Text-wise there are only four pages--actually two end sheets. J-Rock is defined by Rusanchiman Takeda, the stage name of a guitarist for independent band, the "Tsuberukurin". Japanese rock groupies apparently aren't like band groupies in the west. "We enjoy being flattered by our groupies, but, it's not like we fool around with them. I don't know about foreign groupies, but Japanese groupies don't offer themselves to us. They always come to our gigs to bring a lot of excitement. Japanese groupies are into the `fashion.' Since we are known as a `visual rock band', wearing hardcore and crazy fashions, our groupies try to fit in with us by coming to our gigs and dressing in crazy and sexy ways too. They relate to us by mimicking our style. In other words, they want to have a spiritual connection with us. I find our groupies are cute and touching. We don't have to fool around with them. I just enjoy watching them."
This rock band member asked their "cameraman to take snap shots of these groupies." The pictures were then made into a photo album and spread worldwide.
A sixteen-year-old high school student wrote the groupies description. She said, "her parents are very conservative, when I would go out to see him perform they always yelled, `Stop wearing those clothes!' So, now, I put my outfit in a plastic bag and leave my house wearing normal clothing. I change in the bathroom of the closest train station where the gig is going to be I get really `turned on' when I'm at a concert." She goes on to describe the rest of her feelings about j-rockers, and her fellow groupie friends and their fashions. Her description is very fresh.
The book contains excellent performance photos of the following Indies Bands: Atelier, cinema-s `trip, Undead, lilyspider, Maverick, Rutiru, and Sinner along with dozens and dozens of their cute female fans, four of their fan's children, and their Japanese subculture fashions. These portraits are in sections called Groupies Galleries. This is a fun book. One can almost feel the beat and see the happy fans dancing in time with their favorite J-Rock musicians.
And also, an interesting look at the various Indie Visual Kei bands in Japan to the mom and their toddler dressed in matching J-Rock outfits.
Of course, there are photography of people sporting interesting outfits such as the girl in Pokemon Pikachu outfit but her face features the long bangs in dark black and blonde and piercings on her lips.
Some fans featured are those who sport the black leather, some that sport a Burberry style of fashion, some that sport really dark outfits to some who are very colorful in their clothing presentation. And of course, several who are obsessed with the Rococo era and sport that Lolita look.
This book has a little bit of everything and for those wanting large photography, this book features full page, full body photograph. Only the few Indie visual-kei band photos will you find half-page photography or quarter-page photography.
Also, the photography of the people featured are all female with the exception of the Indie visual-kei bands. The photos feature their names and ages.
So, for those wanting a resource from the hair, the makeup, the clothing and accessories and the shoes, this book does a good job of that.
By saying that, this is pretty much what the book is for. A visual resource.
This book does not go into the various J-Rock fan's names or where they purchased their outfits. No interviews.
