#1 "Lock music is very popular..Like Rady Jane and Yellow Submaline...But Japanese people cannot pronouce Lock'n 'Lorr,so we re-named it Group Sounds. "

Rolling Stone/March 1,1969 from "Rockin' in the land of the Rising Sun"
'60s beat explosion extended all over the world.
In some country the people called them as special word like in Japan people called it as Group Sounds (GS) in Denmark peple called it as Pigtrad musik,in Dutch they called Nederbeat, 'Neder'from Nederland (the Netherlands) and 'beat' from beat-music of course.
In France, and in French speaking Canada (mostly Montreal, some Ontario) the 60's beat music was called ye-ye. This, especially in Canada is what the music sung in the French language was refered to.
There were lots of Japanese Blazilian bands in Brazil. They covered Japanese GS songs. There were called ye-ye-ye.

The SPIDERS are Japan's favorite "eleki" group. And "eleki" is the Japanese monicker for "rock'n roll". "Eleki" can be defined as "electric" or "energetic" in Japanese. The Spiders are both. Actually the term became synonymous with "Rock" because the rythm, introduced there in 1960, utilized amplified electric instruments and the dances certainly were energetic. The Spiders, a seven-man rock group headed by Drummer Shochi Tanabe, started working in a teahouse in Kinsicho, Tokyo, which catered to American servicemen. They had used jazz groups previous to the Spiders' debut. You'll enjoy their Japanese vocalizing and their English lyrics on this record. They're really bilingual, for they have worked with such touring American rock stars as the Astronauts, the Ventures, the Honeycombs and the Surfaris, while English rock stars like Peter and Gordon and the Animals have shared Japanese stages with this remarkable septet.
