Enlightenment activists from far east psychedelic underground, Bo Ningen are from Tokyo, Gunmma, Tajimi, Nishinomiya, but all met in London after locking themselves in a Hackney studio for 10 hours a day. Musically, they channel their country’s legacy of obscure, brain-warping heavy-psych. Les Ralizes Denudés, High Rise, Sweet and Honey and Flower Travellin’ Band are all traceable beneath their esoteric sound.The Vinyl Factory has partnered American multi-media artist Doug Aitken and the Barbican to bring his acclaimed ‘Station to Station: A 30 Day Happening’ to the UK for a month-long, building-wide, art intervention, from Saturday 27 June – Sunday 26 July.
For the duration of the event, which features residencies, installations, live performances, workshops, screenings and more, The Vinyl Factory has created The Vinyl Factory Recording Studio to provide a space for musicians and artists to experiment and improvise and has installed The Vinyl Factory Press on-site to manufacture these recordings into vinyl editions.
