Hakuchi formed in autumn 2009 as the joyous enterprise of guitarist/vocalist Haraguchi and bassist Maru in Chiyoda-cho, Kanzaki City, Saga, with the current lineup completed in 2010 by the arrival of drummer An.
They play a kind of ferociously energetic postpunk junk, with their debut album Chindon DING DONG! ~ Minokurui March ~ featuring twelve songs in under 25 minutes -- short, unexpectedly pop songs from a band who have gained notoriety and acclaim on the live circuit for "finishing quickly so you don't get bored".
Joining them at this Tokyo release party is an eccentric,
experimental, explosive lineup of acts — a sonic carnival from an alternate universe where pop music is an act of sacrificial tribute to the twin gods of Duchamp and Jarry.
Join us on the march towards madness — there is nothing here for you now.
(Please note, this event is NO SMOKING inside the venue.)
