Please help! I'm in an awful fix! I can't decide if Japanese technopop girl group Perfume is absolute dreck or absolute genius!

They sure are cute as a jar full of buttons, though. I love it when they sing the phrases "Linear Motor Girl" and "Sweet Doughnuts" and "Chocolate Disco" in English. And the videos are hallucinatory.

Sounds like pretty standard J-Pop based on Anime music & Techno-Pop. Have you heard their hit "Polyrhythm"?

Freddie--thanks for the pointer. Found Polyrhythm okay, but not as much fun as the others.

GGNYC--what can I say? I was fascinated by them!

@Robb, much gooder!

@Paul, really? I thought I was the DOM around here chasing after teeny boppers.

@GGNYC: Sickem Girl!

Robb--pretty swell video from MMS. But one of the things that attracted me to Perfume was the quasi-cyberpunk nature of their videos and music. MMS one seemed almost country-western, in a weird Japanese way.

I noticed yesterday that the girls of Perfume played the girls of MMS at ping-pong on a Japanese TV show....

You are fascinated Paul! 😉

Expat, I had to think for a minute about what you meant, my first thought was Dominant. :lol:

I am simultaneously intrigued, repulsed, awed and amused. Same predicament. Good stuff or pure fluff. Who knows. I suppose beauty is in the eye (or ear) of the beholder (or be-hear-er)
