Nisennenmondai are an all girl three piece from Tokyo. Apparently the band name means 'computer bug problem' which is cool enough only the implied electro hacker sensibility doesn't exactly fit here. A lot of the double ep Neji/Tori is rougher and tougher than the track I'm posting but hey, I only like the tracks on Sonic Youth records with comparatively less distortion. The pummeling DNA style drums is what gets me, and I'm a sucker for guitar harmonics...and offbeat punchiness (le sacre du printemps returns in the form of a grizzly all girl psych punk band...anyone?). This should remind us why the Tokyo noise rock scene is always cooler.
