I honestly had no idea that they exsisted! I saw a pv and i can honestly say that i like their music.(or at least the pv) Old school in your face stuff unlike the stuff they have today.

The group was formed in 2000 and consisted of Kitagami Ami and Oki Ibuki. The two had participated in the same audition that Matsuura Aya participated in and eventualy won. In 2001 Suenaga Mami joined the group making it a threesome. Later that year Oki Ibuki left the group and Arai Saki replaced her.

Sheki-Dol was disbanded in January of 2002, after having released only four singles. The official reason was that one of its members needed medical attention. It was later discovered that Mami had become pregnant.

Yay! A sheki dol thread!

Their songs have been available for download here and there, but I have only managed to purchase only one of their singles ("Ai wa muteki", the last one they did) and it's actually pretty solid stuff! The title track is very nice (co-written by Tsunku, of course), but the coupling is really amazing, albeit Tsunku-free!

Here are the scans:

Oh! How nice that there's a Sheki-Dol thread! I absolutely love their songs. And they had a different flavor than the other H!P groups, which is always nice. I wish they'd been around longer, it'd be really interesting to see how their style would've evolved by now...

@ sailormari and gaijin_mmlove: You can find three of their PVs on veoh and one on youtube--the one on youtube's link is in calmersac's first post. (That one's their most well-known, from what I can gather, and also my favorite.)



So apparently Oki-san is attempting work as a model, now...she's still lookin' beautiful:

Does anyone know what any of the other Sheki-dol girls are currently up to?

I loved Sheki-Dol, it was sad they dibanded but they can't really do H!P while she was pregnant so it was the obvious choice. They did make good music though.

OK, here are Sheki Dol singles 2, 3 and 4: http://www.sendspace.com/file/ld5x3p

Haven't managed to locate their first one yet. As it's too late and I've got to take a nap right now, I'll try some more tomorrow!

And this behavior is reason for H!P management does not allow members to have boyfriends.

Now, here's a good question, to which I do not know the answer :rolleyes:

To complicate things even more, Sheki Dol appeared only in two (!) H!P concerts, in both cases as a duo (!) and performed only one edited song in each gig. At least that's as much as I know; feel free to correct me if I am wrong.

Not very active a unit, apparently...
