1/2 Japanese

1/2 Japanese has been played on NTS in shows including The Pentagon Faceslap, featured first on 17 January 2015. Songs played include Spy, We Are Sure and Real Cool Time.

Half Japanese is a punk rock band formed by brothers Jad Fair and David Fair in their Uniontown, Maryland bedroom around 1975.

Their quirky song lyrics often deal with monsters and the supernatural (especially as influenced by campy "creature feature" and scifi movies), in addition to more conventional themes, such as the visceral thrills of crushes and infatuations. They have stated that all their songs are either "love songs or monster songs."
