Kinbaku!

I am still addicted to Golden Bomber, and i've gotten seriously addicted to them
Sitting in front of my laptop just watching their videos and listen to their songs all day long
CxBLUE just released their new music video, went to watch it
But before it reach the half of the video i already beh tahan close it then open Golden Bomber's video
Like kena drug, Golden Bomber drug!

I've mentioned before the previous post (well, if anyone actually did read my blog)
Golden Bomber is a visual kei jrock band, not just any visual kei jrock band, they are an air band
Which mean they don't actually play their instruments, they just move around
What makes them special is not just because they don't play their instrumets, they actually did random stuffs and random performance during their "guitar solo" which really "wtf?" during their live which is really funny hilarious stupid
All music and lyrics are done by the vocalist Kiryuin Sho!

Just to make things clear (well i think no one cares anyway but whatever)
Talking about visual kei or jrock, I am bot a huge fan of visual kei
I'm ok with them, their music are nice, but i'm not crazy in them
The only few visual kei band i've love is AN CAFE and X JAPAN
And visual kei, jrock, japanese rock, is not screamos, just a few, but not, not screamos
And GLAY is NOT screamos
If anyone said X JAPAN is screamo, i'm ok 'cause they do scream during the old days
But GLAY… is NOT, their songs are NOT "noisy"
They are well-known for their ballads and love songs for freakin sake, not loud noise or screaming *face palm*
The only "noisy" band i listen to is X JAPAN, and ONE OK ROCK is consider noisy too but i guess it's ok for most of the people because they sounded young? (well they ARE young)
And some of MIYAVI's song is noisy…
Matchbox Twenty and The Killers are my fav american rock band, they are not noisy :(
Bands like Mr Children are not "noisy" as they are pop rock :(
(oops 突然莫名地发泄 coz suddenly think back got few times some of my friend misunderstood the "rock" that i love. but i think no one cares anyway :( )

Ok back to Golden Bomber
Here's a rough intro (all Japanese -_- but you can see what they do during their live)


I'm gonna say the same thing (kinda)
Eventho Golden Bomber is a visual kei band, their songs are not 100% vkei ish
They have different tunes which you can find in most of the japanese pop music (or parodies)
Some pretty nice pop tunes like this one (direct translate: "I haven't get to know your phone number" :x)


Live Version, "guitar solo" random performance at 3:37

I wonder if anyone actually did play and watch, if yes, THANK YOU!


The first video I watched is their Memeshikute PV, which is their most famous song

The first time I saw this, the only thing I notice is the vocalist teeth is ugly :x
You can already see they're a bit "something wrong" from this PV
Eventho I did saw there's many news about them on tokyohive
But then i kinda ignore them 'cause the vocal sounded like those typical vk band...*__*

...until NHK kouhaku's performers' list release, they're in the list!
Which is really shocking 'cause now there are no visual kei or even jrock band perform on koukahu anymore
Even top bands like GLAY or L'Arc or B'z, even younger generation of jrock bands like The Gazette
But Golden Bomber get to appear on Kouhaku!
Then my sis said her friend who stays in Japan told her, they are a comedic jrock band
Sooo... youtubed them again.... I found this live and my sis found this PV
And so we were so excited to wait and watch their kouhaku performance, and then we became their fan

They have different versions of Memeshikute, and look at this

KPOP version leh kai wan xiao~~ :x

And they have a song called 成龙很酷.... :x



Ok la they also have some normal slow songs like this very Mr Children-ish song - Tomorrow Never World, and this one




Their latest single! They just released their latest single on the 1st of January
And guess what? It already topped the Oricon chart's first position when it released! First place!

Why??
1. Thanks to kouhaku which kinda helped them gained more attention
2. Epic nostalgic

What do I mean? Here's the music video lol


Intro vo: A few girls are talking and teasing about how horrible they looked, then a middle aged woman said, but this was very cool during the old days
Then... music, sutatto!

They have three different versions, normal edition and two limited edition
The two limited edition, one is with DVD, another one is... those old 8cm size CD )OoO(

Smart or not??? I think very smart lo as collective item!
'cause now all those music collections are all boxes and pretty packaging etc
This one is the old 8cm CD!

Even their official site looks like those old website LOL



.....

The more I watch them the more I love them ♥♥♥
They may look ugly or stupid, but somehow cute and lovable LOL♥

Should have know them earlier T___T But it's ok 'cause they are still active right now :3


Ok I'm done fangirl for now (here only), more to come... :x
If anyone actually did read AND watched AND listen everything here, thank you so much
Seriously.
