school food punishment is a relatively new band that I just discovered recently (last month actually), though they original formed in Oct. of ’04. The sound of the band is something truly unique, and you’d have to hear it to believe that. I would describe is as “electronica fusion rock”.

Hailing from Tokyo and commonly referred to as “sfp” for short, they are:

  • Uchimura Yumi (Vocals, Guitar)
  • Ueda Atsushi (Bass)
  • Hasuo Masayuki (Keyboard)
  • Hidai Osamu (Drums)

The band fought to gain recognition in their early days  and, starting in 2007, released three mini-albums before being signed with Sony’s Epic Records in early 2009. Since then they’ve dropped three really good singles. The first of which, futuristic imagination, was used as an ending theme for the popular anime series Eden of the East, which gave the band their final push into the bright spotlight of fame. (Isn’t that usually how it goes with Sony?)

One of the coolest things about the band is their PV’s (Promotional or Music Videos) and album artworks- both or which are quite artistic and off the norm. Let’s hope they keep up this trend! I wouldn’t doubt a debut album dropping by year’s end. Can’t wait!

    Wow thx! Yeah, I kinda just stumbled upon sfp and then it was RABU. hahahaha. I actually found them from a post on Lex and his friends’ random blog.

    Their singles under avex have been solid. Eventually, I’m going to go back and listen to their first three albums. :)

    I’ve added you. Thx for posting! :D
