The Pogo


The Pogo Hysteric Generation 12″

Let me guess—pop punk? Yup, five slow-medium tunes, one uptempo number. I can’t believe how many Japanese bands are going back to ’77 punk, but are showing no imagination or hindsight in how they regurgitate it.

The Pogo Little Boy / Toy’s Box flexi 7″

A two-song flexi, unusual in that this Japanese release doesn’t come in a sleeve (Japanese sleeves are the most expensive looking I’ve seen). Good ’77 punk with cool singing and rockin’ power, especially the drumming.
