Crying Nut and Galaxy Express – 개구쟁이 (A Mischievous Boy) Review

Crying Nut is one of the mainstays of Korean rock and punk. Their albums formed a lot of my opinion of Korean music early on. Galaxy Express is another band that showed that Korean bands could play impressive garage rock.

Their split EP is interesting because it shows two different styles on the same release. The combination of the two bands create a great release showcasing the talents of each.

On 개구쟁이, the two styles collide together and mesh creating a different type of sound. In some ways, the Galaxy Express songs make the Crying Nut songs sound even more powerful. The history of the two bands is like seeing a first generation and second generation rock band showing that the evolution of Korean rock has only been amazing.
