About YOKO ONO PLASTIC ONO BAND

Around 1968, Ono decided to create a band “that would never exist… that didn’t have a set number of members… that could accommodate anyone who wanted to play with it.” The name derived from a small three-dimensional work—composed almost entirely of transparent plastic objects—that John Lennon made in response to Ono’s initial idea. Although conceptually Plastic Ono Band had no members, in practice it had a flexible lineup.

Yoko Ono Plastic Ono Band with Iggy Pop – Waiting For The D. Train

 

“The ‘D’ stands for death, so the thing is, you’re waiting for death, in a way. And while you’re waiting for death, a lot of things go on in your life. Separations or pain or some beautiful joy, all this stuff happens. And then in the end [of the ‘Between My Head And The Sky‘ album is] the song called “Higa Noboru,” which means “The Sun is Rising.” After the D Train, The Sun Is Down. And then the sun is rising, and I’m saying “I’m still alive.” It’s going into the new era, a new age. We’re gonna go to a new age together. That’s what it means.”
Yoko Ono, 2012.

London Evening Standard: Review: YOKO ONO PLASTIC ONO BAND, Royal Festival Hall, London

by John Aizlewood, Evening Standard, 17 June 2013.

★★★★

She may have turned 80 in February but Yoko Ono is still capable of turning heads and minds. Not looking a day over 60, as mentally sharp as ever, Ono has transcended age. She opened Meltdown 2013 (which she’s curating) with a blistering, thrilling, cutting-edge music-as-art set, which not so much pushed boundaries as ignored them. Like some cocksure 70-year-old kid, she even had the chutzpah to begin with the new Moonbeams, which started as rumination and finished in a frenzied, freeform barrage of transfixing noise.

How times change. Once reviled, she’s now an international treasure and the world has finally caught up with the music of Ono and her seven-strong Plastic Ono Band which included her son Sean Ono Lennon (“what are we gonna play next, mum?”) and, in the Linda McCartney role, Lennon’s girlfriend, Charlotte Kemp Muhl.
