Extreme rhythmic psych punk perfect for people who want to shout, dance, release and feel free.
Wooed by many high-profile acts wanting to take them on tours and featured as icons in McQ by Alexander McQueen’s campaign, and works by Juergen Teller, as well as some of the world’s biggest festivals putting their name on their line-up including Glastonbury, Coachella, Fuji Rock, and Yoko Ono’s Meltdown, Bo Ningen embody today’s art/music scene where crossovers of different cultures are flourishing. They are fusing disparate sounds and influences into a fierce, eclectic torrent of grooves and bringing them across the ocean.
This journey has been a success, attested to by support they garnered from musicians spanning a wide range of genres and generations including Primal Scream, Super Furry Animals, Kasabian, TV on the Radio, The Fall, and Savages to name a few. Their iconic look is only surpassed by their intense live performances, which have earned them a place as one of the most captivating live acts in the UK.
