Really fantastic ability she had- synchronize tempo of drumbeats with controlling her vocal at the same time (the fact that not everyone could do it, because when you hit the drum, your voice kind of vibrate too, she able to beat the drums with such delicate, powerful motion yet maintaining a sweet background vocal)



Name : Takayo Ookoshi (Ex-Leader, Ex-Guitar)

Didn't know much about her, she gave me the feeling that she's a cool, hard-rock lady

another rabbit!bunny teeth she had,left me that impression, really cute, and sweet voice too, one of the best vocal in the band i would say.




Man I’m totally in love with this band –ZONE
Those know me, will know that once kai become fanatic about a thing, he will go dig up information about them. True enough I did, so here a little of their history .

Basically this group was introduced to the crowds with a new genre in music history, as “bandoru” or otherwise bandol ( a combination of band and idol, dance and play their own instrument)

Initially, ZONE started off with TAKAYO with seven other members in 1997,thereafter reduced to six and finally four (TAKAYO, MIYU, MIZUHO and MAIKO.) On 1999/12/18, ZONE’s indies single “Believe in Love” was released. Thereafter they quickly rose to fame, the four girls learned to play their own instruments to complement their singing and dancing. 2003, TAKAYO left the band to focus on her studies, with TOMOKO replacing her, believed to be 1 of the original 8.Maybe not gonna talk much about their specific albums etc.

Sad to say 2005 they announced their disband, once 3 of them were graduating from High School. On April 1st, 2005, the 4 members of ZONE held their final tour, the Spring Tour 2005. Sadly, it wasn’t an April Fool’s joke. At the end of the concert, ZONE said farewell to all their fans as well as the rest of the world with a very emotional “secret base ~Kimi ga Kureta Mono~”.


When I knew this fact, I was really say, and get emotional with their performance. All in all they left an important page in the history of J-POP!

MAKIO now lead a band call MARIA

Imagine back 2000, when I was like 12 yrs of age, about the same as theirs, while me stuck home preparing for PSLE, they had already released an album, played their own instruments! Rocking the stadium, touching people’s soul with hearts-warming music. I mean what a good and extraordinary childhood they must have had. When I’m having O level, they still busy releasing album, when they made their final tour, I’m stuck with poly education! What life I had compared to theirs. Education is not about everything, engaging in other showroom to showcase one’s talent is an life-experience too! (@__@, crapping again!)

ladies and gentlemen may i present to you
Zone- Secret Base [Final Live-Subbed]
**********pls pause the playlist at bottom of page************
enjoy~(sure you will)



Take care
kai
