•The episode starts with this. HARU also says that it seems like a message from an "alien" was sent in (TOMO: "Yay!" - RINA: "So one was sent in after all...").

•HARU then wonders if a lot of messages from "aliens" were sent in. RINA reads a message from a listener who says they too have wondered since they were a kid if there are such things as aliens and also thinks the same way about them as the band does. They say that while listening to episode 85, they were reminded of their own alien story. They were sleeping in their pitch-black room with the shutters drawn when all of a sudden they saw a flash of light coming from outside their windows (HARU: "That's the same thing that happened to me!" - TOMO: "Did that happen on the same day, I wonder?"). They say they remember going out onto their balcony, but they don't remember what happened after that (All: "Ehh??"). They were able to wake up normally that day, though, so they thought it was just a dream--however, after hearing HARU's story, it made them go, "Oh, what's this??" and send in this message. HARU goes, "They have no memory of it?? Wow!" TOMO thinks it must have been erased--they might have seen something they're not supposed to see. RINA says that there's a possibility they were taken into a UFO, which makes HARU laugh loudly. They then talk about how this likely happened before HARU's experience, and that possibly the aliens were testing things with the listener to see how much they should reveal. So, when the time frame came for when they went to HARU's place, they decided that only letting humans see that bright light was okay. HARU says that the difference between her and the listener's stories is that HARU did not go out on her balcony. The band says that if she did go out on the balcony, her memory might have been erased. HARU says that she took a video rather than go out on the balcony.

•MAMI reads the next message from a listener who also mentions HARU's story and says that their mom told them she's also seen aliens: she says that she remembers seemingly being taken away by aliens several times (HARU: "She has memories of that?!" - RINA: "This is the uncut version!"). They also say they apparently have a mysterious physique. A long time ago they got stabbed by the thorns of a rose and a bump formed on their finger. They had that bump for over 20 years, but suddenly when they were sleeping one night, they were struck by a mysterious sensation. When they woke up, the bump was gone. Not only that, but after that, the same kind of bump appeared on their abdomen and was there for a while. Their mother said that the bump must have been first taken away for experimental research and then returned later. The listener also says they're cheering for them to go to space. TOMO says that it's not possible for a thorn to leave a bump like that for 20 years. They also discuss whether or not the listener went to the doctor during those 20 years to check out that bump. They think that maybe they went to the doctor but nothing came of it--perhaps they told them they can't really do anything about it and to just leave it alone. A staffer mentions something inaudible in the background that makes TOMO say that the bump could have been the aliens keeping a watch on things. She says that maybe the rose was a trap set by aliens and whomever pricked their finger on it would be observed. MAMI says that they could have put something like GPS in it. TOMO continues that the listener might have tried finding out what it was, which made the thing break down/stop functioning, like it was being updated.

•HARU reads the next message from a listener who says that when they were a kid, a light blue-colored foreigner-looking man wearing a black suit and who had two horns suddenly opened their living room window. The band is really surprised by this and goes, "Eh??" The listener says that they were kindergarten-aged at the time, but they remember that the person was trying to kidnap their little brother who is a year younger, and that their mom and dad were going, "Give him back!" They don't remember what happened after that. After they grew up and mentioned that story to their family, all three family members went, "What are you talking about? Was that a dream you had?" and have no memory of that at all. But the listener says that they do remember that it was something that happened in reality, not in a dream. They ask the band what they think. RINA says she believes in it 120%. TOMO says that it sounds like it was a robbery gone wrong. MAMI brings up the horns the listener says this being had. RINA says that she doesn't know if that was an alien but she believes it was definitely real, and brings up the topic she's talked about before, that she's seen a tengu before after all. HARU laughs and TOMO says that she has mentioned that before. RINA says that she saw it in Osaka in the Konohana Ward. HARU mentions that all of these listeners have said that they have no memories of what happened after the first event. TOMO wonders if there's anyone who actually has memories of what transpired after. RINA talks about the listener again and says that maybe that happening did actually occur and the parents do remember what happened, but they decided to pretend like nothing happened. MAMI says that maybe aliens choose which people to spread the word about them and then take them to their UFO, like they're the chosen ones. They talk about the 'alien's' appearance and mention the suit. TOMO says that they probably came on a business trip to Earth. The others laugh and HARU goes, "They were all proper about it."

•TOMO reads the next message from a listener who says they are a 26-year-old alien. They all go, "An alien has appeared!" The listener says that they're currently working as a cellist in a rock band, and that because they're an alien, they have a special ability. They ask the band if they've heard of synesthesia . They say that some humans seem to have it as well. An example for them is that music chords are each colored differently, such as a C-chord is yellow and a D-chord is ultramarine. They say that when they first started playing music they would copy things based on colors. They ask the band if they have any special abilities or know someone who does. They also say that they will be returning to space next year and ask if there are any good souvenirs from Earth they could give to aliens. And as a PS, they say that penguins are in fact aliens (All: "So that's true!").

•MAMI says that an acquaintance has the same condition but can turn it on and off (TOMO: "So convenient"). It's a sensory overload when they go on the train, however, as there are so many different sounds coming from the commuters, the train, etc. She also mentions that her friend is a designer and that the condition helps in with her work (RINA: "She's making good use of it"). TOMO says that a friend of hers randomly called her one day and said that they can now see peoples' auras. They told her that they can see them remotely as well and told her that her aura was yellow in color then, but it's now more of a green and signifies that she's more tired. HARU says that sometimes she sees colors pop up in her sight for a second (TOMO: "Ah, you've mentioned that before"). She thought it was strange and wondered if something was wrong with her eyes, so she went to the ophthalmologist to have them check them out. They didn't find anything wrong with them, though. TOMO mentions that when they went to see a play, HARU did tell her that she was seeing colors while watching it. HARU says that it's more likely to happen when she's watching something like a play. It also happens when she's about to go to bed. She says no one she knows experiences the same thing and wants to know if there are others like her out there. She also says that she feels that what she's seeing has to do with the energy that things give off. TOMO goes, "Are you perhaps an alien? Maybe your memory of being an alien was erased?" HARU laughs and says she's not sure. MAMI says that apparently some people can see auras after training/practicing. A staffer asks her what colors she sees. She says that she sees all sorts of colors and that she can't control when it happens, so as for the colors that suddenly pop up in her sight, she'll be like, "Oh, that's orange," or "Oh, that's blue." She also says that there are times when she'll go for a while without it happening at all, but she doesn't know in general when it'll happen. It's always been a mystery to her. She also isn't sure exactly when this started happening. TOMO says that she really might be seeing auras, and also wonders if there are any listeners who experience the same thing. The others think that perhaps this thing started when the band started, and that she emits the energy that she receives when she stands on stage.

•Before they close out the episode, RINA reads the last message from a listener who references episode 84 and says that her name "Maya" is also written in hiragana rather than kanji just like MAMI and TOMO's names, which makes her happy. When she was in elementary school and her class had to say what the meanings of their names were, she was told things like, "Does that mean your name has no meaning to it?" But now, she finds that she really likes it--it's easy to write, it's cute, and it doesn't get misread. She says that her mom's name is also written in hiragana. She also says that she's currently unsure whether to give any of her future kids names in hiragana or kanji. The band says that this was a cute message. They kind of talk a little bit more about names written in hiragana/kanji/etc., and TOMO says that her mom sometimes uses her name in hiragana and sometimes in kanji. The others ask what that means, and if she uses them for different purposes. TOMO says she isn't sure, but apparently both versions of her name are considered official. HARU mentions that they too have had 'separate' names for a while: they have their legal names that are written in hiragana or kanji, and they also have their stage names that are written in romaji--they have a lot of ways their names are set.

HARUNA, MAMI, and TOMOMI will be taking part in the charity project celebrating Fender's 75th anniversary and participating in the charity song "We Love Music" written by musician Char.

The music video for it will premiere later today, November 10th at 9 pm JST. You can see MAMI in the thumbnail .





Here's a teaser of the video:







Celebrating its 75th anniversary of its founding, Fender will carry out a charity project called  "Fender 75th Anniversary Charity Project - We Love Music" for elementary schools, junior high schools, and high schools (public) in Japan. This project aims to increase opportunities for innovative and sustainable music education in domestic educational institutions, and to support education with high music literacy. It also aims to bring out the potential in children by providing a place for learning musical instruments and experiences in performing.

The charity song "We Love Music" with the theme of music will go on sale from November 10, 2021 (Wed) in collaboration with a total of 15 guitarists and bassists who supported this project. With Char, one of Japan's iconic guitarists, providing and producing the music as the executive leader of the participating artists, an unprecendeted lineup of artists—regardless of age, genre, or label—active in Japan and overseas has been materialized. The song will be available digitally via major streaming services. All proceeds from it will be donated as a subsidy for music education.





HARUNA's message:

I first came into contact with the guitar when I was in high school, and I remember feeling tremendous joy in the music experience I had, that my horizons broadened tremendously, and in the importance of having bandmates.

I believe that the emotional circle for someone like that can be expanded via music, and that many things can be helped with music—that is why I participated in this project.

I really enjoyed the jam session we had during the music video shoot!




MAMI's message:

I was a student when I first starting playing an instrument, and I remember learning more about the joy of music by learning how to play an instrument.

I hope that you will have more opportunities to come into contact with your musical instruments, and that the enjoyment you'll remember for a lifetime will spread further!

I am honored to be involved in this project. Thank you very much!




TOMOMI's message:

It is a great honor to play with musicians who represent Japan.

I hope that this charity project will color your youths and enrich your musical lives from here on out!

BARKS - RINA's First Signature Snare - Mon Nov 08, 2021 10:30 am

RINA from SCANDAL talks about her first signature snare drum: "I've lived half my life so far as a drummer"

Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 2 001





Fashionable and elegant. RINA from SCANDAL is the leading drummer who has nimbly rewritten the image of strong, rugged drumming. With expressive sounds and drumming that are sometimes delicate and sometimes loud, she has created a new, larger-than-life style and made the drums more majestic. RINA's first signature snare drum, which will be released soon, is also brimming with her own unique preferences. Based on her experience of being in a band for 15 years, she was genuine in her approach in creating this drum and and has completed an unprecedented snare with a high level of artistry. The same is true for this interview. The artwork that accompanies the promotion of the signature snare is based on RINA's own ideas, and it is no exaggeration to say that this creativeness was created with her own hands.

This long interview features the story behind her signature snare, the sound sought for her new fourth generation drum set, being the drummer of SCANDAL, tips to continue loving the drums for a long time, and her source of creativity. It highlights drummer RINA's essence and, at the same time, gives you the feel for her footsteps that have stylishly created her future.






■"Because my first drum set was by Pearl, Pearl is what I consider to be fundamental for me"



──You held "SCANDAL 15th ANNIVERSARY LIVE『INVITATION』 at Osaka-Jo Hall" on August 21st in commemoration of your 15th anniversary. The pandemic made this difficult to be held, but first, please tell us what you felt before the event and how you responded to the successful performance.

RINA: We felt uneasy right until the concert because cases kept rising, but naturally, we had been rehearsing with the intention of holding the performance, and building our mentality as well. At any rate, we really felt like, "This summer we'll concentrate on this concert at OJH and live our lives doing so." It was so relieving to have fans that wanted us to perform even during this difficult time, and wanting to hold a concert with everyone in attendance played a huge part. We took on the challenge of creating a perfect setlist and making sure to convey who we are right now.




──The band has been around for 15 years. It's not easy to build that kind of career. When you're on stage, are there moments when days of the past 15 years come to mind?

RINA: Staffers who have been supporting us since our major debut still tour with us and help create our live performances, so they courteously understand our current style as our personalities and the band have changed. They incorporate the ideas we want to do, such as, "This is who we are now, and this is kind of production want to do," or "We want the lighting to be like this." I'm very happy that each staff member does what they can to the max.



──All of the staff members need to feel like they're actual members of the band.

RINA: That's definitely true. We felt even more grateful and happy as we created the show.



──That performance at Osaka-Jo Hall was the first time your new drum set and signature snare debuted. Had you been wanting to get a new set?

RINA: Looking back, I've been changing my drum set every 4-5 years. This one is my fourth original drum set.



──All four of your sets have been ones by Pearl. Why did you decide to go with Pearl in the first place?

RINA: Drummer Masato Yamashita sometimes comes to the studio with me and gives me advice. He's also a pro drummer who tours with [singer-songwriter] Ayaka and records for all sorts of artists. He said to me, "I think Pearl drums would suit you, RINA" (laughs), and actually put me in touch with Pearl. Since Yamashita is a drummer and musician that I admire, I thought it be nice to have the same manufacturer as him.



──When you played Pearl drums for the first time, what did you like about it?

RINA: Because my first drum set was by Pearl, Pearl is what I consider to be fundamental for me. They are a manufacturer used by drummers worldwide, and when I picture drums, I think of Pearl. I was happy to be drumming on that set.


Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 2 006


──When you've gotten new drum sets in the past, have they been related to changes in your feelings or changes sound-wise?

RINA: Both, I think. We used to make one album per year, and my musicality also changed little by little—I also had many chances to talk with my roadie about things like, "It'd be great if I had this kind of drum sound" - "Then try making your next drum set this size." Like I mentioned earlier, I would change my set out every four or five years. So, despite the changes in our music, it feels like I had changed my set to match the band's fifth and 10th anniversary events.



──And that's exactly what happened with this drum set, which made its debut at your 15th anniversary concert. Preorders for your signature snare drum opened up in mid September, but when did you start wanting to make your own signature snare in the first place?

RINA: I had previously done a shoot for a Pearl snare drum poster [back in late 2010]. At that time, I just started thinking, "I want my signature snare to be visually striking. I'd love to come out with my own original snare one day."



──When it came time to start making your signature snare, what was the first thing you were particular about?

RINA: First, to go with a covering that would be easy to recognize. I wanted to create a design I had never seen before, and I wanted to make it something that I would like and would make you think at first glance, "Ah, that's an original drum by RINA." After deciding on the covering, I chose what kind hardware would be the most fitting and would feel new.

▲Pearl Signature Snare Drum “RINA” Model ~Limited Edition~
A signature snare based on the Pearl Reference Series Brass Snare Drum "RFB1450." Size: 14"x 5". The 3mm-thick brass shell materializes a powerful, sharp sound. RINA's selected specs show their true value in every scene, such as the Fat Tone hoop that unifies extra overtones, and the Ultra Sound snare wire that is delicate and has excellent build up in sound. In addition to its elegant and chic light-purple color, the original design covering with ivy is very highly-designed.




──I'm sure you must have played all types of snares when recording, but what kind of sound did you want for your signature snare?

RINA: My roadie and the team at Pearl know my playing style, so they made suggestions based on the snares I've used before and were like, "What do you think of this?" We all put together the best sound. Because I like the sound of brass shells in particular, we decided at the beginning to go with brass. The shell is neither too thick nor too thin, and I chose it since it's easy to use something that fits all kinds of melodies. It's powerful but is able to produce delicate sounds, which is what I like, so I was also particular about the snappiness of it and customized it as such.



──I'm sure there was some trial and error before it actually took shape, so how did you feel when the prototype was completed?

RINA: The first completed sample made me go, "This is just awesome!" It made me so happy. I made the color a light purple, and I thought that I could create a snare that was truly my own by putting a design of flowery vines that I like, on a color that I like.


Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 2 003


■"After all, I think that a band's image can change simply by the color of the drum set"



──The covering of your new drum set uses "Matte White Marine Pearl," a special color that is not offered for sale in Japan.

RINA: That's right. I wanted the covering itself to have a design. I've used pink, white, and red for my past drum sets, and this time the design has a pattern on it rather than just it being pure white and has a slightly matte texture. It's exactly the very-stylish and wonderful covering that I had wanted. I'm the only one in Japan who is using this color, which makes me feel that I made something that's truly special.



──It looks like a white shell from a distance, but when you look closer you'll see that the shading is quite elaborate.

RINA: It has quite a unique texture, doesn't it? It looks good in any kind of lightning and the nuances of the shell change depending on the color of the light, which I think is fascinating. Also, the bass drum hoop makes use of the color of the wood. It creates a very nice naturalness—it's natural but accentuated. I also really like its design.


Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 2 009


──The shell of your previous drum kit was a Masters Maple Complete one made of thin maple material. This time, it's a Master Maple/Gum one. Do the texture of sound and the feel of when you strike the drums differ quite a bit?

RINA: It's shockingly different. It makes me go, "I really like this depth and how it sounds!" This is a drum set that suits who I am right now. Also, I've recently added pedals and triggers that play programmed music that synchronize with my drumming, and the compatibility with those sounds is also very good. It has an exquisite sound that feels great when you play it. I'm not familiar with the details of equipment, but I told my roadie and the Pearl team things like, "I like sounds that make you feel like this," and they chose the type of drums and customized it.



──Did you focus on sound while also focusing on appearance?

RINA: That's correct. When you make something, appearance is one of the very first things you start with. After all, I think that a band's image can change simply by the color of the drum set. In that sense, I'll be able to use this set, with a base color of white that can be dyed [in lights] in any color, for the next few years.



──Another fashionable highlight of it is that both the snare and the drum set are equipped with metal plates engraved with your name and the band's name.

RINA: I also had those made as original pieces. I put a flower motif design on the plate to match the snare shell design, which gives everything a sense of unity. I was particular about everything I was able to be particular about, down to the finest details (laughs).

▲Pearl Masters Maple/Gum / RINA DRUM KIT
Launched in 2020, new product "MMG" (Masters Maple/Gum) incorporates the new material of gumwood into the Masters lineup. The shell is a 6-ply one with equal thickness, consisting of 4-ply maple and 2-ply gumwood. By matching the natural warmth of maple with the toughness of gumwood, a characteristic of the sound is emphasizing the mid-low range. The pliant sound is favored by drummers who sing in bands, making it outstandingly compatible with SCANDAL's sound.



Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 2 015
▲The set consists of a bass drum (22"x 18"), a tom-tom (12"x 8"), a floor tom (16"x 16"), and a RINA Signature Snare Drum (RN1450S/C). All cymbals are made by Sabian: HHX Groove Hat (14"), AA Medium Thin Crash (18"), AA Splash (10"), AA Medium Heavy Ride (20"), AAX V-Crash (18"), AAX China (18").



──How did it feel actually playing it during rehearsals for your Osaka-Jo Hall performance and the actual performance?

RINA: With the first strike on day 1 of rehearsals, I thought, "This is the best set I've ever had!" It's the best sound-wise as well as appearance-wise. I'm completely satisfied with this set.



──I'm curious to know what the other members think of it.

RINA: During rehearsals, I was so happy and said to myself, "I have a new drum set!" (laughs). When I did, they were like, "This one's white, huh - Nice!" I haven't talked about it sound-wise with them in detail, but if anything, I think from the start it fit in naturally with the band's sound.



──It seems that the feelings of person drumming is reflected as is in the sound, and that is the real thrill of the drums.

RINA: That's exactly so. It's an instrument that reflects exactly what its player is feeling. I think that's one of the drum's characteristics. That's why I sit on my chair feeling happy and excited. I think that being able to play with a brand new attitude has changed my tone to this happy one you can currently hear, and that is being conveyed to both my members and our audiences.

▲Its most notable features include the design & color of the covering. The covering that RINA selected among the various ones both domestic and overseas was the "Matte White Marine Pearl" color sold in the USA. The white pearl pattern with a matte texture and hardware with a nickel finish similar to her previous model gives off a mature feel. Also, like her signature snare, the plate indicating that it's the RINA model is also included on the shells. The drum heads used are Remo Ambassador Coated.



──Does renewing your drum set also have an effect on your feelings?

RINA: It felt like we were off to a new start beginning from our solo concert at Osaka-Jo Hall on our 15th anniversary, so being able to use my new drum set from day that forward made me feel refreshed, excited, and really good.



──It took a while to complete, but was it a fun process?

RINA: It was so much fun. It made me happy that the Pearl team would put together a bunch of samples in response to what I told them I wanted, and it feels like we were able to make something great together.



──Were you also particular about things that aren't visible from the outside, such as the drum settings?

RINA: I currently use a total of four pedals. There's my hi-hat one, double bass pedals, kicks with electronic sounds—I have plenty equipment near my feet (laughs). Our number of songs with band sounds in the foreground, as well as songs that are electronic track-based, have increased, so adding or subtracting to our current musicality is fun when assembling a set. There aren't many drummers right now who set off programmed music, which is why it surprises all kinds of musicians (laughs). Since I have a trigger and a second snare set up for our live performances, I use three different types of sounds using snares alone. It looks like a minimal setup at first glance, but this setup can produce all kinds of sounds with a small number of equipment.


Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 2 017
▲These pedals are Pearl Eliminator Redline P-2052C. Her hi-hat stand is a Pearl Redline H-1050. In addition to these, the Roland KT-10 Kick Trigger Pedal for producing programmed sounds is set on the far right of her pedals at live performances.



──Do you use that many sounds because, as you said, SCANDAL's songs require them now?

RINA: Yes. We want to capture not only the raw sounds but also programmed sounds in a way that feels good. It's possible to layer any kind of tone when recording an album or single, but when we thought about how we'd reproduce all of that live, we added more electronic-based equipment. I'm really glad that I added in triggers to the kick drum and snare. I make use of the trigger when I'm doing rimshots, and just by adding a clear rim sound of the trigger to the raw sound adds a stunning sound. It brings out balance to the performance and adds comfort.

■"It took me 15 years to finally get to know my style"



──It's been 15 years since SCANDAL formed. The band members have gained much musical experience as they've gotten older and your horizons are expanding. I'm very interested how SCANDAL will mature musically from here on.

RINA: Very true. Recently, the main thing that we've been keeping in mind when we're making songs is if we're writing ones that we can continue to perform for a long time. With the world as it is right now, rules for and how you enjoy concerts/festivals are changing. We started to think about things like, "How satisfied can one be with just sound? Can sound or the tempo be lengthened?" As we get older, we think it's better to increase the amount of music that fits who we are, no matter how old we are. The same goes for lyrics as well—I wonder if there's a softness to me that can usually be heard. Like, I wonder if I can go with words that I'm not opposed to. I think that our way of understanding and expressing strength and intensity has changed—we're not just making aggressive music. I'm sure there are many people who think that SCANDAL is a band that's aggressive and powerful, but we now have more songs that are rounded, refined, and delicate. We might be in that mode right now. There are more things that we can do now.

──I think you're able to answer questions like this now: Do you have any tips to keep a band going for a long time, or to keep loving the drums for a long time?

RINA: This might be a bit of a peculiar answer (laughs), but it's not just that I want to keep playing the drums—I very much want to keep making things with the four of us in SCANDAL and to keep being a band. It's really fun to think of it like, "What kind of sound or behavior do I need as a drummer in order to fulfill that end?" It's interesting to think about what I can do as a drummer, wondering what design would be good for who we are right now, or what kind of sound would be good. So, in my case, it's really based on me being a member of SCANDAL. However, once I had my own style, I began to think that I could live my life the way I want to as a drummer. I wasn't aiming to become a specific kind of drummer and just wanted to do things the way I wanted to—that's how I arrived at this super simple idea. I wanted to push ahead as a drummer living my life comfortably, even if I wasn't similar to anyone or categorized into a genre. After that it became easier—or rather, my heart was set free. As with today's shoot, it's fun to be creative with a photographer that you trust, while wearing clothes that get you super hyped up and taking photos at angles not often seen in photos of drum equipment. It's exciting to make things that you like.



──RINA, you are an artist who excels at creativity. Do you always feel motivated?

RINA: It's more like everyone is creating things together, rather than just myself. It's fun to make something new with people from various teams. Like, "I don't have to do such-and-such because it's this kind of shoot, but how can I produce something that's new and fun?" That's how I make music, design drums, and also how I'm doing this shoot today. I think all of us share that mentality. Everything has gotten more fun since I've gotten into the mindset of expressing myself in everything I'm involved in.



──By the way, I think fans of yours are also interested in your bright-blue outfit you're wearing today. Please tell us some key points about it.

RINA: Today, I'm wearing a vintage dress that our stylist picked out for me. This shoot is the first time I'm wearing it, so I'm in a very good mood today (laughs).

──SCANDAL is currently writing songs and is planning to be more proactive about holding live performances next year.

RINA: We talked about it during our [15th-anniversary] concert MC, but right now we're working on an album and are already in the second half of working on it. We also announced recently that we'll be holding a world tour next year. It's been planned for a long time, but it kept getting postponed and we've been unable to go overseas for a while now. I wish we could perform as many concerts as possible both in Japan and overseas. I want to live my life playing music energetically and having fun.



──Then, for fans and drummers who are interested in RINA's signature snare, please give us a recommendation comment such as, "I want this type of person to use it."

RINA: I recommend it to all music-loving drummers. I think that just having a model of musician that you like will greatly increase your motivation. It would also make me happy if you'd enjoy working on music while having fun. So, if you like its design or if you like our music, I hope you'll pick one up.

──I'm sure there will be more opportunities in the future to use this new drum set at live performances. As you celebrate the band's 15th anniversary, what kind of drummer do you want to be?

RINA: I turned 30 this year, and thinking of how I've lived half of my life so far as a drummer, I feel deeply moved. It took me 15 years to finally get to know my style, and my favorite drum sounds and looks. I hope to continue to change and enjoy playing the sounds I like at that moment.



──Lastly, a message to everyone.

RINA: Thank you so much for your support, always. I am very happy I got to make a RINA-model snare and drum set that I designed. I will be touring and bringing you new music with this equipment, so I hope you continue to enjoy our music together with us.

Update on the "SCANDAL 'INVITATION' Bundle"


I just called Bompa and it really does seem like they're working on replacement items, which they said will be shipped out to everyone who ordered the bundle.

The lady I spoke to said that they received the reprinted replacement shirts this week and that they're not entirely sure what's going on with the postcards as of right now because they're not the ones handling that end/are waiting to hear from management, but they are supposed to be actually hand-signed this time. So they're just waiting on info about the postcards and then will start shipping out the replacement items to all bundle purchasers.

I also mentioned how we haven't heard any updates in the past month, which was very frustrating, and she totally understood that and said they're kind of in the same boat. So that was kind of nice to hear lol

Since Bompa did confirm that they already received the reprinted shirts, it does sound like this actually is happening. I really hope it is true this time.

Episode #87 blog


Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 2 B4jO7IJ




HARUNA: We'll be reading lots of messages this week...
But the [temperature outside] has suddenly gotten colder, hasn't it?

TOMOMI: It's really cold.

HARUNA: Meiji's sweets also now winter-themed.

TOMOMI: This is my first time seeing the "White Veil" variation of Meiji's Almond Chocolate.

MAMI: And it's now the season for Meltykiss...

HARUNA: We'll be chatting as we eat.


-Insert messages from joint-band tour attendees about their experiences, saying that they had a lot of fun-


RINA: Both of them wrote great messages...

TOMOMI: I'm so happy...

HARUNA: There were a total of four performances on this joint-band tour: Tokyo, Sendai, Hiroshima, and Fukuoka... We invited other artists to perform, and the vibe was a bit different than our past joint-band tours.

RINA: That's right.

HARUNA: Although these were artists that we haven't really had much involvement with, we really like them and listen to them regularly, so we wanted our fans to know about them as well and experience the music that we're inspired by.

RINA: Yeah.

HARUNA: There were quite a few attendees who were watching our tourmates for the first time.

RINA: SCANDAL doesn't really play joint-band shows that much, and because there are many people who listen to our music enthusiastically, I hope this was an opportunity that expanded your music horizons.

HARUNA: All of our tourmates praised our fans' sense of unity...

RINA: They all did! That made us happy.

HARUNA: Since live performances are made by all people in attendance, we wanted other artists to see our fans' sense of unity achieved because we've continued to play solo concerts, so we were really happy!

MAMI: It was a great tour.

TOMOMI: It seemed like they were some surprising pairings at first, but all of them were such awesome joint-band concerts.



RINA from SCANDAL talks about her first signature snare drum. "I've lived half my life as a drummer." BARKS 2021.10.22

Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 2 00111


Fashionable and elegant. RINA from SCANDAL is the first to slightly change the image of harsh and strong drums. RINA's sometimes delicate, sometimes loud, expressive sound, playing and presence have created a new style and transformed drumming into something more glamorous. Her first signature snare drum, soon to be released, is also full of RINA's unique attention to detail. With a sincere approach to design based on a lot of experience, backed by the band's 15th anniversary, she has completed the creation - an unprecedented small drum with a high artistic quality unlike any other. The same is true of this interview. The artwork accompanying the promotion of the signature snare drum was conceived by RINA herself, and it's no exaggeration to say that she created this creation with her own hands.

The story behind the creation of the Pearl Signature Snare Drum "RINA" Model - Limited Edition, the sound she wanted for the fourth generation of the new drum set as a SCANDAL drummer, tips on how to keep loving drums for a long time and motivation to create. The long interview revealed the essence of drummer RINA, and at the same time she felt involved in creating the future style.

◆ ◆ ◆

■ My first drum was a Pearl.

■ My main drum is also a Pearl.

── The SCANDAL 15th ANNIVERSARY LIVE "INVITATION" concert for their 15th anniversary at Osaka Jo Hall was held on August 21. It happened under difficult circumstances related to coronavirus, but first of all, can you tell us how you felt before the event and what you think about the success of the live show?

RINA: Before the concert, the coronavirus situation was getting worse and worse, so I was worried until the last minute, but of course I was working in rehearsals with the intention of doing the concert, and trying to calm down, hoping for the best. Anyway, I really felt that "this summer we were focused on the concert at Osaka Jo Hall and lived for it." It was a great relief to know that there were people who wanted to see us live even in such a difficult situation, and we really wanted to perform with everyone. We put together a setlist that we thought was perfect, and we went on stage with the feeling that we wanted to convey who we are now.

── You've been in the band for 15 years. I don't think it's easy to build a career like that. When you stand on stage, do you have moments when the days of the last 15 years come back to you?

RINA: The staff that has supported us since our debut are still touring with us and creating live shows, so they have a good understanding of our characters and our current style and how the band has changed over the years. They always have a lot of ideas for everything, like "this is how we want to put on a show" or "this is how we want to put on the lighting." I was very pleased that every member of the staff did the best they could.

── So you think that all the employees involved in the project are members of SCANDAL?

RINA: I really do. It is a great feeling to be able to feel it during a live performance and I am very grateful and happy for that.

── The new drum kit and the signature snare drum were introduced for the first time at Osaka Jo Hall. Have you been thinking about replacing it with a new one for a long time?

RINA: Looking back, I've changed my drum kit every four or five years, and this is my fourth original drum kit.

── All four drum kits are made by Pearl. What was the reason you chose Pearl from the beginning?

RINA: There's a drummer named Masato Yamashita who sometimes comes into the studio and gives me advice. He's a professional drummer who has toured with Ayaka and recorded for various artists. He told me that he thought Pearl would be a good fit for RINA. He actually put me in touch with Pearl (laughs). He's a drummer and musician that I respect, so I thought it would be great to have drums made by the same manufacturer as Yamashita-san.

── When you first played Pearl drums, what did you like about them?

RINA: My first drum was a Pearl, so my main drum is also a Pearl. It's a manufacturer that drummers all over the world use, when I think of drums I always think of Pearl, so I was happy to be able to play on this kit.
Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 2 Ri110
── When you updated your drum kit in the past, was it because of a change in your feelings or a change related to the sound?

RINA: I think it was both, we were making an album every year or so, and our music was changing gradually, and we had many opportunities to talk to our roadie: "I wish we had this drum sound", "Then let's make the next drum this size". Like I said, it changed over the course of four or five years. So even though the music changed, we changed the look of the drums for the band's 5th and 10th anniversary events.

─── This drum kit was just shown at the 15th anniversary concert. Orders for the signature snare drum started in mid-September, but when did you first want to make your own signature drum?

RINA: When I was shooting for Pearl drum posters. At the time I thought, "I want to make my own signature drum with my own visual design. I'd like to make an original snare drum someday."

── When you decided to start making your own drum, what was the first thing you looked at?

RINA: First of all, it's easy to understand by looking at it. I wanted to make a design that I hadn't seen before, and I wanted to make something that I could look at at first glance and say, "Oh, this is a RINA original." After I decided on the design, I thought about what details would best fit and seem new, and then I chose them.

▲Pearl Signature Snare Drum "RINA" Model ~Limited Edition~Pearl Signature Snare Drum based on Pearl's RFB1450 reference metal. Size 14 x 5 inch. The 3mm brass body provides powerful and clear sound. The specifications chosen by RINA show its true value in every scene, such as the hoop for a thick tone that properly collects additional overtones, and the ultrasonic, sharp, delicate and with excellent sound lift. In addition to the elegant and chic light purple color, the original ivy-covered design looks very thoughtful.

── I know you've played different drums in your career, but what sound did you want to get from your signature drum?

RINA: Roadie and the Pearl team know my playing style, so they suggested to me the drums I had used in the past, "How about that?" I think under those circumstances we all made the best sound. I especially like the sound of brass shells, so I knew from the beginning that I wanted to use brass. The shells don't have to be too thick or too thin, and they have to fit different tunes, so that's what I chose this time. I also like a powerful, yet gentle sound, so I am very reverent about my custom pickups.

── It must have been a process of trial and error to shape them, but how did you feel when the prototype came into being?

RINA: From the first sample I finished, I thought, "This is great! He's already the best!" I was so happy. I made the color tone light purple, but I put my favorite flower-like ivy pattern on the color and I feel like I was able to create a drum that really suited me.

■ What is the image of the band?

■ The color of the drum kit changes the impression.

──The new drum kit is covered with a special kind of matte white marine mother-of-pearl which is not sold in Japan, isn't it?

RINA: Yes it is. I wanted the coating itself to be a design statement. In the past I've used pink, white and red drum set, but this time I wanted a patterned design and a slightly matte finish instead of pure white. I was impressed that this was the very trendy and wonderful finish I was looking for. I think I'm the only person in Japan who uses this color, and I think I did something really special.

── From a distance it looks like white, but up close it's a very complex color.

RINA: The texture is very unique. It looks great in any light and the hues of the body change depending on the color of the light, which I think is very attractive, isn't it? Also, the hoop of the bass drum is made to match the color of the wood. I think this gives it a very natural look, but emphasized. It's also my favorite design.
Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 2 00710
── The drum kit body you used before was Masters Maple COMPLETE, which is made of thin maple, but this time it's Masters Maple GUM. Is the feel of the kick and the texture of the sound very different?

RINA: I thought it was surprisingly different. "I like the depth and the way it sounds! I think that's the kind of drumming that suits me at the moment. I've also recently added pedals and triggers that play synchronized sounds, and I think they go together really well. It's a really good sound, and I'm really comfortable playing it. I'm not very knowledgeable about the details of the equipment myself, but I told roadie and the Pearl team that I wanted a sound that would give me that feeling, and they helped me choose the right type and set it up for me.

── So you put a lot of importance on the look but also on the sound?

RINA: Exactly. The look is one of the first things I start to think about when I create something. I think the image of the band can be changed with the color of the drum kit. In that sense, I am going to use white as a base color for the next few years because it can be painted any color.

── The drums and the drum kit, which have the band's name engraved on them, are also very stylish.

RINA: I made an original badge too. I put a floral motif to match the design of the snare drum shell to create a sense of unity. I tried to do everything I could, down to the smallest detail (laughs).

▲Pearl Masters Maple GUM / RINA DRUM KITMMG is new for 2020 and includes Pearl's Masterworks new Gumwood material (full order) in the Masters line. The case is the same thickness of 6 layers, 4 layers of maple and 2 layers of Gumwood. The combination of the warmth of maple and the hardness of the wood gives a sound that emphasizes mid and low frequencies. It blends perfectly with the SCANDAL sound and is a favorite of drummers in bands.

▲ Set consists of bass drum (22 x 18 inches), tom tom (12 x 8 inches), floor tom (16 x 16 inches) and RINA's signature RN1450S / C snare drum. All cymbals are made by Sabian, HHX Groove Hat (14 inches), AA Medium Thin Crash (18 inches), AA Splash (10 inches), AA Medium Heavy Ride (20 inches), AAX V-Crash (18 inches), AAXChina (18 inches).

── How did you feel when you actually beat the drum during rehearsal and performance at Osaka Jo Hall?

RINA: Just one beat on the first day of rehearsal made me think, "I did the best thing I've ever done!" The sound and visuals are the best I've ever had. I'm very happy with the drum set.

─── I'm also interested in other band members' impressions.

RINA: I was so happy at the rehearsal that they said, "We have a new drum kit! " (laughs). I then I said: "I made it white this time, I like it!" I didn't talk about it in detail in terms of sound, but I think it fits in quite naturally with the sound of the band.

── Playing drums is a real pleasure, because it means that the emotional energy of the drummer is expressed in the sound.

RINA: That's exactly what I mean. An instrument that sets the mood of the player. I think that's a characteristic of drums. So sit in a chair in a happy and excited mood. I think the ability to play with a new feeling has been replaced by the current happy tone, and that is conveyed to the participants as well as to the audience.

▲ The most important feature is the design and color of the coatings. From a variety of coatings in Japan and foreign coatings, RINA chose "Matte White Marine Pearl", sold in the USA. The white pearlescent pattern with a matte texture and nickel-coated details, like the previous model, create a grown-up personality. Like the signature drums, the body also features the RINA model badge. The head is made of Remo Ambassador coated material.

── Do you think that updating your drum kit will affect your feelings?

RINA: We started with the 15th anniversary of the band's formation at Osaka Jo Hall. I felt renewed and excited when I was able to use the new drum kit that day.

── Working on the project took a long time, but was the process fun?

RINA: It was a lot of fun. I was happy that the Pearl team collected a lot of samples of what I told them about the nuances, and we were able to make a good sample together.

─── What are some intricate settings you have for drums that we can't see outside?

RINA: I have a total of four pedals. High-hats, double pedals, drums with electronic sounds and a lot of equipment lined up under my feet (laughs). Some of the songs have more of a group sound, while others are more track-based, so it's fun to add and subtract from your current musical style when putting together a setlist. There aren't many drummers in the world who can create a track-based sound, so I get a lot of surprises from musicians (laughs). Since the trigger and the second snare drum are also set in concert, the snare drum itself properly uses three types of sounds. At first glance it looks like a minimal set, but it's a set that can play different sounds with a small amount of equipment. (Hereafter, I apologize for this possible confusion, I am not a drummer. I don't know what it's about, and it's also in Japanese)

▲ Pedal - Pearl Eliminator Red Line P-2052C. The hi-hat stand is Pearl Red Line H-1050. In addition, the ROLAND KT-10 Trigger Pedal for electronic sounds is mounted on the right side of the pedals during live performances.

──The reason why you use so many different tones is because, as you said, SCANDAL music demands it?

RINA: Yes, it does. I hoped that I could capture not only the raw sound, but also the sound of the beat with a good feel. For albums and singles, we can put any sound on the record, but when we thought about how to recreate it live, we started using more electronic equipment. I also installed triggers to the drum and snare drum, and I'm really glad I did that. Trigger is also used when creating a rimshot, and just by adding the clean rim sound of the triggers to the raw sound, it gives the performance an awe-inspiring sound and makes it more exciting to play.

■ Something like your own style

■ It took me 15 years to clearly understand my style

── It's been 15 years since SCANDAL was formed. As the band members got older, I think they gained a lot of musical experience and their horizons widened. I'm very interested to see how SCANDAL will evolve musically next.

RINA: Right. Lately, when we make music, I think most of all about whether it will be music that we can continue to play for a long time. Nowadays, the rules of how to enjoy live shows and festivals have changed. How much can we satisfy people with just the music, and how long can we keep the sound and the tempo up? I've been thinking a lot about these things. As we get older, I think it's better to increase the amount of music that suits us, no matter how old we are. I also think it's important that the lyrics are soft enough that you can listen to them regularly. I wonder if I can find lyrics that I don't struggle with. I don't just write aggressive music, I think what has changed is how we perceive and express power and intensity. I think a lot of people have a perception of SCANDAL as an aggressive and powerful band, but there are more delicate and gentle compositions. I think we are in that mode right now. Now there's something to do, isn't there?
Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 2 01410
── I guess I could ask this question now, but do you have any tips on how to keep the band going for a long time, or also how to keep the love for the drums?

RINA: I think it would be a special answer (laughs), but I don't just want to play drums, but I want to keep creating and doing things together with all four members of SCANDAL. It's really interesting to think about what kind of sound and what kind of behavior you need to do that as a drummer. It's fun to think about what I can bring as a drummer, like what design would work for the current four band members, what sound would work for them. So it's really important to me when it comes to all the members of SCANDAL. But after I've developed my own style, I've come to believe that I can live my life as a drummer the way I want. I don't have a drummer that I'm trying to be, but I've come to the point where it's very easy for me to do what I like. I don't need to be like someone else, I don't need to assign myself to any genre, I just need to do what I'm comfortable doing as a drummer. After that, it made me feel better, my mind was free. As with today's photo shoot, I wore the clothes I felt best in, and it's interesting and fun to work creatively with a photographer I trust, who has taken shots from angles that are not typical of drum kit photos. I really want to do something you'll love! I'm so excited.
Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 2 Ri310
──You are a person with a strong creative spirit, aren't you? Is this motivation always active?

RINA: It's not so much about me personally, but the fact that we all work together. It's nice to create something new together with people from different teams. Not that we have to do it because it's such a shoot, but we think about how we can create something new and interesting. That's how I think when I'm making music and developing drums and filming today. I think that mentality is inherent in everyone. Since I have had a mentality that allows me to express myself in everything I do, everything is more fun.

── By the way, I think RINA fans are also interested in the bright blue clothes you are wearing today. Please tell us about it.

RINA: Today my stylist prepared a vintage dress for me. I wore it for the first time for this shoot, so I'm in a great mood today (laughs).
Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 2 01510
── SCANDAL is currently writing songs, and from next year you plan to be even more energetic in your concert activities.

RINA: I already talked about it in MC at the concert, now we are working on the album and we are already on the second half. We also recently announced that we are planning a world tour next 2022. It's been planned for a long time, but it kept getting postponed, so we couldn't go overseas for a while. I hope to give as many concerts as possible, both in Japan and abroad. I want to live a happy and healthy life doing music.

── Then, for fans and drummers who are interested in RINA's signature snare drum, please give us a recommendation comment such as: "I want people like that to use it."

RINA: I recommend it to all drummers who love music. I think having a model of music or a musician you like can really increase your motivation. I would be very happy if you work on your music with a joyful feeling. So if you like the design, or if you like our music, I hope you'll take one of these.

── In the future, I think there will be more opportunities for live performances where you can play the new drum kit live, but how do you want to be as a drummer after the band's 15th anniversary?

RINA: I turned 30 this year, and I feel a deep excitement at the thought of living half my life as a drummer. It took me 15 years to get a clear idea of my own style, my favorite drum sound, and the look of the drums. I hope that I can continue to change and enjoy playing the way I like at the moment.

── And finally, a wish.

RINA: Thank you for your support. I am very happy to be able to make the RINA snare drum model and drum kit that I designed. With this equipment we are going to tour and bring new music to everyone, so I hope you will continue to enjoy our music.

If you tend to wear all black during the winter,
I think it'll be really useful
To have one in this color^^

~Masters "MMG" Series~


A series that uses the first composite shell in the Masters line to exquisitely blend a flavorful, vintage sound with brightness that is the essence of the sound. A MasterCast hoop that focuses more on the pure midrange is used, and the bass drum is equipped with an original muffler that emphasizes attack and bass.

By combining the outer 4-ply with maple and the inner 2-ply with gumwood (6-ply with equal thickness), it has an explosive midrange and a well-rounded low end, realizing a sound that symbolizes a new era.

Following RINA's own kit, the use of nickel-finish hardware gives it a deep and stately finish.

【Translated Summary】
『SCANDAL Catch up supported by Meiji Apollo』 - Episode 86


Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 2 ZvuSakF
Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 2 Jq5e4nW





•They start the episode by reading messages from listeners who attended their joint-band tour. They're kind of not that interesting lol so I will not be translating them. This then follows.

•HARU then says they have an important announcement to make: The four of them will be undertaking a new 'mission' on the program, which will be titled "one more time Study" where the four of them will draw lots to pick a subject they know nothing about and then will have to study up on and read their findings on future episodes. HARU reads that this was originally supposed to be a project held during the summer, and it's now a late-summer independent research project (TOMO: "It's basically winter now - We're wearing long sleeves"). They say that they were pretty busy during the summer. HARU says that the staff has picked out four topics written out on cards in envelopes in front of them, with each member picking one. TOMO asks if they're all different topics; HARU says they are, and wonders if the staff picked topics that the members basically have no interest in. RINA wonders what they should do if the topic's too hard. A staffer confirms that they're not too hard.

•The band then decides which envelopes to pick by way of jan-ken-pon (rock, paper, scissors). MAMI wins and she chooses her envelope first, followed by RINA, TOMO, and HARU in that order. They open their envelopes all at once and immediately go, "Ehh??!" MAMI's topic is punch perms , RINA's is ladybugs, TOMO's is kokeshi dolls , and HARU's is manhole covers . They confirm with the staff that they're free to research the subject however they'd like. MAMI goes, "Is it okay if I go and get a punch perm myself?" They all laugh and HARU goes, "You'll actually experience it!" MAMI says that it would be the best way to learn about it, which the others agree with (TOMO: "Like, what it's like while you have it" - HARU: "Or whether or not it hurts"). RINA goes, "What'll happen if MAMI shows up like that next time?" TOMO says that it'll probably suit her. MAMI says that she might want to do something like have a shaved head one day.

•TOMO brings up her topic and says that there's a famous person who loves kokeshi dolls. MAMI says that that person's the other half of a female comedic duo Tanpopo; TOMO knows her name: Emiko Kawamura . She also jokes and says she wants to be friends with her by next week, and that she'll send her a DM saying that she needs to research kokeshi ASAP. A staffer says something unintelligble in the background, but based on HARU's reply, it seems that they were asking if listeners who are knowledgeable on the topics should send in messages. HARU says that they could, and that if they do the band will read it along with their own research. The staffer wonders if people will send messages in; the band thinks there will be. RINA says that there definitely are people well-versed in these topics. HARU says that there definitely must be ones who know a lot about punch perms. TOMO also says the same for those knowledgeable about insects, and that there are many people interested in manhole covers. HARU says that she's looking forward to it all.

•The staffers say something in the background to the effect of them being done with the required topics of the day, and if they'd like to simply chat--it had been a month since all four band members were together on the program, after all. HARU says this is the first chat segment. RINA says in a very monotone voice, "Anyone do anything recently?" They all laugh and HARU goes, "That's so rough!" MAMI says that she's been into making beaded accessories recently, and that she can make a beaded ring in mere seconds. The others say that MAMI has all made them things. MAMI says that doing this really has a relaxing effect on her and that she's gotten really good at switching gears.

•RINA says that she can now only fall asleep if she listens to something, which she isn't sure is a good thing or not. She says she doesn't like it if she doesn't listen to songs to fall asleep to on YouTube or the like. HARU wonders if RINA can't fall asleep because she's thinking about something completely different. RINA says it's probably the opposite--she feels very calm when music's playing. She also mentions that videos that say something like "Fall asleep in under five minutes" are actually like 12 hours long. She wonders if there are any ones that are literally five minutes long. HARU says that people do fall asleep at different rates. MAMI apparently tries looking up some videos and finds one that says "Ambiance that'll make you sleep soundly" and notes that the genre is electronic, which makes the others laugh. RINA says that there are playlists like this on Spotify, but when you play them as you go to sleep, around three hours later EDM will start playing because the original playlist runs out and will switch to another playlist. TOMO says that trance music makes you sleepy. She also says that she can just get in bed and go to sleep, which HARU says is the same for her. MAMI says that if she just can't get enough sleep, she listens to hard music and goes to sleep. RINA says that on tour overseas when they used to have two members per hotel room, MAMI would be watching SpongeBob the entire time on the TV. Since RINA was the type to sleep in the dark and in silence, she would be like, "I can't sleep like this!" They all laugh, and MAMI says that she did in fact watch SpongeBob a lot. The others verify this. RINA asks if she does that only at hotels and not at home. MAMI says she thinks it's still the same at hotels, though she does keep it silent but has to have something on that has a light. She thinks it's due to darkness having a factor of fear to it. At home she also keeps it silent when she sleeps for 6-8 hours, but when she sleeps for shorter than that, she plays music. RINA guesses that it's more comfortable to do that when sleeping lightly, which MAMI agrees with and says that she knows she'll definitely wake up in that case.

•TOMO says that when she's overseas, she can sleep better at a hotel than she can at home. Specifically, she says the hotel beds in Thailand are nice (RINA: "Those are the best!") and that she wanted to bring back pillows with her. The others agree and say that the hotels there are great. They all praise the pillows, saying they're large, soft, support your neck. TOMO wonders if they sell those in Japan. MAMI talks about when they were in Germany for a tour and had fries and sausages the night before they had to go back home. She says that they only got to sleep for 2-3 hours before they had to go to airport, but she found that the beds at the hotel were amazing. HARU says that she doesn't remember that at all. RINA asks if they were beds made of wood. TOMO asks if the beds were hard. MAMI says that the comforter was godlike. They laugh and RINA says she guesses there are godlike hotels overseas. MAMI says that it was nice because it was winter and really cold. TOMO says one time when it was really cold overseas, hot water wouldn't come out of the tap in her room. The others laugh and say that they remember her mentioning that. RINA mentions how while in Europe she wanted to take a bath but the door was ripped off. They laugh and TOMO says that in contrast hotels in Japan are very clean/neat. TOMO also brings up a story from when HARU and RINA were rooming together, and at the same time they said that there was something weird was up with their room and couldn't stay there, so they asked to change rooms. They laugh and say that that happened in the US. RINA says that the atmosphere was weird, and when they opened the window curtain, there were gravestones right outside of the room (HARU: "That was scary"). RINA says that they surprisingly have a ton of stories about hotels. TOMO then tells a story of when they were in France and a rabbit hopped into her room when she opened the window. MAMI says that she saw rabbits outside as they were eating and thought they were cute, but they were actually ones that were to be used as food. RINA says that that happened when they were still technically children [likely happened in early 2008 when RINA would have been 16] and only really knew Japanese food + didn't know about food in other parts of the world, so it really shocked them at the time.

More repercussions for popular segment "Kyoukai-sen Kyoukai"!?

Episode #86 blog


Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 2 LLTupZ7




HARUNA: We'll be reading lots of messages this week,

But as for the English title of "Kyoukai-sen Kyoukai" that's been problematic...


[So the staff basically writes that they got a message about their slightly-Engrishy, original title of the segment, then lists my message once again haha, and say that another suggestion was given to them so as to keep the "ABC" abbreviation]


HARUNA: We decided the other day that we would be sticking with the "ABC" abbreviation...

TOMOMI: It went from "ABC" to "FLA," and then back to "ABC."

HARUNA: We thought things had calmed down, but then we got another message about it.

MAMI: Ohー? Then let's read it.


Spike

Hello, SCANDAL! I'm an overseas fan from Canada. My Japanese is not very good - sorry about that. I hope you can understand my message.

My question. Does SCANDAL need to apologize for the English translation of "Kyoukai-sen Kyoukai"?
A subtle line between being cool and being accurate.
A listener wrote that "Association of Borderline on Catch Up" was cool but unnatural. They said "Fine Line Association" is more accurate but may not sound that cool.

For fun, I put "境界線境界" in Google Translate,
And the translation came out as "Boundary Boundary"!

- Boundary in English means "dividing line." Speaking of boundary, I think that overseas fans are familiar with it.
- "Boundary-Boundary" is an English repetition of "境界線境界"
- It's easy to remember
- Please sing it like "Laundry Laundry."



RINA: "Boundary Boundary" sounds nice. It has a Japanese-like nuance to it.

HARUNA: "BB" is nice.

RINA: Does that mean it also sounds cool?

HARUNA: I think so.

MAMI: Spike is saying that this sounds good.

TOMOMI: I think it is.

RINA: Yeah. Shall we call it "BB" temporarily?








lolol I slightly regret sending in that message now, now that it's this controversial hahaha. I wish I had thought of a better "ABC" abbreviation to begin with rather than focusing on accuracy.

This is my snare drum that I poured all of myself into
That carefully took a long time to make
Alongside the Pearl team
And my roadie that's been with us for a long time




We also made a short video
That non-drummers
Can enjoy as well,
So please check it out on YouTube〜!





Also, I did an interview with BARKS
That's very in-depth
And was done very courteously.
It features me talking about the drums, songwriting, and my current self,
And also has a ton of photos〜!



https://www.barks.jp/news/?id=1000209248


This is a snare that has specs that can be used for actual live performances,
A sound and appearance I'm satisfied with,
And is one that's best for me right now
Without compromising on various qualities^^
The more you strike it, the more it'll fit you,
And the more the sound will get better and stabilized.

Good equipment comes at a high price,
So thank you so much to those who have ordered it.
Wait a little longer until it's delivered to you〜!
It'll be sent along with
An exclusive photo postcard^^

The preorder period runs until 11/1 (Mon)☺
Those unsure whether or not to get it, act quickly〜!

Tell them the reason you'd like a refund/chargeback is because the items you received were not what the company explicitly said you would be getting. To cite as evidence, you can give them the link to this page: https://bit.ly/scandal_livefrom_bundle_details

Also, it seems that the band was likely paid their share already, so don't worry about that.


If you do ask for a chargeback and receive a reply about it from your CC company or PayPal, please post about it in this thread.

Yomiuri Shimbun's "MAKE A WISH DAISY PROJECT" interview with RINA


Staying at home, but what if being at home isn't safe for everyone? Support for women survivors of domestic violence


Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 2 20211021-OYT8-I50019-1




Simple pajamas with white piping accents on chocolate-colored satin. There is a modest message on the back of the neck: "Proceeds will be donated to organizations that support women in need and those living in family environments."



Requesting assistance via crowdfunding in return for pajamas

Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 2 20211021-OYT8-I50017-1


Last year, RINA and her friend+model Seina started "MAKE A WISH DAISY PROJECT." The first thing they worked on was the production of these pajamas. "There are of course cases when you need to communicate this subject in a serious manner. But for us, we wanted this to be a non-serious entryway into it, to incorporate it into your daily life and be fashionable. Also, to make it something that reminds you of the support you're giving."

In return for pajamas and requesting support via crowdfunding, over 7 million yen (~$62,000 USD) was collected in a month and a half starting from last December. After deducting the cost of materials, they donated about 1.29 million yen (~$11,300 USD) in August of this year to two organizations that support women survivors of domestic violence, single mothers, fathers, etc. Since then, they have been selling original T-shirts and other items on their online store.

RINA met Seina via a vintage fashion store she used to frequent. They hit it off, sharing an interest in clothing as well as many other similarities. They met up once a week, chatting at cafes and going shopping, and learned that they were both troubled by their family situation. "I wish I could do something for those who are in the same situation as me." During the time they were frequently discussing those thoughts, the pandemic hit.

"We were ordered to stay home, but I thought of how being at home wasn't safe for everyone. There's a different danger aside from the virus. This made me realize that if we continued to live our lives normally, I would have never thought of that," said RINA, looking back on last spring. Seina also thought the same. The two of them agreed that if they were to do something, now would be the time.



Struggling alone as a child, thinking, "Why is my family the only one all jumbled up?"

Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 2 20211021-OYT8-I50018-1


RINA was raised as the eldest daughter of five siblings in a single-mother family. Her mother remarried, but her relationship with the other man hurt her mentally. It was tough seeing her mother like that. "How can I protect her? I want to make my mother happy," is what she always thought. At the age of 15 she started her dream of working in music. However, when she was working, phone calls from her mother would shake her up—it was all she could do to keep her composure. Naturally, her mother was unable to attend live performances.

In her second year of high school, her dream of making a major debut came true and she moved to Tokyo. As her siblings bawled, she felt guilty that "I was the only one who got away." Strengthening her resolve, she told herself, "I'll make sure to succeed and give back to my family," and has continued to support her family financially. Smiling gently, she said, "Of course this is a job that I want, and I like being in a band—it's so much fun. But I think I've been able to make it this far without stopping because I had my family [to worry about]."

"I kept wondering why my family was the only one that's all jumbled up." - She recalled her childhood as she struggled alone without being able to talk to anyone about it. "I wonder how much it could have helped me if back then my favorite musician told me that there are families like mine."

She was also conflicted to share things that weren't related to music. However, now that fans can feel closer to artists via social media, she felt that she might be able to get closer to the fans. Additionally, another reason was that her relationship with the band's fans changed close to her late 20s.

SCANDAL launched its own imprint label within its record company [Victor Entertainment] three years ago. They began promoting more independent activities. "We can now tell our fans what we're worried about. We're able to make music as human beings, while also showing negative aspects. I feel that our fans are also speaking to us as fellow human beings." Feeling this warm support, she thought she'd be able to launch this project now. She puts all of her strength into it: "I've received fan letters that say things like, 'I'm actually in the same boat.' I've also come into contact with people who are learning about this kind of topic for the first time. It really feels like things are being conveyed."



"Because I have my three other band members...being a solo act would have been absolutely impossible for me"

Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 2 20211021-OYT8-I50020-1


SCANDAL played at a live music club in Odaiba, Tokyo on the third of this month. They performed cool and cute songs one after another, such as danceable songs and songs with strong rock themes to them. RINA could be seen surrounded by the members, hitting the drums powerfully. It's been 15 years since the band formed. Her three bandmates understood her situation and gently supported her. They also support this current project from the bottom of their hearts. A cozy place can be found right here. "Being with these three always makes me excited and happy. We're good matches for each other as human beings. I've made it these past 15 years because I've got these three. Being a solo act would have been absolutely impossible for me."

Her family situation had always been a complex for her, but recently she's been able to gradually start accepting it. There are thoughts and problems she is able to notice due to having experience in that area. The amount of support still isn't that big yet, but she feels that the responses are moving forward. "I'm sure there are people who are suffering and wondering if their current situation will keep continuing. I want to continue doing this for a long time so that these people know they're not alone."



"Live the way you want to, without denying anyone"

Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 2 20211021-OYT8-I50016-1


We asked RINA about her personal tastes.


――The appeal of drums

The way your feelings will come out in the sound. If you're in a bad mood, you won't be producing any fun sounds. I started doing it and found out that it suits me.



――Words she cherishes

"Live the way you want to, without denying anyone." I've always cherished this in my musical activities. It's the feeling that the four of us feel comfortable doing what we like.



――How she refreshes herself

Watching thrilling, slightly scary movies or anime. I like the fear of something feeling bizarre and mysterious.



――Favorite fashion items

Incorporating vintage items. Most of them are from Europe. A lot of my interior items are antiques purchased at flea markets.

We played a joint concert with Vaundy
At Zepp Fukuoka yesterday!
It was such a fun night
Where crazy chemical reactions that were much more crazy than we had imagined◎

He gave us a great performance, songs, and concert,
Which made us so happy.
Having a setlist full of hit songs made it so much fun^^

Last week in Tokyo we went to see Vaundy live
For the first time,
And he showed us a performance
That has both the charm unique to solo artists and the amount of heat equal to a band's,
So in the car on the way back we quickly changed our setlist...haha
We challenged ourselves for the finale of our joint-band tour!
Ah, it also made us happy that he said he really likes "one more time"
And praised us for it...
We're the type of people who excel by being praised^^

Looking back, we've never had anything like
Likes/dislikes or borders when it comes to music;
We thought everything was cool...
That in itself is impressive...
We've been making music while being influenced by various things.
We're happy that we were able to perform with our favorite artists in this way,
And that everyone was able
To experience what we like.
Also, all of the artists praised our fans!

I think this time too we put on a joint-band tour
That only we are able to do^^
Thank you to everyone for making time for these concerts
Amidst your busy schedules.
Let's see each other again!

We returned to Hiroshima for the first time in forever〜!
Thank you so much
To everyone who came out on this Friday night〜!

Yesterday we played our first joint band show
With Chiaki Sato-chan.
We're good friends with her,
And thanks to that
We had asked her to arrange our song
"NEON TOWN ESCAPE"
On our previous album,
And thanks to that connection we got to arrange "Ivory"
With Kouhei Munemoto-san,
Who plays keyboards in Chiaki-chan's backup band...

We're happy we got to spend a great night in Hiroshima
With an artist with whom we have many connections to!
A beautiful singing voice and a delicate live performance...
Her MCs were full of love and made us super happy.

This was also a special day
On which we got to talk plenty to each other about
Music, instruments, and performances. So stimulating.

Also, yesterday,
2021.10.22,
Was the 13th anniversary of our major debut^^
We're so busy every year in August and October around our anniversaries haha
For SCANDAL currently,
It is the 15th anniversary of our formation & the 13th anniversary of our debut.

Our anniversaries are such that we can just be at a live music club
And, in a good way, things will be going smoothly.
We're pretty casual about it, like, "Oh yeah, it's today!"
It's kind of nice to have peaceful proof.

Thank you for always keeping an eye on us〜!
