It’s been a busy Autumn for Legendary Godmother of Japanese Electronica, Coppé. As well as the culmination of her UK tour, there was the release of new EP Null and a brand new full-length album in the shape of Void.
Void features collaborations with a host of guest musicians, including Kit Clayton, Mickey The Cat, Hilothoshi, Nononum and Henry Collins. Void also features a lyrical contribution from the legendary Chris Mosdell.

The MCM Expo appears to be getting larger judging by the sheer number of dealers and stalls that make up the core content of each event. It’s also become a popular choice of venue for the rising number of dance outfits, singers and cosplayers that are emerging in the UK at the moment.

One of our many top secret projects for 2013 was the addition of a dedicated merchandise section to the J-Pop Go website.
As a result, we created a new venture (which was labeled ‘Project Green’) to look into a few ideas on how to make it work. Then we produced a limited number of J-Pop Go badges as a trial to see if people were interested. The response was good enough for us to try some other merchandise items and we’re now testing out our new J-Pop Go Shop here on the site. At the moment we have a colourful selection of badges, prints and stickers but more items are on the way – including our first range of J-Pop Go T-Shirts (more details to follow).
Meanwhile, visit our Shop and see if any of our wonderful items catches your eye!
