Pinky Doodle Poodle
Pinky Doodle Poodle is a high energy, female fronted rock band from Tokyo, Japan formed in 2008. PDP features lead vocalist/bassist/guitarist Yuria, a successful Japanese anime singer often heard in popular video games in Japan as well as on solo records and with her band Honey Bee (2004-2007).
Rounding out the duo on guitar is George, a long haired shredder/composer who brings PDP a musical sound reminiscent of a marriage of the MC5 and Bad Brains swirling under Yuria’s playful Japanese/English lyrics and melodies.
The band has released a handful of EPs in Japan and Europe and released theirfirst full length LP in the US with producer / Goo Goo Dolls member Robby Takac at his GCR Audio Studios in Western New York. Their 10 song self-titled album was released in the Fall of 2014.
PDP’s next release “Inside is Out was released in October of 2015 with 10 new tracks including a cover of The MC5s “Kick Out The Jams” and the first single, the title track “Inside is Out”. The album release was followed by a limited engagement 13 date US tour.
The band’s newest album “Get It On” was released in the summer of 2016 and was supported by a North American Tour in August / September 2016 with Detroit’s Downtown Brown seeing the band performing dates from NY to Los Angeles and all points in between as well as receiving placement in the feature horror film “Dick Johnson & Tommygun vs the Cannibal Cop”.
PDP have just completed a new EP called “Poodle Boogie” due out on GC Records this fall, the raucous advance single JUMP IN is out now and available as a digital download.
