God Jazz Time [10 Jul 2008|10:18am]
Out of curiosity, you know those random clips on the dvd... do they mean anything in particular or reference anything important? Or are they really just random clips? o.o I don't know whether to be amused, baffled, or annoyed by them. :/

TMGE DVDs [20 Jun 2008|09:32am]
I know this place hasn't been updated in about a year (surprisingly... where are all the fans?) but it's worth a shot I guess in asking a question. Hopefully someone will see this and point me in the right direction.

Basically, does anyone have more information on the TMGE dvds? Reading the descriptions on CDJapan doesn't really help me since I find them rather vague and I'd like to know that I'm getting a live show rather than a pv collection or some sort of documentary thing. I'd also like a little review on the quality of the dvds and which you would highly recommend to have.

Big thanks to anyone who answers.

New Birthday Album [14 Jul 2007|04:44pm]

[ mood | awake ]

If you have already pre-ordered Alicia get ready for the new album coming out September 12, 2007.

The title has been yet undecided and is currently only available in LP format (I'm assuming it'll be availabe in CD format later...ish). I checked neowing.co.jp and found out a little more info about it. Three tracks from the Alicia single won't be on it (FUGITIVE, SMALL TOWN, and オオカミのノド). After the release, the boys will go on tour to support the album (LOOKING FOR THE LOST TEARDROPS TOUR).

Soooooo... is anyone excited? :D :D

By the way, I also found out that オオカミのノド is the opening for an anime called "Zombie Loan." Judging from the opening it has lots of full moons, guns, zombies and all that good stuff. Whatever.

New Radio Caroline release [06 Jun 2007|07:39pm]

[ mood | curious ]

The mini-album extremes doesn't come out until the 20th, but there's already samples about the internets.

Hop over to their page on Listen Japan to hear some of the new songs (though I think the song sample/song title links are mismatched).

Then you can head over to barks and watch a clip of the PV for Just Like Maria (wtf is with Shinya "singing"? I swear he and Yusuke have to be related...)

They seem to be going more punk, which might take a few listens before I get used to it.

Lyrics [24 Apr 2007|05:22pm]

[ mood | thoughtful ]

Hey everyone, I got the VIBE ON! vinyl today and it came with an english lyric card so I thought I'd share the translations with everyone. Enjoy :3

VIBE ON!Collapse )

I Don't Care to Keep On Being Your SlaveCollapse )

If you're wondering where to find these songs, VIBE ON! is on TMGE106 and Collection (released by Alive) and I Don't Care to Keep On Being Your Slave is on the bonus cd of Grateful Triad Years.

Lots of live Birthday pics [24 Jan 2007|07:32pm]

@ Smashing Mag

@ Tokyo Real Eyes

And to those who have heard the new maxi-single, what do you think? I didn't like it all that much at first, but they're growing on me.

Also, for fellow Yusuke fans, his photography is in a new book titled Holgascape. I don't know if anyone else is familiar with the Holga but it's a medium-format toy camera, you can learn more about it here. Totally getting that book.

Night Line PV clip and samples [31 Dec 2006|12:34pm]

The Birthday's official site has been updated with a 45-second clip of the Night Line PV, along with samples from the songs on the single. I'm a bit iffy about Night Line and Third Impact, but Silent Days and 45Club sound promising.

The Birthday news (mostly) [02 Dec 2006|09:45pm]

There's an interview/comment with Yusuke and Akinobu on ONZO.

There's a new image of them on their rockin-blues page.

Their official site has been updated with details for the new single, NIGHT LINE. The bonus DVD version will have live performances of Syachi and Nude Rider from their show at Shibuya-AX. The bonus CD version will have live performances of two non-studio recorded songs: Lovers and Ookami no Nod, also from their show at Shibuya-AX.

Apparently, Midnight Bankrobbers is still an active project for Yusuke and Akinobu. They're on the bill for the all night event "Tokyo Night Show" at Shinjuku Loft on February 9th.

update on the boys [22 Jul 2006|10:04pm]

I apologize for not posting in a while. My lifeline for following the guys has stopped updating. I still find a thing or two when I check the official webistes and troll the BBSs. Anyway, on to the important things.

ROSSO has pretty much called it quits. However, Yusuke and fellow bandmate Akinobu along with TMGE-alum Kazuyuki have started a band called The Birthday. Their first single, Stupid, will be released on August 23; their second single, untitled as of now, will be released on September 27.

All I know about Futoshi right now, besides being a guest guitarist at various artists' lives, is still his work in KOOLOGI. Their second album, ぶわりと波に鯱 (Buwari to nami ni shachihoko?), is being released on July 26th. You can see a clip from the PV for Dear Bob on their Columbia site. Also, there are some pictures from a recent live on Smashing Mag.

Koji's still keeping busy with Radio Caroline. They're releasing a new album, Heavy Glitter, on September 20. You can see a clip from the PV for Twistin' Head, their latest single that will be on the album, on their Columbia Site. There's also a lot of pictures from recent lives up on Smashing Mag.

As for Kazuyuki, he's just doing the same ol' thing being the drummer of multiple bands; I haven't heard anything about him recently except for joining forces with Yusuke again for The Birthday.

TMGE graphics [15 Jun 2006|07:23pm]

Hi everyone! I don't know if this allowed, so if it's not, feel free to delete it.

Anyways, I made some icons and wallpaper of TMGE and I thought I would share them. Credit is appreciated but not necessary - however please do not claim you made them and please do not post these as downloads on websites. And most importantly, no direct linking. Thank you ♥


You've had too much to think now you need a wifeCollapse )

I just want to say that I do have stuff to post here, it just has to wait till I'm home from vacation and have access to all my resources. Just know that ROSSO is pretty much calling it quits but Yusuke and Akinobu have started another band, this time with Kazuyuki in tow! More info in a couple of days!

In the meantime, you can watch the TMGE and TMGE-related videos I've put on youtube.
