An alternative pop-rock band formed in 1994 in New York, New York. The band blends many aspects of the mixed cultures found there to form catchy, dancable songs. Miho Hatori (vocals, also a part of Gorillaz) and Yuka Honda (keyboard), the members that the band originally comprised of, chose the name "Cibo Matto" based on their shared love of food, the name being Italian for "food madness." The lyrics are composed in a combination of English and French. Other then the fact that the band members are of Japanese origin, they are in no way related to the J-Pop scene.

An awesome j-pop band that sings about food on their 2 albums. They have a song, "Birthday Cake" on the soundtrack for the game JSRF.
After I borrowed a Cibo Matto album, I listened to 'Know Your Chicken' about 50 times in a row with my friend.
