Falling in love with anything or anyone perceived as weird will presumably have you scorned, but the people that go out of their way to ignore your presence just because of this little quirk ought to get bent over. As their 1997 studio album Other Goose demonstrates, visual kei rock trio Guniw Tools are indeed a peculiar group of fellows, but they also revel in being strange as well as fantastic in terms of both craftsmanship and songwriting. The variety that this album possesses is nothing short of intriguing, featuring a prominent alternative sound with traces of folk, psychobilly, pop, rock, and jazz - the latter of which is accentuated by main composer Jake (you may know him nowadays for Cloudchair and gothic rock project The Mortal). For those who are into material which borders on atypical and the visual kei scene in and of itself, Other Goose will certainly be to your liking. It's recommended that you listen to the record whilst riding a giant duck atop colorful fortresses.
