Like Japanese food? Fan of the Tokyo music scene? Then you’re gonna love this! CNN International have put together a mouth watering TV program about Japanese food featuring three of our own tunes: Make Things Better, 28 Years and There’s Something Wrong. Better yet, they’ve also included music from our good friends Metro-OngenmothercoatJimmy Binks and the Shakehorns and icon girl pistols. Now that’s what we call a soundtrack!

If you miss it the first time, don’t worry, it will also be show on Saturday 11th October and Sunday 12th and be available online from this page!

In April we travelled down to Fukushima to check out their valuable work and lend a hand. Huge thanks to Rudy Van Os and Chihiro Watanabe for documenting the trip to the sound of our latest tune, Make Things Better.
