387-

10 Nov

I’ve been waiting with baited breath to write about this one. C is for Candy Spooky Theater. The name screams out kooky Japanese and that’s okay. Their style is visual kei mixed with an everyday is Halloween goth feel. But the big thing is the music. Now I’m not going to lie. Jack Spooky’s vocals are an acquired taste. The grace that I talked about two days ago when I spoke about TM Revolution, it’s not here. Try and picture someone trying but failing to emulate the Justin Warfield baritone (She Wants Revenge) in Japanese. It takes some getting used to. But the music is immediately striking. It’s got a dark vibe that screams out to you from the first listen. It’s electronica meets Marilyn Manson and ends up with something that resembles Sleepytime Gorilla Museum. I’m going to suggest you find their song “Nejimaki Denki Isu” (Wind-up Electric Chair) and give it a try. But for my post, I’m definitely going with the first song I ever heard from them.
