Having co-founded one of Japan’s most revered underground groups, Boredoms, in the mid-‘80s, almost legendary guitarist Tabata Mitsuru has been a prominent figure in the outer reaches of his country’s music scene ever since.Via his stints in equally influential, highly prolific and inspiring groups over the subsequent years, such as Zeni Geva and Acid Mothers Temple, his own input has been (dis)coloured by all from punk and industrial music, through psychedelia, folk and krautrock, to just about everything the avant-garde and improvised music have touched. Using these touchstones as his cue, he has moulded a style, or even sometimes anti-style, of playing that only essentially arrives from a combination of hard work, drained emotions, maxed-out energy and singular vision. He is open-minded, enthusiastic and never one to baulk from a new challenge. In the mid-‘90s he has started an effective solo career.
