(also known as G.S. or G-sound)
Imitation over time also brings originality. Poor imitation, almost immediately unique.
How it sounds
Sing Beatles like a pokemon. It is basically early rock and rockabilly in Japanese.
Why listen to it
Because it resembles the soundtrack of a Tarantino movie and to know what influences Tomoyasu Hote had.
Basically to learn the roots of the Japanese Rock & Metal scene.
Because it may sound a bit strange and because it is too Japanese.
And because it resembles the music of Gojira’s early films (the name Godzilla is Americanized. The Japanese do not have an “L”)
Where we meet it
Guess what. In the land of the samurai and the bushido code and where the most beautiful cherries bloom.
When did it start
The early and mid-60s
Who are the pioneers
The Blue Comets with their success “Blue Eyes” in July 1966 is a very important focal point of the genre.
You have to listen
Days of glory
In the mid-’60s in Japan only and in the last scene of Kill Bill No 1 on a more global level.
They are essentially covers by English bands of the first “British Invasion” in America, in Japanese, and purely for domestic consumption.
Later they evolved into a more autonomous current, but poor copying has stigmatized it.
What is it confused with
With Pokemon singing and introductory music from Japanese children’s cartoons.
More correctly with … trolling garage punk.
How do you describe it to an irrelevant person
Do you remember the last scene of Kill Bill part 1, before the massacre a female band was not playing on the ground floor of the restaurant? This!
