Stompin' Riffraffs

Friday 9 November 2018

Japanese 4 piece rock ’n roll, garage band, Stompin' Riffraffs, head to Australia for the first time with a whirlwind visit in early November. While in Melbourne they swing by the PBS studios for a Studio 5 Live session on Twistin' Fever.

Formed in Tokyo in 2006, Stompin' Riffraffs, is Rie (bass), Miku (keyboard and theremin), and Saori (drums)—and frontman Nao (guitar and vocals).

They are regular fixtures of the Tokyo underground since their inception and regularly tour around their native Japan while still finding time to play internationally with regular frequency. Stompin' Riffraffs combine all the elements of the golden age of ferocious rock and roll without sounding simply derivative, providing irrefutable proof that despite their homeland being known for propriety, orderliness, and manners, these Nipponese can still hit as hard and fast as anyone else.

Listen back to Twistin' Fever for a Studio 5 Live with the Stompin' Riffraffs. Proudly brought to you by Mountain Goat.
