Get the hairspray and glitter ready; Japan Underground is back and kicking off 2012 with a dose of 80s mayhem – Japanese style! And we’re making sure it is a kind of magic, we’re flying in one of Japan’s cheesiest, most eccentric tribute acts to Queen for their first show on British soil! Calling themselves Queer (err..), the group do everything in their will to pay homage to their rock idols, from stage presence, to sound, to sporting unitards and big hair – they were even formed in the month of May, and it wouldn’t surprise us if each of their first-born were named Brian, regardless of gender.

The event will also feature DJ sets that incorporate the event’s usual dose of Japanese music throughout the night. In tribute to the live music for the night, there will also be a special cover DJ set, including covers of some of the west’s best known songs that have undergone a Japanese makeover. Plus a mix of tracks from the best in Japanese hair metal, 80s J-pop deviants and modern visual kei and electro.

Glam up, bring some friends, and party like it’s 1989! We’ll leave you with a video from our last event:

About Tom Smith
Some say he's fuelled on nothing but energy drinks, and that when he visits Japan, he spends the whole time engaging the ground in an all too familiar way. But what we do know is that his words on the country's entertainment and culture find their way into NEO Magazine on a monthly basis, while everything else finds its way here. Be it quirky news item from the Land of the Rising Sun, or a story so gruesome it'd be rude not to pass it on, you'll find it here along with his general posts about life, work and most importantly play. And yes, he has had articles printed in the likes of MCV, GamesMaster, 360 Gamer and more, thanks for noticing.
