Gunma, Japan (1985 – present)

BUCK-TICK (バクチク) is a Japanese rock band, formed by Imai Hisashi in 1985 in Gunma, Japan. They are commonly credited as one of the founders of the visual kei movement. Their musical style is very hard to describe as they keep changing it and developing their music all the time.

The band members are 櫻井敦司 (Sakurai Atsushi) (vocals), 今井 寿(Imai Hisashi) (guitars, noises, electronics, vocals), 星野 英彦 (Hoshino Hidehiko) (guitars, chorus), 桶口豊 (Higuchi Yutaka) (bass) and ヤガミ・トール (Yagami Toll) (drums).

BUCK-TICK have performed with, for example, Marilyn Manson, KMFDM, Soft Ballet, LUNA SEA and The Yellow Monkey. The band members have also participated in different side-projects, such as Schwein (Sakurai and Imai with Raymond Watts (Pig) and Sascha Konietzko (KMFDM)).

    Yes, it is (: And Henshin [Reborn]. And Sakura. And... the whole of Kurutta Taiyou I guess?

    Am I the only one who thinks the song Angel Fish is unbelievably underrated or what?

    Imai and Morioka dance battle, maybe? :D Also, the latter is so busy these days, I'm expecting the best.

    Btw it seems like there were some other guest musicians involved in the single: Cube Juice, YOW-ROW (GARI vocalist) and Ken Morioka. (source)

    Hm, the preview is too short to judge. Doesnt sound interesting, but lets see how the full song turns out. B-Side industrial-like? Nice.

    These beautiful songs of Buck- Tick tend to grow on me, especially if they have a hint of sadness underneath the surface. But yes, it does remind one of Heaven and also Love Parade (: It isn't a bad thing, as long as the whole album is not like that.

    Yeah, I hope the album will sound more exciting than... this. xD Sounds like a leftover variation of their song HEAVEN or something. B-side is supposed to be industrial-like and electro/dance-y tho, apparently.

  • crossparallel Pretty (: If Imai is to trust, though, it seems like they are following a Memento Mori style promotion - calmer, beautiful single and a bit edgier album.

    You know, looking at the new picture, I can't help but think that just like 13kai was their peculiar kind of goth, this is going to be their kind of surrealism and no one else's (: Also, the theme just begs for some quirky music and a nice video.
