MusicMafia presents Japanese Fighting Fish

Japanese Fighting Fish

MusicMafia presents Japanese Fighting Fish

In 2009, the mysterious Ishii christened the Leeds-born, now London-based, alt-rock band Japanese Fighting Fish, and they continue to blast out tunes in his honour with a third LP set for release in 2015. 

But the Fiiish are no longer the Fiiish they once were. In 2011, the debut album Just Before We Go MAD experimented with South American rhythms, fierce vocals, and grunge guitars. 

2013 saw the release of second album, the punkier and louder Day Bombs (recorded in several skuzzy garages in Leeds and London and on a considerably lower budget than the Foo Fighters’ album at that time that inspired it – recorded in Dave Grohl’s garage, albeit effectively a high-end studio). 

Now the theatrical beast returns with third album Swimming with Piranhas scheduled for release in 2015, this time recorded at Air-Edel Studio in London, mastered by Tim Young (Massive Attack,The Clash, Sex Pistols, Nick Cave AND The Bad Seeds, Elbow, and The Beatles 'Love' Album, for which he won a Grammy Award), and injects hooks, fuzz, funk and ...SPACE... into the Fish Tank.  The craziness that was there since the beginning – yes, that remains!

JFF are likened to Faith No More, System of a Down, QOTSA, Nick Cave AND The Bad Seeds, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Primus, and Frank Zappa.
