Less Known Japanese Singers! (147)


1 Name: Rurutia 2005-09-27 21:42 ID:ctfg1t+q

This thread is for the discussion of Japanese bands and artists who are not as well known in the west as say, Ayumi Hamasaki, The Pillows, and Gackt.
That is, not to put Gackt and the Pillows in the same boat. . .

>I have only heard one song from "Mai Kurai", called "Secret of my Heart". It is my girlfriends favorite song. I like it, but I haven't heard anymore of Mai Kurai. Is she good?

Akira Sudou; she's probably best known for doing some Bubblegum Crisis 2040 music years ago and released an album as As Sekiria. It looks like she's going to be releasing a new single soon. If it's prelude to releasing more stuff, I'll be happy.

I live in California and found a little known female group from Japan called, "YELLOW MACHINEGUN". No one here knows of them, which I think is great! They get some air play on Osaka's FM 802. The almbum titled, SPOT REMOVER, is definitely a must if you like the sound of angry women screaming over heavy guitar and drums. Typical 3-piece punk group.

There is a guy who lives in my apartment block who sings in the morning with his window open. He is not very good but better than most of the stuff on the radio.

He is not as nasal and whiney as most Japanese singers get when they try to sound white (forcing L sounds into words where they don't belong: Olly Wakalanai...)

Actually it's Mai Kuraki (倉木麻衣) - she's almost as well known as the other well-known female pop stars like Ai Otsuka and Nami Tamaki.

A band I think is absolutely hilarious is "Nice Guy Jin" who are a bunch of white guys with afro-style hair who rap in Japanese about the most mundane topics.

as everyone said Mai Kuraki IS a very well-known singer in Japan. But actually the Pillows are not so famous here. I don't know any Japanese people who listen to them (many say they don't even know who they are) and I think they may be better known to gaijin and to people living overseas.

Wow, no offense, but you sound like a stuck-up prick. A musician becoming more popular doesn't instantly make their music less good. You should listen to music because you like it, and not to lord it over the heads of others that you're so special because they've never heard of any of your favorite bands.

I love a lot of the bands Yuki Kajiura has written music for or actually been a part of like Kalafina, See-Saw, and FictionJunction.

Recently I've been getting into a female duet called Yuimino

日本の芸能界もマイケルジャクソンの人生を共有して混乱してたり
日本のコメディアンが、マイケルの人気を取り合ったりと
混乱してたんだよね

Basically he teams up with Bubble-B, and they do some silly songs.

Remember Toyama Kōichi (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koichi_Toyama)? The crazy-awesome bald guy who first stood for election to the post of Tokyo Governor in 2007 and announced that his platform was to scrap the whole "horrible nation" and build a new one from scratch, and who then in 2008 made a video complaining that he wasn't eligible as a POTUS candidate even though the US government meddles all over the world as if it were their own territory?

Piko! He's not really well known but he's getting there.

Himeka too. She's a French-canadian who sings in Japanese.
