Straight out of Tokyo, everyone's favourite Japanese garage/rockabilly girl group make a welcome return to NZ this April.
Acclaimed for their raucous live shows, the band's last album was a live recording at Jack White's Third Man Records in Nashville which was released last year. Third Man also reissued their debut self titled album in 2010.
Formed in Tokyo in 1986, the band consists of core members (and sisters) Ronnie and Sachiko, along with returning bassist Yama who was a member of the band through the 1990s.
Most famous for their memorable appearance in 'Kill Bill', the band have been beloved in NZ since the mid 90s thanks to several return visits and their truly wild live shows. No mere covers band; they take a song they love and 'deconstruct that rock 'n' roll into punk music by using distortion and noise and screaming' as singer/guitarist Ronnie puts it.
Don't miss the chance to see this legendary cult Japanese band!
