Personally, I’m an Ensoku fan, but I know I’m outnumbered by the Chemical Pictures fans out there. And why not? — the band was pretty stellar. That being said, it makes me happy to announce comedic band Ensoku’s latest addition: Chemical Pictures’s former guitarist, Joe! (Pictured second from the right, above.)
The big reveal — at least as far as the internet’s concerned — happened via Twitter in the wee hours of the morning on February 11th. Joe has made a Twitter for his activity in Ensoku, and announced his joining a few hours after the band’s February 10th one-man.
Starting with yesterday’s Shibuya O-WEST one-man I’ve formally become a member of the band “Ensoku”. Thank you to everyone who came. Please support me from here out — coming soon
Mere minutes after Joe’s reveal, Minoru made mention of it on the band’s official blog as well.
From the band’s blog (http://ameblo.jp/ensoku-blog/entry-11468030897.html):
This is Minoru-ko
At the one-man this time joe also participated, and we had new costumes, and also we announced many things
Like a July one-man at Shibuya O-EAST β
Well about that, Buu is itching, itching, itch-ing, i-t-c-h-i-n-g to write about it, he wants to write about it, so I’ll leave it to Buu Ω
Including this just-announced live, Ensoku has three upcoming one-mans and three upcoming event lives, so there are only a few chances right now to go catch this bizarre, entertaining, and just plain fun band live, complete with their newest member. You won’t regret it!
