Underground Japanese punk rock bandmore...
formed in 2001 by bassist
, TAKU, and guitarist
Their music initially began as straight edge hardcore punk rock
but eventually faded to more appealing melodic softcore pop punk
, with most songs written after 2002 being written in English by frontman, TJF.
Established all-girl pop punk
, in 2002, which eventually grew larger than its founding fathers themselves.
Despite losing drummer
, HIRO, in early 2003, Inari
resurrected old school
punk rock to hundreds of Australian Japanese
Eventually evolved into NRE
after months of collaboration with Machikara
Used mostly by Mitch, who <Gets Mitchy>. Is characterized by pointing both index fingers out with thumbs pointing up, in the shape of a gun. Is followed by repeating your name twice.
"PaulPaullll! <powpow>. I'm Mitch the Bitch! <powpow>"
Formed in 2002 by Australian Japanese punk rock band
, Machikara consisted of Machiko (guitar and vocals), Chisato (guitar and vocals), Eri (bass and vocals), and Hanako (drums).
Played mainly Shonen Knife
style pop punk
in short bursts of pure energy. Directly influenced by Inari
in terms of song structure and riff compositioning, but began to create their own structure. Machikara originally used Inari
's guitar, bass and drum rigs when playing at the same location, but later went on to preserve this sound in independent concerts. Therefore the actual 'sound' of their instruments is identical to Inari
's and some criticize them for copying.
Eventually outgrew Inari
in general popularity and played in over a dozen different public concerts in 2002, and headlined kick up the dust in 2003 and guest featured at dancekool 2003 in front of thousands.
lost their drummer, Machikara often featured remaining...
Dates 24 girls but dumps them as soon as he finds a new one. A smoozer to the core, oily as an Asian wok, and white as paper. Calls himself the Asian Girl Carousel (AGC), and tells the girls he dates that it stands for the All German Club. Most notably, he guns you, as in after he's walked all over you, and pretends like everything is still dandy, he'll give you the guns
. On good days, he will repeat your name twice. When he is in a hurry, he will get Mitchy with you in a drive-by gun fashion.
"JillJill...!! <pow pow> Howwww's it goin? Yeah? Oh man, I'm so pumped! Let me tell you what, JillJill...I've gotta go do something completely selfish and unhelpful to anyone but myself...see ya 'round, JillJill! <powpow>"
a very snotty person
my friend becky is such a shnob
Formed in early 2003 by previous Inari
(bass) and TJF
(guitar, vocals). Features Machikara
members, Machiko (guitar, lead vocals), Eri (bass guitar, vocals), and Hanako (drums).
Played mainly 'remixed' versions of old Inari
songs, but possessed four of their own Japanese punk rock
songs written by Machiko and TJF titled, "six past f***ing midnight", "We will never forget", "Sakura" and "Falling".
Their sound is original and experimental, often using guitars to emulate the sound of Japanese instruments such as the koto and shamisen. Machiko's voice sounds the most beautiful, unlike her typical Shonen Knife
sounding voice in Machikara
, and she skilfully emulates a traditional bunraku voice to off beat punk rock
. Machiko sings most vocals in NRE
, but is accompanied by TJF in songs, "We will never forget" and "Falling".
Quite surprisingly, the music only contains a hint of punk ro...
