there are some Les Rallizes Denudes CDs out at the mo, seemingly limited edition. I dunno if its difficult to get a grip on them from youtube videos, but im going to slap 12 quid down this weekend as ive just got a new job.

Toilet & Bowels 06.23.2010 05:38 PM

12? Normally Les Rallizes CDs are priced at two or three times the price of a normal album.

Ive found myself in a Japanese phase at the minute, apart from Les Rallizes Denudes, who i am genuinely astonished havent been given the "greatest band youve never heard of" treatment by some mainstream outlet, especially considering the story about the bass player being involved in an aeroplane hijacking. Some other good ones are,

Theres a really good blog i found the other day here :

http://dullcare.blogspot.com/

Good links to youtube vids and downloads with a range of styles on show old and new, i especially enjoy Gazan because they all wear sequins except the bass player who is naked.

I've been getting into visual kei recently. I've liked Malice Mizer for a while but until now I never really liked any other VK bands. Favourites include:
Kuroyume
Buck-Tick
Luna Sea
X Japan
Hide
D'erlanger
Zi:Kill

Most bands I only like for their early stuff though.

I didn't know where else to post this since only like 2 people will care about it but you guys know that band SPARTA LOCALS, right?

I just heard this band, TWO DOOR CINEMA CLUB, on.. vh1 of all fucking places... listen/watch:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YXwYJyrKK5A


is it just me or does this song sound VERY influenced by sparta locals, and the video is even similiar to one of theirs (with that white background and shit)?

atsonicpark 04.13.2011 01:13 AM

oh yeah and as far as vis kei goes, it's all about BUCK TICK and cali-gari

atsonicpark 04.13.2011 01:18 AM

compare
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ROVxgXw-wsc

it's not identical, just seems influenced by them...

then again, a lot of j-indie bands have that kinda sound.


MO SOME TONEBENDER and so on, you know.

Ghostchase 04.14.2011 04:27 PM

SPARTA LOCALS... awesome.

TWO DOOR CINEMA CLUB... typical flash in the pan generic UK music.

Two Door Cinema Club are garbage, I get barraged by that music from people in school on a daily basis. I'd rather just listen to Sparta Locals.

atsonicpark 04.15.2011 02:44 AM

Yeah yeah they suck ass, but my point was, doesn't that song and video sound and look like they're REALLY inspired by Sparta Locals? I dunno. Just a weird impression I got.

For those out there who don't know the Locals, get 2nd Fanfare (some of the best guitar lines ever) and SUN SUN SUN asap.

vulva 04.16.2011 07:09 PM

Any of you ever hear Cyberne? Japanese metal with a strong Jesus Lizard influence

It's similiar but I really really doubt Two Door Cinema Club are privvy on the awesomeness of Sparta Locals.
