- Koroshitai Kimochi by Bo Ningen
2 reviews. Write a review for us »
Finally got the CD version of Japa-noise quartet Bo Ningen's ace debut, Koroshitai Kimochi. Originally available on 10", we couldn't review it as it was so elaborately packaged we couldn't get into it without tainting the product. Well, finally I can give it a spin and boy oh boy am I a happy lad. Abrasive, almost psychedelic guitar phrases bounce of post-punk style grooves accompanied by the obligatory snappy Melt Banana-esque vocal attack. As with all good Japanese party bands Bo Ningen are keen to exploit hitherto forgotten or ignored musical genres, in this case the strange middle ground between prog and noise rock that was often explored by King Crimson. Loud, unbelievably precise and very satisfying stuff.
10/10 Simon Franklin Customer review,
Hey! Did I get the last copy of this? I first came across Bo Ningen (the name translates as Stick Men) in Mojo magazine, and being a long time fan of Jap noise bands checked them out on MySpace, liked what I heard and therefore bought this EP.I've not heard this many ideas crammed into each individual song since the first Enter Shikari LP. On track one, 'Will To Kill Will' bassist and vocalist Taigen Kawabe sounds just like YaSuKo from Melt Banana. 'Psychedelic Misemono Goya' is argubly the stand out track, whilst the band show their more tender side on the ballad 'Atami' with a lyric that focuses on how quickly can come the change from child to adult, and the emotions involved.Bo Ningen are never going to get the front cover of NME, but whilst they and other similar bands exist, the underground remains in rude health.
