BUCK-TICK Still Topping J-rock Scene After 26 Years

  Today, the Japanese Oricon charts were released for Week 13 of 2010. At first glance, the chart looks pretty average, with DBSK in the number one spot and many popular pop artists scattered throughout. However, spot number 7 is a pleasant surprise.

  BUCK-TICK's newest single, "Dokudanjou Beauty" was released this past week, and hit number seven on the Oricon charts, selling 13,880 units. The single contains two other tracks, "Voo Doo" and a live version of "Tenshi wa Dare da". The single also contains a DVD with live footage from a performance at Zepp Tokyo recorded in November 2009.

   BUCK-TICK first formed under the name Hinan Go-Go in 1984. After a slight member change, they changed their name to BUCK-TICK, and have remained in the same lineup since. Every member also has at least one side project, and the band has released several albums and dozens of singles, and they show no sign of stopping. BUCK-TICK is best known for their 1993 song "Dress" which was used as the opening theme to the Anime Trinity Blood.
