The Jihen Boys- WHERE ARE THEY NOW
 
This thread is designed to keep people up to date on the happenings of the rest of the Jihen lads (phase 1 and 2) after their breakup, inspired by the recent appearance of Uki and Kameda at VIVA LA ROCK festival.

Here's what I know regarding most recent activities:
Hirama- spokesman for SugiGuitars
HZM- Little solo projects, appears with Ringo live- on Expo 14
Izawa- working with Aiko, solo show, touring with THE HIATUS as a band member
Hata- Appeared on a Tricomi video clip
Kameda- Appeared on VIVA LA ROCK, part of THE TURTLES JAPAN
Uki- Appeared on VIVA LA ROCK, touring with Ringo live, Releasing material under Nagaoka Ryosuke and Petrolz.

Please feel free to fill in gaps or correct me, I will keep this top post up to date.

You have to look for some of them on the streets of Tokyo.

Izawa's been doing some work with Aiko lately, as well as a solo show and touring as a member of The Hiatus.

Spokesman for SugiGuitars.

Hirama Interview


Part time member of a band named Plenty, occasionally works with Elephant Kashimashi and Superfly. Started touring solo again in 2013.

Also in 2013, HZM mentioned on Twitter that he saw a beautiful young woman with a guitar at a busy crosswalk. He later confirmed it was Hirama Mikio.

But, like, what has Phase 1 achieved for the last decade that justifies their leaving Tokyo Jihen. I want a step by step breakdown =p

H ZETT M collab with Hatsune Miku, duh

deadgrandma 2015.06.28 06:25 PM

Hirama did bang a weeb... So there's that

Scribble R 2015.06.29 02:59 PM

So I guess that Shiina Ringo was too horrible/intense to work with at the time (and she's been apologising ever since =P)

The Most Curious Thing 2015.06.29 03:26 PM

in all seriousness H ZETT M was entirely jusified in bailing out

the man has had smorgasbord solo albums, solo piano albums, concept albums, live recordings, all his work with PE'Z, and now a new trio project

it's all hit or miss, and I would *love* to hear an alternate universe Variety with more HZM compositions than Izawa+Uki compositions, but he's pumped out enough content to justify his leaving
