Yoshimi found a girls band OOIOO in 1995. OOIOO has it's own personality. It's music has been changing into different color even it's own music breath and regenerate itself. You can not find the balance of their music any where else. One and only existance.

OOIOO new album ***ARMONICO HEWA*** 2009.08.05 on sale

One day in 2003, I was driving around one of the less welcoming parts of south east London (I don’t know what I was doing in south east London, I have no business in south east London), radio tuned to the mighty Resonance FM (of course), when I heard a record so incredible that I damn nearly crashed the car. It was just too perfect, with its nagging two-note guitar riff, krautrock pulse, Japanese yelping, and hyperactive percussion. I pulled over into a supermarket car park to sit out the remainder. People drifted past with laden trollies, in fact entire weather systems (a grey one, a rainy one, another grey one) drifted over so long was the track; all the while I sat there, nodding gleefully. I had no idea it was possible to have so much fun in south east London.

That piece of music was “Sizuku Ring Neng” from OOIOO’s sublime Kila Kila Kila album, which remains a huge favourite of mine, as does 2006 release Taiga. Hence a new release from them is much anticipated round these parts. Given that OOIOO are the other band of Boredoms drummer Yoshimi P-We, and given the heroic levels of recording inactivity associated with that band in recent years, I’m astounded that three years still elapse between OOIOO albums, but here it is: Armonico Hewa, which translates roughly as “air in a harmonious state”. I’m guessing it doesn’t refer to the noxious delights of the A102(M) through south east London. It begins with whine, clatter and a scream, like countryfolk Nissenenmondai being pushed down the stairs. Oh what a terrible image. Don’t attempt to recreate that one at home. Poor, lovely Nissenenmondai. From the swirling synths of “Konjo” and “Ulda”, to the typically nonsensical and self-referential chants (”O O I A H” this time round) and the genius percussive nursery rhyme that is album closer “Honki Ponki”, thse thirteen tracks of dayglo space-rock are dangerously moreish. The eight minutes of “Polacca” take in everything they do best: squelchy fuzz guitar riffs, catchy call and response chants, and those tribal drum patterns.

Armonico Hewa is probably the most consistent and – relatively – commercial album of their career, and is released by Thrill Jockey in October. I’ve been thinking about this for ages, but after this and the Nissenenmondai album, the time seems right: who fancies joining me in a Japanese all-female band?
