I realized there's probably still quite a few people who come here for Nakata Yasutaka news updates on his work/the artists he produces, so I figured I'd make this post. :x Before I go into it, I do want to thank the few people who post here that always link back to my news posts on my fuckyeahystk Tumblr, I appreciate being sourced!
First of all, all of capsule's lyrics have been translated by Tumblr user renai-junkie
!. She has also done all the COLTEMONIKHA lyrics here
and has translated what I could save of Nakata's old-as-heck blog posts. Nakata's blog entries are being posted here
, I'm kind of rationing them out because there's only so many but they'll eventually all be there and I post one every Sunday.
Next, Tumblr user roomgirl
has recently done a translation of a FLASH BACK era capsule interview
and also, using scans I provided, a MARQUEE interview from COLTEMONIKHA
back in 2006 shortly before their debut mini-album came out. If either of those time periods/artists are favorites of yours, I highly recommend checking out those interviews! They're great.
Lastly, I wanted to put a list here of specific sites (well, really just Tumblr blogs -- social media sort of took over everything) for specific artists that are associated with Nakata Yasutaka. They're the go-tos for news updates and translations of said artists, so they're a better bet than this community. I'll throw these under a read more:( Read moreCollapse )
I realize it kind of sucks to have to check multiple sources for news on different artists, but if you want the bare basics of all Nakata-related acts, just going to fuckyeahystk is fine. :x Also, I've heard through the woodwork that there's a lot of Perfume Facebook fan pages, so if you're interested in that there's another avenue from which to get news/participate in fan discussions.
Oh, one more thing... This isn't related to Nakata, but RAM RIDER is planning to release a new album this year. [Cheers and confetti from absolutely no one besides me and roomgirl.] He also debuted a new song at an ASOBINITE event the other night, so I'm hoping he'll play it on his internet radio show AUDIO GALAXY
this coming Tuesday.
