Biography

Osaka, Japan (1993 – present)

Formed in 1993 as a duo by Yamazaki “Maso” Takushi (a/k/a Masonna) and guitarist Toda Fusao from Angel’in Heavy Syrup, Christine 23 Onna is described by the band themselves as a “space mondo psychedelic group.”

The sound of Christine 23 Onna is very different to that of Masonna, Space Machine, or that of Angel’in Heavy Syrup. It is based around a fusion of the psychedelic phrases of accomplished guitarist and composer Fusao, and the spacey electronics of Yamazaki. The pair are also responsible for two of the weirdest shops in Osaka’s trendy Shinsaibashi area: Fusao’s Freak Scene which specializes in vintage kitsch and psychedelic clothing, while just down the street, Yamazaki is manager of the Alchemy Music Store, a mecca for fans of noise, psych, prog and all other bizarre musics. While the music of Christine 23 Onna is experimental, at the same time there is something about its pop fashion sense that would make it the perfect colorful, acid soundtrack for trips both good and bad at some hip, astro-modernist, interior-designed go-go lounge - all shimmering crystals, glass beads, fluorescent plastic and shining metallic finishes. Unusual for any project involving Yamazaki, this one has groovy repeating beats and a clear sense of compositional structure.
