Attention please! We are looking for a new writer!

電波の世界 started in December 2007 and while our passion for the genre has only increased over the years, it's been difficult to find time for new articles and features. That's why we (denpanosekai and mandichan) are looking for an enthusiastic new writer! Here are some typical articles and tasks:

※ album previews and reviews
※ event reports (comiket, M3, live, etc.)
※ artist spotlights and interviews
※ denpa watchlist renewal
※ a new theme would be nice!

MOSAIC.WAV 1st ライブ, new album?

One thing to note about denpa bands (make that JPop artists in general) is that they just don't seem to tour or play shows that often. I don't know if it's a Japanese thing or if there's not that much demand for live events. Case in point, MOSAIC.WAV played their first live gig last month since their formation in 2003. Before that, they played some festivals and made store appearances but never performed more than 3-4 songs each time. Even though it's been a month since the Tokyo concert, not much information can be found online. But I found a review that features a lot of great pictures; better than those on the official live info list anyway. If you can't read Japanese, don't worry: you're not missing out. The reviewer mostly discusses which songs were played and what outfits miiko and friends were wearing. *hint hint* she cycled through various maid outfits.

denpa usually features the pretentious keytar

But wait... what's that little nugget of information hidden in the middle of the page? Apparently, it was announced that a new album is set to be released in March 2008, from Lantis Records! Pretty hot news, and a quick turnaround time from a band that just released a full-length in late August 2007...
