Enlightenment activists from far east psychedelic underground. Bo Ningen are from Tokyo, Gunmma, Tajimi, Nishinomiya, but all met in London. In 2006 Taigen (vocal & bass) met Kohhei (guitar) at a gig and they formed the first Bo Ningen duo. It was more noise than a straightforward rock or ‘band’ sound and they performed only once – an improvised set (end up being thrown cups and cans). In 2007, Yuki (guitar) met Taigen they started to jam 10 hours a day in a studio in Hackney without any musical structure, they were later joined by Monchan on drums and the present day Bo Ningen was formed. Being ‘psychedelic’ means to us that stand quietly / loudly in the middle of interzone and stare at both sides at once.
