OOIOO is a Japanese experimental rock band. It began as a fictitious band for a photo shoot for a magazine in 1996. The four-piece ensemble was founded by Boredoms drummer and occasional trumpeter and vocalist Yoshimi P-We. When she was asked to do a photo shoot for a magazine she invited a few of her girlfriends to join her and created for the shoot a fake band called OOIOO which they later decided to make real. The band quickly gained attention by being the opening act for Sonic Youth in 1997 on their Japan tour.
