The legendary Japanese rock-punk-jazz-experimental band, HIKASHU (found in 1978) is led by pseudo-kabuki vocalist and thereminist, Koichi Makigami, together with some the most prominent figures of the Tokyo experimental music scene. John Zorn discovered these guys back in the 80’s and brought them to fame on the New York Down Town scene.
