More Shirts! More Shirts!

On the heels of the runaway success of our first t-shirt sale, it came to our attention that a longtime Japanese fan was parting with her very extensive Buck-Tick t-shirt collection, so we picked up a few more shirts for y'all! All of these are size small and slightly worn, though all are in great condition. If you love the print but the t-shirt size is too small for you - remember, t-shirt modification is easy. Size doesn't have to be destiny. Also, there are still some photobooks and DVDs available from our last sale, so make sure you scroll to the bottom of the post to check them out. As always, sales are on a first-come, first-served basis, so if you want to purchase any of these items, please email us at themadaristocrat at gmail right away. If you don't have the money yet but will soon, we'll be happy to put the item on hold for you for up to a month. All of these t-shirts are rare, limited edition items - once they're gone, they're gone. Don't expect more to turn up. Get them while the getting is good!

SOLD
Razzle Dazzle Fragile T-Shirt

This t-shirt was sold as tour goods during the Utakata no Razzle Dazzle tour as a collaboration between Buck-Tick and psychedelic artist Uno Aquirax (who also designed the Razzle Dazzle album cover). This is one of Buck-Tick's newer style t-shirts, made of extra-soft, extra-stretchy black cotton. Will fit a variety of body types. May have been worn once or twice, but appears good as new. What may appear to be fading in the photos is actually just shadows. Sorry about that.
3500 yen.

Gradelic Fish Tanker's Only 2006 T-Shirt

For those of you who love occult designs, don't miss this shirt! Featuring Hebrew writing, a rose, and some sexy ladies, this one is definitely Rozen Kreuzer enough for No. 0. We've never seen it for sale before, so feel free to assume that this is the only one left in the world. The material is heavy-duty black cotton, and it's a little faded around the neckline, but nothing noticeable. There's not a lot of stretch in this one and the body is quite tight. Recommended for petite customers.

3500 yen.

At the Night Side 2012 Fish Tanker's Only Cat Shirt

This ultra-soft, ultra-thin pale grey cotton t-shirt features a smiling cat face sure to make any cat lover smile.

Most likely never washed, never worn. This one is stretchy enough to fit a variety of body types. 3500 yen.

SOLD
Mona Lisa Overdrive Album Shirt

Fun fact: Buck-Tick released a different t-shirt for each track on Mona Lisa Overdrive. However, this shirt is not the Nakayubi shirt - it's the bonus shirt for the entire album! For those of you who'd love to stick your middle finger up at everybody, all day long, this is your chance! This shirt is made of heavy-duty black cotton, and it has probably never been worn - the color is still darker than darkness. Note the bonus sleeve detail.

Memento Mori Rebirth T-Shirt

Wow, look at this fractal-happy gothic beauty! Printed for the Memento Mori standing tour in 2009, this shirt features a skull, a falling raven, a butterfly, a sexy girl, and lots and lots of fancy patterns! The material is extra-soft, ultra-stretchy black cotton, and if it's been worn, it was only once or twice - no fading. There is a print on the right sleeve, but the back is plain black (no print). Stretchy enough to fit a variety of body types. 4000 yen.

SOLD20th Anniversary On Parade Festival T-shirt

This shirt from Buck-Tick's 20th anniversary Parade festival features a pair of identical reflected angels and some very cool lettering. It's a size small, but the body is a bit wider than some of the other shirts in this selection, so if you're a busty gal, this one is a better bet for you. Heavy duty black cotton, less stretchy than the shirts made of thinner material. Very lightly worn. Slightly faded around the collar, but nothing particularly noticeable. 
3500 yen.

WORDS by Buck-Tick

This very thick, hardcover book published by the music magazine Ongaku to Hito contains a digest of all the interviews and photoshoots Buck-Tick did for the magazine between 1987 and 2002.  In addition to 64 pages of full color photos, it contains and extensive interview section with additional photographs and some very interesting interviews chronicling the band's history and recording process tour by tour. Interviews include not only the five Buck-Tick members, but also chats with Schaft (Imai and Maki Fujii), Schwein (Imai, Sakurai, Raymond Watts), and crosstalk between Imai and Hide of X Japan, and Sakurai and Issay of Der Zibet. Recommended for any fan, but especially if you are learning Japanese, this book is a great way to practice. The textured pages made it hard to photograph but the photos look very crisp in person. Perfect condition. Out of print. 
6000 yen.

Ai no Wakusei Explosion Live DVD

This is the live DVD of Sakurai Atsushi's solo concert at NHK Hall in 2004.  Reportedly, this concert was what inspired Imai to create the concept for the 13kai wa Gekkou album, though as the stage sets are minimal, I feel sure that Imai must have been inspired by Sakurai's performance itself. Sakurai is joined onstage by an all-star backup band, including Fujii Maki (formerly of Soft Ballet) on synth, Jake Cloudchair (formerly of Guniw Tools, currently of The Mortal fame) on guitar, Miyo Ken (also of The Mortal fame) on guitar, and guest appearances by Satou Taiji (Theater Brook) and Cube Juice. In addition to his own solo works, Sakurai performs covers of David Bowie's "Space Oddity," Sawada Kenji's "Love -Dakishimetai," and Yuming's "Amaoto wa Chopin no Shirabe."  The DVD contains the full concert, plus a live music video for "Wakusei -Rebirth," and a bonus image gallery. It comes in a smoke grey hard plastic case.  This is the original pressing of this video and the only available version of this concert on DVD, as the Ai no Wakusei Collector's Box that was released in September contains Blu-Ray only...and it's only going to get rarer as the time passes, so if you want it, the time is now. Very rare and out of print. Region 2. A must have for any collector and true treasure for any fan of Mr. Sakurai, including non-fangirl fans - it's a great show and a beautiful video.
6000 yen.

Ikonokrusm Photobook Set

Released in 2002 to commemorate Buck-Tick's 15th anniversary, this deluxe photobook set contains two volumes of arty photographs of the band.  The green volume contains mostly posed shots of the band members backstage and wandering around in front of a big brooding clanking oil refinery of the type Imai thinks is so sexy (fun fact: Cayce actually knows the guy who built this oil refinery!)  The red volume contains live photography and backstage candids from the Warp Days Tour.  The two photobooks are housed in a big shiny black slipcase.  Aside from missing the obi strip, the set is in perfect condition.  Rare and out of print.
6000 yen.

Parade 2007 Live DVD First Press

This is the DVD of Buck-Tick's 20th Anniversary Parade Festival, which was held in Minato Mirai in Yokohama in September of 2007. The main DVD includes footage of one song by each band who appeared at the festival, and in many cases, the bands are performing covers of Buck-Tick songs. It also includes footage of the guest appearances by the Buck-Tick members, including Sakurai's famous pink t-shirt drunken makeout with Kiyoharu, and Imai's beer-yellow drunken fanboy fest with Endo Michirou. In between songs, there are interviews with the Buck-Tick members and the various other bands, in which all parties are wasted drunk and giggling uproariously. The second half of the main DVD includes Buck-Tick's entire performance, featuring Mr. Sakurai in the Anime Armor Leopard Babushka Costume of Doom. The first press edition (which this is) also includes a bonus DVD containing "Rest Rooms," a behind-the-scenes documentary of the Parade Tour, including the Great Ripped Pants incident, and many other funny happenings. This item is long out of print, very difficult to come by and not to be missed! Great condition.

    With so many expensive apparel knockoffs floating around, it wouldn't be impossible for some people to get away with counterfeit Buck-Tick-related paraphernalia,... if you know what I mean...

    This has literally been going on for ages, trust me on this one. You also know it.

    That's the world we live in...


    Does it even matter sometimes if either you or I still keep on being keen about the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth?! Just look how easily snake oil salesmen and Milkshake Ducks escape blame!
