The first and only album STARBOW I (note the so promising “1”) became thus a strange mixture of techno pop and conventional idol pop. The best example of Starbow Mk II was their second single Tanpopo batake de tsukamaete. It had nothing to do with the radical ideas of their previous incarnation. It was brightly sung run-of-the-mill idol pop.
Today Takashi Matsumoto doesn’t even want to remember his strange adventure with Starbow. “Instead of coming out from tenth planet, I wandered into a black hole”, he laughs.
