myspace band of the week
The Crater is a three-piece rock band from Setagaya. Shinsuke Kikunaga and Shimose (ex-HiGE) formed the band in 2001, and Kana joined on bass in 2010.
The band’s website says they put out a few EPs, but I can’t find proof anywhere that these releases exist. However, in the process I discovered a bad-ass looking Osamu Tezuka manga of the same name (ATTN Vertical Inc, I expect this on my bookshelf next year!). Right now, The Crater has 10 songs up on myspace of varying quality, but I do like most of them. Choice track: “I Love You”
