Tokyo Jihen (the Tokyo Incident) have announced that they will disband. This is good news because it means that vocalist Shiina Ringo will be free to pursue her infinitely more exciting solo career. Although the band had its moments, and undoubed visual flair, it was frustrating to see one of the great stylists of Japanese music floundering behind a wall of bog-standard J-rock.
Sometimes a little bit of ego does not go astray. The Tokyo Incidents are dead, long live the queen!
She looks amazing here.
