Hoo boy. This week’s episode is tasty.
Some more savvy internet users may vaguely recognise the song ‘Plastic Love’ by Mariya Takeuchi. It’s a song that literally millions of people have heard due to the vast amount of memes that popped up in 2017 after a YouTube user used the the song in one of their videos.
Apparently though, that’s not what led Weaver into the arms of the strange 80s J-Pop genre of City Pop. To say that anyone here actually thinks this album is good would be an outright lie, but Weaver brings this to the table to talk about this weird genre, and its even more baffling resurgence.
We’re always keen to expand the number of genres we cover on this show, but does that mean this record will get a place in our discography as a result of this?
