Hey there, had a student (Japanese college exchange program) introduce me to this band recently. They are just really good! Upbeat, talented, fun.

It seems they have been around for quite some time. Anyone heard of The Pillows before?

Well hope you like the cool sound!

So the Monkees had a baby with the foo fighters and raised it in Japan.

The Pillows did the music for the anime Furi Kuri aka FLCL.

en.wikipedia.org...

They had some good songs in the anime.

The song "I Think I can" was my favorite.



Here's episode 1 of the anime.

Also the band name "The Pillows" has to be one of the most original and cool names ever.

Worth watching the anime just for the soundtrack.

but it's short and very quirky. Only like 6 episodes i think.

have fun.

You're right, it's a great name!

I thought the same when my student told me to check them out.

I've been a fan since something like... 2005 I think? And yes, it's because FLCL is one of the craziest, coolest shows I've ever seen.
One of the greatest soundtracks imo.

I've always loved FLCL.

There are two more new seasons coming for this year and next year.

Good stuff.

The sound track is great for that show. Spot on.

Are The Pillows doing the soundtrack for those too? Honestly, I haven't really been able to see it since it was on Adult Swim all those long years ago, so idk if things have changed... My fiancee and I have been on an anime kick for months and that's one I definitely wanna introduce to him.

That is something I can't find info on. Yet.

But it's still coming back! And whatever soundtrack they use will most likely be rad.

Thanks for the great info! Looks like I'll be watching as well.

I believe the director of that first video is the same as the one who made the video below of the French group Rita Mitsouko.

You can clearly see the similarities in the style, presentation, costumes and furnishings.

But it's all very cool, the both of them.


Rita Mitsouko
