“'' Leeds four-piece alternative rock band, Japanese Fighting Fish (JFF), have burst onto the underground rock scene with their debut album Just Before We Go Mad, which is an impressive collection of groovy rock tunes with heavy influences from US bands such as Queens of The Stone Age and System of a Down.''
