Back in Tokyo in 1966, four high school kids formed a band they dubbed The Mops. Originally The Mops (Mikiharu Suzuki (drums), Taro Miyuki (guitar), Masaru Hoshi (or Katu Hoshi/guitar), and Kaoru Murakami (bass) were just instrumentalists who were digging hard on surf rock grooves. But that all changed when they were exposed to the sounds of bands like Jefferson Airplane and The Doors. When drummer Mikiharu Suzuki’s brother Hiromitsu joined the band as their vocalist, things really got fuzzy in all the right ways for The Mops.

Loudness the best rock band to ever emerge from Japan > https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loudness_(band)



Quote: Loudness (ラウドネス Raudonesu?) is a Japanese metal band formed in 1981 by guitarist Akira Takasaki and drummer Munetaka Higuchi. They were the first Japanese heavy metal act signed to a major label in the United States, releasing twenty six studio albums (five in America) and nine live albums by 2014 and reaching the Billboard Top 100 in their moment of maximum international popularity, as well as charting on Oricon dozens of times.

I saw them a few times. MZA!!

Raudonesu is the katakana translation for loudness. Remember, the Japanese cannot really pronounce the letter L. It comes out like an R. Interestingly, the letter R comes out like an L in the reverse situation.

And no. The greatest band to ever come out of Japan is X Japan.
