  • The 5.6.7.8ís

    Posted by Lexington Green on September 19th, 2003 (All posts by )

    The 5.6.7.8's

    The 5.6.7.8’s

    Well alright. This is why it pays to have a blog, which strictly speaking doesnít pay at all. One of our many tasteful readers, a ChicagoBoy himself, sent along a link to a cool Japanese girl rock band the 5.6.7.8ís. I never heard of them before but the tunes available on their site are pretty darn good. Hard-edged, rockabilly tinged garage punk. Great guitar sound. Pity about the overly snarky vocals. (Ya know, even though you are some kind of “punk”, really, it’s OK to sing.) They remind me a little of Thee Headcoatees, a little of the Cramps. Overall a solid B+ based on what Iíve heard so far.

      It would appear that you’ll be hearing a lot more of these girls (even though the band has disbanded). In the forthcoming movie Kill Bill, the soundtrack will have their song Woo Hoo.

      I’ll keep my eyes open for that one.

      Maybe I’ve become inured to Japanese English, but I like the, um, singing. The last thing Japan needs is more too-cute female vocals. (There can never be enough cute female vocalists, however.)

      NOTE: The 5.6.7.8’s have NOT broken up. They’ll be playing this Friday night in Tokyo and next Tuesday in Los Angeles.

      Lex,

      I apologize for misposting. I don’t really like Shonen Knife enough to miss the Great Pumpkin… now if they’d booked it on the 30th….
