A couple of months back we shared the Japanese Television track ‘Bloodworm’. Now their back with the new single ‘Crocodile Dentist’, a swirling, disorientating headlong plunge down the psychedelic rabbit hole. Like a lost 60s relic of a bad trip, the song has a wild and fevered feeling to it. Urgent and spiralling, a kaleidoscopic heady mix of garage rock and b-grade horror that buries itself oh so deep in your synapses. Dig it.
The song was recorded in one take in a village hall in Yaxley by Kristian Bell of The Wytches and the band say of the record; ‘’Crocodile Dentist is probably the most garage rock thing we’ve recorded, somewhere between the Monks and the Munsters. Recorded at Yaxley Village hall, no overdubs, one take, to 8 track tape. Tim claims never to have performed dentistry on a crocodile but he has had a fingertip sewn back on.’’
The track is taken from the band’s new EP Japanese Television 2 which is out on Tip Top Recordings.
