Omokage Lucky Hole
Ore no Sei de Koushien ni Ikenaktta- Because of me we Couldn’t go to Koushien
Pachinko Yatteru Aida ni Umareta Mamonai Musume wo Kuruma no Naka de Shinaseta… Natsu- That Summer When I Let my Baby Daughter Die in The Car While I Was Playing Pachinko
Ano Otoko no Ryou ga Ookatta- That Man Blew a Huge Load
Gojuuyon Hiai, Machibou- Waiting in Vain For 54 Days
If you hadn’t already gathered, those are a few song titles by Omokage Lucky Hole. Their subject-matter ranges from the absurd, the pathetic, to the downright dirty. They mostly focus on that last one.
According to Japanese Wikipedia, Omokage Lucky Hole is a “Japanese funk band”, but that isn’t terribly accurate. While a lot of their songs certainly are funky, they often times fall into the category of R&B, with lots of smooth, slow jams and a few no-nonsense hip-hop pieces. They also have a good number of fast-paced, upbeat pieces that jive more with the funk side of things than with R&B. Their compositions are primarily driven by loud, commanding, and energetic horns; backed by solid bass and percussion; with an electric guitar added in when needed. How they structure their songs fluctuates between very standard and by the book structures, to more interesting and organic ones.
Hey buddy, what's the very last album you got on that list? I've seen it posted before on here, but I never looked into it.
Their distinct funky sound is only part of what sets them apart from a lot of Japanese musical acts. As I mentioned in the opening, a lot of their strength lies in their lyric writing. The topics covered are oftentimes sordid, and usually focus on the the pathetic nature of Japanese middle-class life. Lead vocalist Acky’s delivery of each and everyone sordid lyric oozes with soul, and he will often times sing from the point of view of a woman, using the feminine Japanese pronoun “atashi”. These lyrics, matched with Acky’s singing and the band’s funky instrumental backing, makes for some of the most ironic, and at times downright hilarious music I’ve ever heard. It’s very dry humour–and at times very dark.
If you can’t understand Japanese, the instrumental portion of Omokage’s music should be enough to engage you if you’re a fan of funk and R&B. However, just a hint of Japanese knowledge adds a completely new dimension to these songs, and you’ll start listening to them for the lyrics. Which is rare in Japanese music, I find.
The only torrent I could find:
Keiji Haino - Moto no tokoro ni kaeshite yaru ore no ari ka wo tashikameru tame ni
>noise rock, experimental
Rare Keiji Haino album that I can't seem to find any information about. I think some of the songs have more performers on them.
v/a - mikgazer v.1
got link from archive
this is pretty much an essential
Shinsei Kamattechan - Tsumanne
>j-rock, noise pop
Why do you listen to music simply because it's Japanaaese?
especia - GUSTO
Because I like the music I like. I haven't seen an American equivalent to OLH, and I liked Midori, because one single track by them reminded me of death grips, and they don't even sound alike.
This is the only video I could find that had the song in good quality:
You should check out omokage lucky hole then man, I find their music pretty easy to keep up with over most artists.
I want to get into the scene, I want to participate in it.
You'll only be disappointed because authentic city pop doesn't really sound terribly similar to that. I like Adventure by Momoe Kikuchi

to be honest, I don't think it would be that hard, I would just write silly lyrics and aim it for te metal crowd over there. I know that it will be actually difficult making what i said about it not being hard invalid, but whatever.
I linked a torrent on an earlier post, but no one is seeding. I am new as fuck to torrenting, but the torrent downloaded all the songs from three dfferent albums but one.>>48519179
that's the one.
Thank you so much man, I've been looking for this one for a while. I actually have ningen on cd from when I went there, as well as a few midori cds
Yeah lol. Thinking of two different people... :s
wow, what a goldmine
mass of the fermenting dregs,
ogre you asshole

the album second in the second to last row
sorry if its meticulous, thank you so much
What kind of a goldmine lacks Downy?
Thanks, I was just having a hard time with the letters, I'm done downloading for the day. When I get several downloads, hey don't get as many listens as if I were to download a single album or putting a single cd into the computer. It's like I just grab shit in hopes I'll like it. Luckily I'm more careful now and I'm sure I'll enjoy what was recommended.
This is soooo weird, I'll probably get into it, because I liked a lot of the songs so far. But woooow.
Hey guys, I don't know shit about japanese music (except old animes openings).
Is their any "classic albums" that I should listen immediatly?
By "classic albums" I mean the equivalent of Sgt Pepper, Dark Side Of The Moon or London Calling, you know, the kind of stuff everybody love.
Thanks for your help, fellows.

I don't know how comparable this is, but I was suddenly reminded of Kiiiii (Death Grips lite?)
I don't think that they're active anymore.
you would be missing a great deal of music if you didn't pay attention to Japan.
In 2012 Japan, surpassed the U.S in terms of music revenue.
a really crazy thing hapened in japan since the globalization affected them.
when they broke up with their tradition and open their senses to east culture, they recived a lot of music that had a bizarre relation with them. music like jazz, rock, hip hop, etc, were listened by japanese musicians and then they make their own interpretation of that music. the result is a music that, for the opinion of the "true" jazz musicians from east is just a mere copy. for this kind of musicians the authenticity of the music is in its roots: the japanese jazz musicians are not black, then, they can only copy jazz, but something related with the roots of jazz is missing.
but here is the amazing thing about japan: they have permed a double cut with the tradition with this movement: first, they cut with their tradition and open their senses to east, and second, they cut their tradition with wast at the same time, listening their music, making a new interpretation of that music but, with the lack of the traditional roots from east the direction is not crystallized and they can go to direction that can not be think by the east composers.
in this way, bands as satanicpornocultshop make a reinterpretation of the cumbia song by jose luis perales. its pretty amazing what happend in their county
