IN A LONG TIME. For those of you who live in LA, you might know where Senor Fish is in Little Tokyo. Well back in day it was called the Atomic Cafe owned by the Matoba family and in the 1970's, early '80s, this neighborhood bar became one of the most influential scenes in the punk rock movement. The likes of Blondie, Devo, Bowie hung out amongst the Yakuza (Japanese mafia) who would frequent the place. Click on the picture above to hear a mix by Atomic Nancy Matoba & just imagine what it would have been like to rock out in the cafe back in the day.
