Welcome to this edition of the Good, the Bad and the Ugly. For this show we head east to Japan and play some tracks we dug up in record stores across southern Japan from Hiroshima to Kamakura to Beppu to Nagasaki (and more). Buying Japanese sixties stuff can be a challenge, especially if you don’t know the language, but some helpful record stores, the usual Babypop eye for beat driven classic and yes, OK, a bit of knowledge gets you a long way.
