Natural Punch Drunker


Originally a trio, Natural Punch Drunker formed while attending university in Kobe in 1999. In 2002, they performed in front of 20,000 people at RUSH BALL, a yearly rock festival in Kansai. With only a couple independent releases under their belts, they played in the company of bands like MONGOL800, BUMP OF CHICKEN, HUSKING BEE, Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra, and more.
Natural Punch Drunker signed a deal with IMPERIAL RECORDS in 2003 and a guitarist joined the line up in ’05. Since then, the band of vocalist/guitarist Imura Hiroshi, guitarist Ono Akihiro, bassist Murakami Masayuki, and drummer Iida Yasuhiro has released eight singles and three albums. There is enough good material to pack into NPDisc-BEST-.
