So there’s this one guy I’ve heard of before, Mushi (that’s Japanese for insect isn’t it?). Anyway, looks like we got a Japanese answer to the shock rocker, Marilyn Manson. Is M. Manson really a shock rocker? I don’t know, he doesn’t seem that shocking….. but when I chill out with one of his discs, I find myself thinking hard-edged glam rock. Yep, I’m gonna place M. Manson in a tastefully colored box marked neo-glam.

Anyway, Mushi’s gonna be putting in a show at Pineal Presents Pagan Portrait on November 5th at Super Live Theater Area in Takadanababa (try saying that three times quick) with Pineal and Scorpions Death Rock. There’s other acts, of course, but these one’s raised Igor’s eyebrow. I must say, they have a very classy promo site (sorry Japanese only, but the pix are amazing).

And you just need to check out the horned Pineal himself. Looks like any anglo-Goth would be right at home from the first bite.
