If You Haven't Listened To The J-Pop Group Perfume, You Probably Should

Don't worry. This is less weird than what Japan normally offers.

Like you read in the title, this is about a band called Perfume. You may be wondering who or what exactly is Perfume. Well, let's just give a quick summary, pictures and videos, shall we?

In the year 2000, three young girls formed a group in their hometown, Hiroshima. The three said girls are Ayaka Nishiwaki (A~chan), Kashino Yuka (Kashiyuka), and Kawashima Yuuka (Kawayuka). Sadly, before the group could even debut, Kawayuka left and Ōmoto Ayano (Nocchi) took her place. I have a feeling that Kawayuka regrets this decision.

Eventually, they debuted in 2005 with the song, 'Linear Motor Girl'. What does that even mean? A linear girl working with motors?
