Hello There :)

    Hi there! My username (as you can see) is fuu_fuuz,
but you can just call me Fuu if you want.  Anyways, I joined this
community because I am a fan of the shibuya-kei genre. At first, when I
started listening to (and enjoying) Cibo Matto last year, I've never
heard of this genre. Two days ago, I discovered Pizzicato 5, and this
genre, and the rest is history. I'm currently in 7th grade (I'm twelve
currently, and turning 13 in February) and none of my classmates (or
anyone in my school for that matter) have heard of any indie/foreign
music acts, so I don't really have anyone to talk to about music I
like. Anyways, I hope to have fun here.

    Also, just to save bandwidth, time, ect. I'll just
ask my question here. Anyone know of any other shibuya-kei acts similar
to/enjoyable as Pizzicato 5 or Cibo Matto? Thanks a lot :)

 (Also, sorry for my crappy spelling, english is not my first language and I only came to Canada a couple of moths ago)

Hello! Welcome!

You might want to check out Buffalo Daughter, Fantastic Plastic Machine, Kahimi Karie, and Takako Minekawa.
Thanks. Just checked out Fantastic Plastic Machine. They have some pretty nice tracks.
I just got really deep into shibuya kei. I've been listening to the Pizzicato Five since 1997, and just recently i've been able to get alot of information about many different shibuya kei artists. Trust me, there are a lot of really obscure acts out there that are incredible. I've been on a two month long downloading binge, which has been rather fruitfull. I purchaced 6 issues of a Japanese Shibuya Kei magazine called "Marquee" off of another user on here, and that's where i'm getting my info. And welcome to the club of being the only one you know who's into this kind of music. Even most Japanese people I know have never even heard of it. If you want more info feel free to hit me up.
I've found it quite occasional that there are more people into J-pop/J-rock(which I have low interest in) but who knows nothing about Shibuya-Kei. Quite sad.

By the way Fuu, welcome around!
I like Cornelius. Pizzicato Five are one of my favorites.

Actually, I got a lot of Shibuya Kei you can download off my AIM sn "Makenshi Radio". I work on a Japanese music site that specializes more into Japanese indie and Shibuya kei rather than Jrock and visual kei. http://www.makenshiradio.com
