As the composer and the lyricist, Kobayashi-san said "the reaction of the audience was very good. I think it's already successful." Looks very satisfied.

Describing the youth in the light and shadow of their young age in the booming of Rock band in 90s, based on kanchika-san's novel Good Dream, Kobayashi director, with the ambition to produce the best music movie, and the script writer Iwai-san put it onto the big screen. Acting and leading in a movie for the first time, Akanishi said "the music is quite different from my style. At first I was not sure how to sing it, so I let Kobayashi-san decide the way. I feel honored to work with Kobayshi-san and to be inspired by his great creativity!"

On 5th, in Kobayashi-san's special part PINK EXPLOSION, after SalyuxKobayashi, radberry Orchestra, the secret guest Akanishi showed up. Kobayashi-san says "I actually share things in common with Akanishi. I felt a bit out of the place there, but when we had eye-contact, I couldn't help smiling." About Akanishi's singing, he said "at first, he sang softly, then becomes powerful, which gives it a dynamic feeling. I'm very satisfied.

This time, as the producer of the theme song Bandage, Kobayashi-san said "as a music producer, being immersed in the music world, I think 90s music is the most essentially dynamic music. My aim is to create shinning work pieces." About other songs in the movie, also produced by Kobayashi-san, details are still unknown.

KAT-TUN赤西仁(25)がMr.Childrenのプロデューサー小林武史(50)とユニットを組んだ。小林が監督を務め、赤西が主演する映 画「BANDAGE バンデイジ」(来年1月16日公開)の主題歌を2人で担当し、今秋に発売する。すでに今月初めの都内のイベントにサプライズゲストと して登場し、観客を驚かせた。

 同映画は小林監督がミスチルをブレークさせた90年代前半の音楽シーンを題材とした青春音楽映画だ。「当時はバブルが弾けた後でも、音楽シーンが 元気な時代だった。振り返るとバンドブームでいろんなジャンルが、ほぼ出尽くしたころ。そのエネルギーの秘密を、この映画で探れたら」と、メガホンを取っ た。

 主役には直感的に赤西を指名した。「センシティブ(敏感)な人間のようでいて、やぼなくらい肉感的でもある。はぐらかし方がうまいのに、誠実な男 でもある」。小林監督のコンセプトは「ミクスチャー」。80年代中期ごろに数多いジャンルの音楽が融合したロックを表す単語で、多様性や混合性を指す。繊 細さと情熱を併せ持つ主人公には、甘いマスクでいながら大柄で強い存在感も放つ、異色のジャニーズアイドル赤西がぴったりだった。「イメージしたのは、 80年代後半の英国バンド、デュランデュランかな。美形で甘い歌声ながら、演奏後には僕と熱く抱擁しちゃうところとかがね」と説明した。

  今作で映画監督デビューする音楽プロデューサーの小林武史氏(50)が制作したロック曲で、2人はこのほど都内で行われた東京ガールズコレクションで同曲 を披露した。赤西は「全く自分の音楽性と異なった曲なので、最初はどのように歌ったらよいか戸惑いましたが、小林さんに身を任せて取り組みました」。小林 監督は「大人も若い子も十分楽しんでもらえる映画になった」と自信を見せた。



KAT-TUNの赤西仁(25)が、初主演映画「BANDAGE バンデイジ」(来年1月16日公開)の劇中で結成したバンド「LANDS」のボーカルとして、“ソロデビュー”することが7日、分かった。

  楽曲は、映画と同タイトルの主題歌(今秋発売)。同作で映画監督を務めた音楽プロデューサー、小林武史(50)がキーボードを担当。ダンスサウンドの KAT-TUNとは違い、80年代に活躍した英バンド、デュラン・デュランを彷彿させる甘いロックサウンドで、赤西のルックスと歌声にピタリとハマる。
