So since I kind of took the week off, for the first time ever I’m going to post TWO albums for Old School Sunday. Today I will be profiling the best girl group of all time ….. CIBO MATTO! I discovered these girls in ’99 after lead singer Miho Hatori appeared on the flawless debut from Handsome Boy Modeling School. In 1996 the duo of Miho and producer Yuka Honda released their food inspired debut LP Viva! La Woman. The album is extremely off the wall and ventures through every genre imaginable; Hip-Hop, electronica, funk and even punk. It’s such an unexpected album from two tiny Japanese girls. In 1999 they released their follow-up Stereo Type A, which was a more polished, yet equally eclectic album. They received help from talents Sean Lennon (Yuka’s boyfriend at the time) and GB favorite Dan the Automator. Cibo Matto broke up around 2002, though Yuka and Miho are still doing their own thing and at times even collaborate.

Stereo Type A:
