Inspired by 70's/80's alternative Japanese acts such as Yipoos/Hikasyu and more recently Afrirampo, Otoboke Beaver created their own abrasive sound that became faster the more they enjoyed it until it was at break-neck speed. They only sing in Kyoto slang reflecting the proud ‘Kansai triangle’ music scene of Kyoto, Osaka and Kobe that produced Boredoms, Acid Mothers Temple and Shonen Knife in the 80’s/90’s. Live the band often invade the audience and whizz through 18-20 songs in a set, Regular touring has built a strong fan-base in Kyoto, Osaka and Tokyo where they shared stages with Shonen Knife, Guitar Wolf, Pika☆, The Floating Guitar Borchestra of BOREDOMS, DMBQ, and BO NINGEN. In 2016 Damnably Records released the compilation album "Okoshiyasu!! Otoboke Beaver" followed by the new EP "Bakuro Book" both of which gleaned considerable radio play from Gideon Coe/Tom Ravenscroft (BBC 6 Music), Vic Galloway (BBC Radio Scotland), John Kennedy (Radio X), Dani Charlton (Amazing Radio) and Jon Solomon (WFMU). A whirlwind mostly sold-out UK tour ensued with 6 gigs & Radio X session in 5 days.
