Sally Soul Stew, the band led by Sally Kubota (ex-The Phantom Gift, ex-Les 5-4-3-2-1), has a brand new single out this week! A-side "Joy To The World" is a new song with music written by Takanami K-taro (ex-Pizzicato Five) with lead vocals by Mashiro Megumi (Hicksville), while the B-side is a cover of Pete Mac Jr.'s "Black Coffee" sung by the band's other vocalist Lemon (also in Wack Wack Rhythm Band). The B-side was selected by DJ Fukutake (of the "Yava-kayō" trend). Both tracks are groovy great songs that let us enjoy Sally's signature bass lines.

Actually this single is dedicated to a great Japanese bassist who passed away in April this year, Etō Isao. Sally can be heard playing an "Orenda" bass, Etō's signature model.

The 7" single comes with a CD of the same content, with bonus "mono" mixes of the same two songs.

Konishi Yasuharu has a second Pizzicato One album coming this June, follow-up to "One And Ten Very Sad Songs" (2011).

With a title that translates to "My 20th century", this album consists of mainly covers of his previous works, of course mostly Pizzicato Five songs, entirely produced and re-arranged by Konishi. Featured are various Japanese vocalists including Koizumi Kyōko, Mizuno Mari (paris match), Ichikawa Mikako, Monsieur Kamayatsu, Ōta Emiri, Nishidera Gōta (Nona Reeves), YOU, UA and more.

Aside from P5 covers, there are ones of Nomoto Karia ("watashi ga shinde mo" and "kinō no tsuzuki" from "Karly"), The Scooters ("kanashii uwasa" from "Une Manche et La Belle"), and a song featured on compilation "uta to Guitar. Piano. kotoba.". By the way, "Gondola no uta" is a take on "karei naru shotai (The Great Invitations)", while "nichiyōbi" is a medley of "nichiyōbi no inshō (Sunday Impressions)", "okashina koibito, sono hoka no koibito (Odd Couple and the Others)" and "atarashii uta (A New Song)".

Also check out the recently released Pizzicato Five cover album "Idol bakari Pizzicato" on which several idol groups sing happy Pizzicato Five favorites selected by Konishi himself.

Various groups from Tower Records' idol-only label T-Palette Records cover nothing but Pizzicato Five songs! Featured are Vanilla Beans, Negicco, lyrical school, Idol Renaissance and onelittlekiss.

The whole was supervised by Konishi Yasuharu himself. Tracks were produced mainly by each group's usual crew, though Vanilla Beans have songs arranged by Arai Toshiya (Konishi's current programmer) and Yoshida Tetsuto (ex-Readymade) with Hase Yasuhiro (Yume to Cosme). The whole should be a delightful collection of great classics with a brand new sound.

The jacket was illustrated by Sumire of Twee Grrrls Club.
