Nisennenmondai - Ikkyokume

"One chord is fine. Two chords is pushing it. Three chords and you're into jazz." - Lou Reed
Lou Reed would have approved of Ikkyokume. It's from Nisennenmondai's 2005 EP Tori, later collected as half of the Tori/Neij (2008) album. The Japanese trio take a very personal approach to noise rock, and at time let their psych influences show through. It's caustic and repetitive riffing, with drummer Sayaka Himeno and bassist Yuri Zaikawanot finding plenty of fury to occupy themselves with even as they cut the unit length down to a single beat. And at every moment you can still dance to it.
