JapanFiles brings the SKA with Hoi Festa and All Japan Goith

January 28, 2009 - JapanFiles.com debuts two new Japanese ska bands on its website this week - All Japan Goith and Hoi Festa!

High-energy party band All Japan Goith was hand-picked by Orange Range to join them on their label Spice Records, then opened for Orange Range on a national tour of Japan. The four releases by All Japan Goith are accompanied by two more releases under their former artist name, SKA Shippe.

Hoi Festa is best known to anime fans for their opening theme for "Powerpuff Girls Z."

For Japanese ska fans who just can't get enough, Asakusa Jinta just announced their return to SXSW for the 2009 Japan Nite show! Their debut CD "SKY Zero" is also on JapanFiles.com.

All Japan Goith
All Japan Goith (SKA Shippe) was formed in 2001 for a school event, then began performing local live concerts. Orange Range liked their performance and brought them to their label Spice Records. In 2002, they released their first album "We are SKA Shippe." They supported Orange Range's Japan concert tour, joined SummerSonic, and released their second album "Skashitamin AG" in 2004. After the Peaceful Love Rock Festival in Okinawa, they changed their name to All Japan Goith..

Hoi Festa
Formed in 2003, all the members of Hoi Festa came from different cities, were born in different years, and are both tall and short. With lyrics written by vocalist Achi, bass player Minami does double-duty on lyrics and music with additional musical help from keyboardist Marcy. Hoi Festa is gaining popularity in Japan for their female-focused lyrics and powerful live concerts.

Their song "Jig the Upper" was featured as one of the opening themes for "Powerpuff Girls Z" in Japan.

All Japan Goith and Hoi Festa appear on JapanFiles.com by arrangement with Spice Records.
