Tokyo update

Tokyo update

Hi all, I hope all is well with you. I just wanted to update you on the Japanese promo trip.

After waking up at 5.30am from jetlag I was happy I had an easier day of promo yesterday. We went to a couple of the really big Tower records stores and met the buyers and had photos, signed the wall and all of that stuff. It was brilliant to see the record racked out and at the listening post. Then we went to a pre-recorded interview at Yokohama FM. They asked some great questions and Masa from Fabtone did a good job of translating my answers ( I hope!). I played Last Of The Innocents live in the studio as well although my voice was pretty tired.

After the interview we went to check out the club we’re playing in September. There was a band playing called (I kid you not) ‘Ogre You Asshole’ who are also on the Nano Mugen Festival. The club was perfect; great sound and good-sized stage. I can’t wait til September 12th.

I also found out that Farrah’s Stereotypes is Number 1 on Good morning Garage which is Tokyo’s most popular morning radio show.

I hope all is well with you all out there.

More news as soon as it happens…
