GK PV Play: Sin and Seduction Edition

Many music videos are released every month in Japan to promote the latest single or album coming out. Though we often talk about the music videos that accompany the music we review, some PVs slip through the cracks. This week we task our lovely writer with the difficult job of reviewing some of the recent vids to make their way all the way from Japan to our computer screens in the US.


Verbal - BLACKOUT feat. Amuro Namie and Lil Wayne
Hamasaki Ayumi - You and Me
Koda Kumi - Watchu Waitin' On
Perfume - Spending All My Time

Gaijin Kanpai Ep.151 - "Roller-Coaster of Suck"

Live from New York....it's recorded


151 - Roller-Coaster of Suck
Hamsaki Ayumi - Party Queen | Crystal Kay - DELICIOUS na Friday


I'm in the Big Apple getting ready for the L'Arc~en~Ciel concert this weekend, so I'm not writing you a fancy intro. Deal with it. I still love you though...eventhough I hit you sometimes.


This week we review JPOP  Queen, Hamasaki Ayumi. Can someone ever be demoted for "Queen"? I think this may be one of those special cases. Surprisingly (to me) Crystal Kay is quite enjoyable, so the episode redeems itself in quality music, imho. Please enjoy it!


If you like us, and how could you not, hang out with us Wednesday nights at 7:30pm PST for ouruStream live recording. It grows every week, and thankfully you guys correct us sometimes :)
