Godzilla toys       Figures       Ultraman

And while we’re reflecting on the great gimmick of an all girl group traveling around on bicycles, what other ideas can our burgeoning community here at n10ah come up with for future music groups yet unborn? 

One that occurred to me recently is a bit tongue and cheek but should certainly get the discussion started. 

The idea would be to have a group dressed up like characters from a Japanese monster movie.

Just think. They could call the group Kaiju, the term for the Japanese giant monster movie genre, and little kids everywhere could spend time on the Internet trying to figure out the origin of the name.

There might be a bit of a problem with copyright and trademark infringement, but it seems to me that imaginary characters could be used to get around the issue, or a “fair use” argument could be made saying use of the characters constitute a parody.

Anyway, I haven’t quite figured out what kind of music the group would play, but I think that’s kind of secondary in any case.

The live shows would be fantastic.  I may act on this one if someone else doesn’t beat me to it.

 Let’s have some other ideas and see if we can’t influence the next wave of independent artists looking for the next big thing.

No, the vehicle that we hope will be the Internet’s premier source for independent music is not yet a piece of history and rumors of the site’s demise have been greatly exaggerated.


Though after two weeks’ hiatus as I did some rethinking of this blog’s purpose and aims it may have seemed that way, n10ah is back rising like some kind of ghoulish specter from an unmarked grave!


Well…maybe not like that exactly, but we’re back anyway.


In fact, after some planning and rearranging some of the other sites I am managing, I’m hoping this on-line music magazine/network will be part of something even BIGGER and BETTER.


In the coming weeks we’ll be laying down some ground rules that I think are clearly needed, straightening out some misconceptions and most importantly discovering some great independent music.


For now, check out the slightly misogynistic (or is it just satire you decide!) Toby Joe Turner with “The Girlfriend Song” and check out Toby’s MySpace site (which takes like an hour and a half to load but is worth the look) here.
