Club Citta – hide’s BD Party

hide’s BIRTHDAY PARTY at Club CITTA 

December 13th, 2011

Today was a very busy day!
I had to redesign my business cards, research and find documents
online, make them into pdf:s, go and print them at the local
konbini (コンビニ convenience store), register for a few web sites…
There just wasn’t enough time to blog much.
I wanted to give you these flowers though.
They were in the parade of flowers just outside of the Club Citta
entrance on Tuesday night.
Tomorrow I have to run some errands, plus I want to hang out a
little with my Russian friend, whom I call Phoe-Lo here on the blog.

Next week coming up is a concert with “fade”.
They might not be so known outside of Japan, beside the fact that
their vocalist, Jon Underdown, sings together with Gackt
in YELLOW FRIED CHICKENz

Also next week… super stoked about this one…
is Sugizo Solo at Zepp Tokyo
That will probably be just plain AWESOME!!

Then immediately the next day after is
DIE’s special Xmas Night 
with guests : Pata  / CUTT / michiaki 

Probably another AWESOME night!
I must say Ra:IN was incredible to hear at Club Citta and with such
a bunch of awesome musicians it just cannot go wrong!
Sooooo much awesomeness!!
Tokyo and Japan certainly delivers!!

Pata feels like a totally different person with Ra:IN though,
than  when he is on stage with X….
Let’s talk more about that at another time though….
Now it’s bed time here in Tokyo. Actually it’s bedtime far West of
me as well… ha ha
As the wonderful and sweet Keisuke (guitarist)  once wrote in his FB status….
It’s MORNING; Good NIGHT!  

 

 

 

62 or NOT

 

 

 

On a  bit of a tangent…. regarding Sexual XXXXX!

Kind of cute and innocent little side trip here….
First time I heard this song, I didn’t know the lyrics or the title,
I just listened and thinking it was all in Japanese!
It all sounded like Japanese to me.
I didn’t bother too hard to try to understand what he was actually singing!
In my linguistic perception with the languages I know,
it sounded like  ‘sesenta y dos‘ …well fast like spoken… sesenta-i-dos
which means 62 in Spanish.
What do you hear (if you are not a speaker of Japanese that is)?
I have gotten all kinds of words people hear, but none thus far, have
heard him sing what he actually does….>>

He is in fact singing ‘sexual intercourse’

Here is the lyrics for SEXUAL XXXXX!
(In Romaji – this is what he really sings)

utsuroiyuku YOUR EYES yakedo shi sou na BODY HOLD YOU
kagamibari no yume wa nugisuteyou subete TONIGHT

PLEASE ME AHA SEXUAL INTERCOURSE!

tameiki made YOUR LIE shita o karame amaku DEEP KISS
kizutsuki sou na beze mune de itami ni naru AND MORE

PLEASE ME AHA SEXUAL INTERCOURSE!
PLEASE ME OH YES SEXUAL INTERCOURSE!

YOU JUST MIND CLOSE YOUR EYES
sasayaku I WANT YOU
I JUST MIND CLOSE MY EYES
WANT YOU WANT YOU OH-HO
OH MY DARLING

YOU JUST MIND CLOSE YOUR EYES
sasayaku I WANT YOU
I JUST MIND CLOSE MY EYES
WANT YOU WANT YOU OH-HO
OH MY DARLING

PLEASE ME AHA SEXUAL INTERCOURSE!
PLEASE ME OH YES SEXUAL INTERCOURSE!

YOU JUST MIND CLOSE YOUR EYES
sasayaku I WANT YOU
I JUST MIND CLOSE MY EYES
WANT YOU WANT YOU OH-HO
OH MY DARLING

YOU JUST MIND CLOSE YOUR EYES
sasayaku I WANT YOU
I JUST MIND CLOSE MY EYES
WANT YOU WANT YOU OH-HO
OH MY DARLING

 

 

 

 

Kiyoharu and Atsushi 2007

Kiyoharu and Atsushi together… 2007
“Just One More Kiss”
Wonderful!
Contagious!
Professional!
Lovely!
Superlatives all over!!

How I wish we could see more of this Sakurai Atsushi
The one of gives his audience everything
I certainly must go to more BUCK-TICK lives and hope that
December 8th really was an anomaly
For those of you not recognizing Kiyoharu, 森 清治 :
he is mostly known for Kuroyume 黒夢 and Sads

 

 

So how was December 8?

This is BUCK-TICK 夢魔 Muma The Nightmare LIVE
I choose this because it has subtitles in English
This video is changed from previous one since the one I had here originally
had been taken down.

 

 

 

Now I guess considering it being one of my favorite all time songs,
that is why it has extra high perceived quality by me, but I guess this is
the drama, the performance I had hoped for…

December 8th, I felt like Atsushi was tightened mentally…. like not
really giving it all…
yes, sure he threw water, but their wasn’t much else giving to the audience.
I felt like he was a hiding behind his black feather boa, hat and way too
much theater make up. I know… yes I know… he is drama and make up,
but drama and make-up can’t do it by itself.
Like my friend and I said almost at the same time, he felt like a marionette,
a puppet..
The true good moments came from U-ta and hide who actually as always, looked as if they truly enjoyed being there.
Imai, Toll and Atsushi did excellent jobs, and Toll threw his sticks out,
but it wasn’t connecting…. Perfection? Yes!  Boring? ALMOST

Maybe it’s stress that came on them now with double show schedule (because of shows like this RAZZLE DAZZLE ones from the spring),
and their new label and their anniversary….
just maybe it is… too much even for pros like BUCK-TICK
They just can’t ignite every time?
But truly I expected BUCK-TICK to be able to do just that…
Well enjoy the music!
