Demi Semi Quaver biography
DEMI SEMI QUAVER got started as an experimental-avantgarde rock outfit featuring Emi ELEONOLA, a female vocalist of marked personality. Dressed in a bondage suit, Emi utters a weird and mysterious lyrics called 'Eleonola Language' upon their songs, that can charm the audience into Demi Semi world. In 1995, they appeared on Japanese underground rock scene with their eponymous debut album full of experimentalism, aestheticism, avantgardism, and individualism. A magnificent lineup - Yuji KATSUI (violin), Steve ETOH (percussion), TELLASIT (guitar), Hidenori YOKOYAMA (bass), and Koichiro NAKA (drums) - supports her, and they leaped into Japanese Underground Stardom.

Through many active gigs, DEMI SEMI QUAVER made their major debut with the third album '3' in 1996. They often appears on stage despite of getting less active than before, since each member can get more renowned currently as a session musician or a member of another progressive rock project (Emi has got a versatile artist e.g. actress, model, or fashion designer).

3 stars We may assume that Emi ELEONOLA, an eerie & self-assertive vocal oddity, should be forcing herself upon the frontline in DEMI SEMI QUAVER - we cannot deny the fact. Very striking and (mysteriously) attractive her rampant and meaningless lyrics are, and also her violent performance dressed in sensual bondage suits. From the beginning she always opens her throttle valve full-widely and is immersed into her self-intoxication world. For example, the second track "Love Maniac" with her a flood of her voice like a aggressive launcher is an interesting hanky-panky. Contrary to such a notable vocalist, please let me say you can take notice of her "background" by the other players. DEMI SEMI QUAVER is not only her property. No rather, regardless of her activity, an avantgardic experimental collective by the other musicians can be beyond expression - very refined and strict soundspace with various, percussive (influenced by Steve?) instruments. Therefore let me emphasize that we can listen to their stuffs, not partially but entirely, wholesomely. :-)
Thanks to DamoXt7942 for the artist addition.
