Outo is also finnish word and means strange.

I know that this post is a few months old, but hopefully you'll get this. I was wondering if you knew anything about the Outo CD listed on this site:

I was wondering if you knew whether or not it's a complete discography. I can see that it has 'Many Questions, Poison Answer', 'Half Wit Life', 'No Way Out', and the 'SHOUJIKI MONO WA BAKAWO MIRU' LP along with some other stuff.

Anyway, thanks a lot for posting the LP... I've been looking forward to hearing this!

This is also a year late.

For those that don't know, the OUTO "BEST" CD is a complete discography of the band's output. Though there aren't any demo tracks, you'll get all the vinyl and comp sessions. It was released by two of the band members, one of whom I believe is the fashion designer, Satan Arbiet (HA!).

The CD was originally released in 1999, then re-released in 2003 and pressed onto vinyl, so chances are if you find it, it's the real deal. The packaging alone is worth the price as there are tons of TOM's (aka. Kumiko Yamai-that's right, the legenary Japanese HC artist is a kick-ass lady)original OUTO and Half Wit Live series gig fylers. If you don't know her work, you're missing out!

One last tid-bit, OUTO means PUKE in Japanese.
