4 Sept 2011 – How has everyone been this week? I’m resisting going on a spending spree on YesAsia, even if I have the valid excuse of having more material for the Neo Kei night. Let’s see if my resolve holds out!

NEW VIDEO

As Monday morning is just around the corner, it’s a good thing that there’s a new video from Morning Musume to bring some sparkle. The double A-side single Kono Chikyuu no Heiwa wo Honki de Negatterun da yo!/Kare to Issho ni Omise ga Shitai will be released on 14/09/2011. The first video does look like a cross between Mario Kart and a purikura machine, it’s certainly cute, fun and energetic and sure to lift your mood.

I first started listening to Japanese music when I started university in 2006. Whilst I was taken aback at the first I was soon fascinated by the new styles I heard. This passion is the basis for Neo Kei, for followers and fans of Japanese popular music. Any style of music is welcome. I am particularly enjoy r'n'b and oshare kei, but I listen to many genres such as para-para, euro beat, visual kei, electronica, hip hop, heavy metal, pop, alternative and many many more. Here I will share news on the newest releases, new videos, concert announcements and artist news. I am so working on establishing a regular club night dedicated to Japanese music in Liverpool. No music is too kawaii, dark, abstract or geeky to play! Keep a keen eye on the blogs, Facebook or Twitter as things develop. Feel free to share any bands you like, or music you want to hear on Neo Kei nights or just any J-music news you want to share.
