Destroy 2 (sometimes called Eye & Chew) was a short-lived Japanese noise rock band. Consisting of only two members, Yamantaka Eye of Boredoms (vocals) and Chew Hasegawa of Corrupted (drums), they released one infamous recording in 1996 called We Are Voice and Rhythm Only. This was actually a live recording of a concert in Osaka done as a support for Brutal Truth on their Japanese tour in February 1995. Running for little over 10 minutes, it nevertheless features 48 songs, the longest of which is "24H?" (39 seconds). Note that the song running times also include audience cheering and an introduction ("Next song is...") by Eye at the beginning and Eye's obligatory cry of "Fankoo!" ("Thank you") at the end. Apart from that, the songs consist mostly of Chew attacking his drum set and Eye screaming the track titles in Engrish at the top of his lungs, generally creating a lot of feedback (which is sometimes mistaken for guitars). The album also includes two cover versions: "Beastie Boys" (from the early Beastie Boys EP Pollywog Stew) and "Nazi Punks Fuck Off!" (originally by Dead Kennedys), although the vocals of these have been sped up somewhat (and the songs reduced to one verse and one chorus) to fit into 18 and 17 seconds, respectively.
