About Totsuzen Danball
Formed by the Tsutaki brothers as a performance group for art events in 1977. Under the influence of the global Punk/New Wave movement, their debut was with Trio Records in 1980. Since then, they have run their own label FLOOR (Nippon Cassette Tape Recorzing), releasing albums continuosly. Later, Tokuma Japan Communications re-issued all of their titles through CDs. They cover many styles in the pop/avant-garde territory with rock band form/improvisation by guitar & effectic percussion/Apple Macintosh based computer programming, etc.

What's happened?!
Why has YOWorks collaborated with the legendary Japanese rock band Totsuzen Danball (translated as sudden cardboard). It is the magic of the web. Do you believe in magic? I do! I met Toru Matuura; the guitarist from Totsuzen Danball through the web. One day, I got an emergency call from him, searching for someone to mix down their new recordings for the promotion. Yes, OK. Why not? Oh it's my pleasure!
