How might typical Japanese music fans look if they stopped worrying about social norms? Take a look at British-based psychedelic-rock band Bo Ningen and you may find the answer.

I meet the band at a cafe after they’ve wrapped up a day in the studio rehearsing for an upcoming two-month tour to promote their new EP, “Henkan.” All four members sport long black hair that reaches down their chests and, despite one being dressed in tribal prints and another in a woman’s dress, they all look similar. Kind of like a bunch of metalheads from the 1970s … with a touch of goth.
