SuG has decided that they will do a special broadcast over the next few days on Nico! If you don’t remember, SuG had announced a split from PSC and sudden hiatus back in 2012, so this broadcast is quite a rare opportunity! During the 3-day broadcast, SuG will be live, showing behind the scene clips and clips of their music videos from over the years. In addition, they will be giving previews of the album at the end of the second and third day of the program! It seems like an opportunity for the SuG and their fans to come together and reflect on the band’s years together.
Here is the schedule and links if you’re interested!

This band isn’t as old as the two that I did last week and the week before, but someone requested them, and they are a band that really made me remember some good times in my life. Baroque began in June 2001 and ended in December of 2004. They were an S’Cube band, and these days they manage bands like Ruvie and Tokyo Michael.
Vo. 怜 [Ryou]
Gu. 晃 [Akira]
Gu. 圭 [Kei]
Ba. 万作 [Bansaku]
Ryou and Kei have since moved on to kannivalism, and Bansaku as well as Akira are now members of Boogieman. And an interesting fact that I found on vkdb is that all of the members of るう゛ぃえ/Ruvie were roadies for baroque at some point, as well as Tsunehito who is now playing bass in D.
This video I’m sharing with you totally made me cry a year ago when I first saw it. I’m a pansy when I’m on my meds though, so it’s excusable. It has clips from their last live.
Anyone have any good memories about baroque that they’d like to share? Comment, we want to know what or who you miss most. Also if you have a request for next week’s Flashback Friday, let us know and we’ll try our best to make it happen.
Last Friday I did BAISER, and this week Dué le Quartz since they’re in such high demand. Most people have heard the name because of Miyavi, however this band’s members are all pretty awesome.
Dué le Quartz lasted about three years, but managed to go out with a bang and an army of fans. The line-up went like this:
Gu. 雅～みやび～ [Miyabi]
Ba. キカサ [Kikasa]
Today, as most of us already know, Miyabi (now MiyaVi) is a successful solo artist and getting ready to tour Europe.
Sakito and Kikasa later went on to work together on a band named [FIGURe;] who lasted 8 month before stopping activity. Kikasa was in Shelly Trip Realize for a bit before [FIGURe;] and is now the representative of TUXEDO PRODUCTIONS record label that has signed bands such as re:Make (disbanded) and SectMa.

So guys? Any good memories about Duele?
Today we’re going to start something new (or old, depending on how you look at it). You know how usually we introduce new bands? We’re not going to stop that, but what we are going to do is this:
For the entire month of May, on Fridays, we’ll be doing band introductions for older (and probably disbanded) Visual bands. So for all you old time Visual Kei fans that remember way back when, when Luna Sea, X-Japan, and BUCK-TICK were still trendy with their big hair and you miss those days, we’re doing this for you.
Today I’m doing one band that I used to be in love with, and when I heard them on shuffle my love for them just suddenly came back.
Vo. 紫-YUKARI- (ex Endorphine)
Guitar 水月-MIZUKI- (ex Endorphine)
Guitar 零-REI- (ex I’ris, Swallowtail as SIN)
Bass 泰祐-SHAISUKE- (ex Blanche, Penicillin, Swallowtail)
Drums 桂-KATSURA- (ex SHAZNA, Swallowtail, vinett, Cannival Method)
This band started out in 1991 with a completely different line up, however they rearranged themselves (some people left and some people came) until they had the above formation.
They released four singles, three mini-albums, and three full albums while they were still and indie band. They went major in May of 1999 and released 4 more singles and a full album.
I’m not going to go into too much detail because they’re pretty popular and since they’re old there are a lot of websites that have information (and downloads) about them, but here’s a PV so you can get a taste for what they sound like.
If you have any requests for next Flashback Friday let us know~!
