Their G/V Kim Il Du (김일두) was named 2013’s Voice of the Year by GQ Korea and GENIUS was named one of Korea's best live acts 2013 by Korea Gig Guide. They've licensed their music to CNN and taken their show on DIY tours through Japan, Taiwan, and the U.S.
"Korea is hell for rock and roll so we hope to reach an international audience. We love when people see us for the first time and get excited like: 'What the hell was that??"
Mostly they want to play loud and fast, having done so with Japandroids, This Will Destroy You, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Ra Ra Riot, No Age, The King Khan & BBQ Show, French Horn Rebellion, Jeffrey Lewis, Carsick Cars, Xiu Xiu, Retros, etc.
Their influences include Ralph Wiggum, pro wrestling, The Cramps, punk '76, pulp comics, Pedro the Lion, schlock films, cold grapes, Al Bundy, dry socks, The Walkmen, Pavement, drunk ballads, and the young Chow Yun Fat.
They have a lot of styles and hope you try the whole album and enjoy the music.
Here are some standout tracks that are well worth checking out….
'Catch a Job' (explicit) is a slower track than we normally do so it's our special baby on this one.
'Lost Dick' (explicit) is a breezy pop punk summer ode to lost penises.
'Math Head' is a trashy stomper and the rest of the album is a little different and killer of course.
