Otoboke Beaver おとぼけビ~バ~ are an all-female quartet from Kyoto, Japan. The band’s name is taken from a local ‘Love Hotel’ and the band describe themselves as: “Japanese girls ‘knock out or pound cake’ band”.

Formed in 2009’s summer in Kyoto, Japan, and consists of Accorinrin (Lead Vocal & Guitar), Yoyoyoshie (Guitar &Vocals), Hiro-chan (Bass &Vocals) and Pop (Drums & Vocals). Live the band often invade the audience and state ‘And you will not able to take your eyes off us’.

Having built up a strong fan-base in Kyoto, Osaka and Tokyo and shared stages with Shonen Knife, Guitar Wolf, Pika☆/ピカ(from AFRIRAMPO), The Floating Guitar Borchestra of BOREDOMS, DMBQ, Ni-hao!, BO NINGEN and COMANECHI the band are ready to tour their debut UK/European release in May (1-6) 2016.

Crazed, deranged garage, punk-rock-pop at break-neck speed and everyone sings. The band of mid 20’s talented musicians make easy work of the complex arrangements, reminiscent of jazzy riot grrrl/Queercore NYC punks ‘God Is My Co-Pilot’ or Barry Hogan (ATP) favourites’ ‘Afrirampo’.

They only sing in Japanese, and often in Kyoto slang.

Pop duo Nim Chimpsky formed on a cold November night in the Coventry canal basin. To shake off the bone chill inherent to this setting they’ve been releasing and performing high octane pop hits and jumping around like twerps ever since. Live, Chloe plays a hodge-podge of synths, keyboards and funny-noise makers while Gee provides guitar lines and scathing lyrics.
