(Group) Party Rockets / Tokyo Rockets
« on: August 21, 2014, 07:38:43 PM »
Well, as no one here seems to have them on their radar, I suppose I have to open the topic.

PARTY ROCKETS


Left to right: Fumika, Haruka, Akari

Party Rockets are a rock unit, now consisting of three members:
Haruka Yoshiki (Leader) - 1998.7.1 - red
Akari Fujita - 1999.6.24 - yellow
Fumika Kikuchi - 1999.7.20 - blue

official site: www.partyrockets.net/
official Twitter: twitter.com/Party_Rockets

They have no album yet. But I post the MV for their 5th single, about to be released on 2014.08.27, named KASABUTA.

I nearly forgot:
Party Rockets will release their first album this year.  :twothumbs It will be called Triangle and be released on the 17th of decembre.
The previous single songs will be new recorded, so that it will be version of the three current members.

On 15.11.2014 they will held their first One-Man-Live at Shinjuku Blaze, including a live band. Too bad, I can't make it there.

And john_hung posted in the idolwhore thread about a sister group, named Tokyo Rockets. More Heavy Metal style. Something to look out for.

I bought the album on release last December. Good stuff. I've been listening to it a lot in the past few days. On the 14 songs they have, there's like 2 that I don't like, the rest are all good. It would be cool if they did shows with an actual band, but that's true for many other groups like Fruitpochette for example.

Anyway, good stuff so far. I'll keep a eye on them.

They will release a live DVD in April where they are back-upped by a live band ;)

I miss Konno Yuuka, I can't put my finger on what it is about her but I really liked her for some reason (and I don't even think she's pretty) seems like she dropped singing completely :(

She still updates her twitter -> https://twitter.com/yuuka0515yuuka

Just for reference a couple of videos of Party Rockets when she was still in the group:

Party Rockets does a split tour with Otome Shinto. They will perform some songs together as Supergroup, hence the name (Otome Rockets).
I am curious how it turns out. Their styles don't match. I will report about it!

Cool, looking forward to it (I assume that means you're going to Japan again).

Any news on Tokyo Rockets, they upload videos all the time but it's just the members talking, I would like to hear about their music.

I know that Tokyo Rockets appear in some small festivals. But never saw them. Maybe mixedmedia can say something about them?
But I would like to see Tokyo Rockets some time too.

Good stuff, I just can't wrap my head around why they would make two groups with pretty much the same sound/concept!

And.... a video is finally up



Sounds pretty much exactly like Party Rockets.

Didn't realize I was mentioned in here. I haven't seen Tokyo Rockets perform yet. I did see Party Rockets at @JAM the field 6 and they were awesome!

Akari is now a support member for GALETTe since Ayano's graduation. I was meaning to go see them but couldn't get to any of the events in time.

Party rockets is a good band so I'm not bothered by this but, yeah... I had the same reaction at first. This definitely sounds like Party Rockets, especially when the vocals start. The song is still pretty good.

Something strange is happening former member Konno Yuuka has started a new twitter account with a new name Yume Hayasaki!

I'm kinda confused I didn't know pop idols used fake names I'm aware that AV idols do it for obvious reasons.

Anyways it seems like she's back in the idol "business" since she's linking to what seems to be an idol agency.

Here is her new account https://twitter.com/yume_hayasaki

(hmmm it's already the first of April in Japan)

Anyone getting the DVD releasing this week? I really like this band and I'm tempted to get it. It's just, importing stuff from Japan is a little pricy so I'm hesitant. It would have been cool if they had posted a small 2 minute preview of the show, just so we have a good idea of what we're getting.

I think I'll wait for reviews and impressions. I'll probably still get it at some point.

Well, you should check Youtube. There you find a video of the show, released last year even ;)


And btw, I ordered the DVD of course!

I looked right before making that post. :doh: Perhaps I didn't use the right keyword.

I guess the show was half pre-recorded music, and half with the band. It looks decent though.

Because names like Yumemi Nemu (Dempagumi), First Summer Uika (BILLIE IDLE), and Kohime Lit Pucci (Afilia Saga) could totally be their real names, right? I'm just messing with you but never assume anyone's name in the entertainment business is their real name. Yamada Nana (ex-NMB48) changed her last name (Nakayama) when she auditioned/joined NMB48 for whatever reason.

On topic: Sae from Tokyo Rockets is awesome!
