The Nishikado

Snowed in? Bored? Then, apropos of nothing, allow me to point you in the direction of The Nishikado by the tremendous Silvery. Where can you hear it? Why, on the band’s MySpace page of course. It mainly consists of chanting the name of Space Invaders creator Toshihiro Nishikado. It is excellent.

While you’re at it, pop over to YouTube and watch Iain Lee play Space Invaders against Toshihiro Nishikado, with charmingly little respect. That’s about 35 seconds in, and taken from the genuinely excellent 2000 documentary Thumb Candy.
