The Wire


Shizuka Miura

Shizuka Miura, vocalist and guitarist with the Tokyo psychedelic group Shizuka, committed suicide in late January. Though producing only four albums over the eighteen years of their existence, the combination of Shizuka's tremulous vocals and the surging, mercury rush of her partner Maki Miura's guitar made them one of the most distinctive groups on the Tokyo psychedelic scene. As well as her musical activities, Shizuka was well known in Japan as an accomplished maker of haunted, ethereal-looking dolls.
