HQ Club, London, Sep/97
(Universtiy of London Union Magazine)
Armed with a metallic blue guitar and in a tight mini-dress, tonight Mayumi is an electric teenage pinup.
Accompanied by the bassist and the drummer, she launches off with the current single "Platinum", blowing the puny brains out of Camden's rather crappy mod-types. Ears are sonically assaulted by a mainly LOUD guitar orientated gig - don't be fooled by her angelic smile, she is a guitar monster in disguise -.
But is it possible....in this surge of massive yet fantastic guitar noise, her delicate voice floats and echoes miraculously and allurlingly -. This is unforgettable. This is more than teenage fantasy -. This is the start of something new and it hasn't arrived a minute too soon.
She is going to be HUGE. Remember where you read it first
