Female Garage-Punk Trio from Quentin Tarantino's 'Kill Bill' film announce rare UK date.
The 188.8.131.52's hail from Tokyo, Japan and were formed in the early 1990's. Stylistically, the band take their inspiration from Fifties & Sixties Rock 'n' Roll and have been compared to artists such as Link Wray, Dick Dale, The Sonics, Bo Diddley, The Trashmen, Chuck Berry, The Detroit Cobras and more.
They performed three songs in the 2003 Quentin Tarantino film 'Kill Bill Vol. 1' where they performed covers of The Rock-a-Teens song 'Woo Hoo', The Ikettes song 'I'm Blue' and their own track 'I Walk Like Jayne Mansfield'.

229 is a multi-purpose entertainments venue which first opened its doors in 1965 as part of International Students House (ISH). The Charity opened essentially as an accommodation centre supporting British and overseas students whilst they studied at different Universities in London. Since then the venue has played host to, many gigs, awards ceremonies, club nights, weekend festivals and music related events. All profit is ploughed back into the Charity and helps funds our Scholarship programmes for students from less advantaged countries.
