Half Japanese were formed by brothers Jad and David Fair around 1975. Famed for Jad's notorious out-of-tune guitar playing, the brothers' DIY approach was a huge influence on fellow noise-mongers Sonic Youth and a certain Mr.Courtney Love (AKA Kurt Cobain), who even counted their album 'We Are They Who Ache With Amorous Love' (released in 1990) amongst his 50 all-time favourite records.
Half Japanese will be coming to the UK in spring 2011 - meanwhile you should check out this mini-doc on youtube:
