A look at Boris promotional photography

Boris are a Japanese band who have roughly 40 releases that cover a plethora of genres; drone/stoner/rock/doom/metal/psyche/experimental/noise/hardcore and most recently, pop and electronic music.  I was browsing their photo album on last.fm and noticed that they have consistently fantastic promo shots.  If anyone knows who took these photos I would love to know/credit them.  Click for larger versions.

"Feedbacker" (2003)

if an Orange stack drones in a forest and there's no one there to hear it, it still makes a fucking loud noise

"The Thing Which Solomon Overlooked" (2004)

"Pink" (2005)

more Orange stack love

"Smile" (2008)

If you’re interested in listening to Boris the compilation “Variations” is a good place to start.  I’ve not seen it available for sale outside Japan so I’ll assume it’s OK to link a copy, courtesy of the excellent Music for the Masses.
