This is the thread where I post MVs and pics from Wednesday Campanella and Kom_i

You can either ignore it or learn to love it there are other options, but those two are the most popular

Kom_i is the lead vocalist of the group and front woman of Wednesday Campanella, but equally important are Kenmochi Hidefumi who produces the music and Dir.F who handles much of their stunning visuals.

This is probably my favorite video from them, though that can change on a whim. The visuals are so striking in this one though, especially the final shot of her looking towards the horizon with and eagle.

In this one Kom_i brings us a gift from the underworld, gleeful and unhinged in the maze of the overworld. She ends the song by setting alight that gift to serve as a beacon for those who choose to see it in these seemingly hard times.

Their live shows are said to upstage most other acts on whatever festivals they're invited to, though the spirit of it all is more joyful and spontaneous than competitive.

This video brings an odd feeling of joy and foreboding. Violence undercutting what would be a very polished marketable image otherwise.

The song of Wednesday Campanella are formulated to produce a different type of feeling. Tales of love and lost love are almost nonexistant, instead songs about historical figures, real and fictional, and legends seem to be the main focus. Kom_i enjoys filling the lyrics with obscure references to places, things and events rather than a straight forward story or historical portrait.

Here's an earlier video from before the big budget days that manages to blend Joan of Arc, japanese tour bus guides, death, mental illness and the Ying Yang Twins' hit "the whisper song" into a greater whole.

Those with occultist leanings may find the video for "Ra" enlightening in unexpected ways. While the majority of the video shows you the lofty heights man (in this case Kom_i as a stargate-esque queen) might be able to achieve in their search for a "new justice". It wisely manages to undercut everything towards the end in an Icarussian style.


So is she like the asian Grimes or what?

It's nice to see national pride sometimes. I certainly don't see much of it where I live, and what I do see of it seems unfocused and insincere. In this vid Kom_i takes you on a short but jam packed tour of northern Japan, reeling off all manner of lovely things to do and see.

Most magazines go for the "Japanese Bjork" angle, I see her as being very different and far less somber. The music is largely about finding wonder in life and history and forging a new interpretation of the world out of that.

This song for instance is on a surface level about the tale of Aladdin, but it's been updated to be about finding what was once old and forgotten, then scrubbing and shining it until it's new (with some help from a magical hardware store). These are things she will do joyously for you if you let her into your life.

Yet another example of taking something old and making it new : here we get a fresh and amusing take on the legend of Momotaro of all things.

This video is I suppose their breakout hit with over 21 million views. not my favorite but the animation is fun.

It would seem my timing is on point. Wednesday is Wednesday Campanella day. And here I present that truth in "The Bamboo Princess" a brand new video only a few hours old.

I got the new mini album, Galapagos, as soon as it dropped. Haven't listened to it all yet though, got hung up on this very song.

I can't tell with Kom_i, I know initially there was a push by the Wednesday Campanella team to not show her with any males around, this is pretty standard in the J-Pop scene though. The recent collabs with French psychedelic new wave act, Moodoïd, sort of flies in the face of all that. No that they're particularly romantic, just that it's coming time for Kom_i to "gone sexual" with her image.

Grimes is dating Elon Musk, but probably experimented with all sorts of stuff before that. She's also rather closely related to my mother's side of the family

Pablo from Moodoïd is a talented director in his own right. This video, while very fun, isn't super indicative of that fact. but this is a Wednesday Campanella thread. Check out his videos for "Miss Smith" "Je Suis La Montagne" and "Les chemins de traverse", all wonderful and very well done

My feeling is no, I don't find her particularly sexy. Her personality and joi de vivre gives me a massive heart on though. You can feel however you like about her, lewd or no

There's an English language website they put out to correspond with the new music.


Gives a lot of the meaning, emotions and processes behind each new song. Not to mention the lyrics translated to English.

Some words from the beatmaker behind the hits:

>Galapagos by Wednesday Campanella is a very chill and spiritual EP. It’s a calm and mysterious EP. It lets you forget the stress of daily life and takes you to another world.

>After it was completed, I listened to "The Sand Castle" and somehow I was moved to tears. I thought, "Huh? It’s a very good song, isn’t it!"

>People who like "fun and crazy" Campanella, which we always have been until now, may find that the content is unsatisfying if they only listen once. So please, listen to it carefully again. This EP is very spiritual and it may take you a few listens to notice that it’s our "craziest" work. It’s a deadly poison which resembles good medicine

>We have turned away from what is popular and catchy and made an EP prioritizing the thought that this is what suits us the best right now. Rather than "get me super excited!" it might be better if you listen to it when you’re feeling the fatigue life brings.

Kenmochi couldn't have put it better. I got it as soon as it dropped and I'm only about halfway through the 8 songs. No signs of poisoning yet


Since the lyrics are now easily obtainable in english I thought I would match them with the newer videos


>The Bamboo Princess (based on the legend of Princess Kaguya, who came from outer space)

Lush greens,

Brand new sprout is coming out (bursting into bud)

Beyond the helix of life

The sound of the bamboo tree cracking

Marking the end of her journey through spacetime

Spreading the shimmering light

Where you’re coming from and where you’re going


The full moon recalls

The invulnerable flesh

The unclouded eye, straight as a bamboo tree

Remembering the song of the Moon metropolis

Arrows hurtle upward cutting only the air



Even the evil and ruthless king

Dionysius holds his breath

Saw that finish from the Paddock

No choice but to believe and watch

Fuji View Stand

Feel the trust over friendship

Selinuntius, the trainer

Days we spent at the stable

Ranch and stalls

Clearly faster than the sinking sun

Ran like dark wind

As turning the last corner

The towers of Syracuse, there were

Run on, Melos

No chance of winning

Got nothing but my life

Run on, Melos

This is the last anyhow

May God be my witness


Philostratus forecasts

Critical to collect information

Predictor ain’t an easy job

Gathering materials around

Nose, head, neck head to head

Showdown for a 3 year old racehorse

Hopefully with long distance

Let’s win by 10 length

Clearly faster than the sinking sun

Ran like dark wind

As turning the last corner

The towers of Syracuse, there were

Run on, Melos

No chance to winning

Got nothing but my life

Run on, Melos

This is the last anyhow

May God be my witness

Run on, Melos

Run on, Melos

Kom_i on the song making process for this one:

>Now known for the music video set in Mongolia! This song was originally produced for the Japan Derby as a song about horse racing. The Japan Racing Association invited us for a tour of the racetrack, which was an incredible experience. A thoroughbred is more naive and timid than the other horses, but much larger and so beautiful, like some kind of prince made of glass. Looking into his eyes completely cleared my mind. The horse owner and grooms watching over him with tenderness, without making him tensed up before the next race. I must confess - I love eating horse meat, but there I found an atmosphere that I could never put into words - a genuine bond with the horses. The last moment of the race, with 100,000 people holding their breath, was a moment I felt could have been unchanged since the B.C. period in Italy.

>Three Mystic Apes

See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil but

There’s a forgotten monkey - Do No Evil,

It’s the fourth symbol

Now, he’s out of fashion

Now he’s abandoned

It’s ceaseless

Tōshō-gū shrine

I will behave myself

It’s ceaseless

Tōshō-gū shrine

If it’s impolite

For whom is this rule?

The executives always say

‘Follow the rules’

It’s unsophisticated

They say it’s unsophisticated

It’s ceaseless

Tōshō-gū shrine

I will behave myself

It’s ceaseless

Tōshō-gū shrine

If it’s impolite

Whatever’s hidden

Can never get a laugh

History and personal meaning:

>The three wise monkeys of the Nikkō Tōshō-gū shrine are believed to have been introduced into Japan through Rome, Egypt and China. There used to be a fourth monkey which covered his crotch - “Do no evil”. I guess it was a joke, but by the time the monkeys have reached the Nikkō Tōshō-gū shrine only the three remained, unfortunately. When I sing the lyric “It’s ceaseless”, it expresses the sublime nobility of the Nikkō Tōshō-gū shrine, and my sincere admiration and awe toward it.




Semyonov Matryoshka

For you

Matryoshka in space

Floating in the air

Kukyo Nehan

Sanze Shobutsu


Space in the body

You in space

Loop of the lives


Perpetual movement

of russian dolls

Sensual movement

that unfolds like a virus

Abramtsevo Matryoshka


Large ones, small ones,


Looking up




Space in the body

You in space

Loop of the lives


Universal movement

that guides to the papyrus temple

Kom_i on meeting Pablo Padovani:

>Matryoshka reveals a smaller version of itself inside, which has, in turn, more and more replications within. As if it’s the space itself contains an infinite loop. Pablo from Moodoïd, who also sings, named the song. The production of this song was done over the internet until we shot the music video, which was the first time we met him in person. My friend Yoko-san, who lives in France, introduced him to me. She thought Pablo and I may have a chemistry to make something interesting. I liked how Pablo’s perspective shifts in a fantasy way, and he expresses himself in and outside of music. Throughout the production of this song I made my first French friend. We recorded at the studio we usually use, and sung as if we were in the clouds, feeling relieved to be inside the grand loop of life.

Humidity and temperature so bad I'm catching heatstroke at night. Staying up late and watching Wednesday Campanella vids at night is the only thing that makes sense in that kind of weather.

Seanbaby was funny internetman, but in an era before youtube. AVGN stole a lot of material from him and made it "big". Sean used to write for EGM (a vidya mag) and would play all the worst games then write funny things about them, long before this was a career path for uncreatives. He also tracked down and messed with Nintendo autists before that was a thing either. Had a good eye for weird nostalgia and always knew how to turn a phrase.

Now he's mostly forgotten, taking care of his fledgling family and slumming it in the shitstreaked alleys of Cracked. Still funny though.

I included a pic of Kom_i to keep my samefag thread on topic.

As dumb as this sounds I struggled to find the right video to post for the 4th of July. I've settled on "Ikkyu-San" because on a surface level its the most "pozzed" video they've done. Yet if you watch to the end you'll find out that "Ikkyu-San" has a very different purpose than his effeminate mixed-race actor initially portrays. I don't know if it's a hopeful video, but it is about giving thanks to someone you don't expect to be thankful towards.

Kom_i is some sort of "it" girl in Japan. Like Vogue most stylish woman of the year-level "it" girl.

While I can sort of see it, I think it's just an excuse to for agents of influence to push the whole Wednesday Campanella experience on the world. Some of their videos are even sponsored by Adobe and Intel to give you an idea of the level they're at.

In this video Kom_i engages in an ancient Japanese occultic whodunnit. Her shadow self is the main suspect, but higher forces are always at play as physical objects and implements conspire against her.

I've seen them before, I love the look and aesthetic but there's a lot of cynical pandering that goes into most J-Pop groups. Almost any genre you can think of has its J-Pop equivalent. Things like "Lyrical School" and "Rhymeberry" are good examples of this technique.

Lyrical School actually started as "Tengal 6". This was extremely amusing to me because "Tengal" is a Japanese sextoy company that specializes in fleshlights, they were basically the "fleshlight 6" until their popularity picked up and they started cycling in and out new members as Lyrical School.

Hot water’s great, hot water’s great, my fingers are getting all wrinkly

Hot water’s great, hot water’s great, all in moderation or you’ll get dizzy

It instantly cures stiff shoulders, back pain, muscle fatigue on top of sensitivity to the cold, rheumatoid arthritis, nerve pain, anal fistulas, hemorrhoids and more

That’s how demons and the healthy

have been extending their life, a hundred thousand years

Heal the fatigue from the day you had– let’s use some Bath Roman here

I inherited this cooking stove from my father

but it’s been in the family for way way way way way longer than that

He’s got a job as the attendant at the Shitamachi public bath

Their pride and joy is the outdoor bath, which is a huge hit

They’ve got a sand bath, bubble bath, cold water tub, steam tub

Water jets in the footbath in the stone sauna, and the “Diablo”

Their general bath long loved by the locals

400 yen to bathe, an additional 200 yen charge for the sauna

20 yen for 3 minutes of the hair dryer, cow milk soap for 80 yen

Slips prevented by the non-slip mats,

getting your valuables stolen is Bullshit

Don’t Lose your locker key,

KEEP the hot water at the pleasant temperature of 40C

Devil, demon, Satan and Lucifer, they’re turning into fields, alfalfa

Anyone can ascend to Heaven by getting in the bath,

Iemme draw attention to that: right to Heaven

A sting comes to the store and the police get in the bath,

English man in New York *

I Wont you **, I Need you but on the days it’s closed I Miss you la la la

Guys who won’t get out of the shower,

guys who change the channel on the TV in the sauna

Guys who get in without washing their body first,

guys who do their laundry in the tub

Think about how you’re being a nuisance to everyone else

Let’s all have fun when we’re in the bathtub together

And deal a Body blow to anybody who doesn’t get it

YES it’s my Dearblo

When you’re in the bathtub, doesn’t matter if you’re young,

old, boy, girl, angel, or demon, we’re all the same

Stay in it 24/7, the fix is simple– be an expert in hot water

Bull’s eye pattern, checkered, ruinous omen, Morioka reimen, miso ramen

It states that it’s a natural hot spring

but they use commercially available Bath Roman here too actually

It’s a 3 minute walk from the CoCo Ichiban

After you exit the Nishinichi Nippori ticket gate

Go down to the 16th floor of the underground dungeon,

beat the mid-boss and then head inside the store

Sushiro, Jaburo, Plamo Kyojiro, from the cauldron bath to sepak taraw

It’s open every day until 2 at night

Let’s warm ourselves up in the hot water

Towels, fundoshi, shampoo hats and Anpanman bathing sets

Stealing and peeping are strictly banned, Stan Hansen, lariat

Angels rest their wings and smile, steaming services, pin-up shot

It’s a huge hit with the fallen angels

Things’re gettin’ hot in the little washing place, la la la

Warm your body to the bone: the Diablo public bath

>This song is why I take long relaxing baths more often

>t. Me

That's the song title but I've had a hell of a time trying to figure out why. In this video Kom_i is abducted and altered by a group of asians with blue eyes. They're after her blood. Lyrically the whole song is about blood, specifically medical directions for taking it with a syringe. At a certain point it becomes unclear if Kom_i has been cloned/duplicated or has started taking part in the abductions. She goes through a process that changes her eye color and also widens/westernized her eyes, after that we see her emerging from a cocoon, a changed woman. The video ends with her discarded and disoriented in the parking lot she was picked up in, she seems ready to collapse and fade away until she spots another asian woman walking by in the distance, this makes her altered self take hold as her eyes change color again and a horrible smile consumes her face.

One of my favorite songs musically but one of the more upsetting videos from the trio.

Sidestep the alliances we’ve made 4 times now

We’re all free We used to dream Until then…

The Parisians know, there’s no justice in that council, the Minister’s a nasty guy

It’s now or never, Napoleon: we’re waiting for you instead of his grandkid

“It would be hopeless to retreat before he renounces the throne”

Wellington lies to Bernadotte. I just brought my men! C’mon Napoleon, how ‘bout it?

Heroes are immortal, our predicament’s a standstill

Would the world change if we squatted here

on this deserted island? C’mon comrades, let’s go

It’s the emperor, the emperor right before our very eyes! Let’s get back!

Even in the face of large meadows reduced to ashes

We’re all free Until then…

The Parisians know, Pius is fuming

It just hit me after I joined the BAD

That we skipped over you, Napoleon, that’s all

Towards the end of the bubble France and Germany

and the inside and Britian were all in ruins

Nothin’ graceful about it– may day’s coming soon so go home, Napoleon

Heroes are immortal, our predicament’s a standstill

The triumphant return of that guy from Corsica,

the triumphant return of that guy from Corsica

The triumphant return of that guy from Corsica,

the triumphant return of that guy from Corsica

Would the world change if we squatted here

on this deserted island? C’mon comrades, let’s go

It’s the emperor, the emperor right before our very eyes! Let’s get back!

I’m the emperor

I had no idea Kom_i made an appearance with my Japanese comedy heros Matsumoto and Hamada from Downtown. Kinda want to track it down. Matsu should be directing more movies instead being stuck hosting talk shows, he looks so unhappy.

Marie Antoinette

Notre Dame, holidays almost all week

Montmatre, partying hard

Stuffing myself in Marseilles

Making impulse buys at Champs-Élysées

Landing in Normandy

Flipping the switch OFF at the Panthéon

Feuillants, Jacobins– which one are you?

A new regime, what do you say so!

An absolute monarch, Espace

Instant nouvelle vague

From mille-feuille

To esprit, poisson, Luxembourg

Hey-! The old monarchy busted out of Bastille

Doing that all the time

Put Versailles in the red

It’s Paris, the city of flowers

Dance the French can-can

Making a racket in Montpellier

Getting discounts with coupons on Saint-Germain

A 2-hour course in Burgundy

Corsica Island, giving my liver a day off

An adventurous Moulin Rouge

Reading my favorite books in the study

Love is a Versailles rose. I have a second stomach for dessert

Every Burger Roumande Choco Anpan

Elize White Lolita

Lumberjack stubble from Alfort

Even without bread

I treat my guests with a Bourbon dynasty

It’s Paris, the city of flowers

Dance the French can-can

Let them eat cake

French Revolution

>One of their early videos. Something strange I've noticed over the years is that while Japs have a hard time with speaking English, they speak French wonderfully. Maybe part of their enduring love affair with French culture

Bit of a scary day, had to look after my mother following a near fatal accident. Luckily she was protected from grave harm and escaped with only minor injuries. Glad I have a spare room to put her up in.

Who cares right? Me. a lot. here's a fun Wed Camp video. All sorts of weird shit in this one I could write up, but I'll save that for another time.

Newer pictures of Kom_i always look so serious. I guess that's part of big important photoshoots though.

Oh yeah, sorry for not replying. Mother is doing well. It's actually a miracle she wasn't hurt badly, and oven filled with burning hot food fell onto her on a train. And when I say miracle I mean it. It landed on her arms and there was no brushing and the most minor of burns, very small in size. Her job is on the trains so it means she got some time off to rest and recover. I was glad I could offer her a place to stay to calm down and talk through what happened.

Here's a video about Kom_i being trailed by and then battling unknown forces. She gets caught and has herself uploaded to the digital world but this seems to give her the self reflection needed to overcome her captors.

A recent interview photoshoot. While my nipspeak is pretty crummy I was able to find out that one of the inspirations for the new mini-album was none other than Minakata Kumagusu.

Minakata Kumagusu is a much neglected genius who studied a wide array topics including language, folklore, botany, biology, ethnology, natural history and discovering many types of mycetozoa. Lined up perfectly with some of my research into cross-species gene transfer from certain types of fungi.

Moss, fungi, mold and plant life are all big themes in the new music.

An impressive live performance of Princess Kaguya (the bamboo princess). The part towards the middle with the moon bunnies carrying her altar reminded me a lot of Kenneth Anger's "Rabbit's Moon" from 1972.

Wednesday Campanella have been doing a lot of very inventive performance art pieces for the new album, I'm not even sure they're done before a live audience.

Another live performance, this one much longer and more intricate. Wednesday Campanella got access to the Tokyo racehorse racecourse for this one and make sure to use it to it's full potential. The stuff towards the end with all the ghostly white-clad women is particularly striking. Especially when she's walking on their backs then being carried in the crucified pose with them holding her crown.

Offense & defense clash right before the last train

for Tokyo Shibuya district.

Climbing the hilly roads, it's just a 10 minute walk

from Maruyama station.

Culture Village~

Really, the lust is irresistable at Bunkamura.

When we leave, we're in the red-light districts.

Welcome to the zoo of night.

The extension fee for an emergency rest stop

is sudden death.

Slippers, soaps directly delievered from France

at Savon de Marseille.

At a Meshimori inn,

the metamorphosis is a magical mystery.

The fantasy is gradually coming,

a strange feeling final fantasy.


108 innumerable stars

are falling from the sky.

Ground frank weenies, parukii, anti,

shaussen, cured! It's a 72-hour process!

Taking your hand, party, say! Ho−!

It's a light call & response.

When I say “F,” everyone so say “G”!

You – fall perfectly!

Fall to where I am!

You – fall perfectly!

Spin round & round in my castle!


Spin round & round!

Hello! Majocco Club!

This way, it's Majocco Club!

Hello! Majocco Club!

With student discount, it's merely 3,000 yen.


Merely 3,000 yen!

The flying fluorescent pain that sparkles,

the pink water balloons,

even if I'm cut, even if I'm torn, even if my head hurts,

I'll fake a smile.

Roasting it over a fire with toothpicks,

we gnaw at this sizzling world.

The fantasy is gradually coming,

a suddenly changing final fantasy.


The smoke from 7 smoked meat shops

lingers in the night sky.

Smoked black pepper,

romance, guilty, afternoon tea,

diversity, diversity garnished with color!

Follow behind me, it's one word, you say!

It's a light call & response.

When I say “F,” everyone so say “G”!

Everyone so say “G”!

Into the abyss, go!

Falling together, E!

Feel the cosmos, Q!

It's our last decision!

You – fall perfectly!

Fall to where I am!

You – fall perfectly!

Spin round & round in my castle!


Spin round & round!

One of the downsides of being autistic about a Japanese group is the hole just goes deeper and deeper. There's apparently a subscription service called "garage" where you get access to all kinds of behind the scenes footage and making of documentaries for a small monthly fee. I can't really justify it with my poor Japanese skills, but I'm very tempted to sign up.

Here's a weird video dedicated to Kamehameha the great.

Lookin’ good

Naked, except

For a feather mantle, a helmet

And now he’s in town

Being interrogated

By the police

Nothin’ fishy here

He explains desperately

But it doesn’t work

He starts to sweat

Even when

A crisis looms

In Waikiki

His armpit [hair]

Flows in the breeze

Kamehameha Style

Tu tu Yeah x2 (Back and forth)

4 golden statues gleaming suspiciously

Even when

A crisis looms

In Waikiki

His armpit [hair]

Flows in the breeze

Kamehameha Style

Tu tu Yeah x2 (Back and forth)

4 golden statues gleaming suspiciously


He’s gonna let loose

In downtown Honolulu

He bumps shoulders

With some

Scary-looking guy

He’s wearing a Hawaiian shirt with a crazy print

And sunglasses

He starts to sweat

Even when

A crisis looms

In Waikiki

His armpit [hair]

Flows in the breeze

Kamehameha Style

Tu tu Yeah x2 (Back and forth)

4 golden statues gleaming suspiciously

Even when

A crisis looms

In Waikiki

His armpit [hair]

Flows in the breeze

Kamehameha Style

Tu tu Yeah x2 (Back and forth)

4 golden statues gleaming suspiciously

Rare pictures of Kom_i are one thing, but there's also a whole underground world of demo and rough version tracks I'll probably never get to hear. The group does a lot of limited run demo/alternate CDs only for sale at Japanese retailers. They seem to sell like hotcakes then get resold for a high price.

Here's a fan video that combines rare pictures and an "unreleased" song

Not sure why I never poster this one, one of the first videos from the trio I saw.

Kom_i gets hired to clean house, only that house happens to be owned by a family of Vampires. Through to course of her time there she find out she's part of the family, so to speak.

An interesting side note at least to me there were no equivalent "vampire" legends in Japan until the 1950's whereas the rest of asia and the pacific islands all had their own versions in their folklore.

Got some jp-only WedCamp merch in the mail yesterday. Feels important to pay them back for the many feels the music, videos and performances give me.

Very artistic set from a book called "Dark Eros". The section is called [Shedding] and deals with life, death and rebirth.

One of the earliest music videos, I think the song is from their first ep. The style they did it in almost reminds me of old screensavers. I guess because it's mostly static images with the lyrics over them.

I like it, was pretty amused when I saw it pop up spoiling them. At the same time it's fun to change things up, might well end up surprising yourself with what you choose. Not even sure why I spoiled, as you said; pretty tasteful as far as nudes go.

These ones actually should have a spoiler and I'm not putting it on.

An interesting tidbit is that while Wednesday Campanella's rise to fame was happening, Kom_i was in the midst of going to university on top of all the video shoots and live performances. Her focus seems to have been on traditional Japanese fashion and costuming.

A song about Ono no Imoko, a 7th century Japanese politician and diplomat. The video has a weirdly DBZ feel to it and also incorporates elements of baseball and star wars.

>If you were an animal, what kind would you be?

Either a cat or a sloth I guess. And my body is really flexible, so maybe a mollusk or something.
