Shibusashirazu Orchestra

They're one of the most ramshackle, sprawling ensembles playing on the Japanese live circuit today – and also one of the most prolific. Last month alone, Shibusashirazu Orchestra managed a few dates in Tokyo, plus trips to Nagoya, Osaka and a free gig in Sendai; quite a logistical feat when you're juggling so many members. This shifting collection of jazz musicians, rockers, go-go girls and butoh dancers is capable of real brilliance as a live act, but their ubiquity is such that it's worth choosing your gigs wisely. While we're fans of their pithy, crowd-pleasing festival appearances, if you want the ultimate Shibusashirazu experience it's worth catching a 'one-man' show such as this, where songs can sprawl out for 20 minutes or longer, and almost anything is fair game.
