Album review for Masaki Hirao & His All Stars Wagon - Nippon Rock 'N' Roll: The Birth Of Japanese Rokabirii 1958-1960

Nippon Rock íní Roll documents the rise of Masaaki Hirao. Dubbed The Japanese Elvis , Hirao was one of the famed Rokabirii Sannin Otoko (Three Rockabillies), alongside singers Mickey Curtis and Kei-chan , Keijiro Yamashita. In early 1958, the rokabirii buumu (rockabilly boom) was born, the first youth music tribe in the Land Of The Rising Sun. Rokabirii may resemble US rockabilly, but this Nipponese version is a more varied dish. Hirao and his bandís covers of Eddie Cochran, Elvis Presley and Little Richard are not kitsch renditions, but raw, desperate rockers. Hear a Paul Anka makeover, but put through a rocking mangle; a smattering of jazz; a twist of New Orleans; and some Japanese folk songs with a greased-down quiff. American occupation a distant memory, these boys wanted to party. The studio numbers here are hardboiled, with unkempt live recordings that really rock. Tough drums back up honking sax, in a pedal steel pandemonium with slap bass. In the words of Elvis: these guys get real gone .
