I think its going to be impossible to find out where the term Visual Kei came from.
In Japanese, people can make up words and combine words just like people always do in english, nd if they catch on, they catch on.. who knows who was the first to put visual and kei together. it wouldnt surprise me if a lot of people came up with it on their own.

That's why the first question I made was when first people had listened to the term.

When I started using the internet (1999~) I only heard "visual" and "visual shock". Silly things like "dude, X, the creators of Visual Shock!". Visual Kei stuck later, but who knows the situation in Japan.

The discussion about attitude and feeling is really fascinating. There are things that make music unique, like composition, playing, voice, instruments, all technical sides. And there are things that make it rock your soul out, like feeling and attitude, this is the interpretation of the artist.

The attitude of the musician towards life, and the feeling they give to the music while they play, will determine more about a band than the label it's tagged as. Punk may classify as both an ideology as a music genre, it has the anarchy attitude and the dissonant, loud, feeling, besides the loud notes. That's why I can hear Joaquin Sabina, a trova singer from Spain, and after hearing a very irreverent song I can say "haha, damn punk".

Neither music or ideology is shared in Visual Kei, Demon Kogure's ideology is nothing like Yoshiki's, they only used to wear the same make-up and hair, hahaha.

I guess most of the people here have seen this interview. It reveals some interesting stuff about Visual Kei market. I just read it, and I think it's a little bit exaggerated, but we all know music industry is horrible sometimes. I don't know anything else about this interview, but is information I was somehow imagining, so .. not very surprised, and I realy don't care that much about it.

It's time to update the article too.

There are a few things I need to update:
- Clarify that KISS didn't get their style from Kabuki, it was mere coincidence. Simmons said that when they first got to Japan, they noticed it.
- Quote a new Yoshiki interview where he talks about Visual Kei.
- Quote a new Sugizo interview where he talks bout J-Rock.
- Re-write some parts talking about identity and sense of belonging.
- Stick the article into the new X website template, hehe.

These are notes for myself in the future. rueda.gif

Lo siento mucho si este tema estaba muy viejo como para revivirlo, pero quería decir que hace mucho tiempo leí tu artículo acerca de los verdaderos orígenes del Visual y felicitarte: difícilmente en otro lado he visto infirmación tan completa acerca de la historia de este estilo (musical y estético) y las verdades que hay detrás, salvo por la entrevista a "Satoh-san" y la serie de artículos de "La Globalización del Visual Kei" que publicó JaME hace algunos meses:
