Hello and welcome to JGoth.com, a news and information blog dedicated to Japanese Gothic, industrial and underground music. Igor is rebuilding the site after a couple of years offline, so please be patient. Hey check the RSS feed for updates.
After a few months buried under work Igor has finally got around to writing an update. Today, I’m just want to show off my Psydoll CD, which I picked up at the Artism Market in April when I got a chance for a chat with Nekoi Psydoll and the gang.
Psydoll are a concept band whose sounds are built around the idea of escaped rogue robots from a slightly darkened near-future Japan:
Japanese companies (including S#NY, Mit#ubishi, Hit#chi, S#nyo and P#nasonic) usually use the word “DOLL” to name their production robots for military, business and home use. However, PSYDOLL (Psycho-Doll) are illegal robots manufactured and remodeled without proper licenses and with enhanced abilities unlike other “DOLLs”. View full article »
I still have not had enough time to get into the site yet, but this event is too good not to mention! On Sunday March 10 from 3:30 pm, the Goths will be invading Ikebukuro Rosa Live Inn in Tokyo! Organizers are calling this Gothic 2013 SPRING FESTIVAL, and festive it is!
Featured bands include Psydoll, Vanished Empire (DJ Chihiro and 2Bullet’s Dee Lee), Suicide Squad, Dark Insanity, Zodiaque, Hernia_44, PeaceToPieces and Gothic Logic! There will also be DJs Chihiro, Wakana and tAk, along with exhibition space, fang makers, dancers and more! THIS IS NOT AN EVENT TO MISS!
Where: LIVE IN ROSA :: Map
When: Sunday MARCH 10
Price: Book/w flyer 3,000 yen (+1 drink) :: @Door 3,500 yen (+1 drink)
* If you want to book just do a quick search of the band and send them a mail – Psydoll or Vanished Empire (via 2Bullet’s Dee Lee) should be cool. Any problems? Buzz me and I’ll see what I can do!
All righty folks. Igor’s gonna be dressed in a suit and all, especially for Friday night’s Psydoll gig. Well, I have to wear a suit on Friday so I don’t have any choice in the matter, but still… Psydoll, The Royal Dead and Psychodream – Awesome.
If any of you folks out there are rocking up to the night feel free to hassle out the suit. Or better yet, let the bands know that Igor @ Jgoth.com sent you!
So just to whet your appetite, here are a few movies of the bands…
This is an exciting little event featuring two bands who have gone out and got themselves a name at international Gothic events. The bands are, electronicka unit Psydoll and ambient dance muses The Royal Dead (formerly Phantasmagoria). These two bands will be playing with the recently reformed Psychodream, and others in Machine Magic Oktober. The event starts at 7:30 on Friday and goes to around 11 pm in the evening and will be a good way to dispel the week’s demons and defrag the brainstack.
As of the time of screaming, the price has not been set (don’t worry it will be reasonable), but the event will be at Shinjuku Urga (map). For the latest details and bookings, just hop across to the Psydoll site. There you will find maps and other information on the event and can contact Nekoi Psydoll for more information and bookings.
Well, well, it’s finally time to get back into the scene! A big thanks to Nekoi @ Psydoll for the invitation to the Machinery Magic event last month. It was an awesome event with Psydoll, Neurotic Doll, CHC System and Custom Mummy delivering some fantastic music throughout the night.
Stay tuned as Igor gets his black-blooded juices moving flowing again to venture yet another time into Japan’s underground with Japanese Gothic and industrial event information, pictures & viddies, and reports.
This event looks like a good choice for some heavy industrial and other Goth-related genres. Currently only Psydoll (drool) and Saill are listed in the line up. It should be a great event to get mechanized at!

A late announcement for an event that has a good dose of Goth going down. All artists Musu Bore, Psydoll, Shingguapoura and Nicht have connections to the Goth and underground scene so this is looking like a very good night indeed.
