Thee 50’s High Teens
Self-titled EP, 2004
Label: P-Vine Japan


Fukuoka Girls School of Rock and Roll

The self-titled EP by Thee 50’s High Teens is an intoxicating musical brew. A mixture of retro rock, including some thunderous organ playing and garage punk with a sprinkling of the occasional Engrish makes Thee 50’s High Teens’ distinctive song style.

Sung in Japanese with both boundless enthusiasm and an intense angst, prepare your ears because most of the tracks feature screaming as musical instruments. Surprise Sun has a Leader Of The Pack type sound effect intro, which is very appropriate for this girl group sound fun tune and Blues for Tears is a little too long, but this slow burnin’ bluesy number comes complete with cryin’.

boundless enthusiasm and an intense angst
