The professional goofballs in Gokigen Teikoku had their first one-man over the weekend. It looks like it was a pretty fun time!
I keep forgetting that you can download Gokigen Teikoku’s debut “Important Notice” single:

You all know that I can’t Japanese, like at all. I can recognize names, and occasionally phrases that I’ve seen written a bunch of times and I know what they sound like and mean in English, but that’s “reading” in the sense that making Pop Tarts is “cooking.”

Start your Sunday with a trip through the most meta thing you’ll see today.
The Indies So Indie They Bailed on Their Indie Management to Go Super-Indie, aka Gokigen Teikoku, filmed a video (their first!) the other day, with some of their biggest fans in attendance as de facto extras. And, uh, they also filmed themselves being filmed.

That’s a pretty fun clip! Continue reading
- They went indie and changed their name
- They tweet extensively in very good English and like to interact with fans in a plethora of languages
- They clearly do whatever the hell they feel like
I’d been waiting for a good chunk of live video or, heaven forbid, an actual MV before touting them too extensively here, but then they went and forced my hand. Continue reading
