Episode 463 – Breaking The Hard Blow from E Z O

This week’s episode of Breaking, CoreyGeek joins Seanorama to discuss one of their favorite all-time bands in EZO. The Japanese band began as a punk outfit named Fratvacker (and later Flatbacker), garnering immediate attention while releasing 2 full length releases. This popularity brought the band to America, where they reinvented themselves as E Z O. After two more American releases the band called it quits.

We discuss their beginnings, how they came onto our radar, their look and their sound. Stylistically punk, with bits of hard rock thrown in, the vocal delivery of Masaki Yamada was indeed unique and powerful, the guitar work of Shoyo Ida monstrous, the bass of Taro Takahashi nailed the bottom and the showmanship of Hirotsuga Homma put the drummer front and center.

Hi, I am Sean "SeanGeek" McGinity. And I am a geek. For me, the definition of the word geek comes from liking something so much, that I deep dive into it. Not just consuming it... but becoming it. I "geek out". Everything started with comics. I read them and studied them with a fine eye, and then started making my own. Since then, I have "geeked out" on movies (Star Wars The Evil WIthin, Hurt), music writing, recording, and performing (The Classic Embers and Dome), writing (the Symka comic and the upcoming Intuitives novel), and now... this Podcast.

Hey guys, SeanGeek here. Just to be clear, this is me geeking out on Todd "FastFretFingers" McGinity here. Todd is the GOAT. My brother is an established musician, mastering the Fretboard with a blistering discipline. If there was a guitar style, tone, pitch... Todd would find a way to replicate it. From his early days mastering Van Halen and Rush, his musical palate has expanded with forays into classical and flamenco, hard rock, blues and pop. From live performances to learning the recording process, when it comes to music, he has done it all.
