April 14th, 2012 – El Corazon, Seattle
Japan’s punk rockers Guitar Wolf hit Seattle in fine form on their Alien Action Tour 2012.
Guitar Wolf (Seiji), Bass Wolf (U.G.) and Drum Wolf (Toru) put on a great show.
Guitar Wolf (formed in Nagasaki in 1987) call their style of music “Jet Rock ‘n’ Roll“. This is very apt as the set was one song after another played at blistering pace and loud without any real break! Just the way you want it! I am not really sure what was being said a lot of the time, but it didn’t matter as my friends and I had a blast!
One very unusual highlight was the building of a human pyramid on stage, which Guitar Wolf (Seiji) scaled and sang from (until it collapsed shortly thereafter)! I can’t say I have ever seen that at a gig before!
Guitar Wolf (Seiji) crowd surfed too!
They played a couple of encores. The show seemed to be all over, then Guitar Wolf (Seiji) came back on stage to play one last song….solo.
What a fun and crazy night it was!
