Meet the Tightsmen!

What happens when four guys want to play rock music during the height of Japanese Beatlemania? All you need to succeed is a catchy guitar-based sound and a visual gimmick. These gimmicks grow ever more baroque as the best ones are quickly snatched up. The Beatles had their bowl haircuts, matching collarless suits and pointy-toed boots. The Tightsmen have... tights.


The upcoming film GS Wonderland friended me back on MySpace, so I'm going to do my best virally to help the movie become a hit. Word-of-mouth marketing circa 2008 meets group sound circa 1968.
