J-Rock Fridays Vol. 18

April 16, 2010

Welcome back.  I have a feeling that it doesn’t matter whether or not I comment on these videos or not, but I did.  But I left a couple for you to do.  Hey, I even brought the poll back!  We’ll see how that goes.

oono yuuki- + –

Time to start dragging my favorites to the top of the list.  This is, dare I say, epic.

the telephones- “kiss me, love me, kiss me”

For their latest single, the telephones forgo their usual dancefloor craziness for a serious rock tune.  It turns out pretty well.  Best part of the video by far is their keyboardist running around with an accordion, although I’m not convinced he’s actually playing it.

Sotaisei Riron- ミス・パラレルワールド

Sotaisei Riron takes us on an interesting pitch-black ride for their latest video.  I kept watching in hopes of meeting their final destination, but alas…by the way you should try watching this video upside down.

TsuShiMaMiRe- “Strobe”

Here’s something I never thought I’d see, guidos lip synching J-pop.  And so much more.  The song is disgustingly cute, while the video gets progressively disgusting.  I think you’ll know what I mean.

Stone Leek- “Goldilocks”

Pretty awesome hardcore punk band.  Their first album My Last Words is out now.


Thistime scores yet again with ONEPERCENTRES.  They sound a lot like winnie, but with a better male vocalist.

The Strikers- “Pandemic yeah yeah”

Hey, Peelander-Z is the only band allowed to dress as Power Rangers.

The Jetzejohnson- “Tomorrow”

Here’s what you want to see in the morning, an overweight drag queen hitting baseballs.


Still awesome, I just ran out of things to say.  Do your own review!


I like polls too much to get rid of them.  Pick  two please.

  1. I’ve got a post set for TsuShiMaMiRe to run on Sparkplugged.net The video is actually a reenactment of the 1995 movie KIDS. Which I can’t for the life of me understand why you would want to pay homage to this movie, but what the hey, they looked like they had fun doing it.

  2. Just discovered this blog; absolutely awesome man. Keep up the good work
