Psst! Japanese Rock Fan Types...

Just got this off an email from centigrade-j, y'know, those kindly people whose translations of Japanese songs half of us have been mooching for the last few years. It looks like they're going to put out a print magazine called jrock ink (related to the book) about Japanese rock, and the first issue's free to anyone who emails them at their site here.

centigrade-j's staff cover some pretty varied musical tastes, and having followed the stuff on their site, they do put out consistently well-written pieces. It should be interesting to see the range of rock they're going to represent. (Also looking forward to the opinions -- Boo and Da Crank love their music and know their facts).

I subscribed!

Btw, I love centigrade-j. I met boo and Da Crank last year (though Da Crank says he was too drunk to remember anything we talked about) and was star-struck in that dorky, J-rock fangirly way. Let's just say I automatically fall in love with anyone who knows their J-rock stuff.

I love centigrade-j too. Their writing is very consistent, the articles always interesting, and I'm confident their staff will handle their subject matter with a lot of respect. Lucky you for meeting them! This was the Gackt-related thing last year right?

yay, I'm happy for this. I've been reading the centigrade-j site ever since I was a mere n00b to j-rock :)

I first read them as a noob as well. It made me less nooby. :)
