SPOTLIGHT ARTIST! Today’s Spotlight Artist is a Japanese Punk/Garage outfit that probably needs no introduction. They’ve been around since 1987 and they are from Nagasaki, Japan. Their name is Guitarwolf and they are known for songs with piercing vocals and an extremely loud style of noise-influenced punk which emphasizes heavy distortion and feedback. They coined the phrase “jet rock ‘n’ roll”, which they also use to describe their musical style. Here is their latest.
