Product Description

Nisennenmondai means ''Year 2000 Problem'' and it is an instrumental Japanese girl trio from Tokyo.The visits to Tokyo by Lightning Bolt, Battles & No Age and others have unearthed these three girls with their mammoth sound. With song titles such as 'This Heat', 'Sonic Youth' & 'Pop Group', one understand which musical territory the band comes from, and if you add Black Flag, DNA, Neu! & Pere Ubu you are pretty close to Nisennenmondais sound. It's raw & repetitive (post) punk instrumentals, at the same time as they are wild groovy with a no wave/disco vibe to it. This is the first release outside of Japan & it contains the bands two EPs ''Neji'' and ''Tori'' released as one album with new cover design by Kim Hiorthoy.

Format: Audio CD
Garnering much attention in the West after appearances with the likes of Lightning Bolt, Hella, Battles and No Age, Smalltown Supersound have taken it upon themselves to unleash the beast that is Nisennenmondai to non-Japanese arenas. Consisting of three deviously innocent looking girls, Nisennenmondai are a noise-rock trio who have caused seismic waves in their notoriously thrill-seeking and experimentalist homeland. With strong instrumentalism and a knack for creating a `bounce', the trio drill out walls of distortion which meet with the angularised rhythmic skeleton of kraut-rock grooves. Being made up of the bands two domestically released EP's, `Neji/Tori' consists of 9 tracks totaling some 58 minutes and a few of the track titles reference the trios first-class influences.

Commencing with the `Neji' EP, the trio rock out across 5 tracks of distressed math rock which is less crushing and more melodious than `Tori'. Sounding like a raw, pre-production Battles, opener `Pop Group' is a delightfully interesting and extremely rockable take on industrialized disco-rock with its groove-laden metallic clatter soaring eagle-like into an acid cloud of cosmic-grind. Follow-up track `This Heat' writhes on an ever-pulsing bass groove that evokes images of Can meets Birthday Party whilst `Sonic Youth' and `Ikkkyokume' totally re-write the leftfield-rock rule books as they instigate a danceable aesthetic into a crushing whirlwind of psychedelic rock.

The `Tori' EP picks up the pace with its manically constructed set of kraut-derived groove based anti-rock songs which paint a picture in which the rapidly approaching horizon continuously melts in front of you.
