Pop N’ Roll

With a slinky combination of ska, jazz and salsa, Pe’z are not your bog-standard every day band.

Formed in Tokyo by mainman Ohyama Wataru in 1999, the five-piece have since garnered legendary status in their Japanese homeland thanks to their energetic and unpredictable live performances. The band have played every major festival possible in the region, as well as headline shows in front of audiences beyond the 3000 mark, and have even made a collaborative TV appearance with Cyndi Lauper.

With 2005’s ‘Tsu Ku Shi N Bow’ receiving its long-awaited UK release, chances are that whether you like it or not, Pe’z will have you skanking your legs off in 2006.
