Momus Back in Tokyo


Momus will be back in Japan this September, and he’ll be playing a few shows. You can get more info on his Shimokitazawa show at Click Opera, but here’s how he describes his Pin Pin Tour:

Following the Tokyo show, there will be a mini-tour of Japan in September, The Pin Pin Tour, together with Robert Duckworth. (The name Pin Pin is a reference to Shobo Shobo, because shobo shobo means running out of energy, and pin pin means the opposite: becoming ever more zingy and chipper.) Dates so far confirmed include an appearance at Soap Gallery, Fukuoka, Kyushu on September 19th, with shows in Nagoya and Tokyo to be announced soon. (News just in: Robert says there’ll be a Pin Pin event in Tokyo Meguro and also one at Tokyo Geijyutsu Daigaku in Toride — the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music. And he says be careful not to call it the Bin Bin Tour, since that’s the ‘sound’ of the male member springing to attention first thing in the morning. Wow, the Japanese really have onomatopenis for everything!)
