Trippple Nippples is an electropop band from Tokyo, Japan. Famous for their unique performances, the band was formed in 2005. The artists going by the stage names Qrea Nippple, Yuka Nippple and Nabe Nippple do the singing and dancing. The Australians Joseph No and Jimi Mased perform on keyboards, synthesizers, guitar, bass and laptop. American Eddie Clay plays the drums.[1] Several of their more wild performances resulted in being banned from those venues.[2] In an endorsement deal with the footwear brand Palladium Boots, Pharrell Williams hosted a documentary that featured Trippple Nippples' live show.[3][4]

The band have never officially released a CD, but have amassed an international following. They have played shows in Australia, China, France, Holland, Korea, Mexico, Taiwan, the UK and USA. In Japan they have performed at the Summer Sonic Festival, with Mademoiselle Yulia and Die Antwoord. In America they opened four shows for Devo.
