Reputation or Noteriety?

March 9, 2008

The Slutty Fringe editorial is sucker for girls that play instruments, especially if they have interesting hair – step forward Australian indie mindies Teenagers in Tokyo, who spent the last year getting word love from all the right places – the more discerning mp3 blogs such as BigStereo and the more angular printed publications like FACT.

Now they have signed to BackYard Recordings, home to Teh Gossips and Roger Troutmann revivalists Chromeo it’s entirely within the realms of being possible that Teenagers in Tokyo will crossover into the conscience of the unwashed masses who rely on vacuous Radio One personalities to tell them what they should like (yes you Jo Whiley)

The schoolboy humour inherent in acronyming their name to TIT is not lost on us either

    Thanks for this tip. I’m moving Down Under in a few weeks and am looking for new Aussie bands to check out.

    All the best,

    Chris
