In 2003 “ap bank” was settled by Takeshi Kobayashi, Kazutoshi Sakurai, and Ryuichi Sakamoto. “ap” was derived from Artists’ Power, which was artists’ community promoting natural energy projects on the suggestion of Sakamoto. ap bank is not an ordinary bank, but one to finance environmental projects which are trying to open up possibilities of our future. It’s a nonprofit organization and has been furnishing with funds various environmental projects in regard to natural energy, energy saving, and so on.
Bank Band was formed in order to expand possibilities of ap bank, in which Takeshi Kobayashi and Kazutoshi Sakurai have been playing the central roles.

My first post here at JPC.  smiley: smile
For some reason the user name mrs.sakurai was not available, so I had to use my old name again.

Why did you change your name, Mr_Children?  I don't know what to call you anymore.  smiley: tongue

I am kind of lost in this new forum, so I'll need time to figure out how things work here.    

What is the total sales of Kazoe Uta by now?  Does anyone know?

It's been confirmed that there will be ap bank fes.11 Fund for Japan on July 16th, 17th and 18th.

Hi alll! Yeah Misuchiru has this thread back! :)

kenshiro, the current sales for Kazoe Uta on i-Tunes only is here.

But I have no idea how to get total digital sales overall. Even RIAJ doesn't tell us. :(

If iTunes sales are around 120k already, then I think it's very likely we'll receive a digital certification for both PC Downloads (Gold, probably) and Chaku-Uta Full (Gold or Platinum) this month or the next. Can't wait!

I think it would be their first ever certified song for digital sales o.O

Good to see you all here. I miss our old JPM as well but these things happen.

As you guys know AP BAN FES 11 was announced. I wonder who is going play this year.
I don't think I will be able to make to Japan this year since I'm very busy with work but I hope they will
have a good show. All the money will go to the AP BANK FUND FOR JAPAN.

Oh, my friend meet JEN and NAKAGAWA after the Nagano concert. He was going to the Shinkansen train and saw them before they got into their private section. He talked to them a bit but they did not want to take photos with anyone. He said they were super nice and talked to many people there and people respected their wishes and no one took any photos of them. How I envy him...(-:
