Y is for Yellow Fried Chickenz

This side project, headed by J-pop superstar Gackt, started as a solo endeavor before turning into a vaunted touring group. I basically had to buy the album “Yellow Fried Chickenz I” because I adore Gackt. The guys traveled not only Japan but sold out venues across Europe. Too bad they didn’t tour the United States. I thank Rokkyuu Magazine for the image at bottom.


As for a mock band name, how about Yesterday’s News? It makes me think of Huey Lewis and the News but I learned that the name is a song title by an alternative country band, so maybe they are a Whiskeytown tribute group.

* Notice: I anticipate restricted Internet access for several days at least as the challenge comes toward a close. So please excuse me if I do not reply to your comment anytime soon. My online activity is currently restricted to reading and commenting on others’ blogs. Thank you for expressing interest in my frivolous entries! Now, please enjoy the eye candy below.

  1. I am laughing at the moment at the name, Yellow Fried Chicken. Of course, I've never heard of them but it going to be wonderful looking them up on YouTube.

    1. Oh, how fun to challenge you, my friend. Don't fear if you don't become a fan. You write such great vignettes that Gackt and company should be fans of you!

  4. Ah, Gackt! I have friends who went to Japan for Christmas, just to catch his concert. :) I love how he and Adam Lambert were sometimes on the same wavelength with regard to their guitarist. :) Ahem. :) Your new band has interesting possibilities! :)
