The guitarist and drummer of the Clicks, the great Japanese girl rock trio that split up earlier this month, have decided to form a new group called--newbie! They haven't made any songs though. Meanwhile, the bassist, Chiharu, says she will also be in a new band, but she will make a formal announcement on it next year. All of this info is from the Clicks' BBS.
I don't know what kind of intra-band drama led to two girls starting one band and the third girl getting into another, and I'm not sure I want to know, but it's good to hear they will all stay active in the music scene. (By the way, you can now sample all of the Clicks' energetic, straightforward rock songs on JapanFiles.com, here, and you can buy the song downloads too. Also check out Mix Market, another good K.O.G.A. Records band, while you are there.)
