Highly recommended.

Cult classic of avant-punk from turn of the '80s Japan. 
"No Chocolate" boasts the band's most definitive punk moment. Recorded live at a long-forgotten gig, this raucous declaration of anti-consumerism could be said to be the band’s most crazed Talking Heads impersonation. Memi alternates between bloodcurdling ululations and deadpan, disaffected talk-singing backed with stabbing pianos, NYC art rock guitar worship, Hidekazu Ishii's robotic bass lines, and Jun Iwasaki's tantrumming drums. Just as captivating is the flip side, the home-recorded "Dream's Dream," a beautiful song featuring Memi's hypnotic vocals dancing with Tohru Saitoh's oscillating, flanking synths.
