The Pack Horse, Leeds
Pseudo Nippon (London)
Running for two-and-a-half years, the space became the home and hub of a community of anarchists, activists, artists and gardeners, all of whom commonly enjoyed the taste of beef eggs (a PN speciality). Left without a home, they continue their quest to play intense and cosmic live shows, as well as finding shelter for the night.
Last year's debut album 'Universal Pork Tai Chi' (One Inch Badge Records) was a one-man performance art piece exploring the absurdity of cultural stereotypes in a society homogenised. Pseudo Nippon has since grown to find identity with the fringes of society, expressing itself in the panoramic sprawl of 'Colorama'.
Pseudo Nippon was born in japan in 1984, then moved over to England in his childhood. He started making music in 2006, sounding like a madded capped hardcore J Popstar, early demos were played on Magz Hall’s You Are Hear Show on Resonance FM. Since then he has played with the likes of Dj Scotch Egg, Pivot, Drum Eyes, Lonely Ghosts, Pre and Bearsuit amongst many others.
