That said, truth has played very little part in ANBAD’s journey so far, and so the dreadful deception will probably continue, although this is mainly because I don’t have time to design a new logo.
I mean, but of course Satanicpornocultshop were next on my list the moment I saw their name. And truly, who can say it wasn’t time for some more Japanese Juke House? I don’t think I’ve indulged this maddening obsession for, ooh, at least a couple of months.
Actually, ‘maddening’ is the operative word here.
Say? Say? Say? is the most flat-out, totally-wardrobe, lunacy-fuelled song I’ve ever featured on ANBAD: a wholly absurd, manic, explosion of odd pop-culture samples, 808 noises and furious drum-snaps, seemingly arranged entirely at random.
That said, if you look past the sheer bananas-nature of the song, there’s plenty to admire: odd humour, the entire absence of commercialism, a certain stylishness in the lack of concern about the reception to such mad music.
That’s my excuse, anyway.
