... I bet you think that's pretty clever, don't you boy?" Name that tune in one. Anyway, enough of my pish. Three posts, one day, what is this madness? Well, even though I'm not in Tokyo at the moment there are still things I can be doing on this blog. Tinterweb is a wonderful thing and I still have access to the recorded music even if I don't have access to the gigs themselves. Fooel is out there reporting from the frontline so I should probably be doing more from the comfort of my front room. No big promises because work is mad and laziness is always there in the background, but I'll see what I can do.

Hailing from Ibaraki, Japan, world renowned JROCK band, MUCC announces the release of their latest album "Shion" in November and their first headlining U.S. shows for NY and LA this December.
In 1997, Miya (Guitar) formed MUCC with Satochi and Tatsuro (Vocal), while they were high school students. YUKKE (Bass) joined the band in 1999 and at that moment MUCC formed the perfect lineup.
MUCC debuted in Europe back in 2006, and the following year performed at Otakon anime convention in Baltimore. They continued to tour Europe and performed at the JROCK Revolution festival in Los Angeles in 2007.
ROCK/PUNK guru Kevin Lyman brought them into the Rockstar Taste of Chaos tour in 2008, sharing the same stage as Bullet for my Valentine and Avenged Sevenfold.
In October 2008, MUCC was once again invited back to the Rockstar Taste of Chaos International and toured overseas in Europe and Asia, with friends, Atreyu, As I Lay Dying and Story of the Year.
No, it's not a gangsta style Sesame Street character. Rather, it's "upbeat adrenaline fueled anti-folk music" and it kicks arse.
The man's on tour in a global Megalopolis near you in the coming months (see sneakily grabbed screenshot below). There's no excuse, get thy arses out and support.
