Pom Poko

Even before the bit where a gang of rebellious
raccoon dogs use their gargantuan testicles to launch
a strike against a band of policemen, 1994’s Pom Poko
stands as one of the more vigorously outré films from
Japanese animation visionaries Studio Ghibli. In
other words, Norwegian quartet Pom Poko have
picked a rare belter of a band-name for their
own anti-conformist maneuvers. 

Between the quartet’s sweetly punky
melodies and disco-fried art-rock
eruptions, a spirit of free-firing,
balls-out individuality courses
through Pom Poko’s exhilarating
debut album, ‘Birthday’, released
through Bella Union on 22 Feb 2019.

flaSHbAck from #TGE17 in yo face, with some kind words from @nmemagazine. "Foals-like guitar riffs with frantic drumming in what proves to be the festival’s most fascinating set." Have a BEAU-TI-FUL Monday.
