It all reeked of a major label marketing plan. Surely there couldn’t really be a five-piece female-fronted grunge band who made their own comics. Surely. After a couple of years of definitely not releasing an album, however, the east London rockers appear to be right and correct. Enough to deserve the benefit of any stupid doubts one might have.

We’re a big fan of London nu-nu-grungers, Japanese Voyeurs. When they played our show in January, they covered Nine Inch Nails classic, ‘Closer’. They have also recorded it. Sadly, we reckon the Oscar-winning pile of awesome that is Trent Reznor won’t let JVs release it. Luckily, we’ve got our hands on it, so you can listen to it.

Old Blue Last sign Thrash Hits

It happened. The first ever Thrash Hits presents… went off with a massive, sweaty bang in east London’s Old Blue Last. If you weren’t there, you not only missed out on one of the best gigs of 2011 but you didn’t get hit in the face with a camera in the moshpit like we did.

They’ve been off recording their debut album with Gggarth but Japanese Voyeurs are giving away a whole song for FREE ahead of their cancelled tour with Against Me and F*cked Up. You can get ‘Smother Me’ for nish, as long as you whisper your email address into their ear. As long as you understand that by ‘whisper’, we mean ‘type’ and by ‘ear’ we mean ‘mailing list’. Durr.

Japanese Voyeurs
From: London, UK
Sounds like: Daisy Chainsaw, Babes In Toyland, Kyuss
Website: www.MySpace.com/JapaneseVoyeurs

Thrash Hits verdict: The grunge revival is alive and kicking right here in the UK of A and Japanese Voyeurs are most definitely one of the hottest frontrunners. Take some snarling/fuzzy ’90s guitars, add a superhot, slightly ditzy-sounding but still very, very angry frontwoman and slap two very cool words at the top of all their posters and this is what you end up with. Very nice!
