Hey everyone!
I noticed that there were no Base Ball Bear threads, so I decided to make one, in case there are any fans of this awesome band! Smile

Base Ball Bear is made up of four members (3 guys and 1 girl):
Yusuke Koide (Lead Singer/Rhythm Guitar)
Shiori Sekine (Backup Singer/Bassist/The only female member of the band)
Shohei Yuasa (Lead Guitarist)
Daisuke Horinouchi (Drummer)

Their music can be described as power pop or pop rock. Although they may not be as visual as other bands, I think that BBB lets their music speak for itself; their songs are composed with catchy and beautiful melodies. They don't get a ton of publicity like other bands, but they're definitely worth checking out! It's also interesting to note that none of the members are over 20.

Here are some publicity pics of the band (click on them to make them bigger):



And here's my favourite song by them (so far), Electric Summer:
*NOTE: I've put it through anonym.to to prevent SendSpace from tracing it back here. This is just a precaution so that the forums won't be forced, by authorities, to stop uploading music.
Electric Summer

I hope you enjoy the mp3! Hopefully some BBB fans will post and we can start chatting about them! If you would like another mp3 or a PV, just let me know! Nod

The only decent biography I could find on BBB in English is http://nippop.com/artist/artist_id-178/artist_name-base_ball_bear/
A complete biography in Japanese can probably be found on Google somewhere (sorry! I don't understand Japanese yet!).

They even have their own internet variety show called: Base Ball Bear Variety. Clips of it can be found on YouTube.

Here's an awesome fansite/mp3 blog of them: http://novewind.blogspot.com/.

Hope you enjoy BBB!!! Smile

yup. manatsu no jouken is one of my favourites! Smile What place is it on the Oricon charts??? I'm so happy that they're finally getting some exposure!
And yes, Dramatic is an awesome song too! The video is quite quirky, but still cool! I can upload the mp3 if you'd like! Smile

Yes, everyone is right about them being a really good band, Nod seems like most have forgotten about them, No it's been a while since there's been a post. I have all their PVs, I'll upload them soon so maybe more will like them. Laughing If anyone has seen the movie Linda, Linda, Linda(a really good movie), the bass player Shiori Sekine is one of the main characters, she also plays bass in the group she's in, I forget the name, in the movie.

^ Nobody here will help you anyway because you are a lurker, obviously. Get off from Channel Ai and serach your stuff elsewhere, okay?

I don't mean to look like that honest. I just joined because this seemed like a good place to find music. I listen to a lot of asian music but unfortunately I can't find where to download a lot of the songs I want. Sometimes I find them but they are in RAR format. I'm sorry if it looks like that but I want to continue staying on this site because I want to find out other music as well! I hope that I can be of some help to other people as well

^Those RAR files you're talking about are copressed files that have the mp3 files inside...so you just need to download them and extract them using WinRar.

Sorry if Crystallas sounded too rude (calm down little squid Tongue ) Laughing ..but maybe he was mad because this isn't a site for downloads, this is a forum dedicated to Ai-chin Meow

Thats true. I mean, you can register in a forum like Bww2, Aznsource or Asianload if you just want to download and / or listen to music. Of course you can stay at Channel Ai, but therefore you have to like Ai-chin at least a little bit. Otherwise it's just useless, okay Smile? Sorry if my salutation was too rude.

Ok then, so this site is not about music but about Ai-chin? Can you define what exactly is that? Tongue
