Spastic, Japanese punk & noise-rock girl-group on vinyl for the 1st time. “Kero Kero Kero” was recorded by EX-GIRL and released back in 1999 but it was only on CD and only in Japan. It quickly got the attention of Mike Patton and Jello Biafra who both signed EX-GIRL to their own record labels but “Kero Kero Kero” remained a lost treasure for almost 20 years. SECRET RECORDS has given it the remastered vinyl treatment on! All hand-numbered and include digital download codes, get your copy now!
