Nakano Yoshi isn't on the album.

Anyway, as for the other vocalists, Ken Yokoyama's voice is actually pretty good. The guy playing bass for him looks vaguely familiar.

横山 剣


Yuko Hara from Southern All Stars is another big name here, her voice is great!

Yuto Sakai sounds like a complete wanker:

Tomita Lab made a remix of a CRAZY KEN BAND (Ken Yokoyama's group) song, it's been released last week but it haven't leaked anywhere on the internet yet.

It's Yuu Sakai. I've heard his albums and he used to have a sound focused on soul, R&B and funk until he signed to Office Augusta and his output radically changed, being the video you posted an accurate example of it — STORY is his most famous song since the relaunch of his career.

Anyway, he is a great keyboardist and his singing has always been quite singular, I see why Tomita would pick him.

I can dig em, kinda sounds like the Motown stuff Jihen tried to work with but infinitely more successful/Tomita Lab seems to have a somewhat better understanding of the genre than Izawa or Uki had :-p

Well, I dunno about everyone else, but damn that shit is smooooooooth. If only Ringo had met Tomita Lab earlier/Tomita Lab was in Jihen instead of Izawa... the potential!

Cute PV too.

Anyway, still have the other 2 songs on his new album to hear that feature Ringo, one of which we haven't heard anything of yet and Ringo is the sole vocalist on it.

Am I the only one that hates this Tomita stuff? I felt Izawa's contributions were some of the best to Tokyo Jihen. Tegami, Killer Tune, My Way, Ikiru, Zettai Zetsumei, Brand New Civilization... Am I crazy here?
