J-Rock Fridays Vol. 30October 1, 2010
So Hokkaido Fair wasn’t all it’s cracked up to be. They basically had a few food stands right when you’re walk in the door. There were samples of squishy fish I could never identify and some octopus. I wound up having Bi Bim Bap and a Taro Latte in the food court. I don’t know why I’m writing about this here and not my food blog. But anyway it’s Mitsuwa so it’s always an adventure. I wound up buying Perfume’s new single in the bookstore and a copy of Rockin’ On Japan with Beat Crusaders on the cover!
Ivory7 Chord- “Fire Works”
Where we sober when we first met? All I know is I saw fireworks.
Lacco Tower- “Apple”
Probably the most mainstream J-Rock band I’ve posted here in a while. If they’re not big they will be.
Okay, this is the most mainstream band I’ve posted in a while. Supposedly alma also means apple in Hungarian.
Last Alliance- “Wing”
A boxer with a prosthetic leg shows us courage in the ring.
People In The Box- “Old Town”
Beautifully animated PV. I just wish the video had higher resolution.
Start Of The Day- “I Love You”
Start Of The Day loves you. Or the thought of loving you.
Not a chia pet. But almost a female version of →Pia-no-jaC←.
Asshole Unite- “Never Alone”
Because one asshole band is never enough. Pu-pu-pu-punk rawk!
Blonde Redhead- “Not Getting There”
Ms. Makino has a thing for horses.
Ice Cream Shout- “Tattooed Tears”
Stroll down the Barrio in this cobbled together clip from Children of Violence. Non-Japanese blogs are talking about this!
