Band Questions »  [SOLVED] T.N.T (Jpn) Any information I can get!
  • 4
  • This band is incredibly obscure, I was wondering if anyone here has, or even knows of any releases or any information about this band. They're too obscure to even find on the Metal Archives, and web searches result in the famous Norwegian band of the same name.

    Edit: I've seen mention of them through various other Japanese bands, and 3 of its members went on to form Paradise Jade (Thanks Mazinga!): viewtopic.php?f=21&t=3234

    Above is a scanned image of the band with some information on them that I found online, but I can't read Japanese to find out what it says. Any information anyone knows or can find would be greatly, greatly appreciated.

    Here's two photos of their demos:

    Oh holy crap, I've never linked the two bands like that. You know, strangely enough, I bought Paradise Jade's single last week, and at the same time ran into a sticker of Paradise Jade's band logo, and it was paired with a T.N.T. logo, never thinking they could have been essentially the same band. That's a huge piece of info!

    I'm still looking for more info on this band. Is anyone able to read what their biography says? Also supposedly Masafumi Minato of Dead End played in a band called T.N.T, was it this one? Thanks!

    hey Tadakatsu! I read the text with my Japanese friend, there's not much of an info here except for their concerts, how they got their name (from Norway's TNT, they don't wanna change their names because of this), how they do their best to be "hard" and stuff. No info on Masafumi Minato. The right side of the picture is cut, so we couldn't read the the whole column but that part was about their concerts' dates anyway.

    I can now confirm that Minato was indeed in T.N.T. The timeline fits perfect, he was with Saber Tiger in the very early 80s, then in a band called Red, before joining T.N.T from Tokyo with whom he played as late as 1984, the year both T.N.T demos were released, before joining Saber Tiger again later in 1984. The T.N.T demos could be very early recordings with Minato, before any of his more prominent appearances, which would be incredibly cool. The only "maybe" is that Paradise Jade drummer Kaoru Shoji also played in T.N.T and could have just as easily appeared on one or both of the demo-tapes.
