Beatbox » The (totally not) Japanese Popstars

October 6, 2010

What a kick-ass and creepy new video from totally-not-Japanese band, The Japanese Popstars!! The trio — Decky Hedrock, Gary Curran, and Gareth Donoghue — hail from Northern Ireland and have gathered a near-cultish following of fans in the few years since they began their musical collaboration. This latest video, for the track Lets Go off the Destroy EP, is illustrated by upcoming T-Shirt Tuesday-er Keaton Henson. The technicolored animation leads us through a thumping hallucination of sea creatures, sausages, geese, guts, and ghastly faces, all to — poof — disappear in a perfectly harmless fluffy white cloud… Ah, those were the days.

If you’re a fan of Boys Noize, Bloody Beetroots, Les Petits Pilous, Benni Benassi, or just great, classic, electronic music meant to get lost in, grab The Japanese Popstars latest album, We Just Are, and give it a good loud listen!

The Japanese Popstars aren’t indie rave, or any other sub-sub-sub genre, theirs is big room, cool as f**k electronic music built for festivals and stadiums. They’re not dance kids aping indie kids, nor are they indie kids dropping synths and calling themselves “ravers”. — via
