Grab your lollipops and sideways hats, we're reviewing LM.C! They are...intersting, but they're very popular among the convention-crowd in the US. Now it's time for GK to bite the bullet and let you know what we think. Just because something is popular, doesn't mean it's good. I'm looking at you, Bieber.

 

Negoto is the other end of the spectrum. They try and pick up where Zone and School Food Punishment left off, and those girls put out some Qualid stuff. Let's hope they continue.

 

Gaijin Kanpai records LIVE every Wednesday night at 7:30pm PDT at http://JpopJrock.com/LIVE. Your presence is required.

 

But if you can't...NOTES!

Gaijin Kanpai Ep. 145 - "Rainy Day Music"

I didn't even realize when we titled this episode that the album cover is an umbrella. That crazy Ayaka and her subliminal messages...

Oh! Did you know this week marks GK's 3rd Year Anniversary?! HURRAY FOR US!!!

 

Aforementioned Ayaka returns from hiatus with a much-anticipated album, but is it everyone's cup of tea? Also, Korean Rock Band CNBlue, who started in Japan and then came back after officially debuting in Korea, give us their first #1 Oricon single to review. Finally a rock band from Korea who's not FTisland. I fear they're just as sucky though...

 

Next week, because of my (LoKi) family coming to visit, we will not be doing a uStream. In fact, we won't even be doing News and Charts because we'll be recoding hella early. Hopefully you'll download and listen, because we may have a little surprise to announce  ^_^

 

Until then, notes were taken!
