We had no idea what was up with all of that, but when I look back, we had pretty good instincts for things. I was a complicated person. You seem to take a very spontaneous and Zen-like approach to making your music. Kazu says Frusciante learned of the three-piece from his "good pal" Picciotto. Some labels don't want to do that. Fortunately, Makino has been living in the states for 10 years now, and it's a relief to learn that not only can she speak well, but she also has something to say. Las Vegas may be the same.
Blonde Redhead signed to a bigger label 4AD this year. Preceded by his Afro, he bounces around stage, announcing solo We work together on all the songs. The trio — Italian twin brothers Amedeo and Simone Pace and Japanese chanteuse Kazu Makino — are absolute legends of noise-rock and sonic dreamscapes. I spoke to the members of the band at the beginning of their first big American tour in a few years. Those are the type of records that I enjoy.
