Hebe Solo

Simply love this song and the nicely shot music video. Thanks to my dear friend, Caris for the recommendation. Might consider getting the CD too.

SuG with LM.C

Attended Sundown Festival 2010 yesterday night.

Main reason was to catch J-Rock bands, SuG サグ (though I had already seen them once in Japan before) & LM.C despite the “not-that-cheap” ticket price. However, my travel plan to Japan this year has been postphoned indefinitely, so, of course I just couldn’t miss watching them here since it is also a rare chance for J-Rock bands to even drop by; moreover this time round, 2 bands came instead of just 1.

31 July 2010 will be another date set for remembrance in my collection of memories. Thank you guys for coming over here!

SuG サグ

Love them for their bright colours and the energy they gave out on stage, which makes you wonder where did they get all that non-stop flow of energy from? Not forgetting, they were really cute.


I do think that maya (vocals; left) has a cheeky but cute look. In fact, he looked so good in real person than in photos. He was so lively on stage and active like nothing can stop him. Aiji (guitar; right) played real hard too. They really compliment each other well as a unit.  I am really glad I had this chance to see them “live” on stage at least once in my life.

To the fans and affiliates,

We regret to inform all fans and affiliates that Daisuke was laid to rest on July 15, 2010.
In respect of the wishes of his family the funeral procession will be carried out with his closest relatives only. We thank you deeply for all your support for Daisuke up to now. Our utmost and heartfelt condolences go out to everyone.”


Was kinda upset when my favourite Japanese band, “The Underneath” announced their break-up earlier this year since they were considered relatively new with a slightly different style from their previous band, “TRANSTIC NERVE“. However, the original members (minus guitarist, TAL), went on to form another new band known as “defspiral“. Well, at least they will still be musically active for some time (or so I hope).

Anyway, I was really glad that I managed to catch them live as “The Underneath” then during December 2008 before their disbandment. It was my first, as well as last time watching them perform. Their stage presence & charisma were indeed unforgettable, especially TAKA’s powerful vocals. Hopefully, “defspiral” will be here to stay for good and I can watch them again soon. The band has also released its 1st single, “DIVE INTO THE MIRROR”.
