THE WILDHEARTS are one of the bands featured on the Japanese GUITAR WOLF tribute album "I Love Guitar Wolf Very Much". The following is an explanation from THE WILDHEARTS frontman Ginger:
"We were asked by Hijaku (GUITAR WOLF manager) at the tail-end of the last Japanese tour if we would like to record a song for the GUITAR WOLF album, and of course we said 'arigato.'
"Choosing a song would have been impossible, unless I already had designs on doing a cover of 'Wild Zero' with THE WILDHEARTS one day. Which I did.
"I always thought we'd do an amazing version of 'Wild Zero' since I first heard it and hey presto... the proof of said statement is unleashed onto an unsuspecting, but largely deserving public.
"Our version is sonic warfare that rivals even the mighty 'WOLF' themselves... but alas, nothing comes close to the majestic fury of GUITAR WOLF."
The album, also featuring THE D4, THE JOHN SPENCER BLUES EXPLOSION, SNUFF and PUFFY AMIYUMI, among others, is released on Ki/oon Records and is available from Amazon.co.jp.
