Hi everyone! Is this group still alive? 
I live in the Orlando/Winter Park area and I'm a vocalist looking to start a jrock/vkei band. If you play guitar/drums/bass/keyboard or piano, don't hesitate to email me at hanabiflare@gmail.com

Thanks! \m/(^_~)\m/

Intro*~ [13 Jun 2010|01:29am]

[ mood | excited ]

Hey guys~
Really nice to have a j-rock community for Floridians; appreciate it.
I live about 1 1/2- 2 hours away from Orlando, in a religious, crappy town with nothing to do.
It'd be cool to make some new friends; maybe hangout every once in a while ^^~
I'm mostly passed the visual jrock phase (buying the clothes like crazy, making myself look like them, etc), but I still love the music, lol.

*about meCollapse )

BUCK-TICK Kings Of Our Time At Their "Day in Question" [15 Jan 2010|07:42pm]

■BUCK-TICK Kings Of Our Time At Their "Day in Question"
BUCK-TICK "The Day in Question" Dec 29th
at Nippon Budokan

The clock on each side of Nippon Budokan passed 7pm and yet the lights were still on and people kept streaming into the hall looking for their seats, meeting and chatting with friends in different rows. Still, the excitement grew by the second in anticipation for one of BUCK-TICK's annual special lives, decorated with an outstanding set list for sure. And then, in the blink of an eye it turned dark and sound effects, seeming to have the epic feel of a classic concert, drew people towards the stage and from there it was impossible to take one's eyes away. The instruments were set up on two levels on stage, each position being brightly illuminated by spotlights, as mysterious smoke arose from the still empty set of instruments.

Episode 149: Doremidan, Memories of the Five Members Will Never Fade

Hi everyone! This is musicJAPANplus writer kanako!
Recently on a whim I've decided I should more fully enjoy Japan. So on my days off I've been visiting lots of different places. Even though I was born and raised in Japan, there are many things I didn't know about my country. I'm making new discoveries everyday! I was amazed to find traditional Japanese-style houses still remaining here in Tokyo...During one of my quests for novel surprises I headed to Omotesando FAB!!

As of right now, we are in need of a street team leader and members in the Jacksonville, FL to do heavy local promotion! If you are interested, please contact Tainted Reality's Roger (Who is coordinating the national street team effort) at http://www.myspace.com/taintedrealityradio or his e-mail

Special Corner of V-ROCK FESTIVAL

This year, PENICILLIN is celebrating its 17th anniversary. Although the bassist GISHO separated from the band two years ago, all the other members have remained the same from when they had first formed PENICILLIN. For 2009, they released the single ‘BLACK HOLE’ in May, and now they are set to release a new single titled ‘WARP’ on September 2nd. We heard that they were very excited about their appearance in V-ROCK FESTIVAL, so we decided to visit their recording studio to talk about the new single and the live event.

Ever since forming the band, D had gradually but steadily expanded its fan base and continued reaching a wider audience. In 2007, while they had still been an indie band they performed at Hibiya Open-Air Concert Hall [max capacity 4000 people]. In May 2008 they made their long-awaited major debut. All the singles released after their debut have ranked No.10 or higher on the Oricon Singles Chart. On September 12th they will release the much anticipated 4th single ‘Tightrope’.
One day in August we heard that all the members were getting together at a studio in Tokyo to edit the music video of their new single. We decided to head for the studio to conduct an interview.
