Another band rises from the ashes…

Parms is the new project from Satoshi, vocalist of DRUM:KAN.  Four demos have been added to their myspace.  I’m liking what I’m hearing so far although it doesn’t sound that much different from his previous band.  DRUM:KAN broke up last September.


DRUMKAN 1995-2007

November 14, 2007

Tonight, DRUMKAN will play their last show at the Tokyo LOFT in Japan.  You can read more about their split hereDRUMKAN was one of the first bands I listened to when I first started getting into Japanese music.  It’s a shame to see them break up.  Later I’ll post their song “Who Saves the World” on my player, in remembrance.  I urge you to pick up their only U.S. released album As Life, their final album, on Interpunk.

DRUMKAN have launched their EPK site.  What that is, I don’t know but if you click on Audio there’s free mp3s for their songs “Away” and “Against in the wall.”


so it’s been a while

May 21, 2007

So today is the start of my 2nd week off from school.  As such I’ve done absolutely nothing since -.-  I went to Anime Central (ACEN) last Saturday where Spiral Spiders and High and Mighty Color performed.  Unfortunately, I was unaware that you needed a ticket and they were sold out by the time I got to the booth.  Maybe next year!  I was going to do an ACEN report on my *comic* blog but as it turns out there’s not much to talk about.

In any case, I went to Best Buy yesterday and they had the new Cornelius cd in stock.  I didn’t expect to find it there but I snatched it up with my 10% off coupon.

Also if anyone’s interested DRUM:KAN‘s cd is available for preorder on interpunk.

Now that school’s out, hopefully I can find out more to do with this blog.
