The three piece hailing from Saga prefecture on the North Western tip of the Japanese island of Kyushu describe themselves as "Junk Pop" which is a fairly appropriate tag. The band who take their name from the Japanese translation of Fyodor Dostoyevsk's "The Idiot" have a joyous, care free, unpretentious, anything goes approach to their music. Something ably demonstrated in the opening track of their 5 track CDR where the band breakdown into Japanese instructional exercise drills mid-song before launching into 30 seconds of Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit"then rolling straight back into the groove like nothing happened. yeah, why not?
Hakuchi are as fun as they are loud, catchy and unpredictable.
