Geil - Velnadet EP


Another band I know little about. This 12" was released on Hil Records in 1986. Judging by the fact they recorded this album at a studio in Shinjuku, they must have been a Tokyo band. In any case, the music is all over the place, marrying fast angular rhythms, thumping and heavy bass, and frantic scratchy yelps and... err, "singing." In places, it almost sounds as if a long forgotten member of the Virgin Prunes were singing for an earlier incarnation of Play Dead. Geil also released a 7" EP, which I shall post at a future date.

Geil were:
Vox: Alice
Bass: Swado
Drums: Akagami Aomakigami
Guitar: Shoichi Tomomori (Nazo)
