Pizzicato Five

Pizzicato Five (often known simply by the initials P5) was a Japanese pop group best known to audiences in the West in their later incarnation as a duo of Maki Nomiya and Yasuharu Konishi. The group, widely credited (along with Flipper's Guitar) with spearheading the shibuya-kei movement of Tokyo in the 1990s, is known for eclectic and energetic compositions that often pay homage to late 1960s American Pop Music. The catchphrase "A New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular" captured the group's ironic stance and eager attitude. The group broke up in March 2001. more »

Maki (angry): no, I'm not taking it
Off. I like this very much. this is me, 
You know, the real, normal me 
Wearing my real, normal clothes.
I think you misunderstood me.
Keitaro: I didn't mean to...
Konishi: we'd better get all the
Misunderstandings out of the way.
Keitaro: but maybe it's better if
People misunderstand you.
Maki (unconvinced): really.
Keitaro: what sort of records do you
Listen to every day?
Maki: I don't.
I don't listen to music.
At all.
Three years ago
I used to listen to
Hard rock and 
Things like that.
Keitaro: mmm. what do you
Mean by hard rock?
Maki: la metal, like. 
What else? I used to
Like aerosmith too.
A long time ago.
When I was in
I like the hard rock look.
Keitaro: mmm.
Maki: bleached hair.
Since that time
I've always wanted to
Live a rock life (*).
I've always wanted that.
Konishi: a rock life?
Maki: so that's what
I've been doing.
Konishi: like, sex, drugs and 
Maki: that's right.
That's the basics.
Konishi: I see.
Maki: just like,
Every day, 
Work with music,
Wear loud clothes...
(that's funny)
Mmm... I'll have... coffee.
Keitaro: did you use to
Listen to punk music?
Maki: punk? mmm...
Not much.
I know what they dress like.
Maki (to keitaro): did you have a pair of long boots?
Keitaro: no.
Maki (wistfully): oh, so you are
*that* sort of guy.i mean like you know
People who listen to this kind of music
Generally have a pair, right?
Or they have long hair
Or something. have you ever had long hair?
Keitaro: no.
Maki: so you are *that*
Kind of guy. I bet konishi-kun
Also has never had long boots.
