  1. 😭😭😭 one of my favorite bands ever hope he finds happiness in his new career, whatever it is
  2. it sucks but it was the right decision hang in there, guys! stay safe
  3. 10 was 10 years ago. I'm still trying to process that.
  4. they don't really tour that much, so it's not like they are being overworked by their label. a single every 3 months is ok, it's important to keep a steady flow of releases in this scene to keep the fans engaged. i just think they have what it takes to come up with a nice album. OR, a concise killer mini. i'll take that.
  5. it's really impressive how cool and clear-cut their art direction is. just give us an album already, you cowards! and tour during the fall, pls.
  6. Have fun, record hunting in Japan is awesome. Just a reminder that th PureSound store in Tokyo has changed quite a bit. They are now also renting/selling movies and idol stuff. It used to be bigger but still has a lot of stuff by the major bands. Selection for indies groups dwindled a lot. The Osaka store is my fav one. It's huge and it pretty much had everything. Can't go wrong with Closet Child and the Shinjuku branch of Book-Off has a pretty nice visual selection. Avoid Disk Union like the plague! Overpriced af.
  7. ugh, this is amazing! his first solo album is one of my favorites records from '09.
  8. the new MUCC album is fun! there's at least 3 really, really good songs in there. sign me up for the tour this year, pls

      Can't wait for it to arrive. I bundled a ton of recently released CD's in one shipment so I have to wait until next month.


      How's that piano sounding? I was really excited to see Yoshida Tooru working with them.

    Oh, I like where this is going. I have a ton, but here a couple of really safe picks that I need to name: the GOAT X has a ton of really, really memorable solos, but this is my favorite. X - Silent Jealousy One of my all time favorites. Kouichi is a GOD. Don't ever forget it. Laputa - Breath PIMP SUGIZO THE GAWD SUGIZO - SUPER LOVE and lastly (oooooh, I should have included LASTLY...) 華月 gives us a solo to remember in lost graduation

    oh boy, they look gorgeous. きょうのすけ is just too cool, man.
  11. TøRU, 和泉, 華凛 AND my boy 豪? Sign me up! edit: not really feeling this song. It's like 和泉 and TøRU's styles got jumbled together and nothing really good came out of it. But I'll keep my eye on them, for sure. And it hurts seeing TøRU listed as ex-SEX-ANDROID

    They look good. I've been trying to get back into them just because 葉月 and co. are pretty chill guys. I might try to see them again next year.
  13. This was a very insightful post, thanks @Duwang! And yeah, of course Timely Records is paying for the radio promos, that's exactly what a good label should do in order to push their artists. Still, I think it helps walking in FamiMa and listening to ラブレター every 2 hours. More exposure means more potential fans. And scummy ticket tactics aside (which apparently has more to do with obsessive fans than with the band itself), selling out venues, no matter how small they are, is a great thing for an indies band. It helps them gather momentum. And btw, did the old fans warm up to 亞ん yet? When I saw them last year he seemed to have a couple of fans.
  14. They are really on a tear right now. A couple of their recent singles got picked up by Family Mart radio, so it was being played around konbinis all over Japan and that really helped them. I think every show from the last tour, plus 雨の日, sold out. Keep it going, guys! Just give me a 2nd album next year, ok?
  15. Finally some info about the mini and the tours; Aaand, apparently they are also planning a "surprise" for fanclub members oh New Years' Eve or around that time, maybe an impromptu concert. I'm not sold on sheeple, but the other new song they played last month was really, really cool. I'm looking forward to that one.
