Hello everyone!

My name is Rob and I'm from Brazil. 

I grew up being a Beatles fan, then I became an Oasis fan, loving all those british rock generations from the 60's to the 2000's. When Oasis split up I was kinda done with rock so I started navigating through other genres like Soul, Jazz, brazilian MPB... 

Anime is a huge success in Brazil (Saint Seya, Dragon Ball, Card Captor Sakura, Yu Yu Hakusho, Captain Tsubasa, to name a few) so its themes are very popular. I probably discovered SCANDAL through Bleach but never paid much attention. One day Shunkan Sentimental appeared on YouTube, I was like "This is good! But do they really play the instruments? Yes they do!", then I started to learn more and more about them. Suddenly SCANDAL became my favorite band, drawing my attention to japanese music. I was surprised that a band from literally the other side of the world made me love rock'n'roll again.

Along the way I found out another band from Osaka, the Ulfuls, they came before our girls and I love their music and style. I also like LiSA, Akai Ko-en, Radwimps, Aimyon, Yorushika, Mondo Grosso... The other day I discovered Atarashii Gakkou, they are "peculiarly" good.

You've probably seen some replies from me. The thing is I didn't feel secure enough with my english before, but now I've decided to put that insecurity behind to be more active on the forum, as I returned to my language classes. Also, I wanna say Thank you Scandal-Heaven for providing content for us fans all over the world. I wouldn't be the fan I am today without your work.

What else? I have an acoustic guitar and my own songs, but never recorded them properly. I love cinema, anime, Ghibli, Makoto Shinkai movies, games, Assassin's Creed (Ezio trilogy is the best), as a brazilian I play soccer [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.], I also love basketball.

This turned into a long post. Thank you for having me Scandal-Heaven and fellow members.
HARU peace

Hello Rob, it's nice to meet next Scandal fan from the South America!
I'm not exaggerating if I claim, that you will find here only the nicest people on the internet.

If you were an Oasis fan, could you tell me who was, in your opinion, more important in the band- Noel or Liam ;-) ?
And I'm with you with British rock from that period- you can't find a better one!

It surprises me that there are still people who have decided to post their thoughts many months later after their registration. I'm glad you have made the right decision though!
Needless to say (write?) that your English is far better than you think!

I remember that I asked myself the same question about their musical abilities.
But it was "Shoujo S" video for me HARU laugh

P. S. Good choice with your avatar :-) KftD concert is the first image of Haruna I saw (and all the band)!

Hi Rob welcome to SH!

I was a big OASIS fan and have got all their singles and albums on CD.

As for Japanese acts I like SCANDAL obviously LiSA and RADWIMPS also many others I just discovered Lilygakkidan today and they are awesome.  Atarashii Gakkou are how can I put this an acquired taste and seem a bit bonkers in a good way, I like them though.


Makoto Shinkai movies are amongst some of my favourite anime movies Your Name is probably my favourite, just it's hard to choose ask me in a couple of days and my mind may have changed again LOL!



Anyways great intro have fun and enjoy your stay in this SCANDAL-centric corner of the interweb. HARU dance

@tonymiller Thanks for the message. Now I'm curious, which bassist inspired you to play bass back then?

Btw you're not old, you've been blessed to have witnessed some of the best decades of modern music [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

@Andy666 I like Black Flag too, I wish I could go to Brazil in the game with those ships [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The level of detail in Garden of Words is astonishing.


MuftaK wrote:If you were an Oasis fan, could you tell me who was, in your opinion, more important in the band- Noel or Liam ;-) ?

@MuftaK I appreciate your kind message. Now that's a tough question lol

Noel is the mind behind the songs and production, following the logic he would be the most important member. But his music would be nothing without Liam's unique voice and passion. While Noel is the mind, Liam is the heart.

So it's a 50/50 in my opinion. 

There's a movie released just a few weeks ago called "Oasis Knebworth 1996". The producers did a good job with the editing, using behind-the-scenes content to show the dynamic between the brothers. The stories told by the fans are gold. The documentary "Supersonic" is also a good option to know them better and how they complemented each other.

@GT I admire how Shinkai pays attention to details in this digital era of anime. All I can say about Your Name is that the tears made me dehydrate a little lol

It's hard to categorize Atarashii Gakkou. They're from Victor too, I wonder how crazy a collaboration with SCANDAL would be [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

What inspired me to play Bass ?

Well like Tomomi I thought it would be easier as it only has four strings Happy

But seriously I was inspired by Jack Bruce, Rolling Stone Magazine rated him number 8 out of the top ten best bass players in the world.

He started with the Graham Bond Organisation in the 60's and then moved onto John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers before forming the Super Group CREAM with Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker.

And yes there was some great music about in the 60's and 70's, I never got to be famous but I had a lot of fun in local groups.
Oh and I have a Fender Jazz Bass and a Hofner violin bass and Tomomi has played both of them although sadly not my ones Happy

I see. I'm more familiar with CREAM, White Room is one of the best rock songs ever imo.

It's really cool to know that you played for some bands. I presume you have a lot of good stories from those times.

I'm no bassist but I believe the Hofner violin must be a dream for any bass player [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Well the Fender Bass guitars are very heavy and you know how Tomomi likes to bounce around so I thought the violin Bass would be ideal for her Happy

And yes I have many good memories of the 60's and 70's although I still love music just as much now.

My favourite Japanese Rock Band was probably X Japan and I was gutted when they broke up in 1997 Sad

I absolutely agree with you- and that sentence above sums up perfectly what, in my opinion, many fans think about this duo. In terms of music I respect both of them equally.
I still remember when "Don't Look Back in Anger" was played on MTV ten times a day- good times!
Also, thank you for this info about these documentaries- I would definitely like to know something more about their relations. It's a shame that the band ended in such circumstances :-/

But when I think of the British music scene in the 90's, I think the most about one band- Slowdive. Do you know them?

After all, this is a Scandal forum, so could I ask you what is your favourite album (or at least period in their creations)?

No doubt about it Shinkai is a master at what he does and Your Name made me shed tears also.

I can highly recommend 'I want to eat your pancreas' it's not a Shinkai feature but if Your Name made you cry this film will have you blub like a baby, you know what's coming from the outset but when it happens it hits like a freight train. The Violet Evergarden movie is on Netflix from today by the end of the series I was an emotional wreck, I really want to watch the movie but I'm sure I want to have my heart ripped out just yet.

Scandal and Atarashi Gakkou collaboration, interesting. What about a Dobondobondo collaboration, Tomomi and Mami would be in their element  M+T cheers

I'm curious about the title, I'll search for it. Thanks for the recommendation.

Violet Evergarden is on my list but I haven't even started [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Liam is keeping the dream alive but Noel is too stubborn to give in. At this point fans just want them to be brothers again. They could learn a thing or two from SCANDAL.

I don't know much about Slowdive to be honest, I'm more familiar with Ride. It's a genre that has had many followers. I'll take a look at them [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] 

Well, BEST SCANDAL is my favorite album I think, a great band starts with a powerful debut. Sadly they'll never perform 'Sakura GOODBYE' again.
TOMO sad

Hello World is up there to me. Maybe I'm leaning towards Kiss from The Darkness since I love the work and versatility they put into it. Their discography is so strong that the top 3 always changes [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Maybe one day they will conclude that there's still many things that they have in common and that together they can achieve more (and better).
For me, as long as they're alive, there's still a chance for the band reunion!

Shoegaze is very underrated in my opinion.
And in my case, the situation is quite the opposite- my knowledge about Ride is rather slim. But I listened to some of their albums and so far it's a really good band. Some songs are less dreamy and more dynamic comparing it to Slowdive, but they definitely give me the same, great vibes.
So, thanks for mentioning them Rob :-)

Best*Scandal- that's a great choice! Even though they were still musical rookies and participated in creating this album only partially, I still think it's one of their greater achievements!
Can I ask you why they will never perform "Sakura Goodbye"? It's my favourite song from this album :-)
Is it about some copyrights or they just don't want to perform songs from this period anymore (with one obvious exception)?
And only the best bands have a discography from which you can't choose your permanent Top 3 :-)

I like that everyone contributed to the lyrics, especially Tomomi. She was, in a way, the creative leader at the time.

About 'SAKURA Goodbye', I really don't know if they will perform again. Just a thought. 
The only recordings we have are the old ones, I was hoping to see them perform at the 15th anniversary. At least they played 'Kagerou' [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] 

But I would love to be surprised. Haru's current vocals, new equipment, with the experience they have now would make the song even better.

The same goes for 'Pride', 'Hello! Hello!', 'Haruka', etc.
