Informative and great for its exposure of Japanese music.
You've actually introduced me to some new Japanese bands that I have come to love! This podcast is great for those looking for a different variety of Japanese bands and music to get into. I'm a Perfume fan so I decided to watch the podcast about Perfume first and was really happy that you managed to interview people from different parts of the globe! I will definitely be checking out the other podcasts.
Great music! Great to hear Johnny Marr loves Japanese music. Can't wait for the next one!!!
Hey, loving the tracks on here! Keep it up ICFJ - I've subscribed and will be listening closely every month! Pinky Doodle Poodle sound wicked - I can't wait to see them live... And of course Mr Marr is a godlike genius, so if he says Japanese music is good, then it definitely is!
