Humans are the only living thing which can love FOOD and love ROCK 'N' ROLL.
"Kufuku and Kuhaku"("Hungry and Empty"), people feel empty in the world that is filled with only objects and information. The 3 main ingredients departed the planet "SHOCKING" on the UFO called "SARA" (It also means plate in Japanese); these ingredients names were; Cabbage Wild, Marice and Mizevi. They landed on the planet earth, and started becoming people's messiah, "Meshiya"...
As you can see, Japanese Female Alt Rockers, TsuShiMaMiRe have found another way to express themselves.
The "Shocking" album follows a theme throughout the album with a storyline, Shocking is "Concept Album". You know, like "Ziggy Stardust" by David
" by Lou Reed, "Sargent Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" by The Beatles
or "Tommy" by The Who….you get it.
"Shocking" consists of 12 stories of Space themes. We are not going to mention the theme and stories here as we don't want these notions to get in the way of your own imagination.
TsuShiMaMiRe started their own label "Mojor Records" in Japan and established the environment to be able to create their work without any pressure or restriction. Sound engineer Soichiro Nakamura, who was a part of Guitar Wolf and Yura Yura Teikoku engineered this album. And on May 1 Good Charamel Records will release the "Shocking" concept album in North America!
After numerous tours around the world with acts such as The Suicide Girls and Peelander Z, TsuShiMaMiRe continues to push out their boundaries and create new, stimulating sounds that set this unique group of women apart from the rest.
Good Charamel will be releasing this amazing album in North America in 2012 as well as simultaneously releasing an extended / remastered version of TsuShiMaMiRe's 2011 release "Giving More Blood" with bonus material and remixed tracks.
Please press "Play"… and that will launch the rocket. Please Enjoy "Shocking" the new album by one of Japan's most creative, cutting edge musical acts, TsuShiMaMiRe!
