First video from Scha Dara Parr’s 1212 released!

Scha Dara Parr’s first album came out in 1990, the same year that Maki Nomiya joined Pizzicato Five, Flipper’s Guitar released Camera Talk, Kahimi Karie and Takako Minekawa made their inauspicious debut as Fancy Face Groovy Name, and by all means the brief, beautiful Shibuya-kei boom had begun. 25 years later, and the musical climate could hardly be more different, but ANI, BOSE and SHINCO remain unfazed – still making their decidedly old-school style of hip-hop as if nothing has changed in over two decades together as a band. “Chuuyou Heibon Punch,” the first video from 1212, features the middle-aged rappers (and DJ) hanging out around Tokyo’s Akabane area, appropriately enough for a song that will be used in a TV Tokyo docu-drama set there. 1212 comes out January 28.
