hungover from the previous day, failed in his role as engineer to press the record button (yes, we had to do it all over again), but we think the REAL story is told by the MUSIC. Once again, dōitashimashite!

Composer Evil Dick is a violent, abusive control freak. He is psychotic, given to totally contradicting himself. He is self- obsessed, which is not surprising because he is also incredibly dull (anyone heard his "coloured
dots" monologue?). He is prone to bouts of extreme grumpiness, especially in bed, when any kind of sound, including his own breathing sends him into a rage.
