Hanatarashi (ハナタラシ), meaning "sniveler" or "snot-nosed" in Japanese, was a band created by later Boredoms frontman Yamantaka Eye and featured Zeni Geva guitarist Mitsuru Tabata. The outfit was formed in Osaka, Japan in 1983 after Eye and Tabata met as stage hands at an Einstürzende Neubauten show. After the release of the first album, the "I" was dropped and the name became Hanatarash.

They used a variety of unusual noise-making objects, including power tools, drills, and heavy machinery.
