500 melhores discos de visual kei de todos os tempos

Publiquei esse material há alguns anos no Rate Your Music, mas, como ele tem circulado por aí, resolvi trazê-lo para o blog em versão traduzida.

A apresentadora de radio Akemi Oshima, famosa por suas aparições no tradicional HOT WAVE (TV Saitama) e envolvimento na produção dos quatro volumes da série Visual-kei DVD MAGAZINE, editou em livro, em julho de 2013, a primeira tentativa de passar a limpo a história do visual rock através da seleção de 500 álbuns lançados dos anos 80 até hoje. Oshima também é a empresária do grupo Ninjaman Japan e uma das principais patrocinadoras do V-ROCK FESTIVAL. Além dela, a seleção contou com outros nove participantes: Hiroko Yamamoto, Naoko Takeichi, Kazumi Kano, Tomonori Nagasawa, Yuki Sugie, Yuka Sugie, Kyosuke Tsuchiya, Rie Makino e Miho Ito.

É importante ter em mente o nome dos envolvidos antes de começar e, especialmente, discutir essa lista. A meu ver, o caráter predominante mainstream, que ignora inúmeros lançamentos independentes importantes, pode ser explicado pelo time envolvido na organização.

Enfim, como toda lista de música, essa provavelmente vai render horas e horas de discussão. É definitivamente muito material para dar conta, das bandas glam que tocavam heavy metal tradicional e as darks influenciadas pela cena “positive punk” britânica (como definiu o jornalista Richard North na edição de fevereiro de 2013 da NME em artigo sobre o Bauhaus e Theatre of Hate) aos grupos que parecem extraídos direto de uma vitrine de loja de Harajuku dos dias de hoje. Mesmo que a lista não seja perfeita ou completa, a senhora Oshima merece os parabéns por agitar as coisas e começar essa discussão do zero. Como todo mundo interessado em escavar a história da música japonesa deve saber a esse ponto, a indústria local não é afeita às listas de melhores discos.

O livro também apresenta uma mesa redonda sobre a evolução da cena com Chisato (Penicillin), Keiyuu (Kra) e Subaru (Royz), cronologia de eventos, artigos sobre moda e shows, uma introdução aos grupos ocidentais influenciados pelas bandas japonesas e muito mais.

    Artigo muito interessante pois é um livro a qual se encontra pouquíssima informação sobre ele na web e é de extrema importância para o rock japonês.
    Gostaria de saber mais sobre esse outro livro que conta a história do estilo visual no jrock, porém esse é ainda mais underground: ヴィジュアル系の時代―ロック・化粧・ジェンダー

    • Vinícius Damazio

      Engraçado você citar esse livro, porque foi uma das primeiras publicações sobre visual kei que eu vi, quando era bem novo, na casa de uma amiga. O título em romaji é “Visual Kei no Jidai – Rokku, Keshō, Jendā” (algo como “No tempo do Visual Kei – Rock, Maquiagem, Gênero”).

      Na época, idos dos anos 2000, era um lançamento de uma editora com vários outros livrinhos numa pegada de musicologia ou sociologia da música. Ela também tinha um outro livro sobre rock em geral com a mesma arte de capa.

      Como não sabia um ai de japonês e se passaram muitos anos, tudo o que lembro são detalhes vagos que essa amiga comentou. Era um livro meio defasado, muito acadêmico e que praticamente só tratava da carreira do X. Acho que ela falou algo da pesquisa ser fraca e que tinham até algumas coisas que eram pura ficção hahaha.

      Se você quiser arriscar, talvez valha a pena porque provavelmente é um livro fácil de encontrar barato. Deve valer mais como documento do que leitura informativa sobre visual kei.

      Abraço!
