Tokyo Pinsalocks "Plutonium EP" Now on Japanfiles.Com


May 7, 2007 (Las Vegas, NV) – All-female electro-rock trio Tokyo Pinsalocks debuts on today with their new 5-song release, Plutonium EP.

Formed in Tokyo in 2000, tokyo pinsalocks fuse fresh rhythms with the psychedelic vocal stylings of singer/keyboardist Naoko, mashed through vocal filters to create a retro-futuristic new-wave meltdown.

Since their formation, tokyo pinsalocks have played innumerable shows around Japan, including Sapporo's revered Rising Sun Rock Festival. In February 2007 they took their music to England for a week-long tour, gaining them an instant British fanbase.

"We created the word 'pinsalocks' by combining 'pinsalo' and 'rocks'. Pinsalo is a Japanese abbreviation for 'pink salon' (blowjob bar). There's a pinsalo in the same building as our rehearsal studio and our university was in the middle of a red light district, we named ourselves tokyo pinsalocks."

tokyo pinsalocks is: Hisayo (bass, backing vocals) – Naoko (vocals, keyboard) – Reiko (drums, programming)
