1996 Debut Reissued On 180g Audiophile Vinyl LP!
Includes "Birthday Cake" & "Know Your Chicken"!
Cibo Matto was a Japanese-American band formed by Yuka Honda and Miho Hatori in New York in 1994. Their debut album Viva! La Woman is the only album to be released by them as a duo, before Sean Lennon, Timo Ellis and Duma Love joined the band. It therefore also sounds quite different from the rest of the Cibo Matto catalogue: the album is best described as a trip hop fused with pop and alternative hiphop, and its lyrical subject matter is mostly concerned with food. Two singles were released from the album: "Birthday Cake" and "Know Your Chicken". The album was critically acclaimed by music critics, whom labeled it innovative and catchy. The package contains an insert, and is available on black vinyl.
Cibo Matto cooks up a tasty appetizer of their talent with Viva! La Woman. Like their tongue-in-cheek cover of 'The Candy Man,' Cibo Matto makes everything they bake satisfying and delicious. A diverse and entertaining album, Viva! La Woman leaves the listener hungry for more of their crazy food for thought.
