You Should Already Know: Cibo Matto

By Miho Hatori and Yuka Honda of Cibo Matto on February 14, 2014

 

You Should Already Know: Cibo Matto

WHEN WE KNEW WE WERE GOING TO MAKE IT AS A BAND


When we played the first show.  


THE HIGH POINT OF OUR CAREER


Now.  


THE LOW POINT OF OUR CAREER


Before we started.  

 



THE FUNNIEST THING A JOURNALIST EVER WROTE ABOUT US


Nothing has been super funny. It all tends to be rather serious. I dream to be interviewed by Russell Brand, Margaret Cho or Fred Armisen.  YUKA HONDA


"Ninja Turtles are our cousins."  MIHO HATORI


WHEN THE JOURNALISTS GOT IT RIGHT


That I’m a total snob about my ramen.  YUKA HONDA


"What kind of food do you hate?"  MIHO HATORI

 


BEST SHOW EVER


Opening up for Butthole Surfers after the day Miho yelled to their audience “FUCK YOU!”  


WORST SHOW EVER


Opening up for Butthole Surfers until the day Miho told their audience “FUCK YOU!”  


HOW WE'RE MOST LIKELY TO BE REMEMBERED


Two Japanese girls. Plus…food band.  


HOW WE'D LIKE TO BE REMEMBERED


One love bomb. 


THE BEST SONG WE EVER WROTE


“Empty Pool,” because it fills us up to the brim.
