Tour Pamphlet Extravaganza

For our first shopping service post in a long while, we're pleased to bring you a truly massive load of Buck-Tick tour pamphlets and other books, many of which we've never had the pleasure of offering on here before. As always, orders are on a first-come, first-served basis, so if you're interested in purchasing any of these items, send us an email at themadaristocrat at gmail right away! If you can't pay right away, don't worry - we're happy to put items on reserve for a up to a month. Now let's look at the goodies!

HYPER Psychedelic Buck-Tick Mook

HYPER, a compendium of photos, interviews, and band history published around the time of the Taboo tour, is possibly the single weirdest book Buck-Tick have ever released, and boy, is that saying something! The first half of this book tells a trippy story in few words, with many bizarre photo collages. The second half includes interviews, more trippy collages, and some precious photos of the young band members goofing off behind the scenes. Not to be missed! Aside from a few bent pages at the bottom front corner, the book is in nearly perfect condition. Rare and out of print.
3500 yen.

Front cover (LP record not included - shown for scale) 

Hoshino Hidehiko's code of life!

Toll's spirit is leaving his body!!

 Now Acchan-chan is going to join him!

Ooh, flesh!

Zomg, stripping!

Hallelujah woo yeah!

There are a lot of jewel collages in this book. This is just one of them.

Cover you and smother you with ornaments of gold...

Like it says.

The band members in their feckless youth.

Omg long-lost Buck-Tick manga!

"Sex... Sex... R & Sex." Said Acchan-chan at age 22.

Shapeless Mini-Book

This miniature Buck-Tick book may be small, but it contains almost 100 pages of choice full-color photos from the band's early years through to around 1992. The second half contains interviews with each band member on a different topic, but if you can't read Japanese, this book is worth it for the photos alone. In perfect condition. Rare and out of print.
3000 yen.

Front cover (LP record not included - shown for scale)

Holy crap that's a big B-T!

Homo-eros with Hoshino Hidehiko!

Hipster guitar in the fallen leaves! Plus blue hair! (You gotta have blue hair!)

Yutaka with a Giant Bass!

Imai was doing it before Acchan-chan! Cat cat cat cat cat's!

Sexy Beast Hide didn't start being a #sexybeast yesterday, you know!

Darker Than Darkness Tour Pamphlet

Very large, hardcover tour pamphlet from the Darker Than Darkness tour contains 40 full-color pages of gorgeous, uber-goth closeup sexy arty glamour shots of the band members, interspersed with uber-goth arty photos of various interesting objects on fire. If you are really goth and into arson, this is the pamphlet for you! If you're really into long-haired Acchan-chan, this is also for you! Unfortunately the binding is broken (too much drooling over Acchan-chan), but aside from that, the book is in great condition - no stains, tears, wrinkles, or scratches. Rare and out of print.
3500 yen.


COSMOS Tour Pamphlet

Softcover, LP-sized tour pamphlet contains 32 full color pages of really trippy photos of the band members and various drug-related objects, such as ash trays full of cigarettes (but smoking is bad for you!)  It also contains 48 black-and-white pages full of candid photos of the band members goofing around backstage and on the road, including humorous commentary (written in Japanese, of course.) This is probably the largest collection of behind-the-scenes photography of Buck-Tick ever printed, so if you love your band members makeup-free, drunk and giggling unawares, you need this. For serious. Great condition, rare and out of print. 4500 yen.

This is what the color drug photos look like.

In the candids, Toll has a beard, and Sakurai has a smoke-beard (but smoking is bad for you!!!)

Sakurai and Imai brave the dangers of the convenience store to buy some pre-packaged underwear.

Imai says, "no photos, yo!"  Too late.

Hide makes goggle eyes at Acchan-chan.


Kyokutou I Love You / Warp Days Tour Pamphlet

This glossy, LP-sized tour pamphlet features a shiny metallic silver cover and lots of large photos of the band members, including a whole series of making-of shots from the set of the Kyokutou Yori Ai wo Komete PV. Unfortunately, the previous owner of this pamphlet didn't keep it in a safe place, and it has suffered minor water damage and some ripped pages. Luckily, the rips don't really mar any of the photos inside, but given the damage, we have lowered the price accordingly. Aside from the rips, the rest of the pamphlet is in excellent shape. Rare and out of print.
1500 yen

Front cover (LP record not included - shown for scale)

Closeup on water damage.


Check out that fishnet stocking he's wearing over his pants! Congrats, Acchan-chan. It may have taken you fifty years, but at least now you know that the stockings go under the pants and not the other way around.

Mona Lisa Overdrive Tour Pamphlet

This glossy, LP-sized tour pamphlet features lots of large photos of the band members in all their 2003 cyberpunk glory, plus a lot of live photos, and a few salacious black and white backstage shots. In perfect condition, and as big and shiny as any fan could desire. Rare and out of print.
3500 yen.
Front cover (LP record not included - shown for scale)

Smoking is bad for you!

Drinking is bad for you! (Eyeliner is not bad.)

Back bends are good for you!

 Cyberpunk AF. (Or should we say Cyberpunk AS?)

Devil and Freud Climax Together Pamphlet

This pamphlet doesn't have that many pages, but what it lacks in page count, it makes up for in deep, stupendous color, and creative fold-outs featuring the band members and the factory nightscapes they love. Perfect condition, very rare and hard to find.
2500 yen.

Front cover (LP record not included - shown for scale)

Acchan-chan lounges seductively in a cyberpunk interior, hoping to get some androids to dream of him instead of electric sheep for once...

Now Hide's trying it, too.

Imai doesn't want to be left out, either!

Tenshi no Revolver Tour Pamphlet

This artsy black-and-white tour pamphlet was all the rage on the internet when it was released, but has since been lost to time... until now! If you like your Buck-Tick dressed to the nines and lounging on artsy architecture, you'll never stop drooling over this one. Perfect condition. Rare and very difficult to find.
4000 yen.

Front cover (LP record not included - shown for scale)

Ever have those days where you put on a tuxedo and then just lie around doing nothing?

If not, you should try it sometime.

Ohh man remember how swanky Imai looked with this hair & beard combo?

Acchan-chan gears up to pull something out of his top hat. What do you think it will be?

Toll's thinking about how, if Hide were wearing a skirt on those stairs, he could look up Hide's skirt.

Toll: "I wish I knew how to play piano." Sakurai: "Not even my cats are as lazy as I am."

DIQ 2011 Pamphlet

For those of you who don't remember, the DIQ 2011 was the retrospective show in which Buck-Tick played one song from each album they had released to date, in preparation for their 25th anniversary and the founding of Lingua Sounda. Those of you who've seen the DVD of this show may be unable to recall anything besides Imai's ugly blue shirt, however, you should be pleased to learn that there are no ugly blue shirts whatever inside this magical little pamphlet full of photos of the Buck-Tick members inhabiting a gothic fairytale house! The textured paper made this one hard to photograph, but we assure you that it's in mint condition, and ever so much better looking in real life. Rare and out of print.
4500 yen.

Front cover (LP record not included - shown for scale)

Back cover.

Sabbat PV redux: Buck-Tick are back in the Gothic House.

The Czars of Buck-Tickistan are ready to take on the world!

Imai toys with a magical mushroom (as usual)

Hide: "Hey girl, come sit down with me!"

REAL Rozen Kreuzers have Rozen Wallpaper.

Mood: sideburns, brocade, and blue pants. #ootd

Mood: who told you I smile? Smile? Not me. Look at how goth this mug is! Don't you dare take my goth card away. Grrr... #scowl4life

Mood: my jacket matches the stained glass windows!

Mood: Hey girl, wanna come and touch my rose garden?

C'mon. You know you wanna.

But if Hide's offer didn't look appealing enough, Acchan-chan is ready to open your Magic Box.


Again, all queries should be addressed to themadaristocrat at gmail.


  1. Sorry, Hide. I'm afraid of rosebuds.

  2. It's precisely that Hyper book that I'm interested in talking to you about.


How have you been heart feeling?
