(Yayoi) Tsushima, a bassist; Ma(ri), a guitarist; Mi(zue), a drummer. Mix 'em up (mamire) and you get Tshusimamire or Tsu Shi Ma Mi Re or TSMMR or つしまみれ
, infamous and rocking female Japanese combo. The real deal -- good singing and playing in tight arrangements that turn on a dime, mixing surf, psychobilly, funk, grunge, traditional Japanese melodies, and more.Info
(I will admit to being completely out of my depth with the Japanese text.)

????? and ランジェリーショップ (Lingerie Shop)
脳みそショートケーキ (No Miso Shortcake) and おちゃっすか (Teatime Ska)
In the former, we are invited to eat the singer's brain. In the latter, a love triangle of sorts between a boy, a girl, and her father. Tea is involved. Mari does some cookie monster vocals
while in the role of the father.
