My favorite song by them.
Here is a truly enchanting tale: I saw them at a warehouse in Philly ages back - just after the first or second record came out. Kazu had just come back to the U.S. after being deported (I guess due to Visa issues.) Just before they start playing, she timidly walks up to the mic and checks it by saying - in her very, very thick Japanese accent - "Steak. Philly steak."
It was adorable and so weird and great. They played great, but Black Heart Procession, who followed them, took over an hour to setup. The worst part is their entire rig was nothing more than a microphone and a saw. Why would it take an hour to set up a microphone and a fucking saw?
Love this band.
