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 have just completed their first full length album in the US with producer / Goo Goo Dolls member Robby Takac at his GCR Audio Studios in Western New York, the 10 song album will be released digitally 4/22 (with a CD release to follow) on Good Charamel Records including a cover of the rock classic “Twist and Shout”.
Having recently done tours of Japan, Europe and a few select dates around the New York area in 2012, PDP is now concentrating their efforts on US markets and fans around North America and will be a featured performer at the J-POP SUMMIT FESTIVAL 2014 in San Francisco, CA on July 20th 2014 as well as performing some other select dates in the US.
