Album sales & Perfume music preferences

Third week since the debut album ~Complete Best~ was released, and the number of copies sold until now are 5,868 (#245 on charts). Not a bad number of copies sold.

Will be this number enough for TJC? I don’t know if they have to sell a specific number of copies to get the target TJC wants to get Perfume continuity in the major label market, but I belive and I hope that about 6,000 copies sold in three weeks for a barely known group as Perfume are enough to encourage their label and their producer, Yasutaka Nakata-san to go ahead with Perfume’s music career.

-> I’ve Youtubed 3 new lives from the Aiai Music Carnival Vol.8: Computer City, Electro World and Computer Driving. —go to Video page.

By the other hand, I’ve romanized a table based on Aerodynamik’s blog one. There was a radio show that was aired from 2004.5.3 to 2004.12.27 called “Perfume Planet”, where every week two members chose a song by an artist they like, in a section called “Pafyumushikku”/”Perfumusic”:

I must say that although my favourite member is Nocchi, I don’t like most of her music selection. I know and like every A-chan’s music, but Kashiyuka’s techno/shibuya-kei songs like “starship.6” by Plus-Tech Squeeze Box or “GO! GO! Fine Day” by capsule are just awsome =)
