about

Wildly eccentric and humorous, the energetic ‘Hear The Lions Roar’ is an art rock record where Jad’s expertly thrown out lyrics remain optimistic and fresh alongside a fierce and compelling rhythm section. Featuring a cohort of past musicians from the 90’s, their dexterous instrumentation brings further depth to Jad’s songs.

The addition of guest musicians baritone horn player Lydia Fischer and cellist Sophie Bernadou brings more uplifting moments to the record including the title cut. ‘Attack Of The Giant Leeches’ and ‘The Preventers’ share an innocence that harks back to the band’s younger years when their songs were centred around horror movies, tabloids and women.

With Jad Fair at the helm for over four decades, the highly revered Half Japanese still remain “the ultimate expression of punk’s dictum that rock should be accessible to anyone who wanted to pick up an instrument and play” AllMusic
