ーーFAR EAST PHALLUS KICKER – LINER NOTES

Song Description HIDEKI

1.極東LOVERS (FAR EAST LOVERS)
At the time we formed, we hadn’t decided on a specific concept yet.
But we definitely needed a song that would represent FAR EAST PHALLUS KICKER.
When I imagined a scene of us four, the atmosphere of the song plopped up, which made me think, “Oh! This feeling is perfect!” From there it didn’t take a long time to finish the song.

2.candy Blue
For this song I wanted to try an experiment. I wanted to create a song with 3 chords, those who know Chu-ya’s music know that it’s not a common style/method for him… As a result it turned out really cool!! … A minor of 3 chords♬→ It was an absolute must♪

3.love 2 die
I needed a song that was gritty and fast with a sense of gravity for the overall balance. The feeling of the riffs are really nice!

4.dead road
Like “FAR EAST LOVERS” I wanted to create a song that would be suitable for the band. I wrote this song with the beauty of “JAPANESE LANGUAGE” and “ROCK” in my mind, and I also wrote half of the lyrics. The words are very simple and easy to understand, but the music and lyrics are sad in some way. This song also represents FAR EAST PHALLUS KICKER!

Song Description Chu-ya

  1. 極東LOVERS (Far East LOVERS)
    風 (Kaze) Wind → As fast as the wind.
  2. candy Blue
    林 (Hayashi) Forest → As Quiet as the forest.
  3. love 2 die
    火 (Hi) Flame → As daring as fire.
  4. dead road
    山(Yama) Mountain → Immovable as the mountain.

The back-title of this mini-album is (風林火山 Furinkazan)
“As fast as the wind, as quiet as the forest, as daring as fire, and immovable as the mountain“
“Move as swift as a wind, stay as silent as forest, attack as fierce as fire, undefeatable defense like a mountain“.

As「FAR EAST PHALLUS KICKER」we are hitting the indie scene with this spirit!
PLEASE Look forward to our future activities!

ーーCOMMENT

you can try…

but u can’t be

I refuse to believe there’s anything on that cup. Those lips don’t look functional.

Thank you for growing my Japanese vocabulary

From the band name I thought this is Leda’s new project.

Ive no clue who leda is.

Well, he was a guitarist in Far East Dizain (Deluhi, Undivide, Galneryus, Babymetal and something else)?
But yeah, after seeing “FAR EAST” I thought Leda is being naughty again.

:rofl: Well those words arent really used…
Usually people say ちんちん

But I didn’t know what PHALLUS or even Faroki did mean. :rofl:

Ive Never followed any of those bands. :sweat_smile:

So yeah leda is also naughty guy? :rofl:

But I hope you check out these guys music is amazing😊

Well, he’s at least on my naughty list :slight_smile:

But of course, I’ll check these guys music!
