Woo-hoo! Korindie has gone international! International like small local airport that has one charter flight a year to Havana sort of international, but two countries is indeed greater than one, and here we are, sweet internationality.

DISCLOSURE: We thought about Japindie for a while…but we decided to go with Korindie Japan. I know, it’s confusing. Just work with me on this one okay? We can’t be like ‘ndie-ing every country we visit. (Yes, there will be more countries!)

Right, so Korindie went to Japan last weekend, and we caught up with the wonderful Qu, who were playing along with Nice Legs in Kyoto.


Okay, so first impressions. The lead vocalist/beatboxer, dresses like a fucking Japanese rock god. Dude is on point with the style. I don’t got a shot of his footwear, but he was rocking those Japanese toed socks that matched his yukata/pantsuit awesomeness.

On. Point.

マツヤマシンヤ – Bass

The second thing about Qu is hair. They got the hair game down. You got long straight hair, long curly hair, and short hair. The band is perfectly hair-balanced. It’s like when you’re playing Ice Hockey (not to be confused with ice hockey), and you pick two normal dudes, the big slow dude, and the small fast dude, for perfect team balance. They’re Japanese. They’ve thought this thing through.

yone – Guitar

And of course there’s music. But we don’t talk about music at Korindie. If we were to talk about music, we’d say it was refreshing to hear beatboxing instead of straight vocals all the time. But we’re not going to say that, because we don’t talk about music. We’d also say some other things with actual music terms. That is also not happening.

GINE – Beatbox and Vocals

Also, the drummer is on point, with or without the beatboxing, on point. He drummed with Nice Legs a bit after his set. Looked like he was going to collapse, but did it up proper for like two whole sets. And then we got drunk. It was great.

みさきまさゆき- Drums

Aight, so basically, we need to find a way to get these guys to come to Korea. They need to come to Korea. Dudes, 是非、韓国に来てください。ベール買ってあげる。

So cool.
