about

‘yobantoite mojo’ is a new single from Kyoto’s Otoboke Beaver, releasing on October 25th, 2019 on Damnably Records.


The song will make it’s official debut at midnight on October 24th, as the opening theme to Kansai TV’s drama series “Susumu Inomata and 8 Mojo”, a comedy starring Sae Okazaki and comedian Morita Tetsuya.

Damnably will also be releasing the single as a special limited edition 5” record.

In the band’s own words: “This song was commissioned as the opening theme for a drama on KTV, starring Tetsuya Morita from "SARABA SEISHUN NO HIKARI", of whom Accorinrin is a big fan!

"Mojo" is internet slang for a woman who is not popular with men.

So, Acco wrote this song, "yobantoite mojo" (Don't call me mojo).

We are not alive to gain man's popularity!

Who can determine “a woman who is not popular”?! A woman who is “not popular” also lives strong! Listen to your heart! This is our message to Susumu Inomata, one of the main character of this drama.”


Otoboke Beaver おとぼけビ~バ~ are a punk-rock-garage quartet from Kyoto, Japan. The band’s name is taken from a local ‘Love Hotel’ and they describe themselves as: “Japanese girls ‘knock out or pound cake’ band”.


Most recently after kicking things off at this year’s SXSW music opening party and a run of wild showcases, the band released new album "ITEKOMA HITS" in April on Damnably, receiving widespread praise from the likes of Pitchfork, Stereogum, NYLON, BrooklynVegan and many more. They made their European debut at Lowlands Festival in The Netherlands, appeared as part of the line up at Koyabu Sonic Festival in Japan.

lyrics

いかんせん難ありの女ですから
いかんせん難ありの女ですけど

モジョモジョ モモモジョ
モジョモジョ モモモジョ
モジョモジョ モモモジョ
諸刃の剣 ハッ
問答無用

呼ばんといて呼ばんといて
呼ばんといて喪女
リッスンマイハート
呼ばんといて呼ばんといて
呼ばんといて喪女
おまえの胸に手を当てろ

いかんせん難ありの(喪女!)
女ですけど生きてる!喪女!
ミ・アモーレ
喪が明けるまでHold me tight!

ギミギミユアMOJO
さらばわたしの青春の光
さらばあなたはわたしのVIP
さらばわたしの青春の光


Because Iʼm a complicated woman
Although Iʼm a complicated woman

mojo mojo mo-mo-mojo
mojo mojo mo-mo-mojo
mojo mojo mo-mo-mojo
A double edged sword (ha!)
no use arguing about it

donʼt call me- donʼt call me-
donʼt call me mojo
LISTEN TO MY HEART
donʼt call me- donʼt call me -
donʼt call me mojo
place your hand on your heart

a complicated (unpopular woman!)
Iʼm a woman but still alive! Unpopular woman!
mi amore
Until mourning is over HOLD ME TIGHT!

gimme gimme your MOJO
farewell to the light of my youth
farewell you are my VIP
farewell to the light of my youth

*'mojo' - common internet slang used to denote a woman who is 'unpopular' with men
