They’re just the coolest~* and most dynamic girl♥rock band!!!! And I do mean in the now~ as no doubt there have been many awesome bands that have come before from Judy and Mary to Whiteberry to Zone to Princess Princess and many more in~between…..and what way to better pay tribute then by releasing an all cover mini~album =)! With the theme of ‘“r”espect girl’s rock’ going back through the 80’s till 2000’s Ann Lewis’ “Roppongi shinjuu” (“Roppongi suicide”), Matsutoya Yumi’s “Koibito ga Santa Claus”, Jitterin Jinn’s “Sinky~York”, Yamaguchi Momoe’s “Rock n’ Roll Widow”, Judy and Mary’s “DAYDREAM”, Sentimental Bus’ “Sunny Day Sunday” and Zone’s “Secret base~kimi ga kureta mono~” have been SCANDAL~ized♥!!!! The first pressing includes an extra photo booklet with blog themed photos including the girls giving the camera the fin*** :P……lol they even mosaic~ed (not an actual word :P) them out….sort of =D.
Not enough can be said about the girl’s way awesome musicianship and just how talented they are but one need only hear a single track to get a taste of Wow! And SCANDAL are really cute~hot too!!…and I’ve got my favorite♥♥♥ a~h can you guess who? o(*´∀｀)o゛♥～
SCANDAL’s “R~Girl’s Rock!” can be ordered here @ Cdjapan. (only 7 first press copies left! as of 6 p.m. HST today!)
You’ll also receive a really really cuuuuuuuuuuuuute sticker set with their mini~album♥! I’m trying to figure out the whole hippo thingy going on there liked do hippos stand for “cover??” somehow as depicted in that street sign (・c_・;)？．．．．but in any case their caricatures are way adorable~♥!
I’m still new to SCANDAL having just bought their “Temptation Box” which I have to say remains as my favorite♥ album of the year so far. My initial reaction and thoughts and the song tracks and photos from SCANDAL’s “Temptation Box” can be found here~. (all songs have been re~uploaded)
