Fish On / Jet Love

Via their MySpace blog* Puffy announced that one of their news songs, Fish On, is the theme song for the science fiction comedy film Uchu de Ichiban Wagamama na Hoshi**. It is directed by TV Asahi producer and Papapapapuffy alumni, Hiroaki Ito. Fish On is a confab between Ami and Puffy’s bandmaster Kinoshita which I imagine is the usual Puffy arrangement of Ami doing the lyrics and Kinoshita doing the music. Ami promises Fish On to be Puffy like, which hopefully is a good sign for the next album.

I will see what I can do to track it down, but no promises. As the only time anyone has heard this was at two screenings at the Okinawa International Movie Festival. Those of us on this side of the Pacific may not be hearing it for a while.

Here is a teaser for Uchu de Ichiban Wagamama na Hoshi, and a very cool snippet because Ami and Yumi both appear at the 20 second mark!

Also in other news, Puffy's other new song Jet Love is slotted to be the theme song for the afternoon variety show DON!, which is a retooled version of Omoikkiri DON! which began on March 29th. Of the two new songs this one I imagine is the one we Puffy fans here in the states will hear first.

* honestly Puffy's blog is the only thing that keeps me on MySpace…
