Hi-Standard Making The Road

The third full-length from this Japanese trio, who represent the Far East division of Fat’s international empire, is a pretty good listen, much better than their 1996 debut. Making the Road is 18 songs worth of goofball punk with a healthy Snuff influence that keeps it from being run of the mill. They do an instrumental lounge song and cover the theme song from Green Acres. Funny, ha ha. (Fat Wreck)
