Still working on that hot first release.



MO' SOME TONEBENDER was formed in Fukuoka City, Japan.
Members are Kazuhiro Momo, Isamu Fujita, and Yasunori Takei.
Since their unity in 1997, the band has reigned over the
the Japanese alternative rock scene.
Even after releasing more than 10 albums, they resist
to stay in one spot and continue exploring for a new sound.
They have performed on the main stages of major festivals in Japan such as Fuji Rock Festival, Summer Sonic.
They have supported the Japan tour of GUIDED BY VOICES, The PIXIES, The Libertines, and some of the domestic bands that they have toured with include Yura Yura Teikoku, GuitarWolf, Polysics, and Numbergirl.

"Mo'some Tonebender have the distinction of being one of maybe a dozen bands of their time that really lived up to the "alternative" part of alternative rock. The group used the abrasive, fuzz-driven sound reminiscent of Hüsker Dü as a springboard, mixing it with about any other influence that stirred their fancy, from punk and industrial to synth pop and bits of jazz. This catchy, mildly demented concoction didn't bring them huge sales, but was hardly expected to, anyway, and their reputation as a hidden treasure of J-rock can still be envied by many bigger and blander acts.
