Stompin’ Riff Raffs, formed in Tokyo in 2006, are comprised of three women — Rie (bass), Miku (keyboard and theremin), and Saori (drums)—and fronted by their man Nao (guitar and vocals).
They have been regular fixtures of the Tokyo underground since their inception and regularly tour around their native Japan while still finding time to play internationally with regular frequency.
Stompin’ Riff Raffs combine all the elements of the golden age of ferocious rock and roll without sounding simply derivative, providing irrefutable proof that despite their homeland being known for propriety, orderliness, and manners, these Nipponese can still hit as hard and fast as anyone else.
