Boomkat Product Review:
New album from Japanese Avant Rock legends RUINS, on Mike Pattons Ipecac label. Making their U.S. debut at the same time as the Boredoms on legendary American freak rock label Shimmy - Disc in the early 90’s, Japanese monster- progressive-hard core-avant-rock band of wonder, Ruins got their music worldwide notoriety earlier than anyone in the Japanese independent scene. Since then, Ruins have released albums on top avant-garde labels such as Tzadik, Skingraft, Sonore and others, and have and have become favorites of the global indie music world: like Shonen Knife or Zeni Geva, their renown reaches far beyond the confines of their native Japan. Ace.
