Michiyuki Kawashima (vocals, guitar), Masayuki Nakano (bass, DJ)
Boom Boom Satellites are bassist/programmer Masayuki Nakano and guitarist/vocalist Michiyuki Kawashima, two friends who met in the early 90s while attending college in Tokyo. Since then BBS have released six studio albums; remixed music for artists including Garbage, Josh Wink, and Ken Ishii; toured globally with Fatboy Slim, The Chemical Brothers, Underworld; and have had their music featured in anime and commercials. While the group's studio albums have garnered critical acclaim it's their dynamic live shows that transformed BBS into bona fide superstars. BBS' seventh album, the metal-oriented Exposed, has just been digitally released in North America, making it the first BBS album to be sold in the U.S.
