Ruler - Gimme Some Noise
Ruler are a garage punk band from Tokyo who feature Fink, the guitarist of legendary bands Teengenerate and The Raydios. The band also boasts guitarist Azumi Omori (The Raydios/The Young Ones), drummer Rayco (Triple Junk) and vocalist Yutaka "Otoya" Yamamoto (Intimate Fags).
Earlier this year they released their debut single on Secret Mission Records and like the Boys Order song I posted a couple of weeks ago from the same label it's hellishly impressive. If you haven't yet checked it out then do so immediately.... https://secretmissionrecords.bandcamp.com/album/ruler-7
The single features 2 tracks, Tiger on one side and the song that you'll find below on the flip. Both well worth your time but this one is my favourite. I played it on last week's Just Some Punk Songs show and the chatroom folk were well and truly wowed. Primitive, timeless and a rallying call for those of us who like our music to be loud and exciting, this is Gimme Some Noise. It should go without saying but play loud!
