I just found this forum when I did a search for Fuzzy lyrics and it popped up, Hi everybody! I'm a long time fan, I first saw SCANDAL in March of 2008 during the Japan Nite Tour at a small club named the Empty Bottle in Chicago Illinois along with Petty Booka, The Emeralds, Ketchup Mania, Detroit 7, and The Beaches... what a night.  Even though they were just in their teens it was clear that Scandal was going to be great. I was fortunate enough to get their first single, Space Ranger autographed by all the girls and I still treasure it. In a side note the Space Ranger single was released by Kitty House, and the Empty Bottle had an actual kitty mascot it was so friendly and even though it was a very loud rock club the kitty was so chill all the time just hanging out in the lounge chairs and getting scritches from one patron after another lol. Seven years later I saw SCANDAL again at Chicago's Anime Central in May of 2015 it was another awesome show, but completely different from that early intimate little club, now they were a powerhouse big time rock band and they had all grown into beautiful young ladies... who kick a__.

Hi S Shin.

Welcome to SH.

You are lucky to know SCANDAL that well.
I have known then since 2006 but did not meet them in person until their first visit to London.

Hope you have fun here.

That's awesome. Welcome!

Did you follow Scandal's gradual ascendancy closely in the years after the Empty Bottle gig or did they re-enter your life as big shots?

Welcome aboard!!!

Oh man!! So envious that you got to see them then. I’ve been looking for a sealed cd of space ranger or kagerou on sale but to no avail. They really have come along way and I'm so proud how they've grown. Anyway yeah! Welcome!

I have followed them all along but these have been my only two opportunities to see them locally. Watching videos, even something as great as Live at the Zepp it just didn't seem to register with me until seeing them again live at the show, I tended to think of them as those teens I saw in 08.

Welcome, S Shin.

Lucky you to see Scandal so early on.  I would have liked to have enjoyed that live experience, but I definitely can't complain about any of the shows I saw in 2015 or last fall in the States.
