LOOLOWNINGEN&THE FAR EAST IDIOTS
When did the project begin?
My band, LOOLOWNINGEN&THE FAR EAST IDIOTS, started 2010 after breaking up MAHIRUNO, since then we changed members and forms several times.
For now, we are average, popular rock-form trio (E.Guitar, E.Bass, Drums).
What song of yours is the one you like the most?
I like “A Honeybee” very much, totally controlled balance and sound.
Recenly we are interested in polyrhythm/cross-rhythm/irregular time/slip-beat, so “Shooting An Elephant” is much more the sound we make now, I think.
How do you write your music?
I love to reading a book, to appreciate pictures, as well as to listen to the music, and I translate them into our sound or song structure forcibly.
What influences do you have?
I love the Beatles, Pixies, Paul Gauguin, Henri Rousseau, and Franz Kafka.
What´s the craziest experience you have had with your project?
What plans do you have next?
We are recording a new album now, hope to go to everywhere not only in Japan with it.
Mention something you don´t like about your project.

What band, music project or solist from your city do you like?
nhhmbase, Redd Temple, Doit Science, goat, Sa-Yu, They have totally new sound, rhythm, and style.
If your project was a car, what model would it be?
4WD car because I don’t like well-paced road.
