Gaijin Kanpai Ep. 197 - Do As I Say, Not As Ayu

Words to live by.


197 - Do As I Say, Not As Ayu
Ayumi Hamasaki - LOVE again | TF6 - Be My Valentine
Download: [MP3]



Love is in the air this week as we review the latest single by the ever-gimmicky Tommy February6, "Be My Valentine," as well as Ayumi Hamasaki's "LOVE again." (Don't forget to shout the first word and whisper the last word like a creeper; typesetting is important!) But are the magicks of February 14th enough to make us fall head-over-heels for this music? Once again we've tricked you into needing to listen to the show! We are evil geniuses.

Disclaimer: Erin talks a great deal about race in the B-roll which may make some listeners uncomfortable.

ACE OF SPADES - WILD TRIBE| AAA - 777 -Triple Seven-

This week we review the latest album from Avex’s favorite co-ed bubblegum group, AAA. We also check out the debut single of ACE OF SPADES, a pop-rock. . . supergroup? Overall it’s a pretty fun episode filled with plenty of mind-expanding diatribes for our listeners to commiserate with.

 *Unless at some point we do, in which case these episode notes will be struck from the record. XOXO
