"There is no band like DMBQ. They are unique destroyers of sound, and lovers of sonic beauty, existing in the places between. Masters of harsh tone and psychotic rhythm. Keeenly is an alien planet type record, evoking images of landscapes and weather patterns found in other galaxies. Purple wind and green fire.” — Ty Segall

DMBQ is a Japanese rock band from Tokyo, whose name stands for Dynamite Masters Blues Quartet. They are influenced by British and American rock music of the early 1970s, especially bands such as The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Deep Purple, and Led Zeppelin. Shinji Masuko is a well-known journalist in Japan who has regular columns in several music, pornography and subculture magazines. He is a younger brother of Naozumi Masuko who is a member of Dohatsuten. Yuka Yoshimura belonged to OOIOO under the name "Yoshico" at the same time as DMBQ until 2003, and participated in Hatsuiku Status which was temporarily formed by Shiina Ringo, and now a member in CATSUOMATICDEATH, METALCHICKS.

The new album from Health&Beauty – Shame Engine / Blood Pleasure – is their 2nd for Wichita Recordings and the 7th of their career. The recording features a large cast of musicians from the outfit’s past and its present helping the band’s founder and sole constant Brian J Sulpizio achieve his idiosyncratic vision—a sound and ethos he’s been kicking around, retooling, and finessing for more than 15 years. The new album conveys a directness and scorching power that seems to stem from the band’s live performances, whether the harrowing, droning blues of the opener “Saturday Night” or the soulful Irish-tinged folk-rock of “Recourse.” The most gripping and satisfying installment in Health&Beauty’s process yet, renowned Chicago music critic, Peter Margasak, has declared Shame Engine / Blood Pleasure as “one of the great rock albums to emerge from Chicago this decade”, and it’s surely one for fans of Jim O’Rourke’s song-based output, as well as appealing to anyone who enjoys “Tonight’s The Night”-era Neil Young.
