You need the full story? Then it has to be started back in the day when this rocknroll counter revolution spaceship was geared up in high school. Isn´t it a coincidence the legendary TEENGENERATE play a long awaited show in Europe in two weeks? Fink and all the kids kicked off the golden 90´s of Japanese buzz saw punk with the RAYDIOS, FIRESTARTER, HAVENOTS and a bunch of killer 45 from Nippon. They saved us from getting shitted in grunge hole (or any other) till the end of the 21st century. That times when we´re addicted to RIP OFF & CRYPT laboratories, we didn´t have facial hair but and tons of energy and bus ticket to LAZY COWGIRLS show. Today, wise as the corner thimblerig, we know what these bus tickets & import records been worth on our never ending mission pouring out our, indeed, superior taste of rock'n'roll. In this matter, the WILDWAX crew made it to Japan to hang out with the NOVICE and the SUSPICIOUS BEASTS, arriving back at our premises with some vinyl to set the fire! Now we present the fully grown re-issue of the fantastic debut album with the same energy to us as aforementioned bands by these Tokyo madmen forming the SUSPICIOUS BEASTS. Initially released by BLACK HOLE records we´re stoked to have the limited run (in reverse cover artwork) ready for their 2013 European tour. We knew that your best of 2012 list still isn´t ready yet! "Used to be Beautiful" is an amazing record overflowing of gritty power pop hooks, garage rock destruction, country bitterness, cartwright afficionadoism, and wild folk distortions. It´s like bringing punk intensity & fun into those 60´s psych mind control nightclubs. Your choice of a 45 RPM evil indian summer hits or sweetened agent orange sunsets. Blown out manic harmonicas, fuzzed acoustic guitar, roaring organs and singer Yusuke pull you in the lonesome alleys of rocknroll where sweet dreams can break like hipster glasses. For all rocknroll bonsai farmers out there - right at the moment when you promise the afternoon to your takeaway cucumber salad you see the threatening storm is in the distance and the air is full of leafs and sirens. As on the last day, you empty all your pockets and kick in hallucinogens & light the worst stuff when the BEASTS transfix you upside down at the a barn door. So sewer rats of the muddy basements of the MOJOMATICS, DEADLY SNAKES, GOODNIGHT LOVING, REIGNING SOUND, PUSSYWARMERS, MUJERES if you swim to Japan, this is called home! And yes, we just released the SUSPICIOUS BEASTS second album entitled "Never Bloom"!!! Mission accomplished?
