One of the most influential bands in rock history, Half Japanese was founded in the bedroom of brothers Jad and David Fair in 1974.
Fair opens Overjoyed, the first Half Japanese album in over a decade, with the words "Refresh the life that you now have/And be the best that you can possibly be/Enjoy the life that you now have/Happiness is victory - yeah!" That's merely the first in a long series of salvos of aggressive positivity and tributes to all that makes life worthwhile on Overjoyed, which Jad delivers with the joyous (if nerdy) fervor of a true believer.
