AGMP presents direct from Japan
+ special guests: THE MASONICS
Female Garage-Punk Trio from Quentin Tarantino's 'Kill Bill' film announce rare UK date.
The 188.8.131.52's hail from Tokyo, Japan and were formed in the early 1990's. Stylistically, the band take their inspiration from Fifties & Sixties Rock 'n' Roll and have been compared to artists such as Link Wray, Dick Dale, The Sonics, Bo Diddley, The Trashmen, Chuck Berry, The Detroit Cobras and more.
They performed three songs in the 2003 Quentin Tarantino film 'Kill Bill Vol. 1' where they performed covers of The Rock-a-Teens song "Woo Hoo", The Ikettes song "I'm Blue" and their own track "I Walk Like Jayne Mansfield".
