The best kept secret in music



"Following them were Notts favourites Hot Japanese Girl, who have the somewhat distinct advantage that the majority of the band are stark raving lunatics. Their punkish, metal-laced tunes begged to be danced to, and they were the only band of the night to garner a mosh pit. The anarchic and faintly surreal mood grew throughout their set, with its climax seeing singer Ali Powers nicking half the drumkit for himself, spending most of the final song on the floor before pegging it off the stage with the lead guitarist. A truly unpredictable set, and hugely entertaining."

Legged it upstairs next to catch the band so massive they required two stages. HOT JAPANESE GIRL set the place alight with second track ‘Mixtape’ as a full on mosh pit developed for quite possibly the first ever time on The Central’s penthouse suite stage. You gotta love a band that can inspire that much energy from their audience. - Notts Unsigned


Hot Japanese Girl and The Eviltones, kept the dream alive. Fuck, they got their inner rock gods on, bouncing, posing, cock-walking, and putting it out until they earned the greatest compliment in rock: They got the crowd to get up and dance.

Hot Japanese Girl, now losing my feet isn’t so self inflicted as the place is packed and the mosh is gathering. Sounding like the Clash, the bassist was out getting lost in the crowd, mic stands were knocked over; this was real rock ‘n’ roll stuff.

Hot Japanese Girl formed in late 2009, receiving rapturous reviews and garnering a reputation for putting on one a hell of a show and engaging the audience ever since. No instrument is safe and in some incidents even crowd members have been encouraged to join in the destruction. As a result of their frenetic energetic shows, their fangroup keeps getting bigger with every single gig they play.

After a slew of gigs and festivals thoughout the UK they are now recording their first E.P and video with Notts label- I'm Not From London Records.

Word of Hot Japanese Girl spread to the ears of a Swedish film production company and they have been used as the band interest and soundtrack to a film "DezZzire" coming out next year where they will be playing the premiere in Stockholme and will be touring the UK in February 2011 and Europe in May.

They are also featured in a documentary and soundtrack to a film exploring DIY band culture and the Nottingham music scene being released in summer 2011.

Their live shows truly have to be seen to be believed, each gig is very different from the last, past shows have included live bondage, throwing money into the moshpit, dancing bears and giant crowd surfing mice.

Their sound has been likened to early T Rex, The Clash, Queens of the Stoneage and Future of The Left but if pushed will settle for "New krank art punk sleaze" - an ever morphing musical beast, "Hot Japanese Girl" will tear you a new pigeonhole!
