Gacharic Spin is an all-female japanese band formed by F Chopper Koga, who's the bassist of the former punk band Pink Panda (which is now called Blistar) she left Pink Panda because she said the band is starting to have a more pop feel.

Anyway Gacharic Spin consists of:
F Chopper Koga - Bass
Armmy - Vocals
Tomo-Zo - Guitar
Hana - Drums

They'll be playing on Anime Matsuri this March 19, here check out they're music, the first 2 are from their instructional dvds, hope you enjoy it!

I like them !
I remember F Chopper Koga from 'Pink Panda', yet another good female bass player, it is funny how many Japanese girls play bass guitar, not many girls want to in England.

I like this band especially Hana and Koga!

Koga so cute, lol i adore her bass skills muchhhhhhhhh! And i really like her the way she moves on stage yet she is a girl. She always loves to talk, talk, talk, talk.

Hana, i found her old band i just forgot the name where she is the bassist and vocal too with her other boy members its a really pop genre band wayback. And she looks pretty young there. And now she is Dr. Hana haha, lol she knows a lot of instrument, I salute her..


Im excited with their upcoming movie DEAD BANGING :)lol..... its cool..with the zombie thing

I've started to listen to them just 2 weeks ago even if I knew them for several months. They're great musicians. Koga is an awesome bass player !!! the way she moves and plays.

I love Gacharic Spin! I found them a couple of months ago and I can never look back. They're crazy talented and energetic as well. Hana was also the one who caught my attention first Happy I guess I have a thing for people with blue hair XD Wish more of their lives are accessible through broadcast though~

I love them. Extraordinary musicians and fun personalities. I'm also an even bigger fan of the DOLL$BOXX project.

They're really awesome and talented, a bit underrated though. The way Hana sings and plays drums leaves me in awe~ o.o

This is no longer accurate:
F Chopper Koga - Bass
Armmy - Vocals
Tomo-Zo - Guitar
Hana - Drums

Armmy left, and the band now consists of:

F Chopper KOGA - bass
TOMO-ZO - guitar
Hana - drums/vocals
Oreo Reona - keyboards/vocals
Mai - dancer
Arisa - dancer

Reona, like TOMO-ZO, was formerly in Eu*Phoria.

They sure have come a ways... I just got the Delicious Live DVD which they released in October, and it's pretty awesome. Heartily recommended to any fan.

Until now, they didn't performed with Scandal. Scandal did several with Miwa, Keiko Terada, ... but not Gacharic Spin. But it could be nice.

Just learned GACHARIC SPIN had toured China and did a gig in Hong Kong! I missed another good show!

They are pretty awesome! Seems this kind of a band form factor from Japan only.
And that's why I found Japanese music is more interesting.
Btw, I think Scandal had considered to tour China somehow as well but never happened.

I discovered them very recently. My favorite songs from them are [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. Their setup is pretty unusual with the drummer and keyboardist being the main vocalists and two members being dancers, are there any other groups like this who are "different" than the norm?

I wish Gacharic management would get more live quality clips up on Vimeo , You Tube  or Dailymotion. All the great stuff with Arrmy is gone too, which is a real shame.

 They seem to take stuff off, thereby reducing their reach to new fans OS , which is why they are so far behind Scandal and Babymetal. Negoto also has removed their best live stuff as well. Wake up guys , Scandal and Babymetal have streaked ahead of you , despite Negoto and GC having amazingly good technique players...... but I love  all those bands , its just that some are more easy to follow with more stuff up there. 

I am a live type guy , if they can't cut it on stage forget it.

A really great side-project for the band is Dolls Box. They teamed up with the lead singer from the band Lightbringer. It was an awesome collaboration.

And, as a sadder side-note, the original lead singer (Armmy) for Gacha-pin passed away in November. I haven't found anything that says what happened, whether it was illness or accident.

Gacharic Spin is definitely an interesting and energetic band to see live. I've known about them for a while but I've only casually listened to them. When the J-pop Summit Festival announced that Gacharic Spin wound be performing at the 2015 festival, I thought it would be cool to go and see them~

They definitely didn't disappoint with their performance.  Clap


The girls were energetic right from the introduction they did and their energy never faltered once. Many artists at the festival failed at getting the crowd really going but Gacharic Spin had no trouble at all getting the crowd to follow along with them. They definitely have a strong stage personality.

I think that Reona and Koga have the strongest personalities on stage. They seemed to really control the attention on the stage. I thought Hana would be the most commanding since everyone always talks about her but I actually thought that she was one of the least powerful members on stage. ^.^" Reona is amazing on stage. I vividly remember the moments during their show where Reona actually climbed onto her keyboard. c:

If Gacharic Spin is performing somewhere near you, I'd say to definitely go. They're an interesting band and their shows are very energetic. It's a really fun time to watch these girls perform live.

Unfortunately, I didn't get to meet the girls. Sad Kinokuniya is, to put it nicely, horrible. I had bought Gacharic Spin's album the first day when they weren't giving out tickets to their meet and greet, so I settled with a ticket for Little Glee Monster instead. The second day, I didn't buy anything for the girls because I already had the merchandise and tried to get a ticket to meet them. Kino wouldn't give me and many others a ticket because we had bought the merchandise yesterday and not today. *sigh* Kino really screwed a lot of us out of meeting Gacharic Spin. :c

***

Switching points... I actually hadn't known that TOMO-Z and Reona were in Eu-Phoria. I'm actually fond of the few songs that Eu-Phoria released before disbanding. Also knowing that Koga was previously in Pink Panda was something I didn't know.

Given that three of their members were part of bands I'm already fond of, it doesn't surprise me that I do like Gacharic Spin's music. Happy

DOLL$BOXX was an amazing collab! I wish they released new music... I've been waiting since 2012 lol Fuki and Hana's voices are really good together, so it's a shame nothing more came of it.

Armmy passed away!?!?!?!  Shy

Ugh that sucks, I didn't even know she came back into the music scene until I just looked her up. That's really sad... the TAKAEITA One-man live became the TAKAE mourning live. RIP Ashitomi Takae
