Kukangendai
Formed in 2006 with Junya Noguchi on guitar and vocals,
Keisuke Koyano on bass guitar,and Hideaki Yamada on drums.Performing as a three-piece,
its tracks are made through a process of editing,
replicating, and deliberate error.

This music creates a sense of distortion and places a burden on the performers,
leading to their characteristically stoic and humorous live shows.
In recent years, the band has attempted to construct and
implement a form of live concert in which
they go back and forth between playing multiple simultaneous songs
in parallel, but the flow of time as a whole manifests as a single unified rhythm.

The trio has worked with such artists
as a theater company, “CHITEN” , “Gozo Yoshimasu”, “Norimizu Ameya”
“Kakuya Ohashi and his dancers” .

In 2016,the band moved to Kyoto and created Live venue “Soto”.
