This is not spam, I promise! Anyone else notice a lot of old, inactive communities getting taken over by evil spambots? I don't want that here!

Anyhow, I'm posting this because--years now--since The Babys have last been active, I am still getting peeps messaging me asking where to get The Babys music!

I must be the only person on these here internets who actually went and bought (gasp) the albums. And I am not willing to share (well... I did technically share quite a bit back in the day. And that day is over).

But I will walk you--step by step!--through how to buy from Amazon.co.jp!! It's not as daunting as it sounds! You need not know a speck of Japanese, I promise.

dare to make an international purchase???Collapse )

So, I also went looking for updates on the members' projects. Shunsuke is in a band called Mizutanikuro (or maybe it's a 'solo' act, I'm not really sure). Anyway, he's still playing the hollow body so it sounds arguably Babys-ish. He even does a pretty decent chilled version of Onegaisa DJ. Here's the YouTube channel where you can see some lives and two album-version songs: http://www.youtube.com/user/mizutanikuro

I heard somewhere that Haruna was in a band or project or whatever other than Guruguru but I can't remember where I saw it and what it was, but Rie is still with them and here is their website: http://guru2-wtr.syncl.jp/ and a cool video of theirs on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LlwbOBRwm5s

That's all I got for now! I am planning on doing a little more research once I have some time but if you've got the scoop, out with it!

Hoy everybody! I'm a french BABYS' fan who has created ac Facebook Group about the band we all love. The BABYS are not still actives but we can still love their songs, in when they were a band, and after!


See You!

Hey guys, this is the Russian group of the BABYS' fans - http://vkontakte.ru/club3885089 - probably looks pretty weird for you (the host website is a Russian analogue of Facebook or something like that). Well, the BABYS are extra-popular in Russia (mostly in Moscow and St. Petersburg) and the fan-club has 71 member up to now - WOW!


The few, the proud, eh?

I just wanted to thank you all guys, for all the inforamtion, songs, lyrics and translations, Shunske's letters translated - I used a lot of information from this community to enrich our humble resource. Thank you!

As I understand from last comments on the Babys official website (I think that was back in August?) - the band members stopped to play together for a while. I am afraid it looks like the end. Please tell me if I am wrong.

Anyway, even if they parted... we love their music. And we are grateful that they played together.

current song: The Fall of Troy - The Hol[ ]y Tape | Powered by Last.fm

Hey to anyone who is still watching this community!

How is life? Mine has very significantly gotten in the way of The Babys love. Not only that, The Babys themselves have been rather inactive as a group for a long time. Last I heard, Rie and Haruna formed another all-girl group called Guruguru and Shunsuke has been doing solo shows...

I also have to admit that I haven't been reading their blogs and subsequently my Japanese reading skillz have gone waaaaay out of practice. :<

Nevertheless I come bearing gifts! Well, none from me, personally, but some very nice things I have discovered by proxy!

This person on YouTube has posted a bunch of (low quality but still) awesome Babys live videos! There are also some solo-Shun and zoophilia videos. There are even some new songs in there that I have never heard before!!

This makes me reeeeally wish they would just release another single/album already! For pete's sake the last one came out in 2006!

<3 Leenie

2005/3 - 1st Mini Album "Shounen Knife" is released. Dr. Strangelove Nagata Susumu(?) produces.

2005/10 - 2nd Maxi Single "Alien" is released. Jacket design by Kobayashi Osamu.

2005/12 - 1st Album "Star Luster" is released. Used as background music in Yazawa Ai's original anime "Paradise Kiss.

2005/12 - 1st Maxi Single "The Babys" is re-released due to being sold out.

So.. go check out the new pictures!!

current song: I Can't Get a Date on LOGO

So, many of you may think you already KNOW the lyrics to Kikoenai Uta because they have already been posted on the internet in various places.



Haha, well whoever did them tried their best to do it by ear (I can tell) and Shun-chan does not enunciate very well, so I completely understand. However, the following are transcribed from print and checked by ear, so they are certainly more accurate! Spread the word!

Some updates on the site as well! Probably not much you haven't already seen though :3

Love ya!

Correspondance from Shunsuke!!!

current mood: excited
current song: Polysics - Mead O Clock

Holy crap you guys, I am literally shaking, that's how excited I am.

As you may know, The Babys site, http://www.thebabys.tv , has an email form if you want to write to them. Well, I did. And I got a response. I glanced at it earlier this morning, not going through and checking the kanji I didn't know but I went over it again just now and

it's from Shunsuke! Omg! Mizutani Shunsuke actually replied to my half-incoherent silly little email!! I am so freaking excited!!

So, in the mail I asked them to come to America some time and also how come "Shonen Knife" didn't have any lyrics in the booklets. Here is his response, which I will translate poorly!

Read more...Collapse )

AHHHH hahahaha. I'm far too excited about this. :) But he wants me to write back. I wonder if I should show him the website.... lol!

Later, friends! I will barely be able to concentrate in class!

BIG NEWS! Kind of!


...is our new website!

Thanks a ton to nisecal for going through the trouble of translating the biographies off the official page for all of us. They are such adorable snippets of writing. Give lots of love!

So. There is still work to be done. Such as:
•scanning some better images (once i get back to school)
•finishing up them lyrics
•adding a links page
•possibly some ParaKiss info

ohh what else? Should I also type out the lyrics in kanji while I'm at it?
Also tell me what you think of the look & feel. I'm on a 60-day trial on that web host (.Mac) so this will decide whether we stay there or look elsewhere.

Your thoughts! onegaiitashimasu....

PS, Here is a picture of Shunsuke's bday cake. I died from cuteness.

More lyrics! These were far and beyond easier than the last ones.


BED ni kawaru BEAT ni nosete
kimi no kuruma de asobi ni ikou yo
BED ni kawaru hidarite no oto wa
bouhatei kowashite oshiyoseteku nami no you

"sensei, bokura wa ROCK to ROLL sa"
futari ni hayaru kotoba ga itoshii
jiyuu ni yaru ni wa sorenari no rouman ga hitsuyou de
dakara KISS motomete mo omoshiroku mo nai no sa

ROMANTIC na mirai wo utau



genkini utatte ne!!
