MATSURI_010615_99998000_Yuta_Co_904

 

The Pink Spider WebがQUORUMを初めて見たのはMeguro RockMeykanで、はじめからこのバンドにはユニークなところがいくつもあるのが明らかでした。
現代において珍しいジャンルの音楽をやってるだけではなく、日本の無難なゾーンを超えるジャパニーズロックよりもアメリカンロックに近い音楽をやっています。
音楽自体も、演奏も、最後までグルービー。
こちらからQUORUMの曲を視聴したりバンドについての詳細を見ることができます:
http://quorum-rock.com

First encounter with QUORUM for the Pink Spider Web was at Meguro RockMeykan,  and it was clear from the get go that this band is unique in more ways than one.
Not only do they play a genre not commonly heard these days, they also manage to step out of the Japanese comfort zone and play music more related to USA than to Japan.
They play it, as well as perform it, all the way to the very last groove.
You can listen to QUORUM and read more about them here:

あなたもQUORUMのことをユニークで才能にあふれるプロフェッショナルだと思うに違いないとThe Pink Spider Webは確信をもっています。QUORUMをライブで見る機会がもしいつかあったら、悩まずにぜひ見に行ってください。
ぜったい後悔はしませんよ!

若く才能ある佐藤勝城も参加した、はしゃぐようなパフォーマンスとミュージシャンのコラボはこのセッションをプラスアルファにおもしろくしてくれました。音楽は本当に人々をつなげてくれますーミュージシャンとオーディエンス、そしてオーディエンスとオーディエンスだけでなく、ミュージシャンとミュージシャンも!
ステージ上であんなに楽しんでいるのを見るのは最高でした…

MATSURI – Let’s ROCK! [part 2]

MATSURIブログの続編です…
The MATSURI blog continued….

東京ではライブがたくさんあります。年中毎週毎晩ライブが多すぎて選ぶのに困るときもあります。
しかし、MATSURIは色んなバンドがステージに立つような一般的なライブではありませんでした…
まず、11組のバンド(!)が参加してくれた。しかし、MATSURIのユニークなところはそれだけに留まりません…
MATSURIを永遠の思い出にしてくれたのは、イベントの中心となった企画者でMATSURIというアイデアを思いついたAURAの最高のボーカリスト: Reds☆

There are MANY live gigs in Tokyo. Every night of the week, year around there is so much to choose from that it can even be difficult to choose.
MATSURI was however not just another Live gig with some bands on stage…
First of alll at MATSURI 11 !  bands performed, but still this was not what made MATSURI unique…
The ingredient that made MATSURI a memory for life was the fact that in the center of it all, as organizer and creative brain behind it all, was the talented vocalist from Aura:
Reds☆

Reds

Reds☆はカリスマ性がありステージ上で最高のアーティストでいるだけでなく、オーディエンスに対しての配慮もあり、ライブで期待される以上のことをいつもやってくれます。根っからのエンターテイナーでさらに…
いつもみんなが楽しめることを大事にしています。
だからこそ彼の昔のステージ名は「みんなのReds」(「Everyone’s Reds」)でした。
またミュージシャンたちのことも同様に気にかけています。Reds☆にとってこれは競争ではなく、音楽やロックライフに対してのパッションです。
このメッセージが彼から伝わってくるのです:「一緒に楽しもうぜ!」
MATSURIの狙いはまさに「いっしょにROCK」「いっしょにSMILE」「いっしょにFUN」
企画やプロデュースをする人がこういう姿勢でいると、本当にインスピレーションがもらえます。
彼の基準が周りの人の新しい基準となるのです!
Reds☆のアイディアはバッチリでした…ライブミュージックのあるパーティー!

He is not only charismatic and an amazing performer on stage; he also cares about his audience and goes beyond what is normally done at a live gig. He is a natural born entertainer but there is more to it….
He makes sure that everyone feels they are PART of the FUN.
Hence his stage name from way back when is みんなのReds / Everyone’s Reds
He also cares for other musicians. For him this is not a competition, but a passion for music and rock life.
He radiates the message: “Come on, join the fun!”
This is what MATSURI was all about –
ROCK together , SMILE together, FUN together
and when an organizer and producer has this attitude, it certainly is contagious
It sets the emotional bar for everyone present!
and the recipe certainly worked… it felt like a Party with Live music on stage!

次のバンド(この夜の4番目)はJESSY
Next band up (4th this evening) was JESSY
Their setlist
1.Broken wall
2.DICE
3.Cold turky
4.CHERISHED MEMORIES

 

Kyassy and Junn in action
JESSYのギタリストKyassyはすごくかっこいいです。PSWからは、MiyaviDregen
(スウェーデンのBackyard Babies/Hellacopters)を合わせたようなルックスに見えます。

Jessy’s guitarist Kyassy has a very cool look. He reminds PSW visually of some cross-over between Miyavi and Dregen (Back Yard Babies/hellacopters, Sweden)

しかし彼には彼自身の才能が備わってす!JESSY以外にはKoREDS (AURA、HeavensDustのドラム)とアコギを弾いて共演したりもします。

but he certainly has his own talent! Besides JESSY he also performs on acoustic guitar with KoREDS (Drummer in AURA and HeavensDust)

次のバンドはとても特別なバンドです…

GROWING’S
Fumisato (ギター)とYukichika (ドラム)とJunpei (ベース)
ギターのFumisatoは10歳で、ドラムのYukichikaは13歳です。
しかし、子供だからと言って特別扱いはなし。この夜参加した他の人たちと同様に彼らは立派なアーティストです
Fumisatoはステージ上で素晴らしいオーラとカリスマを持ち、完全にプロの風格を漂わせています。ギターを弾き、オーディエンスと一体となり、さすがアーティストといった様子です!
ベテランのアーティストたちがGROWING’Sの面倒を見ているのを見ると、心が温まります–

Now next band up is a very special band…
GROWING’S
Fumisato gu. , Yukichika Dr. and Junpei Ba.
Fumisato on guitar is10 years old and Yukichika on drums 13 years old
However they are not specially treated for being kids,
they ARE artists just like the rest tonight
Fumisato has an amazing stage presence and charisma and he acts and behaves totally professional on stage. He plays the guitar, he interacts with the audience like the real rocker he is!
When he is on stage he has total contact with the audience and he OWNS the stage!
Of course it is also really heart warming to see the older rockers care for these guys …

Reds, Fumisato and MatsubaraTheir setlist:

MATSURIブログパート2で最後に紹介したいのは…
The Pink Spider Webが何回もライブで見た、最高のバンド…いつも全力尽くして、ステージ上にいるのが楽しんでいること間違いなし。

ザ・ビールス – The Beers

and last but not least band out on this second blog from MATSURI …
A band the Pink Spider Web has seen Live many times and
they are great… They give it all and there is no doubt they enjoy being on stage
They ROCK….

ザ・ビールスThe Beers

 

ザ・ビールスは本当にいいライブバンドです。ビジュアル的にもすごいし、エネルギーにあふれ、独特なスタイルを持っています…パンクっぽさの中に、日本らしさを持ち合わせています。
このバンドはもちろんPSWのお気に入りのバンドの一つです…しかしMATSURIには他にも私たちのお気に入りのバンドがいくつも参加してくれました。
ザ・ビールスのステージネーム (オフィシャルのフェイスブックページより):
Heine Kenpa Vo./Gu.
SUPER JACK DRY Gu./Vo.
チョチラガー  [Chochirow] Ba./Vo.
YUNAweizer Dr./Vo.

The Beers is a really good live band. They are visually interesting, they are energetic,
they have their own style… somewhat punkish..but definitely with a Japanese twist
This band is a PSW favorite for sure… then again we were fortunate to see several favorites at MATSURI
Their stage names as they state them on their Facebook page:

Heine Kenpa Vo./Gu.
SUPER JACK DRY Gu./Vo.
チョチラガー  [Chochirow] Ba./Vo.
YUNAweizer Dr./Vo.

早く治るようにPSWは願っています。お大事に!
すぐにステージに戻れるといいですね!

 

This brave fighting girl is amazing. The Beer’s bassist Chochirow; on stage she made an unfortunate jump and broke her leg, but look at this smile!
She is always in our thoughts and we wish her a fast recovery!
We certainly wish her back on stage soon!

Life with Live gigs… and Koenji Mission’s Hard Drunk Strip

So for the past 11 days I have been to 11 Live gigs….
(one night I switched venue mid-evening, so yes there was one night without a gig).

This means that I have had absolutely no time to process photos and videos in between.
I take approximately between 300-500 photos each night,
so the work accumulates very fast and BIG time.

On top of it I’m trying to continue the development of this site so you all can enjoy the full site in the future.
Tonight and tomorrow are the two last nights out and about around Live gigs and the Golden Week, amazing one at that, is soon over.

Until I can take some time next week to look through all the photos and videos, I wanted to share with you the Final Fun last night where everyone is up on stage just having FUN!

It’s PARTY time with Adelheid, CLACK-NASH, Moneyqueen,  BRUNET BULL…. enjoy…

so hang in there and there will be photos/ videos from
VoRCHAOS, MYPROOF, Elüpia, Slave Sisters, QUORUM, Keiko Walker, Adelheid, CLACK-NASH, Moneyqueen,  BRUNET BULL….and MORE!!!


and ….April 26 27 28 and 29……

Coming up…

April 26 TSP at 渋谷THE GAME

TSP is band I have been wanting to see but never had a chance to until now.
TSP was formed in 2010 by Taiji (X Japan, LOUDNESS, D.T.R, Taiji with Heaven’s and more….)
TSP – Taiji & Shu Project –  had Taiji on bass and  Shu on Guitar (Cloud Nine, Crazy Quarter Mile), vocalist Dai (Taiji with Heaven’s) and drummer Hina (Crazy Quarter Mile).
You can read more about their current line up on there site (link below)

Sunday April 28 QUORUM

I want to tell you about a sweet and very talented guy I met last week. His name is Yuta.

First time I met him was at Yoyogi ‘Zher the Zoo’ on Friday (4-19) when my friend Yusuke (Dr. Moneyqueen) was playing at an After party for Heesey’s Birthday Live.
Yusuke was of course very busy, so he introduced me to his friend Yuta. People in Japan are considerate, thoughtful and kind like this!

We had a great time together across the language barriers. We then ‘ran’ into each other again on Saturday night in a bar in Shimokitazawa, as well as on Sunday at Club Sensation for BLADE. 

Yuta plays guitar in QUORUM. I have never heard QUORUM play Live yet, but I’m pretty sure it will be good times.
Yuta is a talented musician himself, so I’m sure he wont bargain with what the band does together.

Just listen to this!!! I liked it the first time I heard it.
Second time I was like ‘woah what a voice’ ..he ‘feels’ it… he has it…. and then yeah …then the guitar….Mmmmmm..
Third time I was hooked


so I don’t only listen to heavy rock …
I just listen to what I feel reverberates within me.
And it can differ from one day to another what I ‘plug into my ears’
That’s why I have a hard time with questions like:
Who is your favorite artist? Which band is your favorite one? etc etc

This song “above with Yuta for ex gives me peace and loving feelings….

so check back here to read more about it and the other Lives I mentioned above!
