Rock/Alternative (Japan/UK)

 

"An ecstatic shamanic ritual: Bo Ningen are excessive, instinctive, unmanageable and genre-breaking artists!”

 

Bo Ningen are a Japanese four-piece alternative rock band consisting of Taigen Kawabe (bass/ vocals), Yuki Tsujii (guitar), Kohhei Matsuda (guitar) and Monchan Monna (drums). Though they come from Gumma, Tajimi, Nishinomiya, and Tokyo, they coalesced in London.

Wooed by many high-profile acts wanting to take them on tours and featured as icons in McQ by Alexander McQueen’s campaign and works by Juergen Teller, as well as some of the world’s biggest festivals putting their name on their lineup including Glastonbury, Coachella, and Fuji Rock, BO NINGEN embody today’s art/music scene where crossovers of different cultures are flourishing. They are fusing disparate sounds and influences into a fierce, eclectic torrent of grooves and bringing them across the oceans.

This journey has been a success, attested to by support they garnered from musicians spanning a wide range of genres and generations including Primal Scream, Super Furry Animals, Kasabian, TV on the Radio, the Fall, and Savages to name a few. Their iconic look is only surpassed by their intense live performances, which have earned them a place as one of the most captivating live acts in the UK.

Having released 3 albums so far, they are currently working on their new album scheduled to be released in 2019, recorded around the world in London, Tokyo and LA in a constant search for inspiration.
