Japan for the Uninvited

Japanese culture from a bemused foreign perspective

Dragon Ash

Dragon Ash, started in 1995 by school friends, headed a major shift in Japanese chart music. They are led by Kenji Furuya, the son of actor Ikko Furuya.

Their blend of melody, punishing punk riffs, and hip hop turntablism stood out from the crowd, earning them immediate chart success.

Impossible to categorise, their style changes with every record, which they now release on their own label – Mob Squad.
