Lots of interest in Sunaba, a band frankly I don't know much about. I just happened to catch them when I was recording Ikaten one night. A little digging produced this ad from the Shibuya record store Disk Union.

They were a Kansai band. They had a cassette (self-produced?) titled "Karana Karada." And the Disk Union folk found them charming.

Here's the YouTube clip:

The Kansai subculture dictionary provides some more context. They were from Kobe. Singer/guitarist Mari Hamada (not to be confused with the pop star with the same name) participated in the モダンチョキチョキズ (The Modern Choki Chokis) and is now apparently a well-known actress.
