I mean, it had to be. :lol: I wasn't a huge VK fan back in the day, but having heard some stuff from all of these bands after the fact, I'm kind of low-key jacked for this. And it's a really great band name considering how dead Rock is as a genre in 2022. I really wanted Judy and Mary to be the band that did this, but I think that window has shut completely, so this will do. I bet Nagata is super pumped for this. :lol:

Don't know if anyone besides me missed THE LAST ROCKSTARS debut release

"THE LAST ROCKSTARS (PARIS MIX)"


All English lyrics is a bit of a surprise, but I mostly dig the song. The "Bigadan bigadan ban ban ban" bit is a little cheesy, and the modern production is a tad soulless, but the rest of it has just enough turn of the century VK feel to make those things not so annoying. The bridge is really fantastic.

AHHHH! I missed this release.

I was surprised at how well Hyde spoke english. I think it was his VAMPS stuff that had me like, oh? He's pretty good. And a lot of his solo stuff is in english. I already know that Miyavi and Yoshki knew english. That just leaves Sugizo.

I want more now.

They don't look bad for a bunch of 50* year olds. (*Miyavi is in his 40s)

It's amazing what a little makeup and photoshop can do? Yoshiki does NOT look 57.

This is a place where a signature goes. Enjoy some Airi instead.

Rick Beato had Marty Friedman on his channel for a wide-ranging hour-long interview that included a conversation about the differences between Japanese and Western pop.



A few of us who've been following Beato for years have been trying to get him to check out J-pop, because everything he misses about Western pop is still at the core of J-pop. Marty might have finally cracked through the wall.

I recently discovered Atarashii Gakkou no Leaders! I actually found them a couple of years ago, thought they were weird but intriguing and then forgot them. This week I found their song Otona Blue, which I really like. Their newest single Maningen is good too, but they are extremely hit and miss to me. Anyway, I was very impressed by their The First Take performance of Otona Blue.
