[RAMONE-A-BES] In Japanese music culture, imitation truly is the sincerest form of flattery. Over there, bands are judged less by artistic innovation than by how accurately they mimic their chosen Western source material. In the case of Nagasaki’s Guitar Wolf, the band has been pulling off a pretty great Ramones impression going on 25 years now. Wrapped in leather jackets that never seem to come off, the group basically put its collective head down in 1987 and charged through the proceeding two decades, releasing a dozen albums of dirt-simple, white-knuckle punk rock. Even the death of its original bassist in 2005 barely slowed the band down. Its shows play out the same way its career has: loud and fast, with hardly any pauses in the action.
