By the second song, "Haken," the band was furiously bouncing around the stage in unison to its roller-coastery waves of reverberating guitar noise and pulsating rhythms. Singer/bassist Taigen Kawabe led the charge with a manic, sometimes cackle-like vocal style and dramatic, wild-eyed gestures that included a tear through the middle of the crowd near the end of the set. - [Minnesota Star Tribune]
One of the most talked-about bands at SXSW this year was Japanese band Bo Ningen, due in no small part to their wild, guitar-swinging, in-your-face shows. The band will release their new album, III, via Stolen Recordings on May 20. (The record does not have last year's collaboration with Savages' Jhenny Beth but she is on another song, "CC.") You can stream "DaDaDa" from it below.

For those who weren't in Austin (or those, like me, who managed to miss them there), Bo Ningen will be back over for Coachella and then touring after. Those dates include two in NYC: April 25 at Knitting Factory and a free afternoon in-store at Rough Trade on April 27. No word on tickets for the Knit show just yet.

All tour dates are listed, along with the song stream, below...

Yes the mid to late 1980's were very long time ago. Right about the time when lightbulbs were first produced.

Mid 80s were 30 years ago Grandpapy. There was no internet then, and there were no cell phones. Yes, 30 years is a long time ago. Thanks for playing along.

Not tourquer just hoping people aren't as dumb as they sound

Saying something accidentally stupid, then trying to counter by saying you were trolling... is a strategy. It's an obvious strategy that just digs your hole deeper, but sure it's a strategy.

Don't worry 2:22... there are countless future threads where you can start all over again as "Anonymous" and we won't know you were the idiot from this thread.

Nice try 4:22, you got played. Even if you're too stupid to see it, everyone else that reads this for posterity will. Do have a nice day, you adorable little kitten.

Let's be clear. Grandpappy, whose original 'Bo Knows' comment was retarded, didn't defend himself properly. I had to step in. The troller? I'm not so sure he was trolling either.
