Golden Bomber is an indie visual kei band i’ve gotten into recently, due to the fact that they’re suddenly appearing on tv so much it’s hard to miss them.
I really don’t understand the concept of visual kei but this group is so funny that i can somewhat appreciate visual kei now. As much as they are as a band, they almost never play instruments in their lives, and rely entirely on an iPod for the bgm. All the guitar strumming/drumming is fake,and only the vocal part is sang live by their band leader, who happens to also compose the music and lyrics for their group.
I’ll give them a better introduction in my next post but meanwhile, checkout their latest song, Dance My Generation!
(The second song is their all-time hit, Memeshikute, which has been performed on major music shows throughout 2012.)
