Oh Sucka! Not-so Yucky Niku and a potential line-up change.

I decided to make use of my JR pass and head southwest to Osaka. The internet connection at my hotel has gone AWOL so I am currently typing this post at an internet cafe. There is a bit of a dilemma regarding Merpeoples’ participation with the NMFT3 tour. I don’t want to get into specifics […]

Charanの中には Valenciaをモルグ

adieu et bonne chance Kulu Kulu Garden (R.I.P.)

On May 15th, 2011 Kulu Kulu Garden played their final show. The decision to break up came as a shock since things appeared to be going very well for the band as they were under a developmental deal with Victor Entertainment. They took part in the original NMFT tour, found an amazing full-time drummer, played […]
