It's a long shot but if any of you are living in Perth, Australia and are interested in starting up an Anime song theme/ Japanese pop and rock cover band, get in touch with me.

I am looking for a Drummer specifically but guitarists and keyboards are also welcome... seems it's pretty hard to find people who are musicians and into Anime/Japanese music.

There are a heap of songs that could be covered and below are a few examples of anime and bands.

Music related- Nana/K-On/Haruhi/Gravitation
Popular stuff- Death Note/Naruto/Bleach/Death Note/Full Metal Alchemist/Ouran High
Not-so popular and older stuff - Honey & Clover/Rurouni Kenshin/Cowboy Bebop
Generic Japanese pop- Do As Infinity/Brilliant Green/Spitz/Sakamoto Maaya
Generic Japanese rock- L'arc~en~ciel/Gackt/Miyavi/Luna Sea/Asian Kung Fu Generation

You can expect to perform at conventions, con-related events and Japanese/Asian cultural events.

Jesus, why are all the good bands who need drummers so far away. If you were on the other side of the world I would join, this sounds perfect. Sorry
