The Lost Tapes de Montreal

Next Music from Tokyo vol 6 at Divan Orange. (May 12, 2014) Uchu Conbini were an absolutely amazing band and it’s incredibly sad they broke up. I was almost able to reunite Uchu Conbini and bring them back to Canada again for NMFT7 as a surprise 5th band but the schedule didn’t work out. The […]

We have lots of video footage and photos. We just haven’t had good internet access or the time to upload them yet. But for now here are a few of my friend Larry’s photos that he took on May 17, 2014 at the sold out Lee’s Palace show (620+ people!) Our other photographer Bryan has […]

Can NMFT kick it?

Yes we can! Six times, bay-beh! NMFT6 is just a month and a half away which means I’m quietly stressing out making preparations for the tour and wondering how I’m going to fill the venues. Last year’s turnout was fantastic with the Montreal and both Toronto shows selling out easily. But this time the 2nd […]

One last round of voting!

Good news! Kinoko Teikoku are in Bad news: group_inou can no longer participate More good news: I asked my friend Hiro (ex-manager of Akai Koen & Mass of the Fermenting Dregs), an unbiased and very reliable judge of musical talent to watch Uchu Combini play live and to tell me what he honestly thinks. He […]

The three candidates for the remaining spot are: 1. 宇宙コンビニ (Uchuu Combini) homepage pros: – singer has a […]

Choosing the bands for NMFT6

警告: NMFT6に参加するバンドは間だ確認してない! Nothing is official yet but two of the four bands have more or less been determined and they are Happy!Mari and group_inou. The third band will likely be jizue and I’ve already invited tricot to be the 4th band. group_inou are a no brainer. They were part of NMFT4 and quite possibly the […]

NMFT vol 6 postponed until May 2014

Ideally I’d like to do the tour twice every year (in May and in October) but it would have been too rushed this year. Also in July, Air Canada decreased the number of items that can be checked for free from two to just one!! Each additional lugage/item is $100/flight. This is a HUGE pain […]

Advance tickets for NMFT10 can be purchased online: Toronto at Rivoli & Lee's Palace, Montreal and Vancouver.
