Up-Front Thread

Postby Zunu » Tue Dec 31, 2013 1:03 pm

Wherein we uncover the mystery of why "UP FRONT MUSIC INC." remains suspiciously non-hyphenated.

Also, I suppose, a general discussion of the various non-H!P related Up-Front projects.

In my opinion, I would rather have this as an "Other UF Acts" Thread. :S

Why not just Keep This in the Satoumi/Satoyama thread? And I'm not opposed to a UF* thread but i like how things are right now :/

Hmmm, I don't know. On one hand, I feel like B&S discussion could go in the Satoyama/Satoumi thread because it is somewhat related.
But on the other hand, if y'all really want a general UF thread, I could probably make that happen.

For purely selfish reasons of keeping the first post updated with members, releases, and unreleased songs I'd like if the LovendoR thread could just stay as it is.

sada*: The Satoyama TV show has ended, but there is still an upcoming event for Satoyama/umi, so no, I don't think the program has technically come to an end yet. They might continue it without the show for a while (or end it after this event - who knows).
----

To keep this post at least slightly on topic to the current thread title; I really enjoyed the preview for Bitter & Sweet's first song. I'm a little worried about Asahi scream-singing again (the last time I heard her attempt one of her songs in a more "rock"-ish style, it wasn't very pleasant), but it has been a while since I've listened to her so she's probably gotten better.

I think UUG and Kikka (and Lovendor) are "big enough" to keep their own threads?
Aren't The Possible under NGP? I don't follow them so I wouldn't know.

Bitter&Sweet, Nakajima Takui, Shoutarou, those kind of artists should go here? I guess we'll get more before long, too.

Satoyama/Umi has ended. I don't think H!P or UF will have anymore activities related to it. So a UF thread is a good idea.

I think its been mentioned various times, but only the show has ended. They still have an event this March.

Tasaki never participated in the show and her new unit probably might not be related to SATOYAMA movement.

Asahi calls this certain group of Upfront artists that performed at the Countdown concert as "Team Music Festa"
http://www.musicfesta.jp/

i like that name better for this thread

---

Asahi says that their unit name is written as "Bitter & Sweet", but its easier to just call them "Bitter Sweet" (ビタースウィート)

Lol Moemi looks huge despite not being so, because Asahi is so tiny.
