Kiiiiiii

Kiiiiiii

Kiiiiiii might be the biggest wtf moment since like ever. There’s a lot to say about this band but I’ll keep it simple: you must check them out. You’re either going to instantly love or instantly hate. There is no middle ground. Total Japan art rock gone… extreme. This is a lazy comparison that isn’t even exactly fair: but Kiiiiiii makes Mu look tame sane.

If you are over the age of 3, you might not know that “Four Little Joeys” is actually a cover of a Wiggles song. They actually make it work.

Kiiiiiii – “4 Little Joeys” (dj codomo remix) (mp3)

Hunt for more mp3′s on Kiiiiiii’s site.

Kiiiiiii is setting off on their first American tour… starting with a SXSW date with Best Fwends, Yo Majesty and Crystal Castles. That will be one retarded night.

    It definitely does make Mu seem tame, but Mu bothers me more for some reason….

    I think kiiiiiii is more of a Mu meets preschool songs cuz brown girl is a Raffi cover!

    wacky/tacky good though! xo

    wow, i was just looking at their artwork..

    or someone's artwork from japan called "kiiiiiiii" that also does music.

    it's part of my new adapter obsession.

    Yeah, fucked up japanese people… I have an old cover they have done of Brown Girl in The Ring… the WTF-meter is of the scale!

    Wheeeeeeeeeeeeee!

    Yeah, this would mae an awesome/hyperactive/epileptic-seizure-inducing video.

    If I was directing, I'd have the girls giving lap dances to The Wiggles. Why? To mess up a little kids head.

    Ha.
