Gito Gito Hustler - Wonderful 7" - 2005
I picked this hot little 7" up a couple years ago and boy does it sizzle. Like many other people I have a keen fascination Japanese rock music and an even greater fascination with Japanese girl bands. They don't sound like anything from the West. It's a mixture of their complete abandon and the accents that make them stand out as something different and engaging. Gito Gito Hustler have a more modern punk attitude and flavor than a band like The 188.8.131.52.'s for example. As far as I can tell their still recording and playing. I can only hope that someday I'll have a chance to see them.
You can catch the Gito Gito Hustler wave by visiting some of their myspace page. You can hear a few of their other songs there. Wikipedia aslo has a little info on the band. Here's also an article from Salt Lake City.
If you like what you hear please go out and support them by picking up one of their releases from gearhead.
As a bonus here's a little video of Gito Gito Hustler performing "Wonderful".
