ii is the abstract, experimental pop duo of Alex Nosek and Jon Tjhia (from Aleks and The Ramps) from Melbourne, Australia. Mostly improvising - and using an array of synthesisers, samplers, guitars and effects - the pair create adventurous and richly detailed music. Their sound sits somewhere between strange electronics, deep drone, ambient techno and guitar pop.

Following compilation appearances and short releases, ii released their first album in 2008. Landlakes is a substantial album that collected the previous eight years Nosek and Tjhia spent collaborating, and fine-tuning their improvisational relationship. Landlakes was critically celebrated in Australia and internationally. XLR8R called it "unlikely and refreshingly abstract pop" that "begins the countdown to 2008's year's-best lists", while The Big Issue said "this Melbourne instrumental duo sees them traverse positively unusual terrain, lending intermittent, guitar-led pop to a textural, ambient and artefact-strewn foundation."

Since the album's release, ii have been busy with one-off collaborations, remixes, shows around Australia and new recordings. They've played with bands including Tujiko Noriko, Beach House, High Places, Fabulous Diamonds, Lawrence English and many more. At the same time, Nosek and Tjhia's other bands - Aleks and the Ramps, Oblako Lodka, Tailor Made For A Small Room and Scissors for Sparrow - have played with The Sea and Cake, Tenniscoats, Limited Express (Has Gone?), Why? and others.


OPQ will fill Gamuso with bizarre homemade instruments, toys and their experimental, ambient psychedelic sounds.

Take the North Exit of JR Asagaya station. Turn left just before Cozy Corner and then turn right on the 3rd small lane on the right. Turn left in front of TOA Sports (very retro gym) and walk ahead for a while until you see a tachinomiya (standing bar) on your right. You can't miss it - there's a pickup truck parked inside! The entrance to Gamuso is on the second floor of the tachinomiya.
