RADWIMPS

Okay! This time its Radwimps turn!!!! I get to know this unique band by accident. I read somewhere, about their nomination for Oshakashama  for Best Rock Video in 2010 MTV World Stage VMAJ. Youtube it coz I get curious, the band name was kinda cool to me LOL . My reaction was like “woah with 1,000,000 viewing in Youtube, they must be some major band”. I feel ashamed coz I didnt know them. Streaming it and damn the the wicked bassist in that song make me hooked. Gosh that song totally kill me. Its catchy as hell.Im a huge fan now. Their latest single, DADA which reach its peak in Oricon single chart was damn awesome too. Im amused with they unique sounds and I am severely in love with their creative MV production. It just…..different.
