Biography

Both ferocious and intensely musical, Mizutama Shobodan (水玉消防団, which translates to Polka Dot Fire Brigade, a name they’re sometimes also referred to as) was a group of anti-glamour tough chick post-punk Japanese gals fronted by Tenko, the one time Mrs. Fred Frith. Unlike the overtly experimental doings on her Slope LP for RecRec or, later, work in her Dragon Blue band with Otomo Yoshide and Tatsuya Yoshida, Mizutama Shobodan are a direct and forceful post punk blast; Tenko’s inimitable sore-throated hectoring lacing compositions that are incredibly clever and seething with passion.
