myspace band of the week


Unkie is a math rock band from Tokyo. They formed in 2006, originally intending to play one gig together, but decided to stay together permanently releasing their first album The Price of Fame a year later.  The trio consists of Tokie (bass), Yutaka Aoki (guitar) and Hiroshi Kido (drums) who have all played in established Japanese rock bands such as downy and Rize. Their second album Too Many Secrets was recorded in Chicago with Steve Albini of Nirvana fame and released in 2008. Their latest album Forest Vamp was released earlier this May and is available at CD Japan and digitally worldwide at Amazon and iTunes.
