OOIOO to Tour the United States
Japanese band OOIOO will be making a rare tour of the US for six dates
this spring in support of the 2006 release of the band's fifth album,
Taiga, on Thrill Jockey Records.
These will be OOIOO's first performances in the US since 2005. To
accentuate the band's wild driving tribal rhythms, they will also be
the first US performances to feature the band's new dual-drummer line-up.
OOIOO leader Yoshimi P-We began her music career in 1986 playing drums
in UFO or Die with Eye and later joined him in the revolutionary
noise-pop experimentalists Boredoms. Formed as a fictitious band for a
1996 magazine article, OOIOO quickly gained attention when they opened
for Sonic Youth in 1997.
Their live force is powerful and positively energetic. As few bands
can do, they step on stage and instantly demand your attention,
quickly capture your heart and inevitably make you move.
