Ever wonder what happened to the original members of BEAT CRUSADERS?  Umu went on to form FREAKYFROG with ex-members of Rude Bones, SCAFULL KING, and other ska bands.  Their debut album will come out on November 4.

Listening to the video clip below, it’s hard to distinguish umu and Toru Hidaka’s vocals on the indie BEAT CRUSADERS recordings now.  It makes me wonder if umu did more than backing vocals on those recordings.  The clip for “Grasshopper’s Symphony” on myspace sounds very much like a classic BEAT CRUSADERS’ song.  Regardless I have no doubt that this will be one of the better pop punk albums of the year.
