Interview with Polysics: Universal Live Music Language

Learning about the live performance of Japanese new-wave punk rock quartet Polysics made me think about how international bands who don’t speak the language of the audience they’re performing for can still communicate the frenetic fury of all the basic emotions we expect to feel at a live concert.
