The 5.6.7.8’s

The 5.6.7.8’s was formed by sisters Ronnie Yoshiko (vocals) and Sachiko (drums) and two other girls  in 1986, and the band is still rocking around the world in their very own DIY way.

This Tokyo garage trio has released countless singles and albums and has toured America, Europe and Australia round and round. After Quentin Tarantino invited them to perform in his “Kill Bill” movie (and on the soundtrack as well), the trio’s cult popularity exploded into a really big bang. Their “Woo Hoo” cover, featured on the soundtrack, became well known around the world as did the band, which has also shared the Reading festival main stage with The White Stripes and New York Dolls. In 2010, Jack White (White Stripes/The Dead Weather) invited ‘em to Nashville and recorded a live show and two singles on his Third Man Records label.
