"As if you needed one, here's another reason to go to Japan. I Excuse plays fantastic rough-and-tumble melodic punk, quite a bit like the Thumbs, especially vocally. That's great in itself, but what really lights this disc on fire is the white-fucking-hot, razor sharp guitar work straight out of the Leatherface songbook. Hear that, Thumbs? Put out a record and go on tour before this band steals your thunder. "äóñNot Josh äóñGuest Contributor Razorcake

"...The songs are pretty much a mix of politics and "stupid girl" songs. Gon completely screams his heart out on Wailing Dance and the title track I Excuse. Even if you can't understand a word of it you'll tear up a little. Yes...they're that good! Respective Battlefield's chorus "Life killing ideas, life keeps shutting me down" will make your hair stand up when you're singing along. Try and spot the Clash riff in Top Page Of The Weekly Madness! There's an Articles Of Faith cover too. Every song on Burn The Empty To The Ash is melodic and rocks completely. (x1984x fanzine)

"They formed in Japan's old capital city Kyoto in 2000, after each member left their previous local bands. Influences include Leatherface, Husker Du, Dag Nasty, Pegboy, Articles Of Faith (there's a cover of "What We Want Is Free" on Burn The Empty To The Ash) and Naked Raygun. They are also influenced by bands from their generation. Such as Lifetime, Dillinger Four, and Strike Anywhere. Their first release was a split 7" with Finnish band Manifesto Jukebox on the Japanese punk rock label Snuffy Smile. They also have two songs on the "I Hope The End Is Always The Beginning" compilation, one being a Stiff Little Fingers cover. They have played with many Japanese and foreign punk bands like Manifesto Jukebox, Dillinger Four, The Thumbs, Travis Cut, Skimmer, The 'Tone, Superchinchillarescuemission, Fun People, and The Tim Version. Their debut album Burn The Empty To The Ash is an incredible and powerful combination of early Leatherface meets the snotty, catchy brilliance of Dillinger Four, with the follow up entitled "...Is Dead" (on Snuffy Smile Records) proving just as impressive.
