[14 Jun 2011|01:11am]

You can now internationally purchase Yosuke Sakanoue's new album "THE POPS" on Amazon JP for 1800 yen.


If you want to sample any of the songs in advance, they premiered some of the songs on a USTREAM live chat recently. It is archived so you can play it anytime! Be warned that they talk through some of them.

LOTS of news [27 May 2010|03:05am]

[ mood | cheerful ]

I don't want this community to die... I want to keep it updated hopefully. All Sakkan fans are precious.

As a 5 member band for now, but right now their replacement drummer is "Takoyaki Boy." He's performed with them 5 times so far.


Myspace (same as before, but updated)
Youtube (new)

You can find live photos from their 3 night one-man live series ("one-man" means it's only them performing) here:

flickr photos

I believe that Kingfisher Jr. is over. It hasn't officially been said, but now that Yosuke is busy with SPASPA again I can't see him and TOMI YO continuing it. RADIO FLOWER is also over (it ended in January), but Yosuke is apparently coming back on ustream in June. Sora Izumikawa of SPIRAL SPIDERS is restarting her old radio show Soradio on ustream at 10 pm Thursday (Japan time) here. Be sure to tune in! Sora also has an official twitter and a twitter for her radio program.

The concerts that SPIRAL SPIDERS have been doing have been a secret live in February, the 3 night only one-man series of lives in March (in Tokyo and Osaka), and just this past weekend at an Antinos 10 year anniversary concert with Kinya Kotani.

SUMMER 2009 [03 Apr 2009|01:14am]

Yosuke has been posting in his blog very often lately, to say that he's starting up again with music and art and lots of activity this summer.

He just posted this video on his new youtube account! (I think he was using mitsubaco's before)

Also, i'm not sure if you can still do it, but he's replying to emails at sakanoue@jacobetty.com
You can ask questions like what he's been up to, what's his favourite colour, etc. Go crazy.

Shimokita Donburi promotional songs [18 Nov 2008|01:28am]

I found this site recently where you can hear the songs that SPIRAL SPIDERS recorded before they broke up - they were promoted along with the opening of the Shimokita Donburi restaurant.

Hakaioh has been featured on Yosuke's blog through imeem and their myspace, but you can hear the FULL VERSION on this website. I highly recommend it!!

Click the other two links in blue on the site and you can hear "Mr.Frypan man" and "Shimokita Dondondondonburi."


As you can see, the lyrics are also provided for all the songs, including full lyrics for Hakaioh.

Please enjoy these, everyone!
I hope you're all keeping up-to-date with Kingfisher Jr.'s weekly broadcasts.

Next KFJ broadcast is on Tuesday, if you didn't catch this past friday's announcement.

This is from Sora's blog, "Soranikki" at her website sorasora.com. I thought you might be interested in the bolded parts :]. I must tell you though that I'm still very much a beginner at Japanese!

FYI: Sora, a dog owner, volunteers at dog shelters. She's also involved in some "wanko" merchandise ("wanko" is like a cute name for a puppy or dog). The only brand I'm familiar with is Daisuke Asakura's, which is ironic as he produced Yosuke.

[ mood | jubilant ]

kingfisher jr. has an online broadcast from 20:00 ~ 21:00 JAPAN TIME every Friday, and you can see it on their myspace, so be sure to tune in!
The very first broadcast is July 11th (Japan time. May be earlier in your location).

There is also a CHAT ROOM that you need an account to log in to with Ustream.

If you've never participated in one of these before, with an account, you can type a message to the musicians and they'll read it instantly and you can see their reactions/responses right away on-screen.

ブライス/Buraisu [22 Dec 2007|04:51am]

[ mood | tired ]

Happy Birthday Takashi!

Back in October, I requested a translation of ブライス through a Japanese music translation project website called "Mognet." I've come to realize Buraisu is "Blythe" (as in the dolls). I translated a very in-depth description of CALL, including Buraisu, which said the song is as if it's in the point-of-view of a Blythe doll, with its huge eyes, and looking at everything wrong with people. 人は悲しい生物だ!
I didn't post about it before, but this summer I had the opportunity to hear Buraisu/Blythe live, and it is absolutely maaaniic.

I just got the translation today. If you have the original kanji (in CALL's booklet or whatever), feel free to point out any errors :0. My Japanese skill is still too limited to make any sense of Yosuke, so that's why I'm too wary of doing this myself. I'd like to think he's weird anyway, though.

Yes, I'm new. [14 Jun 2007|02:04pm]


So, I'm new here - I just found this community. Very nice!
Yeah, I actually didn't think that I'd like Spiral Spiders, until the day I saw them in concert - I love them! They've become one of my favorites. I really wish they had more out - Ah well, I'm rooting for them all the way!

Also, is there a community just for the whole band? I wanted to make a community for the band, but I don't want to if there already is one or if you guys disapprove.

FUTURE lyrics~ [08 Jan 2007|04:22pm]

Hello community~ ^^

Again I've spent some time with my eyebrows glued together, pondering on different meanings and phrasings and whatnot, and thus far I've been able to produce a (shaky?) translation of the lyrics of the two a-tracks of 1981~FUTURE~. The last track on the single - like the other 1981-singles - doesn't have lyrics printed for them, so every translation would only be speculative.

Lyrics sheet provided kindly by maskalade

Alan e no tegamiCollapse )

Overall, this song was a bitch to translate is very YOSK-ish, and ponders on the general situation of the world and the person's place in it. (Wow for summaries. XD)

Boku no namae wa...Collapse )

Every time I look at these lyrics, I feel like there's something missing. o_o I mean, they're so... short! And... fairly simple! What! But the song itself is nice. ^^ I think it is in the same theme with Letter to Alan. :o

Corrections, suggestions and generally all comments are welcome. :3

Maniatte Imasunde lyrics~ [29 Dec 2006|12:46pm]

[ mood | accomplished ]

Now, conpeitou saved most of us a lot of work by transcribing the lyrics for Maniatte Imasunde. (Which you can romanize just about any way you want: maniatteimasunde, mani atte imasu n de, ma ni atte imasu n de, take your pick :p) So thank you~ ^^

kanji, romaji & attempted translation for Maniatte ImasundeCollapse )

So in short, I would say this song is about anarchy against the system, surprise surprise. :p I think especially against salaryman-typed white-collar-workers. Oh, and of course, about Supasupa's favourite Western artists. XD

So, they are releasing another single by the name of Kepic. I have nooo ideaaa whatsoever what "kepikku" means, other than that Kepic is the last name of a musician who was in the German metal band "Jaded Heart"... If someone has inside information, be sure to let us know~ :3

Mobile distribution means you can only download the songs with a Japanese cellphone. -_-

PS. I've asked the Supasupa site staff about overseas shipment (and why maskalade's emails have been ignored x(), and you'll be sure to know when (if >_>;) I get an explanation.

Spiral Spiders Website Updates [23 Oct 2006|08:30pm]

[ mood | chipper ]

Hello all, there are a lot of new updates on the Spiral Spiders website. ^^ First of all, there are new entries to Sakkan's blog (Yosk's Voice) with silly pictures as usual.

Apparently, Sakkan and 4401/Sora have delved into the world of fashion. (XD) They have their own "brand" now, called Baby Spiders, and it is designed by Sakkan himself. They had some sort of presentation/sales event yesterday, and 60 people were able to get in. I have no idea what this is about, really... XD

Also, the staff's journal has been updated. ^^

And they're all worked up for Christmas too already!! Spiral Spiders will hold a free live in Yoyogi on Christmas Eve. ^^

If you haven't checked out Supasupa-kun's Travels-blog, please do so immediately. XD

(I'll really try to translate something later... >_<)

First, I decided to rip my copy of Sakkan's 1981 ~PAST~-single up for grabs. I'll include lyrics too (since they came with the single), but I shall be posting just one song at a time. x) There aren't any pictures included in this single, so no scans.

[31 Jul 2006|09:42am]

Greetings, everyone!

This is Sefie, formerly known as vinyacarkaiel. I bring you my most heartfelt apologies for neglecting this community. Please forgive me. To my defense, I'll say that in the beginning of summer 05, there was an incident that kept me hospitalized all summer. After that, it has been very, very slow recovering. Earlier this spring a good friend of mine passed away suddenly, which again got me immobile for a while.

However, a comment left on my DA account got me curious of how this community fares now, and I've sadly discovered that it is quite dead. My humble apologies, everyone.

So, as of now, I declare sakkan revival! I'll start working on translating info from the new Spiral Spiders site as well as some other things.

Yoroshiku na!
