Supper from 1900
‘What on earth is this?! It`s brilliant!’ STEVE LAMACQ
‘Hilarious & bonkers & brilliant!’ LAUREN LAVERNE
‘It’s a trip to listen to and watch’ DON LETTS
‘It’s the kind of idiosyncrasy that cult fan-bases are built on, and you can’t help but feel it couldn’t have come from anywhere but the land of the rising sun’ – VENUE MAGAZINE
ICHI, from Nagoya in Japan, takes the notion of a one-man band to new limits, combining his quirky handmade instrument inventions (Stilt-bass, Kalilaphone, Balloon-pipes,
Hatbox-pedal-drum, Tapumpet, Percussion-shoes & Hattrick-hat) with steel-drum, ping-pong balls, typewriter, toys & everyday objects all in the space of one short set.
Somehow there’s an ancient, ritualistic feel to his performances – he’s like the misplaced leader of a tribe. To see ICHI live is to witness something so playful and unusual you know that you’re experiencing something entirely new. It’s fun, it’s danceable, it’s exciting.
