Biography

London, United Kingdom (2007 – present)

‘If someone in the 1960’s had imagined (‘Space: 1999’ style) what rock and roll would sound like in 2009, Bo Ningen is what they would have heard in their head.’ - Loud & Quiet

Bo Ningen are a Japanese four-piece band consisting of Taigen Kawabe, Yuki Tsujii, Kohhei Matsuda and Monchan Monna. Though they come from Gumma, Tajimi, Nishinomiya, and Tokyo, they coalesced in London.
Members: Taigen, Kohhei, Monchan, Yuki
Albums: Line the Wall, III, Bo Ningen

Taigen and Kohhei met playing in their own bands on the same bill in early 2007 and were later joined by Monchan and Yuki. The band booked into a studio on Hackney Road and in summer 2007, after continual 12 hour jams they played the first “true” Bo Ningen show at the Wilmington Arms. They then set up their own night ‘Far East Electric Psychedelic’ at Cross Kings in Kings Cross. They have since played shows and festivals throughout the UK, Europe and Japan, notably The 2011 Venice Biennale (in collaboration with artists Tim Noble and Sue Webster), which was re-created for Yoko Ono’s Meltdown Festival at Royal Festival Hall, they were also invited to perform at The Victoria And Albert Museum’s Yohji Yamamoto Friday Late event.

They have performed collaboratively with Damo Suzuki, Faust and Savages (band).
