頑張れRyan! potential susquatch new guitarist

(note: I had intended to write this post a couple months ago. Better late than never!) When people find out that I’m organizing a tour bringing Japanese bands to Canada and that I need help promoting the tour, they often give me lots of advice on where and how I can target the Japanese community. […]

Tokyo Day 7: Gyoza Party!!

Ryotaro called me and let me know his band’s playing tonite down the street from my hotel. So I’ll be checking out Kulu Kulu Garden @ Shinjuku Motion before heading to Shimokita ERA for the gyoza party with susquatch, uhnellys and sgt. Kubota (MOTFD manager) said they might not be able to make it due […]

Tokyo Day 3: Penguins Attack Osaka

On the 12th, I took the shinkansen (bullet train) from Tokyo to Osaka. It’s a 3 hour train ride if you take take the limited express. This particular train was about to leave in 2min but I had to get some food for the ride before I boarded. I bought 2 bento boxes more or […]

Tokyo Day 2: family reunion

I decided to take it easy during the day. I caught up on some much needed sleep, wrote a blog entry about the show last night, validated my 3-week JR pass, scored reserve tickets for NATSUMEN’s Endless Summer Jam one-man show (12/21) @ SHELTER (which I thought would be sold out for sure), went to […]

3 Unequivocal Truths About the Tour

1. The bands and I gained a LOT of weight eating and drinking the fine food and beer Canada has to offer. 2. I developed a cold. (and I’m pretty sure it was susquatch’s Maki-chan that gave it to me.) 3. I had the time of my life touring with sgt., MOTFD, susquatch and uhnellys […]

BEASTS (pt1 ft Reiko Gotoh)

of MASS OF THE FERMENTING DREGS (original line-up) Reiko Gotoh! Where the hell are you? And why did you have to quit MOTFD? You were so badass. So damn powerful on skins I could marry you for your drumming prowess alone. =) Nothing against Isao Yoshino who is an amazing drummer but Reiko was a […]

Pocket Aces (pt2 ft Shiori Sekine)

of Base Ball Bear and cult movie hit Linda Linda Linda Shiori セクシーね? I mean Sekine. hahaha. The first time I saw Shiori in Linda Linda Linda she looked rather Plain Jane. But in the blink of an eye she went from Ugly Betty to SI Swimsuit material. What I love most is how she […]

Pocket Aces (pt1 ft Natsuko Miyamoto)

When it comes to Dope Female Bassists, you won’t get a more attractive pair than: In an unlikely pairing, MOTFD performed with BASE BALL BEAR during the latter’s LIVE MATHEMATICS TOUR 09. The matchup isn’t actually that surprising since both bands are signed to EMI (though at the time MOTFD were technically still with Avocado […]

Next Music from Tokyo vol 2 unplugged (literally)

Just about a week ago the 2nd Next Music from TOKYO tour was on “life support” b/c 1. I had lost contact with Mass of the Fermenting Dregs’ manager for about 3 weeks. 2. Despite numerous people saying they would help with the tour, I found myself doing all the scutwork again 3. There was […]
