Depapepe - Depanatsu ~ Drive! Drive!! Drive!! (2008)

Press release:
Depapepe is the transliteration of the Japanese name (デパペペ) for the acoustic guitar musical duo of Takuya Miura (born April 5th, 1983) and Yoshinari Takuoka (born on July 15th, 1977). The duo formed in 2002. They released three indies before their major debut, which collectively reached sales figures of about 100,000.

They made their major debut in 2005 with their album “Let’s Go!!!”, and ranked within the top 10 of Oricon’s Instrumental Artist Debut Chart. The band’s name was cobbled together by combining the Japanese word for overbite, ‘deppa’, because of Miura’s overbite, and the name of Takuoka’s previous band ‘DERUPEPE’.

Contrary to a popular rumor circulating among their fans, the two guitarists are not brothers. They are signed onto Sony Music Japan.

Word of Advice

We don't upload any of the links in this blog because, their are too many floating around anyway, and it's a waste of time. Some do it for points, while some do it for money. Well we don't do it that way here, as long as we can share and let you know what's cracking with those albums we're happy. These guys don't get a lot of exposure, and for damn sure some of them will never graze the mainstream air wave. By the way not sure if anyone actually read this stuff, but if you made it this far, The Beat Dangler thanks you.
