Cibo Matto

Cibo Matto was a New York City-based band formed by Miho Hatori and Yuka Honda in the 1990s. Their musical style contained elements of hip-hop, rock, and latin music. Cibo Matto is an Italian phrase that translates to "crazy food."

History

After working together in the noise rock band Leitoh Lychee, Miho Hatori and Yuka Honda formed Cibo Matto around 1994. While recording tracks for their first album, Viva! La Woman, they collaborated with the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion’s Russell Simins and others, on a side project called Butter 08. Viva! La Woman was released in 1996.

They later added band members Sean Lennon on guitar, and Timo Ellis on drums to record Stereo Type A. While Viva! La Woman had a stronger hip-hop element, the new album contained more rock and latin inflected songs. Stereo Type A, released in 1999, would be their last studio album. The group continued to play live concerts until disbanding near the end of 2001. Yuka Honda went on to release solo albums, while Miho Hatori worked on latin music, teaming up with guitarist Smokey Hormel.
