In an attempt to make more regular columns on J-Rock Explosion, Random J-Rock Updates returns! I’ll probably be doing this every Wednesday from now on, starting the Wednesday after next Wednesday. I compile these mainly from myspace Activity Stream and bulletins, sometimes there’s nothing to report for days. I’ve also added a new feature to this column, Myspace Band of the Week. This is a band that randomly added me on myspace or vice versa and doesn’t suck. These are mostly small bands that don’t have any music videos for me to show off for J-Rock Fridays. There’s probably more words in this paragraph than the actual news, but go on…
-Muon has 4 new live tracks for free here. They are currently writing their new studio album.
-Cornelius is producing original music for Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.
–Absolute Polysics will be available on iTunes September 29.
–Freaky Frog is putting out their debut album on November 4 in Japan. The band is fronted by former BEAT CRUSADER umu.
-BoA’s US album was released again.
