The Routes are based in Hita, Oita, Japan. The Routes are Chris Jack (guitar/vox),Shinichi Nakayama (drums), and Toru Nishimuta (bass). Their music celebrates blues, the British invasion, and 60s American psych/garage rock, deliberately and very happily oblivious to the music of today. Check out their homepage www.theroutesjapan.com
Two 7" singles and a new CD album are due out later this year.
