posted on by Egan Loo

December 12, 2008 - Nagoya's pop/rock favorites Budo Grape return to with a new EP "Five Hits and Dust. " - release date: December 17!

FOCUS ON LIVE SOUND Band leader & guitarist Nagai says they wrote these five new tracks to focus more on capturing the energy of their live sound, especially after seeing the response of American audiences during their USA tour in June 2008.

As an added extra for the die-hard Budo Grape fans, the band has included two of their 2001 demo tracks (the "dust" of the title) featuring vocals by 18-year-old Quminco!

Track list: 1. Otome no Price 3'23 2. Otome Kaikisen 3'45 3. Rush Hour 2'09 4. Hore Hore 3'45 5. Doki Doki Wireless Life 3'13 6. Three-rotation Kiss (2001 demo) 2'03 7. Penki Nuritate No.1 (2001 demo) 3'13

RADIO PREVIEW JapanFiles Radio will preview the whole "Five Hits and Dust" CD in its entirety on its weekly Budo Grape spotlight - Sunday, Dec. 14 at 7:00 PM Pacific. Go to for more details.

BUDO GRAPE CD AND PHOTO BOOK Speaking of the USA tour, has added two new Budo Grape items to the store.

The compilation CD "JUICE!" sold out during their debut American tour of Dallas (A-Kon 2008), San Antonio (Sam's Burger Joint), and New York (Knitting Factory). This 13 track CD features the band's favorite songs from their first four albums, including "Rescue, Rescue" "Botan wo Oshinaose" and "Nogashita Chu!"

The "JUICE!" CD also includes special bonus track "FNT" -- the famous show-stopper finale song from their live shows! The track's lyrics are too outrageous to sell in Japan ("Fun Nyo Tun" means "Crap Piss Spit"), so it's a USA exclusive!

The store is also carrying a limited edition 192-page "Budo Grape USA" photo book featuring performance and behind-the-scenes photos from the tour, plus two English-language interviews with the band.
