Concert preview: Peelander Z is a rock band with an unabashed, genuine presence

By
From the May 1, 2014 edition

The band defines itself perfectly as “Japanese Action Comic Punk.”

Each of its four members takes on the name of Peelander-insert-your-color-here, then dawn a costume of that color.

With songs ranging in subject from people named “Mike,” to dedicating the better part of two minutes to shouting “tacos,” the group is ultimately a rock band with an unabashed, genuine presence.
