Time for an update and something a little different.During my trip to Tokyo in november i went to quite alot of shows and ill try to give you a little taste of those experiences.
Just looking through website after website in japanese, trying to spot the little english they present i made a agenda for myself in tokyo. One of the bands i wanted to see was Tone Deaf, which i had checked out through one of your favorite dutch hardcore messageboards. They were actually playing during my stay just 2 metro stops from my home in Tokyo. It was a pretty big event called "United Trash Night vol. 65". To think they already had 64 of those shows, amazing.
This was one of the shows were i was obviously the only foreigner as i could tell, yet i felt right at home when i began to spot kids in various old dutch band shirts like B.G.K. and Larm and even distro's selling split records with dutch bands i have actually filmed last year and are on my video site.
Here are in order of appearance the following bands that day:
Very noise type of hardcore.

When i went to a show in Japan , at the entrance you often had to say for which band you specifially came so for me they checked Tone Deaf. Later i got me a nice shirt saying "Go loser, go!".

I had a little chat with the singer of this band , who seemed like a nice guy just before i went back home. When asked where i was form and after replying with "Hollanda, Amsterdam" he again replied with "Ah, Larm country" or something to that extend.

At one point the singer switched with the bassplayer as you can notice in my video.

Obviously the headliner of the evening as people went nuts,(and i later found out this was their e.p. release show) and i was presently surprised eventhough a few days before the singer of Number Two had responded excitingly as i told him i was going to this event by showing me his Crucial Section patch, which i also picked up together with the ep "Against the Wind".
