Together with VK.gy I started to do more band management. This on a free basis and based “online” only. Also mostly only for fans outside of Japan.
I always wanted to share my like for Japanese music to the world and with the start of VK.gy a few years ago it gave me the opportunity to talk with the owner John to make vk.gy even a bigger platform. VK.gy gives you basic biography information about bands, also “members” can write news articles if a band release a new CD, announce an overseas tour, announce something special. The website has grown due the time and I also got closer to some bands and band people whenever on business level or not. So last year I talked again to John and we decided to try if we could “Interview bands”. Without good business contact, it’s not easy to interview bigger names and even some smaller band’s, because they would tell you a “no”. Due the reason “because you are a fan”. So after hard work I finally got the trust of a very known guitarist in the Visual Kei (music gerne) world. Someone people look up at. And so John and I started a new section for vk.gy!
We also decided to share the interview in Japanese because we think it’s important that also Japanese are able to read it, or those who understand Japanese better than English.

OFFICIAL OVERSEAS SUPPORT
Because I created and maintaining the websites for REIREI, NETH PRIERE CAIN & i.D.A. I also support the bands to share their most important announcements to fans outside of Japan.
I also previous did do this for PARANOID≠CIRCUS, Kousai Ravel/RIZU, DEVIZE and Merry badend.
Also currently I support king zeebra with their band support, I maintain their official website and I do design time by time flyers, CD jackets etc for them.
I restarted “Japanese ROCK’N’ROLL” to create band profiles about nice and amazing ROCK bands, so that people can find the most important information about rock bands on one website.
Still in process, I also try to interview a few bands for that website.
Currently it’s almost only in Japanese, however I also try to add more English in the Future.
The interviews are both in English and Japanese
