Psydoll are a cyberpunk band.[1] They formed in Tokyo in 1997 and incorporate Industrial and Electropop with cyberpunk imagery, musical and lyrical content. In 2003 they were brought over to the UK to play at the Beyond the Veil gothic music festival in Leeds[2] and gained some recognition amongst the UK industrial and gothic underground. Later that year they returned for a mini-tour of Scotland and Northern England. Leeds based Planet Ghost Music, home to Little Match Girl recognised the talent and signed them for their first release outside Japan. I, Psydoll is a collection of their previous two Japanese albums plus a bonus track. They then returned to the UK in 2005 for another mini-tour supporting amongst others Amen.[3]
