Yes I know its not blues, but I have been told our site site is also about our musical interests and influences....so here's more incredibly hot japanese chicks doing good music and amazing production! Its an influence, I promise!
Seriously - Shonen Knife have been around for ages, a tough thing for any band. Check'em out
Oh, we're playing the Sydney Blues Festival this weekend and YES we'll play Yamanote Line :-)
Hey there. You might have guessed from songs we've done like 'yamanote line' that I have a thing for Japanese stuff.
We've been looking at production (lights and stuff) for our own gigs and while I've been doing the research, I've been looking at the production on gigs done in Japanese and Korean pop music scene for some inspiration.
Here's a couple of clips by my fave J-pop act, 'Perfume'. They're hot, the songs are well crafted and they have a breathtaking show VS a clip from the K-pop (korean) pop scene from 2ne1.
You might know the Japanese and the Koreans have a bit of a rivalry (think Sydney/Melbourne writ large) . Even if the music isnt your thing, check out the way they do their shows.
