Let's start now

Hikashu is an avant-pop band from Japan, formed in 1978, never disbanded, and still going strong.

They are everything. Well-written compositions, masterful improvisation, mystique voice, openness, and absolute sense of humor.

I will write this blog for foreign audience. Comments, corrections and feedback are welcome.


  1. Hi! Thanks for this blog. It's very interesting for those of us who are into Japanese indies.

    I'd like to know more about the history of punk/new wave in Japan. Do you know any good websites/books with bios etc? Thanks!

  3. Hi. Gracias por sus comentarios.

    Actually you know a lot about the scene, far better than I. So I have nothing to say, except giving my gratitude for so much interest in Japanese indies. Thank you and keep digging the scene.
