Alphanumeric: Drivin' Now

J: Drivin' Now


You can't get more succinct (or any harder to Google) than using a single English letter as an artist name. J is the bassist for J-Rock band Luna Sea, a band I will miss seeing by one week during my upcoming trip to Japan. (Not that I had a snowball's chance in hell of getting tickets—Saitama Arena, which seats about 37,000, sold out in five minutes for this charity concert.) As is the way of many Japanese bands, the members of Luna Sea wander off into other group and solo releases without a lot of drama. J released this album, Unstoppable Drive in 2002 during Luna Sea's longest hiatus. It's pretty straightforward hard rock, and you'll enjoy it if you like yours bass-heavy like I sometimes do.
