Big In Japan (Baltimore)

Big in Japan is a Lake Trout side project. Until 2009 its members were James Griffith, Matt Pierce, and Mike Lowry. Its music was instrumental, very improvisational, and ambient.

In 2009, while James Griffith stayed in London working on the new UNKLE record, guitarist Ed Harris started playing bass for the group. More recent shows have included lots of guest sit-ins such as fellow Lake Trout member Woody Ranere, Katrina Ford of Celebration, Dave Heumann of Arbouretum, and Matt Naas of The Expotentials.

Since the summer of 2007, Big in Japan (in its original form) has been the touring band for UNKLE. James Griffith co-wrote Unkle's 2008 full album release End Titles... Stories for Film and has been working on the most recent recording scheduled for release in early 2010.
