It's 18 months old, but I came across this interview with Yoshimi (aka Yoshimi P-We, real name Yokota Yoshimi 横田佳美) of OOIOO (and Boredoms) fame. Or western audiences might know her as that Yoshimi from the Flaming Lips song. The most interesting part of the interview for me was her reaction to the idol groups that are dominating the Japanese music scene these days. Subtitles are available in English for those that need it.

And so I have been listening to my OOIOO records all weekend. A favourite of mine is the song UMO from the 2006 release Taiga. It reminds me a lot of the Sepultura song, Ratamahatta, both musically and the stop motion clip.
