Live Video: Trippple Nippples at a disused hospital in Tokyo

On the night of the 31st of October (Halloween), 2011, Japanese electro-punk group Trippple Nippples played a gig at an "art event" held in a disused hospital in Shinjuku. I went there to interview the avant-garde art group ChimPom who were also participating. The building's electricity had been cut off and the building was immersed in general darkness but power was available from mobile generators. Trippple Nippples's performance was held in a dark, crowded basement, so, all in all, hardly ideal filming conditions, but I think this short excerpt manages to catch some of their weirdness and energy.
