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) 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. The copy I currently have for sale is in perfect condition and includes the obi strip. Very rare and out of print. Region 2. A true treasure for any fan of Mr. Sakurai, including non-fangirl fans - it's a great show and a beautiful video.

Buck-Tick Singles on Digital Video Disc (Limited Edition)
Released in 2006 as part of Buck-Tick's 20th anniversary promotions, this limited edition DVD contains the music videos for all of Buck-Tick's singles from "Just One More Kiss" through to "Romance." Housed in a deluxe LP-sized box, it also comes with a bonus disc containing sexxxy making-of footage, a jumbo booklet full of promo photos from all the single releases, a keychain, and a huge and really awesome poster. Fun fact: Cayce has had this poster hanging on the walls of various apartments for approximately five years. Anyhow, I can personally say that watching all these music videos in DVD quality is a lot more fun than watching them on YouTube. You can put them on the big screen and see them in all their crisp glory, delectating over all kinds of details you'd never be able to see on the YouTube screen! Highly recommended, rare and out of print. Region 2. Great condition. Loads of PV screencaps available on BT Zone.

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 a small dent at the top of the slipcase, the set is in perfect condition. Rare and out of print.

Big brooding clanking oil refinery! Imai is aroused.
Cigarettes suck! (get it?)
Just look at that phallic symbol.
There are like a zillion shades of grey in this photo. Eat that, Christian.
More shades of grey, and one shade of blond. That Imai's such an
iconoclast I mean, ikonokrust.
Fangirl juices time.
