ステレオポニーファイナルライブに行って来ました。
もうこのバンドのライブみられなくなるのかー、一曲一曲大切に聴いた。


ステポは唯一の同期ガールズバンドで
デビュー当時から今もずっと仲良しで
うちら主催のイベントに誘うと毎回快く引き受けてくれて。
一緒に平成のガールズロックを盛り上げてきた仲間です。


初めて大阪で対バンしたときに、
一気に仲良くなって、
初めてちゃんとライブみて、
かっこ良いパフォーマンスやなあと思って刺激的やった。
良いライバルやった。
メンバーもみんなマイペースで一緒に居て楽しいし、歳も近くて楽屋が一緒になることも多かったなあ。


新しい曲が出来る度にお互い聴き合いっこして、この曲好きだとかビデオが良いだとか言い合ってなんかソレも好きやった。
ファーストツアーのクアトロファイナルを観に行ったとき次のもっと大きなハコでのワンマンの告知をしていて、「うわー、先こされたー!」って、
ちょっと悔しかったのも最近のようによく覚えてる。


解散を知った日、とてもショックやった。
でも、三人が消える訳じゃないし、
今まで作った曲は財産やし。
変わらず愛される人たちでそれぞれ強く歩いて行ってくれると思う。
相変わらず仲良しで居たい。


バンドってとてもエネルギーが必要。
楽しいけど大変なことも沢山あるし、
長くなれば良いことも悪いことも出てくる。真剣にやればやるほど。
奇跡みたいな凄いバランスを保つことです、バンドって。
自分の想いを曲にして何百、何千、何万人もの前で歌うなんて異常なことだ。
だから素晴らしい。


例えば、今、好きなバンドが居たら、
一度でも良いからライブに行って生の音やメンバーのその日だけの言葉や表情を受け取りに行ってください。
ひとりで不安だとか、初めてで怖いとか、迷ってる間に過ぎていくこともあるのかもしれない。


ひとりでも多くの人に出逢いたいし、
来やすい状況やキモチを作ってあげたいからうちらは年中ライブしまくる。
出来るとこまでやり続けよう。
今日はわたし自身ひとりのバンドマンとしていろんなことを感じました。


ステレオポニー、ありがとう。
大好きなロックバンド。

Stereopony
Theme:RINA


We went to Stereopony's final live.
I won't be able to see this band's live anymoreー; I listened to each song with care.


Stepo is the only girls band in sync with us
We've been good friends since the days of our debuts
And they've gladly participated in our sponsored events each time.
Our friends that enlivened the girls rock of the Heisei era together with us.


The first time we played the same show with them in Osaka,
We immediately became good friends,
Saw them live properly for the first time,
I thought, "That's a cool performance" and was excited.
They were good rivals.
Being at the same pace together was fun. We're also close in age and were in the same dressing rooms together a lot.


We listened to each other's new songs each time we made them, and we liked saying "I like this song," "This video is great," and even quarreling too.
When we went to see the final show at Club Quattro of their first tour, they announced that their next one-man would be at a bigger venue, we were like, 「Ahー, they're going ahead of usー!」,
I remember it well that it was a little annoying.


The day that I knew they were disbanding, I was really shocked.
But it's not like the 3 of them were disappearing,
And the songs they've made until now are assets.
They'll always be people that are loved and walk strongly with us.
I want us to stay good friends.


Much energy is needed to be a band.
Though it's fun, there are many difficult things as well,
And the longer it gets, good things as well as bad things come about. The more seriously you can do it, the more you do it.
Maintaining a wonderful balance that's like a miracle. That's what a band is.
Singing songs of your emotions in front of hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands of people is an unusual thing.
But that's why it's wonderful.


For example, if there's a band that you like right now,
If you go to a live at least once, please go and receive the live sound and the words and expressions of the members on that day.
Nervous about being alone, being afraid for the first time, there might be things you miss while you're hesistating.


I want to meet many people,
Because we want to make situations and feelings that come easily, we do lives all year round.
We'll continue to do so until we're where we want to be.
As a single bandsman, I felt many things today.


Stereopony, thank you.
A beloved rock band.

I've heard of Stereopony but regretfully, I haven't exactly heard any of their songs. ZONE was a really good band too like @tonymiller said. My favourite ZONE song was Secret Base. Really made me cry. Although right now I am listening to Hitohira No Hanabira. It's a nice song! Happy Sad to hear any band get disbanded really. Not sure if it's for the best but it's their call. Don't feel too sad guys. Maybe they will have a reunion concert in a few years :D

I think it's safe to say that most of us who are SCANDAL fans also love Stepo. If you were fortunate enough to have seen them live you know what a fun concert they put on. I was part of the SH USA contingent that saw their two shows this past spring in S. California and had an amazing time meeting them, taking pictures with them, and even met them at the airport on a return visit to Los Angeles for a video shoot. Great memories. I will be following them as they go their separate paths.

I have only known Stereopony through SCANDAL, when they performed together in Girl's Factory... It's sad that they are disbanding, since I have only got to know them...

Rina really hit a lot of points in this blog entry... Makes me want to cry and pull all my will and courage to go to at least one SCANDAL live! Stereopony - 2012-12-28 (RINA) 867634

Wha... I didn't know Stereopony was disbanding. Why? what happen? I like Stereopony, they have some very good songs, I listen to them often. Cupido, HITOHIRA no HANABIRA, Aozora Very Good Days!!!, OVER DRIVE, just to name a few.

oh, I can really understand the sadness, but much so for Rina since she was a fan and a close friends, SCANDAL may be taking this hard since the 2 bands seem so close, MAMI is also very close with SHIHO. I hope the best for AIMI, NOHANA and SHIHO and that it doesn't effect their friendship, even though I don't know why they disbanded.

I also really hope SCANDAL would stay tight together and go on for many, many, years.

I'll just be very devastated if anything were to happen to SCANDAL... Onion Depress Onion Cry

Really hope someone can tell me the Stereopony situation.

It's new year and this is the first post I read... (T_T)

This is such a great post by RINA. Sharing her feelings like frustration when they were going ahead of SCANDAL to giving us an insight of what it's like to be in a band.
I will miss Stereopony. I may not follow them as much as I follow SCANDAL and YUI but because of their connection to both, this hurt a little bit more.

Thanks for the translation.

So sad to see one of the best girl bands disband like that.

Other sad event was Arrmy having to retire from Gacharic Spin

I saw clip of last Zone song performance live....so heartbreaking , you could see they wanted to keep going. I can't watch it again, to painful.

If Scandal disbands too soon, i don't know if i will ever recover, but at least they will leave such a huge body of great work to be treasured for many years to come. Thank you Rina for the blog, so touching.
