Wednesday Live: ATATA THE DEBU IN

February 16, 2011

Atatatata performed live at Kashiwa ALIVE on February 11 (my birthday!) with buddhistson, aie, and The Shuwa. And what better way to start a show (besides teaching us how to spell the f-word) than with a cover of At the Drive-In’s “One Armed Scissor”? The second song is an Atata original, “Fury of the Year.”

So who is Atata? It looks like we got another supergroup on our hands. Comprised mostly of ex-Holstein members, they are joined by the singer of hardcore band Bandwagon and a few others who played in post-rock bands. Side project or not, they did At the Drive-In proud. You can download “Fury of the Year” and “Recito” for free here (Warning: LARGE file size).


Wednesday Live: miila and the geeks @ One

February 9, 2011

Miila and the Geeks is Miila of Love and Hates and her two friends on drums and screaming sax. These are three songs that they performed live at One Koenji in Tokyo. It’s supposed to be some kind of bar but those curtains and lamps more resemble a funeral home to me. Regardless that’s some amazing saxophone work.

“Cigarette & Water, “You Don’t Lier,” “Super Hero” come from their 6 Songs 7″ + CD-R.
