"Kawaguchi Masami is a Japanese guitar monster who has done time in Miminokoto, LSD March, and Broomdusters, and played with Keiji Haino for a time. This, his new band, also features bassist Akira Kikuchi and drummer Nao Shibata (Hijokaidan, Doodles). A track by New Rock Syndicate featured on the recent PSF compilation Tokyo Flashback Vol. 6. The new album is called Cat vs. Frog and clocks in at around 40 mins. It's exceptional wailing, burning garage psych-rock grounded in Kawaguchi's trademark heart-breakingly melancholic emotional intensity, instantly hummable, head-nodding toe-tapping riffs and melodies and unavoidably air guitaring white light, white heat guitar solos. Cat vs. Frog is pressed on white vinyl, in an edition of 500."
