[Interview] GASHUKIKO Volume 14 — UNNEVER END

Bursting into the scene with a surprise attack TRA TRA TRA will set out on their one-man tour in November. With their 2nd one-man at Shibuya REX as the tour final, and a goal to surpass their first one-man, they continue their onslaught of surprise attacks. We asked the band some simple questions… From their […]

UNNEVER END

TRA TRA TRA announced their first full album, [bb] -beautiful blasphemy-, to be released on March 15, 2017! They’ve also updated their homepage (http://tratratra.jp/) with their new look and album information!

There will also be a first album release/Hiroki birthday event on March 22, 2017!

Tra hasn’t announced any live dates other than 11/30 @ Ikebukuro Black Hole and 2/23 @ HOLIDAY SHINJUKU. I’m assuming they’ll be busy working on their album for the next couple of months. Based on the new song, UNCHAIN, that they played at their 2nd one-man, I have high hopes for this album!!

Unmanly Summer Time: Omi
2016/09/01 12:27

It’s September. The season when your appetite gets out of control. I’m Omi, the guy who eats with gusto.

The last week of August. With the production of KAMIKAZE done, I was able to enjoy summer a little.

I went to the beach with Amy Dolly. Got a little tan. Had the summer feeling. My iPod was stolen(?) and I had a lot of fun. It’s really important for all living things to gain energy from nature.

As for me, I love American comics. I watched X-Men: Apocalypse intensely with the movie tix I got as a gift. It was awesome. I could see it over and over again. The human race created something really amazing for it to be able to make people this excited on any given day. Yay for movies!!

On a completely different topic, I recently took this test for distinguishing and naming colors that look similar to each other. Sorry I don’t really remember the name of the test. There was a kind of gradation bar thing with some colors that were barely different from each other and you had to answer what color it was. There were actually close to 50 different colors. It was pretty tough. I was able to tell the difference between more than 40 colors and got a high score, but apparently that’s pretty rare among boys.

Why are girls able to tell the difference between colors better than boys? Apparently, it’s cos girls liking things like Christmas lights and stuff is just part of their biological makeup.

In other words, I’m pretty close to being a girl.

Gross!!

Next up: Red Yakisoba.

See ya

The Japanese title of this blog is 女々しくてサマータイム:オミ
女々しい literally means “effeminate.” There’s also a Golden Bomber song called 女々しくて, which Omi may or may not be referring to here.

Nothing will change in how we do things

With our attack force, “We Have Had a Successful Surprise Attack” we are pushing forward.

 

―With their huge success at the live they hosted on July 22nd, we have TRA TRA TRA with us today! Bassist Mamoto withdrew from the band at that same show, and you announced that you would continue on with only three of the members. Will there be any changes in the band’s concept moving forward?

Omi: After many meetings, we ended up with only three members, but “after the rain comes fair weather” as they say, and a strange strength in unity was born. I feel like our gigs have become more solid in an aggressive way. We’re a lot more extreme than we used to be.

Ryo: We’re definitely going to push our concept stronger than before so look foward to it.

Good evening. It’s Omi, the guy who wants to wear the flashiest underwear in the world.

I’ve been eating a lot of noodles this week. I make somen noodles at home, eat ramen or tsukemen when I go out, they’re starting to look like shoelaces.

Actually, I was just eating tsukemen before this. At that tsukemen shop, they yell “iyoisho!” in a loud voice when the noodles are done boiling. Every single employee. It’s pretty powerful.

I think it’s a similar concept to the singing at Cold Stones.* They sing songs like “heigh-ho” and other Disney-ish songs so that customers standing in line can enjoy themselves. Every single employee.  Personally, I just want them to stop, but the concept of making the customers have fun is nice so it makes me think.

No matter what it is, it’s important to put life into it. Sometimes we also do a kind of cheer before a live, but it feels like it’s missing something so I wanna think of a cheer that flows better.

Well then, tomorrow we have a live at Ikebukuro Black Hole! We’ll do our best!

The next blog will be Red Mop.
See ya.

[Lyrics] TRA TRA TRA – メルト (Melt)

Artist: TRA TRA TRA
Single: メルト/We-KID
Lyrics: Ryo


Bound intimately by the sensation of these trembling hands
Crushed by solitude, I let out a laugh and wake up!
Good night, self

Sweet, sweet temptation
You see, idiots never learn
They fall, a wild frenzy into the night
Forced to dance the dance, into that trap

I can make it! mid night party

Destroy everything
Melted by those hands
Just over there
I laugh at the me that was

Exchange the fun of this night for my left arm
I don’t want to see any of that crap anymore
Just make it all disappear

The sweet, sweet cry of your voice
I want to gain that heat
Taint me more
I don’t care if it’s all a lie

I can make it! mid night party

Until the very end
Fake it, even if it’s just for show
Those tricks
Are improving more and more

let me bounce, let me bounce, forget everything
I pretend I could get away and laugh
When there’s really nothing there, I put a lid on it
Plus, I’m used to losing everything
I swore that there was no love,
but even so, if I catch a glimpse of it, I search for it
In reality this is where I cried
Just for now, I want to drown in this night

I don’t believe anyone or anything
Even though the solitude goes on filling the gaps
On these lonely nights
I want to sleep being loved by you

Original Lyrics:

震えだすこの手の感覚に心地よく締め付けられて
孤独に潰され笑い出す 目が覚めた!僕よ、おやすみ

甘い甘い誘惑に
バカの一つ覚えでさ
落ちる夜に乱れ狂う
踊らされたそこは罠

I can make it! mid night party

壊れていく
その手の中で溶かして
すぐそこには
あいつが笑う僕がいた

この夜に落ちる喜びと引き換えに与える左手
くだらない何も見たくない どうせなら今すぐ消して

甘い甘い声で鳴き
熱を帯びたそれが欲しい
もっと私を汚して
全部嘘でかまわない

I can make it! mid night party

どこまでも
気休めにでも騙して
駆け引きは
だいぶましにこなせてきた

let me bounce 飛ばせ すべてを忘れて
逃げれたフリして笑う
どうせここには何も無いと塞ぎ、そして
失うことになれてった
愛なんてどこにもないと誓った、それでも気がつけば探してしまうから
本当はここで泣いていた
今だけはこの夜に溺れていたいから

誰も何も信じない
孤独が隙間埋めていく
それでも寂しい夜は
あなたに愛され眠りたい
