Osaka Popstar

Osaka Popstar is the pop-punk multimedia music and art project led by singer/producer John Cafiero, long-time Misfits & Ramones collaborator and platinum selling film and video director. The critically acclaimed debut album “Osaka Popstar and the American Legends of Punk” as well as the live follow-up “Rock’Em O-Sock’Em Live!” features frontman Cafiero with a revolving lineup of punk-rock legends as his backing band including members of the Ramones, the Misfits, Black Flag, the Voidoids and more.
The world of Osaka Popstar is a fusion of pop-culture that transcends into all facets of art including collaborations with Topps’ Garbage Pail Kids & Wacky Packages, Space Monkeys’ designer Dalek, Japan’s Mari-chan, Batman/Justice League/Ben 10’s Butch Lukic (to name just a few), animation, gallery shows, designer vinyl toys and much more.This puts them squarely in the same box as later day Gorillaz.
A fun band with some exciting visual ideas and the music is great pop punk.
Anyone who does covers of the Astro Boy and Sailor Moon theme songs are definitely in it for the fun of it.
