    Otoboke Beaver

    Hardcore Punk

    Otoboke Beaver おとぼけビ~バ~ are a punk-rock-garage quartet from Kyoto, Japan named after a local ‘Love Hotel’-they 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, often with guitarist Yoshie crowd-surfing whilst playing wild riffs flawlessly. Sonically, it’s crazed, deranged garage, punk-rock-pop at break-neck speed and everyone sings in Japanese, often in Kyoto slang.

    2017 was a breakthrough year for the band with premieres in Pitchfork, NPR, i-D and The Fader, astonishing SXSW/Fuji Rock debuts, a sold-out 100 Club gig and their ‘Love Is Short’ 7” sat in the UK charts for 4 weeks. 2018 promises to just as exciting.

    “The Kyoto feminist punks Otoboke Beaver blaze through “Love Is Short” with all the gravitational force of a brick to the ground. It’s sheer calamity and deliriously fun—supercharged, sugar-rush hardcore with breathless vocals, pogoing rhythms, and torrential DayGlo riffs…the fire of “Love Is Short” recalls a lineage of patriarchy-scorching girl-gang shrieks, from the Slits’ “Shoplifting” to Bikini Kill’s “Liar” and beyond.” Pitchfork

    “Their Riot Grrrl attitudes and passion for noise-rock make them stand out as true renegades in the underground scene.”– i-D

    “The Kyoto-based Otoboke Beaver takes in the history of Japanese punk and runs with scissors in hand towards the bonkers-noise of early Boredoms, Afrirampo’s uninhibited avant-punk, and the revved-up garage-rock of Shonen Knife (and maybe a little bit of John Zorn‘s blistering Naked City, just to put it over the top). Punk is rarely this charmingly vicious.” NPR

    “Not new, just new to us. Unhinged garage-punk from Japanese all-woman quartet-not to be missed.” The Guardian

Luge is Cam Fraser on bass, Kaiva Gotham on vocals and keys, Tobias Hart on guitar, and Stu Mein on drums. Together they create a sound that is both noisy and dance-able, while retaining elements of punk and jazz. Luge has independently released two EPs: Sex Cop (2015) and Actual Rock 'n' Roll (2017). And two full-length albums: Tall Is Just a Feeling (2018) and Luge (2020). Above all, Luge is dedicated to enjoying the infinite possibilities of rock music."
