In case anyone is interested: Ryo has a little brother, Yua, who is also in a band.
Yua is the bassist of
riff raff mahoroba (same band, different name).
you can hear samples of a few songs on their myspace.
they have two live videos at the moment on their youtube. Personally, I like them and can’t wait to hear more. The two songs are as follows: ソラにヒカリ (sora ni hikari) and クライマックス (climax). They’re very young–Yua is 19, how old Ryo was at the beginning of baroque and the others are 20 (the support drummer is 29 though).
We do not plan on covering riff raff on fyk since we are already covering kannivalism, baroque and boogieman and that’s a lot! And riff raff is quite a bit different in our opinion. We thought you might like to know, though. Nevertheless, since I’m interested in the band, I’ve been posting them on anakuro and will mention any updates about them there under
my riff raff tag my mahoroba tag. I will put these links in our links page on fuckyeahkannivalism, however. We will mention any big news like if they release a CD or anything of that sort, though.
Yua’s a sweetie from the brief conversation I had with him and whatnot. His twitter is here, you may have seen him and Ryo tweeting to each other every now and then. mun and LD/ﾘｰﾀﾞｰ/Leader both have twitters as well. Please only follow if you like them I don’t want yua to get flooded with foreigners just because he is ryo’s brother (he commented to me when I told him that I translate Ryo that now he understands why foreigners are randomly following him)
edit: vesperbell just pointed out to me i should probably add in a link to their audioleaf. This also has a few samples of their songs. in vesperbell’s words audioleaf is like the Japanese version of myspace/purevolume.
edit [10/30]: riff raff has changed their name to mahoroba. I have fixed the links in this post. They haven’t posted a new link to their OHP, the riff raff one is down now, but I will update this post again as soon as it becomes available.
