From sometime between 2004 and now, please enjoy Japanese power popsters Tokyo Jihen and their Hello Budokan! smash "Atarashii Bunmei-kaika PV."
Apparently, there are huge areas of the world where these folks were household words. Deservedly, I'd say, but I really wish I'd gotten the memo before yesterday.
I mean, I really like the song, but Jeebus -- this is like watching Lisa Loeb front the Jonas Brothers in a performance of a Marilyn Manson album. Or something.
Words fail me, in any case.
