Editorial Reviews

It's almost tempting to label Mantako a "pop" album (insofar as a project centering around Boredoms guitarist Seiichi Yamamoto can be considered pop) -- there's all of the wild chaos and screechy collage of a Boredoms record packed into the album, but it tends to return to traditional rhythms, sweeps of clean guitar, and lightly funky grooves right when you'd least expect it to. The result certainly won't prove accessible to Western listeners, or even most of the Japanese market -- but the project does lend something nicer, calmer, and more palatable to the sort of sounds the contemporary Boredoms trafficked in, and (at least in comparison) this makes for a fairly pleasant and incredibly interesting record. ~ Nitsuh Abebe, All Music Guide

Format: Audio CD
Omoide Hatoba is/was a band led by guitarist Seiichi Yamamoto,who also played in Boredoms at the same time.

Although I am a fan of Boredoms in all their phases,Omoide Hatoba,while being quite similar to Boredoms,is I think more carefee and fun.

Mantako,like all Omoide Hatoba albums,is just a mess of songs played half seriously,sound effects,simple instrumentals,funny vocals,etc.It's just a bunch of guys being goofy and messing around in the studio and having fun,and not taking anything too seriously.Sometimes that results in a bizarre mutant pop song,and sometimes just plain silliness!

Track 1:A chug-chug drum and guitar remind me of that old Budweiser commercial with the Clydesdale horses.Bleeps,bloops,and other electronic silliness swirl around you"Goodness gracious great balls of fire!"

Track2:Sounds like a surrealist cartoon western theme song,as does track 6.

Track 4:A rollicking spazz fest with guest vocals by Eye from Boredoms.

Track14:Slowly shuffling drums,gurgling electronics,Yamamoto's psychedelic guitar lines...played fairly straight.

It's colorful,wacky,silly,bizarre and like a bag of candy,it's not essential but you may enjoy it's sugary charms for what they are.

And no matter how much you listen to it,your ears won't fall off.Probably.
