THE DEAD P☆P STARS

DPS

 THE DEAD P☆P STARS was formed in 1992 by drummer Kenzi (ex-Kamaitachi and ∀NTI-FEMINISM) Links to ∀NTI FEMINISM below. Vocalist Aki has been with the band since 1992. Hideto guitar joined 2003 and Ruiji on bass came onboard 2007. The latest member is “Kenpa” (Kentaro) Guitar since 2010.

This was the second gig in a short period PSW went to see them. Just a week earlier (June 13th) they performed at the same live as AURA  at Shinjuku Birth. Hard to say which live was the better, at Birth it was a very FUN night and the audience was really on fire. Here at Rockmaykan I think they sounded tighter though.

They may look very tidy, but don’t let this photo fool you. They go wild as their show progresses, and there’s nothing calm about these guys; neither on, nor off stage!

They are ROCK … they breathe rock and they give you rock on stage! They might no longer be Visual Kei but one can hear their sound roots . Their set list is rather varying but over all it’s all very engaging.

 Kenpa, guitar, is more than a guitarist… he is an entertainer on stage, and a charismatic one as such. With his very own personal style and fashion, he always puts on a show.
Off stage he is equally entertaining and fun. Never a dull moment.
He is also a member of  ザ・ビールス in which he also is Vocalist.

Kenzi, the founder of  THE DEAD P☆P STARS, on drums.
The creator of ∀NTI FEMINISM 
Should probably have a blog soon just about him and his projects….
The PSW went to see ∀NTI FEMINISM last month at Wild Side Tokyo, and there is a blog and a video here:

and for those who don’t mind the self-inflicting damage he does to himself another video below.

 If I were to describe Kenzi with one word it would be:  Energy.  Pure energy.
You can see in his eyes that his mind is constantly in energetic “ON” mode.
