J-Rock Fridays Vol. 93

March 22, 2013

In volume 93 of J-Rock Fridays, we have serial killers, crossdressers, a hair salon for children, wind instruments, big meat and more!

uminote- “Words Kill People (Cotodama the Killer)”

Cotodama may be a ruthless killer when he has his Casshern mask on, but he’s just a teary eyed father when his baby girl confronts him. I knew uminote could make an epic video if they had a budget!

The SALOVERS- “Yuka ni wa Kimi no Cardigan”

Vinyl records, rock posters, ramen. Just your average hipster’s college dorm room taken over by The SALOVERS. Pick your cardigans off the floor, they’re clean enough to wear to English Lit.

Her Name In Blood- “We Refuse”

J-Rock Fridays Vol. 31

October 15, 2010

Another posted-after-work edition of J-Rock Fridays.  I’m sorry I spent my afternoon at the new Salvation Army by my house.  Is anyone else creeped out by the black men in red suits?  They were ALL OVER THE PLACE.  Except they couldn’t be nicer.  They literally ran to open the door for me and my mom.  Hm.  Looks like the next J-Rock Fridays column falls just in time for Halloween Super Fun Time.  Post your favorite “masked” bands/videos in the comments and I will probably add them.  I promise not to post too many Beat Crusaders videos!

Good Morning America- 空ばかり見ていた

Ohohohohooh your “ohohohohoohs” sound so good.  But if you’re going to name yourselves after a popular western catchphrase I recommend not spelling your name out in Japanese, thanks!
