"...the arty band with a capital P"- The Brooklyn Paper, April 22, 2006

 

“A mock Japanese pop band that flatters more than it mocks, Gaijin a Go-Go plays sequin-studded ‘60s swing-rock that’s good for a laugh and a twist. The band members are mostly westerners from New York, but they all have fake Japanese names. Sample lyric: “Japanese breakfast cha cha cha / I try to be polite, so I just have green tea cha cha cha.” Sample song title: “Wasabi Man (Moog Power).” The music is as hammy as it sounds, but the grooves are intensely infectious for those who like their ham heavily glazed. Be ready for ace costumes too.”
- The Onion, 4-10 September 2003, American, Page 34

“They’re not quite Japanese, but quite anime. Sixties-stylin’ Gaijin a Go-Go shimmy their frilly, shiny, booty-twitchin’ electronica on such hits as “Wasabi Man” and “Tempura Mental.” Go-go boots and beehive ‘do are optional.”
