The 188.8.131.52’s really are “Three Cool Chicks,” as they declare in their lo-fi garage-rock remake of The Coasters’ “Three Cool Cats,” from their 2012 album, Bomb the Twist. While the Tokyo trio are most often recognized for performing in a scene from Quentin Tarantino’s 2003 film, Kill Bill Volume 1, their roots stretch back to the mid-1980s. Over the years, the music of The 184.108.40.206’s —a mix of original tunes and classic covers — has incorporated rockabilly, surf and garage styles in a stripped-down but appealing fashion. Songs range from the rootsy, 1950s-style rawness of “Bomb the Twist” to surf instrumentals like “Jane in the Jungle,” which is drowned in an ocean of reverb. Also at Pappy & Harriet’s, Monday, September 2.
