I’ve never seen audiences consistently react to a band as they do to Toquiwa. I knew we had to work with them as soon as I saw them! - David GedgeToquiwa are the first signing to the Scopitones label not to feature Wedding Present members. Formerly the Pinky Piglets, Toquiwa are an all-girl rock band who have already conquered their native Japan and who released their debut UK album TOQUIWA [on limited edition CD and digital download] via Scopitones on 22 October 2012.
Toquiwa have already released a series of albums in Japan, won honours in a global 'battle of the bands' competition and had their music featured as a TV series theme tune. David Gedge saw them in Tokyo and was struck by the audience reaction and their musical prowess. The band were swiftly invited by David to play his ‘At The Edge Of The Sea’ festival and support The Wedding Present in Europe and North America.
