Cowpers and toe.

RIP Hideki Yoshimura

15 Jun

Been recently out of the loop. I had been so busy with work and other stuff that I had little time for everything else that I used to do before. I got rid of my fb and I haven’t been around much. Found out just now, when I visited DA on a whim, that Yoshimura Hideki of the Bloodthirsty Butchers had passed on the 27th of May. He was 46.

I always thought that when I do have a chance to visit Japan, I’d go to one of their lives. They always seemed to be around. Not anymore. Now I want to cry.

I dance alone.

No Jakarta show this year :<

17 Mar

toe recently announced an Asian tour and they’re coming to Manila on the 19th of April. I’m checking flight schedules. Fucking crazy. It’s unlikely that I’ll do something crazy like go back home for a weekend to watch a concert. It’s on a Friday, too, on a week where we have work. Le sigh.

All I want for Christmas is OIMH3

Hm, right.

Anyway, here’s a clip from Omoide in My Head 3 about how Number Girl started out. Translations are by Marekenshin of the Distortional Addict forums.

“This is Number Girl”

Summer, 1995, Fukuoka City, Kyuushuu

Here is the heart, the spirit of Fukuoka.
In this asphalt jungle, there was a man with too much free time.

“Hey, Mukai, welcome.”

“Nakao Kentarou works here?”
“He’s doing lighting right now.”

“Hey”
“Oh, Mukai, it’s been a while. What’s up?”

“Well, I’m going to do a live, and I was wondering if you’d lend me a hand.

I want your rude but straight-cut bass.”

“Welcome.”

“For guitar, there’s this really good kid.”
“Oh, really.”

“Yeah, I wonder if she’d be willing to be in our band.”
“Oh really, I’ll call her right now.”
He was a high-handed guy.

(some days later)

“Ah, hello, Inazawa? This is Mukai…

How about it? Will you do it with us?”

“Hello, I’m Inazawa.”

They started rehearsing.
“It’s like this”
“…………”

“Alright, we can do a live with this.”
“……..”

And so…

“Alright, Number Girl is next.”
“………..”
(nervous)

And that’s how Number Girl started.
“NUMBER GIRL, MOTHER FUCKER!”
peran!
“Oh, whoops.”
