TMGE a.k.a. Thee Michelle Gun Elephant (Kazuyuki Kuhara, Yusuke Chiba, and Futoshi Abe) was disbanded a couple of years ago, but does anyone know if any of these members are doing new music projects?

Are there any bands similar to TMGE worth recommending?

Thanks.

I like them which surprises me, since I was never really into that kind of music.

Anyway, the vocalist formed a new band a few years ago called ROSSO. I haven't listened to any of their music, but supposedly they sound the same as TMGE.

I haven't listened to them either, but you should look up Blankey Jet City. The bassist from that band is a member of ROSSO.

I never liked the band TMGE. However, if lokita's information is correct, then I have some ROSSO songs if you guys want to give it a listen. I'm not sure any of the song titles and etc since it was just a random CD a friend burnt me when I was getting into Japanese music. Any clarification would be great.

Oops. I guess you won't like my recent video uploads, then.

Thanks. Downloading now. I'm praying very hard that it's the Dirty Karat album.

It wouldn't matter if I didn't like the band or not, I put all of the videos up that are Eastern-Asian related. It's not that I think the band is bad, it's just not the type of music I enjoy.
