Random Fact of the Day

So yesterday, the site was updated with some new band introductions. I was taking a look through to see what we had, and stumbled across Yukkie from N@H’s blog.

He wrote something pretty interesting about the origin of the new band’s name:

I read about Noah’s ark in a book or something, [being in a band] is like rescuing people with music, so I wanted to have that sort of meaning behind it.

I also thought that it’s good to have a band name that’s easy to remember and easy to call out.

One more meaning behind the name, as Yukkie explained, is:

N@H=New organization@Heisei ishin
