Plus-Tech Squeeze Box - Sneaker Song!

Sorry for the lack of updates over the last couple of days, it's shaping up to be a pretty hectic week. Hopefully you will settle for a handful of great songs from the Japanese band Plus-Tech Squeeze Box. Their music is cute, frenetic and eclectic, mixing ragtime jazz and classical with electronics and punk rock. They are a mad scientist's experiment gone horribly right, something like Pizzicato Five hopped up on caffeine pills and implanted with robot body parts. These songs are from their first album Fakevox, but they also released an album in 2004 called Cartoom! and contributed a song to the Spongebob Squarepants movie soundtrack. I'm not sure if they've got anything new on the go, mainly because their website is in Japanese. Someone needs to dig up the skinny for me.

This was alright. Its no Poysics, thats for sure. I feel, this needs a bit more edge if anything, but then it would be a Polysic's clone. Don't need that, need something off the path.
