The first time I saw Kome Kome Club（米米クラブ） was through a commercial (I think it was for Fuji Film) and the band was up there singing "Funk Fujiyama". They were all there in their full, glorious garishness; considering how glossed up bands were becoming during the late 80s and early 90s, I wasn't all that surprised by K2C looking like they stepped out of a mix of an avant-garde painting and a Cirque De Soleil show. However, when talking about this band, all roads will eventually lead to one of their earliest hits, "Shake Hip!"
Now, a little cross-cultural anatomy lesson....here in North America, the hip represents either side of your pelvis. In Japan, though, one has to make a 90-degree turn. Yep, "hip"（ヒップ） over there is your butt, booty, gluteus maximus, ass. So, K2C's magnum opus can be translated as "Shake Your Booty!"....a Japanese spiritual cousin, so to speak, to a song by K.C. and the Sunshine Band. The original version of "Shake Hip!" came out in April 1986 as their 2nd single, and yep, they were pretty funky and crazy back then, too. Perhaps a bit too much so for that time...the song only went as high as No. 54.
