    label: ATP Recordings

    London-based musician Koichi Yamanoha (former frontman of cult psychedelic-punk group Screaming Tea Party) has branched out on his own under the moniker of Grimm Grimm. Yamanoha's new project is a platform for him to explore new realms of sounds in his honest and sometimes innocent style, mixing otherworldly baroque pop and psychedelic folk. Born in Tokyo, Yamanoha's stirring live performances have captured an essence of Japan and confession alike; a reverb drenched approach to the singer-songwriter format which was perhaps expressed most succinctly on his last release 'Kazega Fuitara Sayonara'/'Tell The Truth' 7" single for Kevin Shields' Pickpocket Records in late 2014. Grimm Grimm has played alongside the likes of Dinosaur Jr, Damo Suzuki and Simon Finn and has collaborated with Bo Ningen, Serafina Steer and Le Volume Courbe. "Whimsical melodies and intricate fret-work abound" - NME. Tracks: Kazega Fuitara Sayonara / Tell The Truth / Driving Overflow / Teleportation / Last Word Is Mine / Hazy Eyes Maybe / Robert Downey Syndrome / Walk Into The Cold Water With You / Knowing / Youth From Muswell Hill
