Speed, Glue & Shinki [4/10/17]

I have a hat that says “Sex, Drugs and Flute.” It’s a horrible joke and it was way too expensive, but I don’t regret it at all.

Speed, Glue & Shinki exemplifies the message on my hat more than any other featured flutist on Sick Flutes. Just seeing the above picture and reading the name of the band should explain the sex and drugs. The flutes should be taken for granted. I don’t mess around here.

This is the band that introduced me to Japanese psych rock, but I don’t remember how I discovered them. Though Don’t Say No is generally not the most popular song on this lovely album, it certainly has the best flute, and therefore it’s the most popular in my heart.
