  • Unicode List Part 2 (G-M)

    Mai 11 2008, 21h04 por Champ213

    Purpose of this list:

    This journal entries serves as a link collection of japanese artists that share a name with a western artist. More info here.

    Since the old list became too large and impossible to edit, I split it into 4 parts, to allow more growth.

    Part 1 (A-F)
    Part 2 (G-M)
    Part 2 (N-S)
    Part 4 (T-Z)



    How to: to create a new unicode-profile you need to scrobble at least one track. If you don't know how to type unicode romaji you can copy and paste from here:

    ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ
    abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz
    1234567890
    ?!:;#%&

    Note that the unicode characters are case-sensitive! So make sure you use the correct capitalization.

    If you know of any japanese band that needs a unicode profile, leave a comment. I will add it here to connect the 2 profiles.

    Fazer Music is THE history of finnish popular music*. Fazer label meant tango, jazz, iskelmä (schlager), pop, rock for decennies. Almost all major finnish artists have recorded for Fazer at some point of their career or at least are present in their compilations. Fazer bought smaller labels and hired the best songwriters like Toivo Kärki, Repe Helismaa or Unto Mononen 20 Suosikkia /Säveltäjä Unto Mononen.

    When WEA bought Fazer, major worry was about our cultural heritage in hands of a big international record company: why would they bother keeping old obscure finnish dance music available, when it's way more bankable to just sell the same Madonnas and Britneys all over the world?

    Well, this deal with last.fm seems like they are giving us something back. There is a streamable goldmine here. I am finding my own cultural background here in a way I couldn't imagine. I'm being surprised and presented to artists from my country I never knew about. …
