“The most important thing is a message. Of course, lyrics are important, but music including instruments, special effects, and beats are also important essences in expressing messages. We don’t need to express it in any words, but we’re trying to express our messages in music making.” – Toshiyuki Kishi
Once upon a time a boys school in Oxfordshire, England discovered that their name had become famous overseas, not only for the quality of their education, but also for the Japanese rock band that took their name as their own. Abingdon boys school (a.b.s.) is fronted by the great Takanori Nishikawa of TM Revolution fame. Begun in 2005, the group achieved success with a series of popular singles released through Sony Music and their first self-titled album in 2007.
Their latest single, “Kimi no Uta,” was released on August 26 and provides the theme song to the anime show “Tokyo Magnitude 8.0.” They are releasing a 13 track album in Europe entitled “Teaching Materials” to coincide with a European tour beginning November 3, which will fittingly include a show in England.
On October 22, 2009 Takanori Nishikawa and the members of a.b.s. were kind enough to give an interview to J-Pop World. abingdon boys school Interview
