yeah that's it, pure gimmick. sort of seem like a bit of a pisstake on that high rise sound but without any passion....really proficient I suppose but totally hollow. very odd that haino was playing with them to begin with, but he's been doing some really odd shit domestically of late.
having said that, the bassist is playing in that new nanjo-less version of mainliner which isn't half bad.
