Music events: - I went to Nomiya Maki's annual show at Billboard Live Tokyo! This year the theme was "soundtrack Shibuya-kei", mainly covers of songs heard in movies or TV that inspired Shibuya-kei artists. That was a wonderful show! The song selection was great! I was especially moved by a version of "T'en va pas" (as sung by Harada Tomoyo with Japanese lyrics by Ōnuki Taeko). It was also a great flashback to hear "Topless Party", featured on Maki's solo album "Miss Maki Nomiya Sings"! ... and the Pizzicato Five medley of course! I sure hope this will be released on CD like the previous years' shows.

Set list: Tokyo wa yoru no 7ji (Pizzicato Five) / Chanson des Jumelles (from "Les Demoiselles de Rochefort") (Michel Legrand) / Love Squall (from "Lupin the 3rd") (Sandra Horn aka Sandii) / Melody Fair (from "Melody") (Bee Gees) / T'en va pas (from "La Femme de ma vie") (Elsa) / kaitou Ruby (from "kaitou Ruby") (KOIZUMI Kyoko) / Topless Party (from "Sweden: Heaven And Hell") (Piero Umiliani) / Go Kart Twist (from "Eighteen in the Sun") (Gianni Morandi) / 7 uomini d'oro (from "Seven Golden Men") (Armando Trovajoli) / koi to Machinegun (Flipper's Guitar) / Rouge no dengon (from "Kiki's Delivery Service") (ARAI Yumi (Yuming)) / Un Homme et Une Femme (from "Un Homme et Une Femme") (Pierre Barouh & Nicole Croisille)

- I went to see Agata Morio's in-store event at Tower Records Shibuya's Pied Piper House (5th floor), in promotion of his new album "kindai Rock" out on that day. There was a talk show also featuring Pied Piper House's Nagato-san, and Suzuki Sōichirō (of World Standard, who sound-produced the album). Although it was just supposed to be a talk show and autograph session, he added in a mini-live show! Accompanied by Suzuki-san, he sang two songs from the new album, and also "boku wa tenshi janai yo".

Set list: Rosetta no keikoku / kaero kana, yozora o. / boku wa tenshi janai

AGATA Morio

New music: This week was vinyl week! I got La veuve moustachue's new LP (a kind of updated version of the mini-album from 2002, with twice more songs), and also Hirayama Miki's "mayonaka no Angel Baby" (a newly recorded version produced by Groove Unchant and Arai Toshiya, plus a remix by Comoesta Yaegashi). I had also been looking around for Chikada Haruo's "hoshikuzu kyōdai no densetsu", an 1980 album that was later made into a movie of the same name. All great stuff!

Movie: - I went to see the premiere of "The Brand New Legend of the Stardust Brothers" (「星くず兄弟の新たな伝説」) at the Tokyo International Film Festival! The movie is directed by Tezuka Makoto (son of Tezuka Osamu ("Astro Boy")), and it's related to his own 1985 movie "The Legend of the Stardust Brothers". That's right, a revival 30+ years later! The movie is a rock musical with a sci-fi twist, the Stardust Brothers head for the moon where they'll try hard to become superstars...!

I actually had the great chance to take part in this movie as an extra, almost a year ago, and it was really a great experience! I was so happy to finally see the result on the big screen! I do certainly appear for at least a few seconds, and even got my name in the end roll! :) The movie and the music were fantastic, but yet the best for me is that the movie also features Nomiya Maki who sings a brand new song! :)

Despite it being shown at the film festival, the movie still has a long way to go to make it to theaters because it's an independent production. It might take up to a year or so, and at this time promotion funds are being collected via crowdfunding (check out the trailer at this link!). I look forward to when I can see the movie again, and I hope you will too. Of course I'll announce it again when the time comes.

Premiere of "The Brand New Legend of the Stardust Brothers", "hentai da" and "DDT: Dramatic Dream Team!! -We are Japanese Wrestlers!-" Premiere of "The Brand New Legend of the Stardust Brothers"

Also shown that night (it was an all-night screening event) were "DDT: Dramatic Dream Team!! -We are Japanese Wrestlers!-" directed by Matsue Tetsuaki and "hentai da" directed by Anzai Hajime.

Music event: - I went to Especia's release party for the analog edition of latest EP "Mirage". It was my first time seeing the idol group in its latest formation, as they're now three girls (Haruka, Erika and Mia) and their sound on that latest EP seems to have been heading into a more jazzy direction. They were backed by a back-band of six (guitar, bass, keyboards, sax, drums and percussions) consisting of their main producers Hi-Fi City. That was a very good show! Their brand new clip for the song "Nothing" was also shown for the first time. Watch it below!

Also playing was Dorian! It had been a while since I had seen him do a MC-909 set. That was a very techno one too, a big contrast when compared to latest album "Midori". By the way Dorian made the track for a very cool clip of a factory that makes screws! Check it out below! The song is available on OTOTOY!

Music events: - I went to an event at Time Out Cafe & Diner (above Liquidroom) that was mainly a release party for comedian Hollywood Zakoshisyoh, although the main reason I went was all of the music guests. There was a guitar DJ set by Kashif (PPP, Jintana & Emeralds), a live performance by girl rap group Yomeiri Land, a DJ set by Dorian, and a show by all-star unit Donuts Disco Deluxe (ANI (Scha Dara Parr) + Robochu + AFRA), etc. All of that was just great! I posted short clips of Yomeiri Land, Kashif and Donuts Disco Deluxe.

When walking out, we ran into models for Eros Hairstyling from Taiwan, who were shooting some photos before heading to their stage at Liquidroom. Quite impressive! That was followed by cheese ramen at the nearby Tsukumo.

- Friday was the first day of Montreux Jazz Festival Japan 2016, and I was lucky to be able to check out Metafive! I had seen them at World Happiness in August, and they gave a set that was a bit similar including new song "Chemical" from the upcoming "Metahalf" mini-album (out Nov. 9). It was also my first time seeing them indoors, without worrying about the weather. :)

HOSHINO Michiru w/ Nagareboshi Gakudan

Music event: I went Hoshino Michiru's "tasogare ryūseigun vol.5" event, the release party for her cover album "My Favorite Songs"! I was also excited to see Wakita Monari (ex-Especia) who appeared as the opening act, her debut as a solo singer. She sang both songs from her upcoming single, "In The City" and "ano ne...", and also a cover of ikkubaru's "Cloudless Night". All of that was very good! I'm now really looking forward to the single, expected to be released in November.

I also enjoyed Nishi Erika's show. She has a powerful voice and fun personality. Her songs were very good too! Her set was followed by some funny stage acting featuring Michiru, Erika and the other act Minaminorisa, which ended with throwing loads of "Happy Turn" snacks at the audience. :)

Then was Hoshino Michiru's show! The first half was karaoke style, with older favorites and songs from the new album, and the rest of the show featured back-band Nagareboshi Gakudan (Shooting Star Orchestra) mainly formed of members from Wack Wack Rhythm Band, Sloppy Joe and then some. Three members from The Scooters (Shindō Mitsuo, Ronnie Barry and Beauty) joined for their AKB48 cover, and then Nishi Erika came to sing in duet for two songs. That was really a wonderful show! Oh, and VJing (for all acts from start til end) was by Sally Kubota as usual! Great work! :)
