Kamayatsu Hiroshi (aka Monsieur Kamayatsu, ex-Spiders) passed away last March at the age of 78. Many Shibuya-kei artists deeply respected him.

Here's a 7" from Readymade of two songs from the Konishi Yasuharu-produced album "Je m'appelle Monsieur" (2002). The A-side is a jazzy breakbeat track in which Monsieur speaks words of his memories and influences from the 20th century, here re-edited for the 7" format under Konishi's supervision. The B-side is a self-cover in duet with Ichikawa Miwako, available for the first time on vinyl.

Vanilla Beans are this year celebrating their 10th anniversary! Today, members Rena & Lisa have each released a separate song now available on iTunes Japan and other download/streaming services.

DJ Misoshiru & MC Gohan (nickname: Omisohan) and Lisa (nickname Richako, as Richakohan) teamed up for a food-themed single! Together they cooked yodaredori ("mouthwatering chicken", a spicy chicken dish of Sichuan origin), and then turned their memories of that time into lyrics for this new song. Featured musicians are guitarist Furuichi Kōtarō (The Collectors) and percussionist Asakura Shinji (Yoshimba).

Rena collaborated with band Five New Old who wrote new song "Tokyo Crawl" which she sings solo.

Vanilla Beans' 10th anniversary show will be held on October 7 at Shibuya duo Music Exchange (tickets will go on sale August 11). Another one-man show will be held on August 19 at Shibuya Glad (tickets are on sale).
