Interestingly enough this is a great metal band loved by metalheads and an entire audience who probably do not even know they are a metal band thanks to their hugely successful side project (more on that later)

SAVATAGE.

From the classic 80s-




Into the 90s with a new singer, sadly with the loss of the founding member and guitarist in a traffic accident- RIP chris oliva

His brother Jon kept the band together and produced a legendary album about the bosnian war -dead winter dead
that would eventually lead to the creation of the "trans siberian orchestra" project

Shonen Knife was instrumental to my learning Japanese. I can clearly remember the first time I actually understood what they were singing, which kept me taking Japanese classes in university.

I stumbled onto them from a song they did for the Powerpuff Girs back in the day. What stood out was how much their song reminded me of the Ramones. Almost like they did it on purpose. I did a little research and found out they were big fans of the Ramones and the song was in fact inspired by the Ramones. More so they had put out a tribute album under the title of Osaka Ramones which I immediately hunted down. I loved their Ramones covers so I checked out some of their own songs and while not bad, it wasn't what I was looking for in my music at the time. I gave it another go a few years later and I found more songs I enjoyed and at least wasn't bothered by the rest. They have a few songs that are in my playlist, but the rest require a certain mood for me to listen to.

that is a bit of nostalgia. as more of a metal head i was never a fan of shonen knife.

There was some cross pollination between bands showing up on anime soundtracks. as far as regular bands go i really started with a pop rock group called pink sapphire then found out about legends like show-ya, anthem and X-japan. remembering at the time in the late 80's finding out about anything going on in Japanese entertainment media was non-existent where i live aside from what i could translate out of my new-type magazine issues.

@Peterhausenn: Honestly, Shonen Knife have two, maybe three albums (Let's Knife, Rock Animals, and possibly 712) that I enjoy from start to finish. I played them to death when I first got into them, and now they live in the same space as They Might Be Giants-- bands I revisit periodically but don't want to listen to everyday.

@aphyon: The bands you mention are seminal, but by the time I got here they were essentially Classic Rock, like Lynyrd Skynyrd or the Doors. That's not a knock on any of them, but they're not getting a lot of airplay right now. Heck, Yoshiki is playing piano at Carnegie Hall these days!

SEIKIMA II just announced another black mass special event. and show-ya just came out with an album, but yeah i have been listening to Japanese bands for a very long time.

X-japan really only had 4 great albums (well one was an epic 30 minute single) before they self destructed. kind of the candle that burns too bright scenario.

I started listening to Aikawa Nanase when she was new in the mid 90s, after the foxtrot album i kind of lost interest, here material after she went on hiatus to start a family just wasn't the same.

Hard to believe now that onmyo-za was an indie band when i first got hooked on them 20 years ago.

Hotei, sex machineguns, the brilliant green/tommy are also on my short list of favorite bands along with a few lesser known groups like fatima hill, manipulated slaves, go!go!7188, and galmet.

In more recent years i have picked up newer stuff from groups like bridear (just got their into the dark forever 2021 tour shirt in the mail) and yousei teikoku.

I also like to try and catch the special naon no yaon events Show-ya puts on for female rock musicians.

I can’t listen to Saxon without thinking that Spinal Tap did it so much better

I know it’s unfair, but I can’t help it…

Spinal Tap, Def Leopard, Black Sabbath and all those...I've never been there. Y'know I'd recognise one of their songs but not have a scooby that its actually one of theirs.

Funny you should mention Saxon. they just released their 24th studio album. as contemporaries of judas priest and iron maiden during the boom of the NWOBHM (new wave of british heavy metal) they are just as good but never had the same level of commercial success. One has but to listen to songs like-"great white buffalo, iron wheel, requiem" and a host of other songs that prove their skill as musicians. They have been consistently good for the last 40 years. and seem to never stop putting out great music.

Spinal Tap came from a parody film, which out heavymetalled many heavy metal bands

The film has direct parallels from a Saxon tour film. It’s awesome. Go watch it, and then watch the commentary track where the cast do a 20 year retrospective in character. It’s bloody brilliant!

On that recommendation then, it looks like I've got some homework!

In a bit of irony when this came up i was in the middle of listening to the entire saxon catalog. after 20+ studio albums, re-recordings and live albums i have finally finished it (until the new album gets here).

Now the hard part-choosing an older and newer song to represent the band.

I chose a well known one and a lesser known one i like.

Crescent City Fl..

in an unexpected turn of events Youtube recommended this band o me the other morning. I never know what youtube will recommend but I've enjoyed a fair bit over the last few years.
This is , The Cambodian Space Project.

My first thoughts were way back to blood sport. The feds eating and the local officer coming to talk to them. "wont you join us? " - "No thank you, I never eat here."
Yes I realize it's not the same country, it just popped into my head.

It's way better than you might expect. They do at least one song you may have heard over these last few years in a Tarantino movie.
(Chick Habit, I think,)

I do enjoy Scorpions. I saw them when they were touring for Love At First Sting, and they put on a great show. Also, I remain proud that my fellow Arizonans were such enthusiastic fans that they wrote a song about us!

Lovely bit of Bob Vylan. This time, a PSA of sorts. I mean absolutely zero disrespect when I say this kind of reminds me of the sort of public information songs you might see on Sesame Street.
