Japanese four piece, Bo Ningen are regarded by many as London’s best live band. As well as lying at the intersection of psychedelic experimentation and cult indie guitar music, they bisect East and West, working in a medium that is the product of a much larger, historic moment of cultural exchange; they are a hybrid within a hybrid.
Bo Ningen’s third album ‘III’ was released on Stolen Recordings on May 12th, 2014. It is a rich and accomplished album that has seen them evolve musically. Collaborations with Jehnny Beth of Savages and Roger Robinson of King Midas Sound feature and they’ve sung partly in English for the first time. The album was recorded over several months with the band spending more time on the production and development of the songs. 'III’ illustrates Bo Ningen as a group with a singular vision, reaching for what they define as ‘pure music’, by turns esoteric and a no holds barred sensory assault.
