I’m not going to lie, these people kinda scare me. Yep, and they’re here in Tokyo!
Whether you’ve heard of Die Antwoord in 2009 when they blew up the blogosphere or more recently, I’m pretty sure they made quite an impression on you, to put it lightly. I think my exact thoughts when watching Evil Boy was “There are way too many penises up in this video!”
See what ah mean? Love them or hate them, or maybe you’re like me and you don’t quite know how to feel about them, this South African rap-rave group is on some next level $hit. “The Answer” as it translates from Afrikaan, is made up of Ninja (born Watkin Tudor Jones), Yo-Landi Vi$$er and DJ Hi-Tek. Watch their video Zef Side as it shows a sample of their work in a kinda part interview, part song mockumentary. It’s just so hilarious because it’s just sooooo bloody trashy! Beware, as once again, there’s more penis flailing about.
My fav bit:
“-so….what does [Die Antwoord] mean?
-answer to what?
But wait… There’s more! As mentioned in the last post, HELLO KL!TTY will have the pleasure of spinning with them tonight at Ninja (Die Antwoord) @ Trump Room. We’ll be doing our best to Zef it up! It’s going to be fokkin crazy tonight with the likes of Trippple Nippplez, The Pitchoun Allstar djz, and more…
Here are a few remixes to their songs*
Die Antwoord – Beat boy (The Bobby6killers & Guerilla Speakerz remix)
Die Antwoord – Zef Side (Slap in the Bass vs Paranoid- Androidz rerun)
I can’t believe I let this happen again. This has been probably the 3rd year in a row that I’ve vowed to go see the Scissor Sisters in action and once again, I can’t go. I even led the charge about 4 months ago when I heard they were coming. They’re performing tonight at Zepp Tokyo and tomorrow night at Gan-Ban @ Ageha which just so happens to be the same night that Hello Kl!tty will be spinning at Ninja (Die Antwoord) @ Trump Room (but more about that later).
The Sisters and I have a history. Listening to their first self-titled album and “Ta-Dah” helped get me through some low times when I first moved to Tokyo. My poor ex-housemate would hear songs like “Return to Oz” and “Get it Get it” on loop every night without fail (smile Mel ;)) To say that I am sorely disappointed to miss them would be an understatement. I fear I’ll just go and wallow in my self-pity while I watch vids on their Vevo.
Enjoy these remixes of their latest album”Night Work”
And an oldie but no doubt a banger
Scissor Sisters – Kiss you off (Mr. Oizo remix)
Hmmm, I think I might just play that last one on Thursday… Hopefully I’ll see you when you’re back in Toks again soon. Kl!ttytronic x
