Hello!!! I'm phenom89, I'm italian... and I'm a big Scandal fan (and of other 1000 japanese artist/band)!!!
When I've time (pretty rare), I write for a little italian website about J-Music.

I was lucky enough to travel to Tokyo two times (that will be three as soon as Japan open borders), and the second time I've been to both concerts at Zepp Tokyo in the final part of Scandal's "Fuzzy Summer Mood" tour.

What's your standard!?

Hi,

Welcome to SH Happy

I am an English fan and sadly I have never been to Japan ( yet ) but I did see them when they came to London and I hope very much they will come again next year.

Hope you have fun here.

Hello phenom89,

For me it would be a dream to go to a SCANDAL concert. I don't know which is more difficult, me going to Japan or the band coming to South America.

Anyway, let us know when you post something about Scandal on your website. I believe I can partially understand italian, as its origin is the same as portuguese.

Welcome to the forum!
M+T cheers

Benvenuto, phenom89.

What area are you from?  I'm curious where in Italy Scandal is making an impact.  I'm a combination of Abruzzese, Calabrese and Napoletano but I'm from New Jersey where most Italians ended up in the US.

Did you discover Scandal through the other J-Rock bands, or were they your starting point?

I've already written something, a pretty quick thing on my recap of year 2020:

I have to admit (please don't ban me XD) that Scandal it's not my top favorite... it's second.
My Top 3 are: LiSA, Scandal, The Pillows

Than, I can go with everything: from Polkadot Stingray to Maximum The Hormone, from Pedro to Number-Girl, from SpecialThanks to Glim Spanky, ecc

I pretty hate idol bands and all the the system behind idol world (I've only liked one band: Babyraids Japan... that doesn't exists anymore).

Assisi, a little town right in the middle of Italy.

I've discovered Scandal with Bleach anime.

You hate idol groups....burn the infidel !

Only joking, everyone is free to like who they want of course, I am a huge idol fan as I am sure you have noticed but I also like many other Japanese bands and singers, it would be a boring world if we all liked the same thing Happy

Salve phenom89!
It nice to meet not only a Scandal fan, but also a fan from Italy Happy
Just like other members, I didn't have a chance to visit Japan, maybe next year?
But at least I have been to Italy many times- veramente, il bello paese!!

Wow, you're from Assisi? I've been there once- such a beautiful town! It has so many delightful areas, not only Basilica di San Francesco!

Thank you for the link- I will gladly read something about my 2nd favourite music genre in my 2nd favourite language :-)
I won't lie that I thought about the same thing as Tony RINA lol
You are brave admitting, that you hate idol bands/groups!
But I believe you are amid the most tolerant forum members on the internet, so you should be fine ;-)


P.S. By any chance, do you like Jovanotti?

What can I say... maximum respect for anyone, but I think that the "idol world" has his strength points in what I'm not interested in.
I don't listen K-Pop too.

To be honest, thanks to a cover of one of my favourite bands, I've discovered NiziU (are they considered an idol band???) and they are very catchy!!!

Cool, the world is little after all XD

Jovanotti... I liked him a long time ago (until first years of 2000).
Than he, slowly but constantly, began to change his music style into "dance" music... too much for me, and I don't like him anymore.

I'm used to Mami's guitar solos now MAMI dance

Hello phenom 89, welcome to SH! I'm from Russia

Like you, I have been to Japan 2 times (the last one in December 2018). And I also really hope soon they open the borders and we can visit again. And the euro tour too, I have tickets since the beginning of 2020.

My favorite Japanese bands are SCANDAL, Aldious, BAND-MAID, Q'ulle, PassCode, BABYMETAL, SILENT SIREN, Gacharic Spin, LOVEBITES, Mary's Blood, NECRONOMIDOL, KAQRIYOTERROR, BRATS, ぜんぶ君のせいだ。

I have not been in Assisi but I visited Sicily in 2015.

Well, you said you like Pedro so that would make two!
I'm a huge fan of SpecialThanks too, read your article and Sunctuary was a pleasant surprise for me too, but it's #4 best of 2020 in my own list.

Can I borrow your quote? It sounds perfectly diplomatic about things someone can dislike :-)
I don't listen to K-Pop either- Japanese music is enough!

"thanks to a cover of one of my favourite bands, I've discovered NiziU"
Ha, ha, just like me :-)

And I've noticed there's no Nemophila entry on your site- if you could consider adding these ladies in the future, it would be great!

And speaking about your texts there, I like what you wrote about KftD album, especially about Tomomi!
TOMO excited
Personally, I think that "A.M.D.K.J." might be her "pezzo forte".

Well, I still like Jovanotti, but you're absolutely right- his albums from the past century were much, much better. For me, the highest moment was with "L'ombelico del mondo" and it was like twenty-something years ago...

I will never get tired of this gif with Mami!

Use that quote as you like. It's kinda diplomatic... but it's true that in idol music I acknowledge something, simply it's not my style. There are music styles that for me should burn in hell (reggaeton on top of everything).

From Nemophila I've listened only little pieces of their songs, very quick (I've to listen them better). First impression is that the singer is amazing, but the music is a bit too metal for me... maybe I'll talk about them on my 2021 recap.
The problem is always free time and fatigue: for example, when I'm tired from a day at work I don't like to listen new music... I've to be very relaxed and concentrated while I listen new stuff.

I have フレンズ discography to listen from at least 3 months.



KftD album: I have a very special bond with "Fuzzy" (I was there when they first sung it, before the official release)... and I love listening "Saishūheiki, Kimi" with the bass power of my car.
"A.M.D.K.J." probably is the hit, but I love "Ceramic Blue" / "Tonight" / "Masterpiece" the same way.

"L'ombelico del mondo" it's very very old XD
Let's say that until around 2010, I could find at least 1-2 good songs in his album... now is a "black hole" XD

We are on Scandal forum so I should not write things like this, but Mayu (from Nemophila) is IMO the best Japanese female vocalist. Absolutely amazing!
I always thought that there's something wrong with me, because I often like to listen to new music when it's calm and quiet around me. Now, thanks to you I see it's a normal thing :-)

Tell me about it! I still have some Scandal albums to discover. Sigh
And thank you for this フレンズ MV!  Another Japanese band on my "listen to" list!

You were there? Nice!
Well, I also have a special bond with "Fuzzy", because it was (probably) the very first Scandal song I have ever heard. I don't understand why some fans don't like it.
And "Saishūheiki, Kimi" is one of my favourite track when they play it live- I like its aggressiveness.

~~~~~~~~~~
Also to the person who creates Scandal emoticons- what can I do to ask you for creating an emoticon with Haruna doing her signature gesture (pew!pew!) during mentioned above song?
Just name the price ;-) Pretty please MAMI plz
~~~~~~~~~~

I started to listen to his music when I first saw "Serenata Rap" on MTV, that's why I like this period the most.
And yes, now and then- there's sadly no comparison :-(
