THEE MICHELLE GUN ELEPHANT -RUMBLE (Japanese cult rock and rollers IYL Who, Iggy,Ramones )CDTriad
1999 release GATEFOLD, unsealed. Includes photo booklet with English Titles and Japanese lyric sheet with discography.
Though little-known in America prior to 2000, Thee Michelle Gun Elephant formed in Japan back in 1991 and began playing raucous garage rock & roll inspired by British punk and blues. For anyone who wants something a la Guitar Wolf, this band will not disappoint. Though the Land Of The Rising Sun's other garage punk bands (e.g. Teengenerate and Guitar Wolf) almost exclusively cut their teeth on the three-chords-and-a-sneer style of artists like Eddie Cochran and the Ramones, Michelle Gun Elephant also fervently worships the cosmic live intensity of The Who and the white soul of the MC5, as well as the destructo rock of lesser-known U.S. bands like the Sonics and the Scientists
