Tokyo Jihen (東京事変) (The Tokyo Incidents) is a Japanese band created by Shiina Ringo (椎名林檎), after leaving her solo career. The band's debut single was Gunjo Biyori, released in September 2004.

Shina had always wished to work with a band and selected her band members while working on her last album, Karuki Zamen Kuri no Hana. The tour band was first introduced as Tokyo Jihen during her Sugoroku Ecstasy tour, featuring guitarist Hirama, PE'Z keyboardist HZM, drummer Hata, and familiar bassist Kameda.

Being part of a band allowed Shina to both spread the work of creating music as well as tone down her public image. She says that many people thought she always dressed up as a nurse or had whips.

In July 2005, keyboardist H zed M and guitarist Hirama Mikio left Tokyo Jihen. HZM returned to his duties as pianist for PE'Z and Hirama returned to his solo career.

In September 2005, keyboardist Izawa Ichiyou and guitarist Ukigumo joined Tokyo Jihen.

As hinted by its name, the band has a running theme modeled on '60s Japanese pulp fiction.

I have to admit that even though I've heard about Shiina Ringo since forever, I'm still a new fan and know pretty much nothing about her or Tokyo Jihen. Hope you guys can educate me and upload me stuff to leech since that's the whole point of tis thread!!! :D

For educational purposes sake then!  :D

Although this is a Tokyo Jihen thread, everyone needs to hear Shiina's final solo album because it's one of the finest pieces of music ever recorded. And that ain't no lie, oh no.

I have a bunch of Tokyo Jihen stuff I'll be uploading unless someone beats me to it. Highly likely with my crappy upload speed. 8)

Do you want it, boykun? I can upload it again when you get your internet back.

Thank you, Stryfe, for the uploads! I don't have Sounan and Shuraba PVs. Maybe I'll upload her albums and PVs later. For educational purposes, of course! :P

Did anyone but Adult's limited edition? I'm curious what the perfume smells like. :D

Thanks for the DLs guys! Good thing the Jpop forum is so dead...I leeched it all :D

Shiina Ringo, I only know her from that animated PV. Gunjou Biyori is just the hottest thing ever!! Thx Stryfe.

Keep educating me, dammit. Is Shiina Ringo 100 a prerequisite for Tokyo Jihen or can I take em both at once at JPH!P University :P

Shiina Ringo x Nakamura Kanzaburo on BokuOn. Shiina wanted to meet Mr. Nakamura because of his kabuki shows or some shit like that >_>

Tokyo Jihen performs Marunouichi Sadistic, Shuraba, and Himitsu. those performances justified how good the new members are. Ukigumo is my guitar hero :lol:



i still have no internet at home -_-   or else i'd upload the performances.

My version of this is titled "Ringo no Uta (Unplugged-Mole Ver.)".
The date on my file is 031224, a week after the release of "Electric Mole", so I'm guessing it's an extra on the Electric Mole DVD??
