Love Psychedelico is a J-rock band which was established in the late 1990s. They are just starting to break into the North American market. Their trademark is their bilingual -English/Japanese (often in the same lyric line) tunes. Kumi (lead singer) lived in SanFrancisco CA as a child. More info on their USA site is here:
The first paragraph of their wikipedia entry is as follows:

Love Psychedelico (officially capitalised as LOVE PSYCHEDELICO) (ラブ・サイケデリコ) is a Japanese band, widely popular in Hong Kong, Japan and Taiwan.

The band was formed in 1997 by singer Kumi (born April 11, 1976 in Chiba Prefecture) and guitarist Naoki Sato (born July 21, 1973 in Shizuoka Prefecture[1]),while studying at Aoyama Gakuin University in Tokyo. They signed with major label Victor in 1999. In Japan they are often called Delico for short.



I personally think their live performances are much more vibrant in terms of guitar work than their studio albums. Look here how Naoki Sato plays a lead guitar solo, full fuzz, on a friggin' amped acoustic ovation! They really should record a live album.  Here is an example of their hit "Your Song" live from YouTube.
