Nice to see them come back. I haven't seen a Japanese band around here in a while...then again...I've been kindof out of the loop these past few months.

The first time I heard "Let's Groove" I knew I recognized the bass line. Ironically I first heard it on Kohaku Utagassen performed by an all star cast of Japanese singers.

Omedetou!!!

Masa gets a "mini-me!," perhaps with a mini bass! :) That's so awesome!

Anyone know what was going on in New York? Just recording? They kept talking about 1st Nagoya, then New York, or something like that. Are there other plans for the big apple? What about us west coast guys?

Need I say it again...PLEASE COME BACK TO AMERICA!

Morning Musume Coming to Los Angeles!!!

Just heard the news that the mega-popular girl group Morning Musume will be the guest of honor at the 2009 Anime Expo in Los Angeles from July 2-5. The web site says they will appear and perform!

The only question is how do people outside powerplant get tickets? You have to live in Japan to join powerplant.

I'd totally go if I could find out how to get tickets.

I wonder how many of dorikamu's songs have their roots in earlier parts of Miwa or Masa's life. It's so cool that she would save such a song for so long.

First of all..."THUD" (sound of my lifeless body hitting the pavement)...but seriously...I'm not sure...I'd probably just thank her for all her wonderful music.

That would be nice...but since it's not wonderland, I doubt tickets will be made available outside Japan. What I'd like to see is them take this 20th anniversary tour back here to the the US. Many of us American fans have been listening to them for many years. It's been over 12 years since I first h...

Another J-Rock sensation...Yuto Miyazawa!

I just saw the most amazing guitar player on Late Night with Conan O'Brien. 8 year old Yuto Miyazawa from Japan! He's an absolute prodigy! He played Crossroads by Eric Clapton flawlessly, and I've since found videos of him playing Crazy Train by Ozzy and other such classics as well. This kid is insa...

DCT TV

Just checking out dctgarden. There's a new DCT TV segment. Masa seems to have a lot of fun making these. Can anyone with a better understanding of Japanese than me explain what is happening in these videos? I understand bits and pieces, but not much. Also, who is the other guy he has been making the...

What they lacked last time they were out west was exposure. Virgin did a terrible job promoting them. The only way I knew they were coming last time was the internet. I'm not saying they should do a cartoon like Puffy, but a few TV appearances of some sort couldn't hurt. I think a company like Unive...
