PSYCH SUNDAY III presents BO NINGEN

Sunday 24th September 2017

Broadcast, Glasgow

This year's PSYCH SUNDAY headliners, BO NINGEN are a Japanese four-piece acid punk 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.

Musically, they channel their country’s legacy of obscure, brain-warping heavy-psych: Les Ralizes Denudés, High Rise, Sweet and Honey and Flower Travellin’ Band all traceable beneath their esoteric sound. It’s evident from the place they had all found themselves in their twenties however that they were in the mood for discovery: they regurgitated their tastes in Acid Folk and Noise and hurled them into the electric cataclysm too. Though challenging to process, any cautious, sensible listeners were saved by a weighty dose of Sabbath and Nirvana.

They’ve released 3 fantastic albums and have toured with Primal Scream, collaborated with Savages, earning widespread acclaim from the likes of The Quietus, DIY, Line of Best Fit and The New York Times. To them “Being ‘psychedelic’ means to stand quietly / loudly in the middle of interzone and stare at both sides at once”.
