tokyo jihen

東京事変 is a Japanese pop/rock group that I just caught on TV today. A lot of the music is kind of jazz-styled so it's not really my thing, but their performance of the lead singer 椎名林檎(Shena Ringo)'s song 「ここでキスして」(Kiss me here) blew me away. I think I will have to go buy their live dvd. Their performance rocked! Apparently Shena debuted in 1998 but the band only formed recently. I love these random TV shows. There are entertainers like Hamasaki Ayumi and then there are entertainers like 東京事変。The difference in emotion and expressive power is severe.
