Japan. Crazy, huh? I hear they sell orphan babies in vending machines and Hello Kitty is President. I went there once. These are some of the photos I took on my brother’s shitty camera before it’s battery ran out and I couldn’t recharge it. Some of them are even semi in focus.
I was at an all girls rock night in Shinjuku and was having one of those “I’m spending way much money” moments. In hindsight I should have bought one of the CD’s these Kinoco Hotel girls were peddling, but in lieu of having some of their music to share, I have posted something of a similar vain.
The 18.104.22.168’s, are probably the best known of the Japanese all girl Garage Rock bands. Their music is reminiscent of American Surf Rock, Rockabilly and Garage Rock, they also cameo in Kill Bill and they can’t sing L’s. I Ruv You!
