Re: Hospital/NWN Fest in Osaka / Machine Parts in Tokyo

Hoping to ask a couple of questions about Ochiai Soup since we're talking about it (kind of). I'm gonna be there with a disabled person who deals with limited mobility. Nothing that will stop us getting there and negotiating some stairs but still a thing that'll mark how we travel and that we need ...

Re: Hijokaidan YOLO Thread

The very first time I saw Hijokaidan live (aside from a warehouse set played with them) was with a drummer, and it was amazing. Hiroshi from CCCC/Astro played drums with them. It was in Tokyo, if I remember correctly at the La Mama live house. I like the propulsion that drums can give to them, espe...

Not to change the subject with the third post, but your comment makes me think of The Gerogerigegege---a group that, on the one hand, seems so important, yet is, on the other, seemingly neglected in western distros/reissue labels. I guess, overall, it is another annoying reminded of just how niche ...

Re: Travelling overseas for a noise show? Who's dunnit?

Maybe something else to consider for anyone who’s mostly noise inclined on their first trip to Japan is noise venue experience, the Osaka show at Gorilla Hall occupancy is 1300 and will undoubtedly be great sound and lighting, great sight lines etc. But if you have the opportunity to check out Namba...

Re: Travelling overseas for a noise show? Who's dunnit?

You can also mail things back to yourself, shipping from Japan to the US way more reasonable than US to Japan. Most post offices have staff who are helpful and you can purchase any box(es) you’d need there all reasonably priced versus extra change from an airline. This is real helpful, thanks Matt!...
