It struck me recently that my three favourite J-bands are Maximum The Hormone, Nightmare and Abingdon Boys School (Ajikan are fourth), and I haven’t really blogged much of their stuff, comparatively. So, here’s an ABS song for you all.
Darker Than Black -Kuro no Keiyakusha- was a good series. It had special powers, action, mystery, and there was a real sense of gratification in the depth of the mythos laid out during the series. Anywho, ‘Howling’, the first opening was cool, and made me interested in the thing to begin with.
Oh, did I mention I love Abingdon Boys School? They’ve got T.M. Revolution as their lead singer AND have the guitarist from WANDS, who did the ending theme for the Toei Yu-Gi-Oh! series. That’s a perfect amount of boxes checked for me.
