Bio / info
Akaten is an experimental 'convenience store punk' band, formed in 1995 by Tatsuya Yoshida and Atsushi Tsuyama with the motto of 'irresponsibleness' and 'perfunctoriness.' They use everyday objects like scissors, toothbrushes, zippers, camera, and plastic bottles alongside real instruments and humorous lyrics (consisting of various American brand names, etc) in their live performances and studio recordings. They have reconvened from time to time since the initial founding.
