    A strange one. The music isn’t much to my ears but the eye candy is amazing.

    Thanks for posting The Hu links. I’ve been a fan since discovering them last year. Think I posted a few clips of them on another forum.
    Just found one on this thread - - - -

    Not really Asian Music. Only the words are Japanese but I can’t find any English translation on the web apart from the title which translates as ‘Autumn Rain’.

    To my eyes he’s as camp as a row of pink tents despite being surrounded by a troup of glam looking ‘babes' . The English translation is weird.

    I have been a fan of Ryuichi Sakamoto for years even back in Yellow Magic Orchestra days. But my favourite Japanese group of all times is Pizzicato Five. I miss them. Now I like Gen Hoshino and Lyrical School but I also like many Taiwanese, Chinese and Korean groups with a few Thai and Indonesian thrown in.

    They may be hilarious but in what way are they either Japanese or Asian apart from the lyrics?

    So as an antidote lets go back approximately 300 years.

    Yes, they are but the music is totally standard western pop/rock and roll. If you close your eyes the only thing that would indicate anything Japanese is the words are sung in that language.
