Half Japanese: Greatest Hits

Genre: Reissues, Rock; Producer (group): Safe House; Status: In Season

Combine 110 percent inspiration with -10 percent talent and you’ve got Half Japanese’s squeaky-voiced cofounder-leader Jad Fair. In this 18-year, 68-song retrospective, the guitarist-along with a guest lineup that includes saxist John Zorn and Velvet Underground drummer Maureen Tucker-explores his twin obsessions: puppy love and monster flicks. Somewhat rough on the ears, but undeniably easy on the heart.
