The band appeared in the movie "Kill Bill: Volume 1" in 2003 after director Quentin Tarantino heard their CD in a Tokyo clothing shop in 2002. The final film features the studio track "Woo Hoo" and it also appears on the soundtrack. The DVD bonus features include a full live performance of "Walk Like Jayne Mansfield" and "I'm Blue" that were recorded during the filming of the movie. The band during the filming was Ronnie, Yama, and Sachiko, however, Akiko played bass on the actual studio recording of "Woo Hoo" used in the film.
In 2004 Yama left the band and Akiko returned to play bass. However, there was a brief period of touring with Saki on bass between the switch. After that the band did not release any more material and only occasionally played live. The band has gained momentum again after releasing some live and studio recordings on Third Man Records in 2011. Since then they have been mostly been releasing covers, older unreleased studio recordings, and re-recorded/alternate versions of older material through Time Bomb Records (2). Some of the material features Akiko on bass and some features Yama on bass. In 2018 they released a song for the video game Steel Rats. A single containing songs recorded with Bloodshot Bill was released in 2019.
