We received a really wonderful email this morning from a lovely chap in Spain.
Just a few words to inform you that I’ve just bought “You’re Dancing I’m Absorbed”, “Independent Social Power” and “There Are Ghosts Around Here”. I purchased “Spoiled and Nostalgic” and “Draw What You Like” some weeks ago (via cdbaby.com), so it seems that I’m in possesion of your whole discography, which hopefully will not stop here!
I’m 52 years old and listen to an awful lot of music: classical, jazz, pop, rock… I’m completely at a loss why you are not touring the whole Europe in sold-out, crowded theaters, your songs are simply amazing.
Victor (Murcia, Spain)”
Low and behold, a receipt from BandCamp soon appeared in our inbox, so we can confirm that Victor is actually a real person!
Receiving something like this really makes our day! It is so nice to think that our music has reached new ears in different parts of the world. We’d like to say a huge thank you to Victor not only for buying our music, but also for getting in touch and letting us know. As a relatively small indie band that doesn’t get outside Tokyo much, we are so excited to hear from followers outside our musical homeland. It’s a bit of a slog trying to get people to listen to our music, so in all honesty, our motivation does sway sometimes. Victor’s email has given us fresh motivation to make some more music!
We have a few gigs coming up. We hope you can come. This Saturday we’re at The Aldgate in Shibuya raising money for the Tohoku Recovery effort. It’s a lovely little pub in the heart of Shibuya (look for the British flag!) and it’s also non-smoking which makes for a refreshing change. We’ll be playing three acoustic sets from 19:30, 20:45 and 22:00. Hope you can join us!
The following weekend, on Sunday 19th March, we’ll be playing at Heaven’s Door in Shimokitazawa for the very first time. It’s a great line up featuring Audible Bond, ENTRADA, D.O.G.S and The Goood Things. We’ll be opening the show at 19:00.
