Cibo Matto

Seminal is an understatement when describing the ageless ladies of Cibo Matto. Yuka Honda and Miho Hatori have spent the last two decades creating controlled explorations in genre-less, melodic noise so profound it’s had them sought after by the Beastie Boys, captured on video by Michel Gondry and name-checked by Le Tigre. Since Cibo Matto disbanded in 2001, Honda has spent her downtime as a producer and collaborator with the likes of Yoko Ono, Nels Cline and Mike Watt, while Hatori worked with Handsome Boy Modeling School and under moniker of ‘Noodles’ for some band called Gorillaz. Consider yourself lucky to see them again, because if Cibo Matto live don’t make you want to start a band, you simply don’t have it in you. With The Chain Gang of 1974. MA’CHELL DUMA LAVASSAR
