Singer Atsuko Kamura began her career by juggling roles as karaoke bar hostess and punk chanteuse in Tokyo, performing with the agit-fem Polkadot Fire Brigade and The Honeymoons. Her arrival in London led to a spell with the situationist pranksters Frank Chickens, duetting with Kazuko Hohki. In parallel she has explored improvisation with such as Tenko, Fred Frith and John Zorn and in London alongside Charles Hayward and Lol Coxhill. She is currently also singer with Japanese folk-jazz big band Setsuban Bean Unit and performs as part of the improvising rock trio Superstrings. I am a Kamura play Chinese ballads from the thirties, Japanese folk song and self-penned material. She is backed by a four piece band including Simon King, Paul May, Matt Armstrong and Robert Storey, and on this recording by a string section.
