Friday Song: Pizzicato Five
Here’s my soundtrack to Long Beach la vida loco 1994, the extreme Japanese pop cavortings of Pizzicato Five, whose hit single “Twiggy Twiggy vs James Bond” pretty much tells you all you need to know about the band. Singer Maki Nomiya captures the 60’s and 90’s joi de vivre a go-go interpreted through the usual fascinating Nippon sound spectacular. Here’s the super gear video for “Sweet Soul Revue” which features the band at their most retro. Living in the LBC down the street from Snoop Dogg D was a profoundly awesome yet depressing period of my life and this is the music that pulled me through the blue days and dark nights. Domo!
