TOQUIWA, it makes me happy. At least that’s how we’ve been singing the Terrorvision song since stumbling across this oddly named rock squad. Hailing from Tokyo, the band first had the opportunity of performing in the UK as support for  indie rockers The Wedding Present, who found the girls performing in the street while visiting Japan, and fell in love with their high-energy, quirky guitar sound and vocals.

Now the girls are back in the UK, clutching with them their newly pressed self-titled album, out now from the British label Scopitones, as well as the following tour date with The Wedding Present;

About Tom Smith
Some say he's fuelled on nothing but energy drinks, and that when he visits Japan, he spends the whole time engaging the ground in an all too familiar way. But what we do know is that his words on the country's entertainment and culture find their way into NEO Magazine on a monthly basis, while everything else finds its way here. Be it quirky news item from the Land of the Rising Sun, or a story so gruesome it'd be rude not to pass it on, you'll find it here along with his general posts about life, work and most importantly play. And yes, he has had articles printed in the likes of MCV, GamesMaster, 360 Gamer and more, thanks for noticing.
