Our Solar System RSD 2024 edition

40th anniversary edition of ‘Our Solar System’, Jad and David Fair's third studio album as Half Japanese. Originally released in 1984, ‘Our Solar System’ is a wild and chaotic outsider take on the history of pop music.

“A prime example of lo-fi garage exuberance full of romance, confidence, and verve.” AllMusic

Including their suitably avant-garde renditions of The 13th Floor Elevators’ ‘You’re Gonna Miss Me’, The Velvet Underground’s ‘European Son’, Buddy Holly’s ‘Because I Love You’ which is preceded by their own ‘Girl Athletes’ powered by a reverbed Bo Diddley rhythm.

A bravura performance of detuned excitement, 40 minutes of beautiful at times frantic disorder.

Filled with guitar and sax arm wrestling and bizarre sidesteps including a fuzzy take on Grieg’s ‘Hall Of The Mountain King’ which devolves into the standard ‘Louie Louie’ plus a jittering version of Bobby Lord’s ‘Did You Miss Me’.
