Nobunny is the stage persona of musician Justin Champlin, performing since 2001. His debut LP, Love Visions, was home recorded and released in 2008 on Bubbledumb Records to positive reviews. It was re-released with 1-2-3-4 Go! Records in 2009 along with a second album, Raw Romance, which was released with Burger Records. His second official LP, "First Blood", was released by Goner Records in September 2010. His last LP, Secret Songs, was released on Goner Records towards the end of 2013.
While on stage, Nobunny dresses (and undresses) in a bunny mask that is often accompanied by other odd stage-attire choices, such as raw meat, weaves, ball gags, firecrackers, panties, knee pads and coats made of trash. Nobunny has released a vinyl single "Give it to Me" on HoZac Records (a Chicago label) and a full-length LP called Love Visions on Bubbledumb Records (2008). Love Visions was later re-released on 1-2-3-4 Go! Records in 2009 on vinyl and CD. Since the release of his debut LP, Nobunny has been featured in multiple magazines nationwide and has developed a solid fan base across the world. Burger Records released Raw Romance in 2009 on cassette only. Raw Romance contains a few alternate recordings of previous works and several new songs. The initial release was limited to 500 hand-numbered copies on white or blue cassette tapes. It has subsequently been pressed on vinyl and CD. Burger Records has also issued the Love Visions album on cassette twice. Once as "Love Visions" Once as "2 LPS on 1 tape w/ Love Visions & Raw Romance" Burger Records is also scheduled to put out First Blood on tape and donate the profits to charity.
Nobunny played at Third Man Records in Nashville, Tennessee on May 21, 2010, in a live concert that was recorded to analogue tape and released on vinyl by Third Man Records. On September 21, 2010, Goner Records released Nobunny's official second LP "First Blood".
