    Gunny,

    Very cool. I'd guess Andrey and anybody into metal might like.

    Lot of questions. Why are girl groups seemingly an Asian phenomena? Am I maybe just missing all the girl groups in America, Europe and elsewhere? Those girls all seem skilled. Do Asian guys not want women in their bands that are skilled musicians? Are these bands a marketing contrivance by the music labels-sorta plug n' play creations that are disgarded to be replaced by younger variants? Sex seems a big part of the act. Women age so short shelf-life?

    Look at the girl rock groups in the US. No one took them serious. Think about this, After the Runaways broke up, Joan Jett had to start her own record company to get her songs published. Lita Ford didn't see sucess till she hired Sharon Osborne as her manager. And started playing more pop friendly music.

    We don't want hard rocking women, we want the Go Gos.

    Those girls all seem skilled. Do Asian guys not want women in their bands that are skilled musicians?
    There are quite a few mostly male metal bands in Japan with female members

    Are these bands a marketing contrivance by the music labels-sorta plug n' play creations that are disgarded to be replaced by younger variants? Sex seems a big part of the act. Women age so short shelf-life?
    Lets be honest, Sex sells. 20something year old women wearing maids costumes. That's what gets people in the door the first time. The girls playing abilities is what brings them back.

    But these are not Plug and Play J-pop groups

    Perfectly answered.

    "...But these are not Plug and Play J-pop groups"

    I understand. These girls have paid their dues as musicians. J-pop? Different story. Thanks.

    Eric,

    Yeah. Bought Tired Of Waiting in 1965 as a nine year old. They never got Beatles/Stones/Who/Zeppelin great but they didn't fade away like the
    Animals, Zombies, Dave Clark 5 either. Just seemed to do their thing beautifully and without any particular expectation from the rest of us. Great band that I still re-discover. They've stayed fresh for me.

    They were among the biggest names in the UK but yup never seemed to get the accolades worldwide they deserved , the sixties produced the best ever bands who wrote and played heir own stuff , guys like the Big O an icon , who was a great influence on the Beatles �� and then along comes the likes of micky most with his designer boybands ffs and now its cowell , the scene now is just one big rip off , bands who aŕe put together for fame overnight , no apprenticeships n never seen a hostile audience , pure crap these days .imo.

    Heard this great interview on NPR with Ray Davies about a month ago.

    Gunny,

    Nice adds. JPop is starting to grow on me. But the Go Gos were no Spice Girls. Solid musicians...but Belinda Carlisle was fluff I will grant you.

    Been doing some deep dives into the music archives and came up with these ones.

    Atlantic City The Band



    Beck's Bolero Jeff Beck

    Jeff Beck, John Paul Jones, Keith Moon, Jimmy Page & Nicky Hopkins.

    Just wow!



    I'm A Man The Spencer Davis Group with an 18 year old Steve Winwood belting it out!

    Buck,

    Gotta pile on w/Keep On Running-



    and to keep that groovy 1966 vibe goin' here's the Small Faces bringing you All Or Nothing where the hits just keep coming!



    Not quite full-blown hippies yet but both Stevies (Winwood & Marriott) were beginning to step up their game.
