Ok i went on google to find something about this Japanese rock girl group as they are featured (as we all should know by now) in Tarantino’s Kill Bill.
Check this out:
5,6,7,8’s: Here’s where the name came from: The fifties
was Elvis, the sixties was surf, the seventies was punk,
and the eighties was the 5,6,7,8’s. Yes, they’ve been
around awhile. The amalgam of punk and surf (I’m not sure where Elvis comes in, perhaps a spiritual influence) is unique. Live, they put on a terrific show. Singer/guitar-
ist Ronnie “Yoshiko” Fujiyama is the main attraction, as
she runs all over the stage mugging like a demon-possessed pixie. I must say I miss the original bassist (what is it with all these bands not hanging onto their bassists?) who had a cool way of swiveling her hips as she played. The drummer has the nickname “Salad.” How could you not like someone with the nickname “Salad”? The CDs are fabulous, and live, well, let’s say that no matter how good the other bands are that night,the 5,6,7,8’s will be the highlight. Guaranteed. My favorite songs are “I Walk Like Jayne Mansfield” and “Ah-So!” The crowd favorite seems to be “Bomb the Twist”.
The link to their own website is:
