TsuShiMaMiRe is Japanese Girls Art Punk Rock Trio since 1999. Their style is electric, punk rock, free jazz, ska, surf and funk, mixing noisy and pop instrumental sounds with idiosyncratic, quirky, often funny or disturbing lyrics.
They are one of the many bands to have become famous in the United States through the Austin, TX's South by Southwest music festival, and also through their performances at anime conventions, with the Suicide Girls, and at Benten Label’s “Japan Girls Nite” U.S. tours. In 2007 they were voted “Best All-Girl Group” by Shojo Beat magazine USA. In Japan they made a major debut in 2009 from Victor Entertainment. And then they have started their own label, Mojor Records in 2010.
Their live performance is absolutely great. They are definitely one of the best live bands and also the most powerful all girl bands in Japan. They have performed at a lot of big rock festivals in Japan (Rock in Japan Festival, ARABAKI Rock Festival, SUMMER SONIC, and more) and have collaborated with many famous Japanese musicians (Shigeru Izumiya, ROLLY, ULFUL Keiske from ULFULS, Yohito Teraoka, Sachiko Kobayashi and more). Wim Wenders recorded their show in Tokyo and they made a theme song for Cartoon Network Japan's POWERPUFF GIRLS. Their 11th Album [ABANDON HUMAN] was released in Oct 2015.
In 2017, Drums Mizue left the band on February 10. Mari & Yayoi started new “TsuShiMaMiRe” with a new drummer Maiko! They never stop!
