Most of the music you'll hear on TJS is written and performed by GO!GO!7188. They are my favorite band. Ever. Period.

This thread is for talking about how much they rule.

Obligatory Question:

Is there a "best" album or a "best" song?
You should put favorite instead of best.

I found out about GO!GO!7188 from Topher and they're soooo good. 569 is probably my favorite album by them, although Antenna is pretty good as well.
Can't wait for the new album :D.

I've only heard 569.
However, I wholeheartedly recommend it to anybody who likes rock. Or has ears.

It's not the same one, but it's as close as I could find. ;) There are gogo references in as many places as I can hide them.

It's kind of sad that no matter how many times I heard Topher mention them I never even bothered to google GO!GO!7188 until I heard fat na kare on tjs. I was blown away by some awesomeness that day!

And If Yumi Nakashima wasn't already Topher's "waifu" she'd totally be mine.=D

Damn! Well while I might never find an asian girl that can rock as hard, I'll find myself an asian woman yet!

Dibs on Akko!
Sure, she's already married, but she can still be mai waifu.
I've got a thing for girls who play Thunderbirds.

I started listening to their Best Of album a few days ago. I love their instrumentals, but the vocals took a bit to get used to. But I loved it after a few more listens.

I like them. Pretty sure most of the people on this site would enjoy them. I also haven't found a way to obtain their entire discography yet. If anyone could hook it up in some way I'd be really grateful since using youtube for long-term music listening is kind of balls.

Right here.


Ouch. It's times like these where I truly curse itunes. I find a band I'm totally willing to legally purchase their music and of course they provide no help since they're a foreign (see non-english) band. I'm also definitely not dropping $50 a CD to import them when I'll be in Japan in four months.

A new song was released for limited download 5 days ago, but I haven't had any luck finding a stream of it or anything. :(
