About Ju-ken

Ju-ken is a Japanese support bassist, mostly in live performances and tours with some recording, TV, and PV appearances. He uses Instagram only these days. His last blog was http://ameblo.jp/jkn0music/ (now deleted, some of it at least is at the Wayback Machine).

In September 2017, he announced that he was a member of the band 戦国時代-The age of civil wars- (website, Twitter, Instagram, Line, YouTube, post here); they have also released songs and had shows as Sengoku-jidai -いわゆる”before”-.

There are posts by year of his activities; I haven’t been keeping 2018 post updated as events are announced; I’m trying to go back through his Instagram and other sources to get caught up. (2018.10.06: I’ve made it back to August 15 and have added everything Sengoku-Jidai related).

There are a couple of other bands he’s been a member of in the last few years. In January 2014, he joined the band SDR (facebook, twitter, instagram). They are not currently active.

He announced a new band Derailers (facebook, twitter, label, label facebook, post here) on 2014.01.29; they made their major debut with their album A.R.T on 2014.12.03. They were not active for a few years but in 2018, they reformed as DRLS (Instagram).
