Hello hello hello, S-T.net nibblers! Are you up for another discussion? We loved and envied your rare item collections, but this week, we’re going to change directions a smidge and start with a whole new question!
There are a number of bands out there who’ve made their name on humor and antics, some doing so to the extent that it overshadows their music. Bands like Golden Bomber, Ensoku, and others come to mind. Some serious bands have their own clownish alter-egos, like NIGHTMARE does with Sendai Kamotsu. Different subgenres within visual kei are a contentious enough topic for many fans, but these comedy bands especially tend to be polarizing.
How do you feel about bands that operate on a “gimmick,” especially bands whose gimmick is humor rather than a musical theme? Is there a particular theme band that gets you fired up – for better or worse?
Please keep a few things in mind before you comment:
