The Bawdies gear up for the big time

Japanese rock band The Bawdies are gearing up for superstardom following their summer tours across the country.

That is according to Shawn Despres, writing for the Japan Times, who believes the group is on the verge of Beatle-like heights.

While the band would perhaps rather be renowned for their music, their image will undoubtedly play a big role in their identity as one of the country's best music acts.

Their attire is unique and snazzy, due to its combination of elegant suits matched with strikingly bright ties and trendy hairstyles.

The group knows how to party though, and is already enjoying its moment in the spotlight by enjoying backstage antics at festivals.

Lead vocalist Roy Watanabe, who also plays the base, told the news provider about the group's experience at the Sky Jamboree in August.

"We arrived at the site the day before the festival and were able to spend the night drinking with the other artists on the bill," he said.

"Before we knew it, morning had come and everyone in the band was practically naked backstage and really hung-over."

Sounds like they're already enjoying the ride - watch this space.
