Cover album "Memories ~Japanese Masterpieces~" hits stores March 18
51-year-old manga artist Atsushi Kamijo, who is best known for his rock band-themed manga in the mid-1980s, TO-Y, draws a CD jacket illustration for the limited edition of three-member visual-kei band PENICILLIN's upcoming cover album "Memories ~Japanese Masterpieces~." The band name was taken from a fictional punk rock band in the manga, Penicillin Shock.
It is their first cover album and contains 10 non-rock songs, such as Sayuri Ishikawa's popular enka song "Amagi Goe" and idol singer Akina Nakamori's two hit songs in 1984, "Kazari Ja Nai no yo Namida wa" and "Kita Wing." It is scheduled to be released in Japan on March 18. Check the jacket artworks and a preview video for the album below.
