Female Garage-Punk trio from Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Kill Bill’ film announce rare UK date

Posted On 19 Feb 2020 at 7:40 pm

Well I never! I most certainly wasn’t expecting this announcement! The 5.6.7.8’s are coming to Brighton on Sunday 7th June, when they will be performing live at Patterns.

AGMP concert promoters will be bringing the trio across direct from Japan, as The 5.6.7.8’s hail from Tokyo. They were formed in the early 1990’s. Stylistically, the band take their inspiration from Fifties & Sixties Rock ‘n’ Roll and have been compared to artists such as Link Wray, Dick Dale, The Sonics, Bo Diddley, The Trashmen, Chuck Berry, The Detroit Cobras and more.

They performed three songs in the 2003 Quentin Tarantino film ‘Kill Bill Vol. 1’ where they performed covers of The Rock-a-Teens song ‘Woo Hoo’, The Ikettes song I’m Blue and their own track I Walk Like Jayne Mansfield.

According to Kill Bill director Quentin Tarantino, he discovered the music of The 5.6.7.8’s after hearing it in an urban clothing store in Tokyo, hours before going to the airport. Tarantino asked if he could purchase the CD from the store, as he had no time to go to a music shop. When the shop assistant on duty refused, the manager was called. When Tarantino offered the manager double the retail price of the CD, he acquired it
