Name, where are you from?
Naomi (Jan and Naomi), Tokyo.

What do you do?

What’s the best gig you’ve ever been to?
James Holden and Nathan Fake, who I saw at the Taico Club in 2008.

Which subcultures have influenced you?
I don’t know if it is appropriate to consider as a subculture or not, but music from the Bristol Sound scene like Trip-Hop. I didn’t experience it directly, but I’ve been inspired by it.

Of all the venues you’ve played, which is your favourite?
Kitakore-Bidg in Koenji, Atelier of Chim↑Pom and I played a gig there. They worked for us on the artwork for our album 'Fracture'. The Venue stuck in my mind because the structure of the building was interesting and I had a feeling that the town Koenji created something good and new.

If you could be on the line up with any bands in history?
I’d like to perform as a vocalist for Underworld.

If you could spend an hour with anyone from history?
I’d like to lie between John Lennon and Yoko Ono, while they were doing their famous interview in the bed.

Your greatest unsung hero (or heroine) in music?
Travis. I think he should be appreciated more and more.
