Seiichi Yamamoto is simply godlike, and therefore Omoide Hatoba is akin to Mt. Olympus, only a lot noisier.
Originally a Boredoms side-project, Omoide quickly made a strong showing all their own, and honestly have put out a stronger set of albums than the Boredoms themselves (sorry, Eye).
They've changed a lot over the years from almost-intolerable to basically adorable, with shiny sonic platters spinning - experimentally winterfresh.
I simply love Omoide Hatoba, and had the priviledge of seeing them live a while back - there were literally amps heald overhead, if you know what I mean.
If you see an album, especially the last two, buy it and bounce up and down to the now sounds.
Seiichi Yamamoto: Guitar, Vocals, Synthesizer
Atsushi Tsuyama: Bass, Vocals, Bass Harmonica, Drums
Chu Hasegawa: Vocals, etc.
Seiichi Yamamoto is now in Rovo, a fine band similar to Omoide Hatoba (although more like the later, atmospheric albums). I'll make up a Rovo page soon.
