Nagomu and visual kei are considered different movements as far as I'm aware but they had some things in common imo and I remember reading that a lot of nagomu fangirls moved on to visual kei once it started taking off

You're right, but I think Uchouten influenced bands like Metronome or Codomo A.
Kinniku Shoujo Tai (who were in nagomu at first) also influenced bands from the angura side.

Never heard of Nagomu. From what I can understand, its 80s bands on a label call Nagomu Records, right?
>>10133341
Speaking of Codomo A, Eiji's current project Matsutake Works (MT WORKS) is picking up in activity now. They have recordings available on Spotify. Pic related.

Yeah, Nagomu Records was the label of Kera (pic related) vocalist and frontman of Uchouten. He has produced a number of famous bands back in the 80s, although Nagomu ceased activities in early 1990s, Uchouten came back in 2015.
Eiji is a big nagomu boy, he even did some covers of nagomu stuff in his folk side-project onigiri de 120pun.
Matsutake Works is pretty good, 頭痛ちゃん especially is incredible.
Also, Riu, bassist of Metronome, plays in another band by Kera, Kera & The Synthesizers. And FLOPPY (metronome's Sharaku electronic band) has played lives with Uchouten in recent years.
>>
>>10133467
I always think I know a lot, and then I get my mind blown like this. I think a lot of that information is obscure even on the Japanese internet. Even as a fan of Sandwich de 120 pun, I didn't know there was an onigiri version :)
>>
>>10133304
Holy shit I listened to a lot of Uchoten when I was 18, how did I forget about them? Nanairo Shakkuri best/worst song to listen to while on LSD. Is their new stuff any good though? I drifted away from listening to them in heavy rotation about two years before they reunited

Were Yapoos signed with Nagomu too? I remember I kept seeing people in lolita forums back in the day associating Jun Togawa both with Nagomu and lolita but I could never find a source for it. I always assumed that either one of her bands signed with them (wouldn't have been Guernica based on the vintage sound so possibly Yapoos) or Nagomu fangirls maybe just liked her too even though she was arguably a much bigger artist than most of the bands on Nagomu.

OR maybe the authors of pic related pulled it out their asses and it then got parroted around like a fact when there wasn't much info about early lolita available.

Eiji has a lot of obscure releases, even today, he keeps releasing CD-Rs in very limited quantities that he only sells at live venues and/or sometimes mail-order only. You probably know that he has over 70 CDs released as DENTAKU.
Onigiri de 120pun had 2 CDs, and it included covers of Tama and Karate Bakabon (both nagomu bands), among others.
>>10133954
>Nanairo Shakkuri best/worst song to listen to while on LSD.
Hahahah, great song.
Yeah I liked their new stuff a lot, you can listen to both their "lost and found" EP and "Kafka's Rock/Nietzsche's Pop" full album on Spotify.
Kera also released a jazz album in 2016 called "Brown White and Black" (which includes a cover of Uchoten's "Mississippi", also a Guernica cover, among others). In May, Kera releases a new album, "Landscape". He's been really active on music this past years.
>>10133959
As far as I know Jun never released anything in Nagomu but she was part of the same family of new wave/post-punk bands so yeah, Nagomu gals liked Togawa too. Jun also performed with Uchoten at least once, and shared stage many times. Kera and Jun call each other "Jun-chan" and "Kera-chan" respectively, lol.
Just recently Kera tweeted about Jun because Cou (Uchoten's guitarist) is going to be playing guitar for her, since Bera (old guitarist of nagomu-era Kinniku shoujo-tai, who also played guitar for Jun these past years, passed away recently on a car accident.

More true than you could ever know. He was the first Japanese artist I got into and he's still one of my favorites. I've seen him with Vamps like 3 times so far, and the last time I saw them in LA there were a ton of Japanese bangya at the show. Fun and awesome show, and hilarious to see my mom react to the bangya headbanging in a line.

Just bought Jupiter’s new album on release. This better be good boys...
>>
>>10139817
What do you think? I am hoping to buy it during the European tour.
>>
>>10140469
It’s really really good if you like European-style power-metal. It’s different from everything that came before their last single (two of the three of those songs are on the album). I really like it because I only really care for metal and classical music, which as always Hizaki is great at combining. There is a ton of English. Which surprised me, but Kuze’s voice can actually stand behind the power in the lyrics so it doesn’t sound off or anything. Basically, from what I’ve heard Hizaki and Teru wanted to move back to more traditional metal after doing Vkei for like 20 years. Hence the choice of a non-Vkei vocalist to begin with. Good move.
>>
Also a new parody V-kei band konan suki yaro? (コンナンスキヤロ?) just started with 10 members all based around Visual Tanuki stereotypes. Their first song is...something. Had me laughing.

>>10140696
He still does...stuff? Sometimes. You can follow his twitter. Honestly though, his voice never fit the rest of the music. He did okay, but never improved to the level of the other members. Rose Quartz was the culmination of that lol. Horrible English and all. I’m just superbly picky about my music though so grain of salt etc.
>>
>>10140696
Zin’s voice was too weak, untrained, and ‘pop music-y’ for the instrumentals. He didn’t fit.
I’m not a fan of the new vocalist, he feels mismatched stylewise in his outfits, and lacks presence in what I’ve seen, but vocally definitely suits them much better. That said, everything I’ve listened to by them with either vocalist feels very samey.

A lot of old visual kei is getting added to Spotify. Just noticed much of GazettE's discography is finally added, including their more recent albums. It no longer just stops at Toxic. LM.C similarly got fixed up. There are more examples but I'll show those later. I hope we eventually get more Versailles and Kiryu. Disclaimer, this is all true for USA Spotify, I don't know about other regions.

>>10142113
Yeah, I was devestated when Sibilebashir broke up. Roman Kyoku thrills me, it's exactly what I wanted. It has Toru from Sex-Android, so that's a huge plus. Their one song so far is a banger, I'm hoping for lots more to come.

>>10142127
yeah its crazy! some new stuff too, a lot of UniTe, entirety of the gallos discography, almost all of dezerts stuff

its crazy how much this allows me to engage with bands as someone who uses streaming for my music. shipping on cds is as expensive as ever so i try and support bands i listen to on there buy enabling my cheki obsession and buying merch.

They're annoying but at the same time I'm happy that bands like malice mizer are still being loved and appreciated. When I first got into vkei as a 14 year old I was doubly as painful, and despite that I'm still into it today. They're annoying now, but once they're done with the dumb "i know everything" 16 year old tumblr phase they'll just be any other fan.

Also seeing malice mizer pics I've never seen before or that I thought were lost to photobucket resurge makes me really happy. In the end, I'd rather have annoying 16 year old malice mizer fans who think that kami was a qweer angel uwu than a gazette fan obsessed with teh hawt yaoiz xD

Yeah, it's not my thing either, but I know it appeals to the other side of the fanbase (young females who also like kpop). I'm pretty sure most of Mejibray's songs were written by MiA, and I strongly dislike that guy nowadays. I'm mostly interested in catching up with whatever Meto/Yutaro is doing nowadays, though I'm not quite sure what this is yet. I haven't gotten to hear him sing yet. He talks now though, so that's cool. But yeah, Mejibray was great, will miss them.
>>
>>10149209

I think they are getting better though, I liked flight plan from their new EP. Wish there was less autotune but koichi can't sing half the time lol.

Also I may or may not have spent....some..time reading up on this whole thing so I'm just dumping stuff I read here.

apparently they said they aren't allowed to do vkei/mention mejibray anymore? It's probably a condition of them leaving the label. during the show during halloween they dressed up, but koichi said they won't be doing vkei anymore.

in the interview they had, tzk said he only started listening to edm last year (he was listening to jpop before that lol) so this thing is definitely koichi's idea. Seems like tzk is letting koichi take the lead now, he leaves the MCs mostly to koichi too who is kind of floundering lol.

During one of the first shows Koichi also said they didn't intend or expect to release an EP(super star) so soon since this is something new that they are trying, but tower records (who was helping them promote) told them "might as well make a cd". Which probably explains the shitness if they had to rush something out unexpectedly
>>

forgot to add, but if there's anything good to come out of this, it's that tzk looks way better now physically. He seemed to have gained some weight which is good for him.

What are some 2010s bands you liked/ wish would come back from the dead? Maybe they’re just on hiatus or maybe they broke up. I kind of want to listen to some more recent stuff, but I don’t really like too many currently active bands.

thats ridiculous?????? no vkei????? what. like. LEGALLY?? im so???
>>
>>10150029
2010 in itself was an amazing year for VK.

im really missing zoro at the moment. Gonna miss an cafe a fucking bunch - particularly their big days where they had like a cult following and they came to london for shows quite regularly :(

Aicle for definite too, they were probably one of the best VK bands ever. V-neu around when they released LIMIT pv were like sooooo fucking good too

basically i miss early 2010 oshare kei :-(.

Fuck like there’s a lot. Versailles is basically dead, Deluhi (although I guess they’re doing a couple revival lives) Xephyr was pretty good, Virgil too but the members changed a ton then the singer became a voice actor.

There's tons of them, be more specific. Subgenre of metal?
>>10150029
Aicle should come back.
But if you don't like current bands, you're not looking hard enough, there's modern similar bands to any sub style of vkei. What do you listen to?
>>10150044
Aicle, An Cafe, v[NEU], all so fuckin good. Nowadays we have some good bands like that though, like Sick2, Codomo Dragon, Mikansei Alice, 0.1gの誤算 and BabyKingdom.
>>10150049
>Versailles is basically dead
Not true. Balancing separate activities and the main band doesn't make them dead.

Have you ever gotten over your obsession with larping as a retard?
>>
>>10150260
Yeeeeah it's great!!!
>>
>>10150258
Nope and it’s a running joke among bandmen lol. Every time at karaoke everyone screams “Bonjour” if anyone sings a Lareine or Versailles song.

>>10150254
They don’t have any current plans. Balancing would be going back and forth between activities. Not going years in between lives. Kamijo wanted to go solo.
>>
>>10150290
>Kamijo wanted to go solo.
Way to oversimplify it. Kamijo wanted to to vampire and rose stuff while the rest wanted to do power metal. I'm sick of the Kamijo hate in this community, you all suck. Kamijo is based. He takes care of his friends and puts lesser known artists in the spotlight, over and over again.
>>
>>10147679
Wow, the bassist is a former friend of mine. It’s so cool to still see him being into business and also staying true to his original sound back from his neko Mimi days.
>>
>>10150298
>>10150302
>>10150306
Give me one (1) piece of evidence for your claims that Kamijo's a dick.
>>
>>10150298
>>10150302
>>10150306
Nobody will even touch elegant gothic stuff nowadays because you people make a mockery of it. Same people who complain about muhh old school good old days are the reason things changed.

>Every band he touches has some falling out/drama.
Yup, that's why he was able to get literally every one of his former bandmates together for the 20th anniversary live. Dumbass detected.
>>
>>10150325
>ignore whatever example I give
I literally won't, but it seems you're incapable of providing even a single example. Sad.
>Kamijo literally is obsessed with Lestat and Anne Rice novels
And that's a bad thing how...?
>>
>>10150329
Kamijo defending samefag and Kamijo hating samefag. What's wrong with a little debate?
>>
>>10150332
I'm the samefag, I will admit that it my initial reaction was retarded. I'm not denying that he bases himself on Anne Rice novels, but I will call it retarded to frame that as a bad thing like >>10150258 did.
I wouldn't be upset if Kamijo hate wasn't the same basic opinion all over Monochrome Heaven and bleeding into here.
>>
>>10150336
He didn't "rally people", he got together literally every one of his former band mates. Add in the Household Troops being tons of indies bandmen and it's pretty clear Kamijo isn't the type of person to make enemies.
>>10150345
>I don't follow Versailles, did he get over his obsession?
Yep, totally not framing it as a bad thing. I'm totally just triggered and obsessive, it's not like he's getting hate for no reason.
>>
>>10150302
>he does/did it
did what?
>>
It's actually retarded to argue about who is/isn't a dick in a music industry
>>
>>10150381
Lol I'm not in this argument but I literally laughed at your comment. I can't imagine what kind of world you live in where these kind of reactions are considered too fragile. It's not like the other person is acting so calm and collected.
>>
>>10150373
Yeah, I agree.
>>10150381
Yup, what >>10150386 said it true. I have no emotions attached to this conversation except mild annoyance at slander without evidence.
>>
>>10150393
>stating a fact
When was this?
>not even being rude
Oh boo hoo, you're so innocent.
>They even admitted to being so upset
Annoyed is the right word.
>>
>>10150393
I mean you've posted at least as many times as the other person who actually cares about Kamijo unlike you, so what does that make you lol
>>
>>10150400
Show me where I said I was upset?
>>10150424
Lol ok
>>
>>10150042
Well, it wasn't said explicitly, but the label is shady af so it's not a stretch. not sure if it's legally or they were threatened desu.

in the interview, koichi said they decided on a 2 man duo because it's flexible, doesn't need support members and it's something that can be done even in front of a train station. so I suspect the company may have really blacklisted them since they were expecting no help at all.
some staff members also left with them

I'm going to bury myself in a hole right now. phone autocorrected desu to desu

I just hope Misa isn't a bad guy now, I know he produced Mejibray. Otherwise I don't really care.

speaking of Lareine, check out this amazing live report
https://aitreni.livejournal.com/194195.html
Some highlights
>Kamijo brought a girl in a sexy skimpy outfit and mask onstage and led her to the sofa. She sat there, Mayu went and sat next to her, and she slithered all over him, sticking her tongue down his throat, and then as he played the slides in the instrumental intro she slithered more on him. I had an unfortunately clear view of what she did to Mayu. Then Mayu got up and Kamijo sat down on the couch to be slithered on. :O Kamijo turned his head when he kissed her so all I saw of that was his hair, thank God for small mercies

Misa doesn't seem like a bad person, but he seems to be severe or have a strong personality, still doesn't have any shady past like, say, Kisaki.
From what I've gathered from japanese VK fans, he's well liked, and people in the industry also respect him.
He cute in that zebra outfit though!
>>
>>10150590
Yeah, you guys got me into him :)
>>
>>10150588
This live report amused me. I always imagined the girl wears a bad blond wig, that would be so typical.
>>
>>10150588
>>10150754
I may be a Kamijo stan but that's funny as fuck, I forgot that happened
>>
anyone know why tensai. is going on hiatus? they seem to be doing quite well
>>
>>10151609
I can't find any information stating that they're going on hiatus. I checked their Twitter, their official site, and a couple news sites. Are you sure it's てんさい。you're thinking of?

活動休止 = Hiatus

I heard that it's because they're either going to restart activities under another name or one or some of the members are going to retire from vkei (the bassist or drummer)
>>
>>10150049
Speaking of Virgil I wonder what happened to the third set of guitarists? Did those two do anything at all after that or just kind of disappear?
