As far as chance meetings go, the one that took place between Japanese art students Kazu Makino and Maki Takahashi and Italian twin brothers Simone and Amedeo Pace in 1993 in a New York City Italian restaurant was particularly fortuitous. The result was a rather cosmopolitan rock band called Blonde Redhead, a name they grabbed from New York No Wavers DNA. Their sound was also somewhat No Wave-influenced (and remains so), in its dissonant, wall-of-guitar atonality and alternate tunings, much in the manner of early Sonic Youth. All right, they get compared to Sonic Youth a lot, and there are lots of good reasons for the comparison. But nowhere else will you hear anything quite like the midnight hurricane of Blonde Redhead's swirling, sharp-edged guitars, insistent upper-register keyboards, and tempestuous drumming.
