Last week Satanyanko announced that it had officially split up. The band began in 2003 and rapidly grew from its catty beginnings (nyanko is Japanese for cat) to being a moody neo-punk outfit more than worthy of its September 2005 appearance at Tokyo Dark Castle. To Mina, Sion, Rie and Hal all I can say is thank you. There are a lot of gaijin who have heard you and love you and we look forward to seeing you guys again. Individually or together – YOU ROCK!

The band’s first split CD is still on sale and two previously unpublished songs should soon appear on a compilation album. I’m certain we haven’t heard the last of them, so don’t stop your support of SATANYANKO!
