The following delicious Buck-Tick books are now available for purchase via This is NOT Greatest Shopping service! I'm reposting some that I already introduced, but there are also some new ones, so be sure to check out all of them!
Rock and Read #42
Volume 42 of Rock & Read magazine, with a 32-page cover feature on Sakurai Atsushi, including a long interview and 13 pages of full-color photos. Also includes a bonus postcard. Other artists featured include Inoran of Luna Sea, Gara of Merry, Asagi of D, Akihide of Breakerz, Bansaku of Baroque, and others. This was one of the best selling issues of Rock & Read magazine and is very difficult to find for sale compared to the other issues. Perfect condition, out of print. 1700 yen.
That giant butts picture.
SOLD! (blimey that was fast!)
This gorgeous, giant hardcover photobook was released as part of Sakurai Atsushi's solo project. Contains 158 pages of sexy, arty photographs of dear Mr. Sakurai. Most of the photos are black and white, but a few are in color, including that one that all the fangirls love to make into livejournal icons. This is a must have for any fangirl, though you'll have to take care not to stain the lovely glossy pages with your fangirl juices. Rare and out of print. The cover is slightly warped but aside from that, the condition is perfect. 7500 yen. Special shipping rates apply (this thing is so heavy you could use it as a weapon.)
Like the guy in The Crow said, smoking is bad for you.
Nice visual metaphor for... ;) Also, way to encourage fans to consume alcohol.
Wow. Such tongue! Very sex! Very livejournal icon!
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. 3800 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.
