There is a new place for all things Abikyokan:
Please go there from now for all our live and DJ news, music, videos, photos and more!
This blog will be left here with all its terror and hubris as a chilling warning to future generations.

Merry Holidays all! We, the AbiLads, sincerely wish for your naughty happiness this festive season and a wonderful and hopefully far less dramatic 2012!
This year, as our present to you, we offer a brand new song.
Listen to and download Our Chilly Season on our SoundCloud page.
We hope you like its wintry grooves as much as we do, and here's to more music, more friends and more love in the New Year.
Peace xoxoxo Abikyokan

Remember, remember the 5th of November...as Tokyo's premier avant-pop combo will be making a rare and incendiary appearance at the latest Farm Party!
The boys will be playing their odd-rocks, and Craig and Grant will be DJing spellbinding sine waves, at the much-awaited return of Tokyo Gig Guide’s superb event, now in its seventh episode and at a new venue, Koenji Dynamo, on November 5th, two thousand und 11.
The AbiLads are very much looking forward to playing with our east Tokyo neighbours Living Astro again, and with Jebiotto! and Fancy Numnum for the first time. In addition, AbiNation honorary member and ace DJ Timebred will be spinning some molten mp3s.
It’s only 500 yen, and there’ll be a lot of excellaire music and sexy humans in one small room – how can you resist such a deal?
Get all the info here, and see you there!
The long wait is over! Abikyokan's brand new single, the second in the Star Panic series, is now available for free download from our Bandcamp site.
Plus, check out the remarkable video by Craig!

AbiNation! We trust you are fine. We're ace, thanks.
The first single from our new project Star Panic, Fine Girl, is available to download for a limited time from our Bandcamp now! Head on over there and let us know what you think.
Craig has also made a remarkable video...
Each track will be recorded and released this way, with a video on our Youtube channel and a limited free mp3 download.
After all are released, a compilation will be available for a negligible fee, and pop history will quake in fear, or not.
We love you bye! xoxoxo
