We Are Busy Bodies
The band formed in Tokyo in 1994, self-releasing four cassette albums. In 1999, the group signed to Virgin/EMI Japan where they released three albums. That year the band performed in Toronto as part of the Neon Palm Festival.
In 2013, the bassist in the group Moostop announced his desire to leave the group. Vocalist Don Matsuo stated that "I wasn’t really surprised, and knew that maybe this would happen one day, but I still wasn’t happy about his decision." The group did a tour and recorded a tour-only EP together. During this tour, the groups' drummer Pitt also announced his departure. Don Matuso and his wife Matta began focus on a new group called The Randolf after this tour.
18 months after the group announced their departure, Matsuo reformed the group with Bukka Billy as their new drummer with a touring bass player.
