I have my trumpet Ms S.
Mr P ! ! ! I don’t give a damn about any trumpet playing band it aint what I call rock and roll ! ! !
Welcome to the Rock and Roll party ! ! ! This week Mr P and I are sharing some of our favourite Japanese rock tracks. There is quite a variety, from tracks released this year to golden oldies from the 1990′s ! ! ! We think you will enjoy the selection, I think there will be something for everyone to like this week ! ! !
This time we are looking at “rock” but in two rather different ways. My choices focus on the seedy, “dark” side of things whilst Sakura’s , still rockin’, of course, are more user friendly. It’s quite a noisy selection and should be played LOUD !
We hope you enjoy them.
But Mr P ! ! ! I told you the Takushii Driba did not speak Engrish ! ! !
♪ ♫ ♪
Engrish is so lomantic ! ! !
Japanese borrows words from everywhere ! ! ! We have stolen words from Chinese, Portuguese and of course English and made them part of our language. We also learn English at school, so of course we can not resit showing of our English skills in our songs. Putting some English into a song can make it sound cool to Asian people but singing in a second language can be dangerous ! ! ! But these tracks all feature English and we really love love them. We hope you do too ! ! !
Speak Engrish punk!!!
Herro Evelyblody ! I found this topic a little traumatic. I’d hate anyone to think that I was being anything other than totally affectionate and supportive towards the musicians here who bravely, nay, courageously, take English words and mangle them into submission in the cause of being totally hip and cool and stuff. I suppose it’s no surprise, really, “rock” is pretty much and American/English invention. Anyway, here’s some tunes we love and hope you do to. Doomu Aligatto for listening
Mr P ! ! ! We coming here to make a report for He Said - She Said - Not for a dating event ! ! !
In this post we want to share some of the great things that Japanese women are doing in the music industry. This time we are concentrating on solo artists and we hope to show you some of the variety and creativity of Japanese women in what is still a male dominated industry.
I suppose it’s no surprise, really, that I’m fond of the ladies. Musically speaking, of course. I first really became interested in Japanese music via Shonen Knife and their Myspace links were very helpful in finding new bands. From there, of course, I have become aware of a whole host of wonderful Asian ladies and here are some of our favourite tracks by some of our favourite gals. Hope you enjoy. Continue reading
Ms S it is Rock not Lock!!!
But Mr P - that is what I said - Lock ! ! !
We have wanted to this post for a long time and now at last we can ! ! ! Japanese girls are very active in all genres of rock, much more I think than girls in the west. We want to show you some of the great things Japanese girls are doing these days in rock – it is loud and little crazy maybe, but we think you will enjoy it!!!
Last time we introduced you to some Japanese girls from the pink, fluffy end of the spectrum. This week it’s girls with balls. Big, fat, hairy rocky balls ( figuratively speaking, not really, I think you have to go to Thailand for that sort of thing). Wild girls making wild music in a wild way. Girls, doing for themselves. Go, go gyaru ! Continue reading
