Japanese all-girl rock: Exist † Trace

The Japanese music scene is so much more than ‘just’ J-pop and Kawaii Metal (although the former is slowly starting to grow on me (what’s wrong with me???) and I am absolutely crazy about the latter).

Here is an example of a) a group playing music you might not associate with Japan and b) is played by an all-girl group. Growing up with grunge, I guess they’re the Metal Riot-Grrrls of Nippon.

Here’s the rock, loads of outfits and a song about ginger from a band with a cross in their name, Exist † Trace.

Oh Japan – Special fitness or a restaurant?

As previoisly mentioned, I love how the Japanese can use English in a way that opens up for completely new, surreal possibilities.

Like my local…I’m guessing physiotherapists, which advertises itself as a ‘guts trainer’.

Of course, they might be specialising in training your courage…or just selling really spicy food…
