Nihon No Ongaku: DMBQ

SO, this is section I do from time to time about Japanese music. See other posts I have done by typing "Nihon No Ongaku" (Japanese Music) in the search box.

I had the privilege of seeing DMBQ in Tokyo a while back and WHOA! They absolutely kill people, screaming guitars and crazy antics. You have to see if for yourself. Unfortunately their drummer, China Mana died in an car accident on a US tour a couple years ago. She was also the drummer for Shonen Knife. She was one of the best drummers I have ever seen, she would throw her drums off the stage at every show and just play the shit out of them while they were on stage. They got a new nutty guy now too. If you don't know them, know them, and be sure to see them when they come to your town. Nuckin Futz! On the first video the drummer throws a huge rock on his bass drum, check that shit out!
