😄 hi-ho minna-o! anyone else like Pizzicato 5? I found thier CDs in my local music store, i was SHOCKED 😲 but i bought 3 of thier cds, and they're al together very solid Mod- style cds. thier music id very soothing and make very good background music ^.^ (more so than like singing music, its very stylish sounding, I'd play it at upscale parties xD)
 
They used to play Pizzacato 5 on MTV2 over here.

I'm not really a big fan of their music tho =P
 
Pizzicato 5 were the initiators of the well known Shibuya sound.
The band actually started out with five members, but by the time they made it big in the rest of the world, they were thinned down to producer Konishi Yasuharu and singer Maki Nomiya.

The band has disbanded now, but the two members still produce quite some new material. Maki Nomiya has released three solo albums and Konishi Yasuharu does a lot of remixes and productionwork for other artists. He produced the latest Kyoko Fukada album for instance and you can find a lot of singles these days containing a Readymade remix. Anything that says Readymade comes from Konishi Yasuharu.

You can find a great discography here:

Awsome! yeah i was sort of wondering why they called themselves Pizzicato 5 when All I kept sings was the two of them xD I was sorta miffed though, on the one CD i bought I was hoping to get the vocal version of "Darlin of Discotique" but it came with the instramental version only. but still, very very good songs ^.^
 
yah, and fantastic plastic machine and u.f.o
i kinda found them all out at the same time, so that's why i relate them all :eek:
 
Heeheehee! xD we love you p5555 oh yes we doooooo we love you p5555 I might be true, when you're not near to us, we're bluuuueee oh P5 we love yoooooooou! :D
 
I love Pizzicato Five. Their music is very catchy, and it's just ear candy. Yasuharu Konishi and Maki Nomiya make a talented pair.
Some of my favorite tunes are:
"Twiggy Twiggy"
"Strawberry Sleighride"
"Such a beauiful girl like you"
"Playboy playgirl"
"It's a Beautiful Day"
"I hear a symphony"
"Porno 3003"
"Nonstop To Tokyo"
"Me, Japanese Boy"
P5 ROCKS! 😍 😄

Doitashimashite, and yes, most definitely.

If you look here, this part of the "post your picture" thread provides infomation and links to the story of Hachiko.

;)
 
i'm looking! thanks!
it took me two years to find him (pronouncing properly, but emphasis wrong)
 
I couldn't agree more. Pizzicato Five are pure genius. They've made so much material, it's so diverse and yet so good. To me they are _the_ band. It's a shame they split but nobody can keep going forever I guess...
 
Wow... Pizzicato Five are the best... they are truly one of a kind.

Some of my fav. songs (aside from everything Hachiko listed) are:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Barbie Dolls
Curcuit no Musume (feat. Puffy)
Disco Love
Lupin III
Spell Bound/Ice Cream Meltin' Melow
African Queen

And yes... I cry myself to sleep everynight because P5 broke up :( 😭 ... But I think Yasuhiru Konishi is still doing the odd solo work here and there.

His remixes of the Jackson 5's "I Want You Back", and James Brown's "Sex Machine" (both under the Readymade label) are sheer genius :music: :smoke:
 
P5? 😄
I tried to order some of their records through a website that is selling cd's etc. on the net (have been hunting for them), but after a few months they sent me an e-mail that they can't receive those from matador rec.. :( So, no cd's for me then..
 
I'm not much in Japanese music, but I love Pizzicato Five. Unfortunately, I found only 1 CD in Croatia (Playboy & Playgirl) and it's goooood!
 
I know it's low of me, but I can't find anything good or fresh about their music, it sound old fashioned and not my type at all, maybe my 70y old fathers ... :p

I know it is low of me to say this, but you just don't "GET" it because you don't know "good" or "fresh" if they bit you in the ***. I'm kidding!!!:p

Everyone has different taste in music.
 
I love P5...😍 my mom listens to them a lot so when I was a kid (which wasnt too long ago) I used to borrow the CDs all the time. Happy End Of The World is my favorite of theirs... 😎
