Juicy Fruits-Drink!,LP,1980,Japan


Mor Japanese weirdness today!Very rare debout LP by this punk/weird pop Japanese group.Any help will be appreciated.
Wow!that was fast!Thanks to Hircou and the anonymous friend now we have both infos and sleeve scan!Thank you very much!

Members: Iria - Atsuko Okuno, Toshihiko Shibaya, Yuji Okiyama, Toshio Takagi

They made a debut with "Jenny Ha Gokigen Naname" based on Haruo Chikada & BEEF (Yutaka Shigeki formerly in Yoni-Bayashi was in the band while he moved out). Techno Kayo (To be accurate, it's Techno-arranged Group Sounds + Ventures Kayo ) concept was well accepted and they send techno pop which had not been for mass yet into the Japanese pop chart. "Koi No Benchseat" is a master piece though it was B-sided. The Bonchi (Kansai Comedy Duo) covered it and they built the foundation for Techno Kayou. At the same time, the momentum of techno pop as subculture started to decline since then. A hidden masterpiece album is "27-fun No Koi" that Seiji Toda supported as an arranger. In '83, they shifted and made hits covering Southern All Stars' Keisuke Kuwata works (Sonna Hiroshi Ni Damasarete). Yuji Okiyama whose glasses are cute during his time in Juicy also released a superb Eleki Kayou (like the Ventures) song called "Tokyo Kiken Yaro (Dangerous Guy)".

Below, please find woefully imprecise translations (rendered via Babelfish) of Drink!'s song titles.

1. As for uncertain adventure
2. going out concept
3. グッバイ 専 course
4. love heroine
5. beat time
6. romantic love タクティクス
7. maiden it is loose as for pupil
8. rain of the bench seat
9. burning of the countdown
10 ジェニー if mood the licking
11. rhythm it is decided
12. そ わ そ わ streets

Best,

Tom/TLASILA

great addition. there aren't enough ways to say thank you for this treasure among blogs. the third track is missing though on this one. do i have the right file?

Jim Slip said...

Nice techno-pop release.

The third track is missing though. Could you post it somewhere separately?

Jon said...

I'm sorry for bothering you, but could you upload this again? Rapidshare requires you to be a Premium User to download this now; I have no idea why...

Thank you!
