About this artist

Eclectic Japanese band with its stylistic roots in psychedelia and reggae, formed in Minato, Tokyo in 1987 by Shinji Sato, Kin-ichi Motegi and Kensuke Ojima.

Fishmans went on a hiatus in 1998, but, after the untimely death of their lead singer Sato in March 1999, decided to regroup as a live band.
They incorporated many different genres and styles into their music throughout the years, like e.g. funk rock, dream pop, ambient pop, trip hop or post-rock and they continue to experiment with new sounds to this day.
