live on WFMU / Brian Turner's show Sept 2004 (pt2) by Afrirampo
Hailing from Osaka, Afri Rampo are Oni (guitar/vocal) and Pika (drum/vocal), two g-string and pastie-clad women who describe themselves as "pussycats kicking naked soul rock". Last summer in Los Angeles they were seemingly set to charm an audience's pants off but instead let loose a barrage comparable to the Boredoms or Mars, bludgeoning 'em all like seals. Their first trip to the East Coast finds them recording an LP for the Tzadik label, playing a few gigs as well (including one with Lightning Bolt ). More info at www.afrirampo.com.
