Polysics - Mr. Psycho Psycho

Tokyo's Polysics are one of those bands that I wish everyone could experience at least once in their lives, whether it be seeing them in concert or even just hearing snippets from a few of their songs. I know that their insane blend of robotic bleeps, hyperactive guitars and high pitched shrieks are not necessarily everyone's cup of tea, but deep down I think we all have a little bit of Polysics in us. That's right, I said it... we are all Polysics! Their newest album Now Is The Time was just released in North America on Tofu Records, and it has 2 new songs that were not included on the Japanese release. Unfortunately, it is also missing 2 songs from the original Japanese track listing as well, so I thought I would post one U.S. exclusive track, one Japanese exclusive track, and then throw in their take on a Devo classic as well. Duty now for the future.

Ahhhh, Sean to the rescue with my fix!
Hopefully, HMV will be carrying their stuff soon so I can actually purchase and own their albums.

Sorry to be a turd but any chance of reposting the next world and jerkin'... please.
I've imported all of their albums from Japan but I don't fancy spending another £20 for 2 extra japanese 'NITT' tracks
