We spent the day trawling through the Tokyo streets trying to find stuff to do. I needed to do shopping as I stupidly told friends I’d get them Japanese shit. We had a burger at Mos burger which was insanely good. We then went to some massive building but it cost money to go to the very top and we all said fuck that. Went to hello kitty land to buy my little niece some shit too! Found the sickest shop with some sweet shirts but Japanese people are all too small so nothing fit me! We then met up with our bro’s who drove us everywhere and had some kind of BBQ type thing in a restaurant.
I’d like to make a special thank you to Machu Picchu records for sorting this wonderful tour. I’d like to say thank you to our lovely TM and friend Kirk for being amazing as always. I’d like to also mention Tatsuya and Nauto from Shibuya TV for dealing with our driving and basically being gnarly and finally I’d like to say thankyou to Haruna from HOU project for making all of this possible! Tangled Hair nailed Japan! Now we can start sorting this bloody album out. Peace fuckers x
It’s the final show today. Last night was so good I really don’t want it to end. Woke up around 1030am, got into the van and drove to Tokyo. I haven’t even eaten breakfast and I’m in a bloody ramen noodle place. Maybe they can slap me up an omelette….probably not. Everyone seems tired. I’m pretty tired. The energy that filled my bones has gone. I’m ready for bread and pies and all that English shit food.
The gig was incredible!! So sad this was the last show but what an amazing one! The venue was sick, I steezed out on this kit and was nearly sick. We then ate the fuck out of some sushi which was coming from a conveyer belt type shit with the players from toe. We have had the best fucking time sucking Japan’s dick. Tomorrow we have a day off so I’m gonna hook you guys up with a day off final report. Peace fuckers.
What happens when the dentist gives you antibiotics instead of taking out the bastard tooth? Well kids it’s fucking painful and there’s no way I’m going to a dentist that doesn’t know English so I stay in bed til 2pm and eat some pain killers. I’m starting to feel like a rice grain so I decide its time I was introduced to an old friend. I fucked up a Big Mac and fries and went to the venue.
We took a trip after our soundcheck to tower records to admire ourselves as, apart from Banquet Records, this was the only place I’ve seen our cd advertised. We signed some stuff and had a picture taken. Tubelord CD’s were cold chillin’ near our one!!
TOE are rad!!!! First time I’ve seen them and they fucked my life up in a good way. The gig was great! Final one tomorrow! Fuck. As a little side note I am currently eating at 1.00am in the morning. It’s raw fish. Who eats raw fish at 1 in the morning? It’s insane. Bye.
Today we have a day off! Things start off really well! I had a coffee from this beautiful Japanese coffee shop. I think it’s called Starbucks. Now we have a 7 hour drive in front of us but spirits are high as we are all blazed on coffee. I’ve already mentioned how rad Japan looks so I won’t go on, but basically everything is fucking sick.
Basically we are still in the van. I have taken a few dirt naps and listened to too much Pinback and now I want to get out of this car…..wait a bloody minute…….is that?…….it is it’s a fucking McDonald’s!!! I run as fast as possible (I walked but so far this day hasn’t been very exciting) and order myself a mother fucking dub chee (double cheeseburger for all you vegans) and I go to town on that bad boy. It tasted different but I couldn’t give a shit. I was back on top! We get to the hotel and everything is rad! We got sushi and then drank some beers and watched Step Brothers….I saw Alan’s penis. the end.
An early start…..fuck off I get one of them lie ins everyone’s been talking about! We have a three hour drive to Osaka. Tattoo and nou (our driver and tech) are owning the shit out of these Japanese streets. Osaka is amazing! We set off to the Osaka castle as we have ages till soundcheck! Hidoyoshi owns this castle and he’s pretty rad up until he died! His son wasn’t that great! Sound check was ritious! Thanks to my buddy Andy Miller, we got some octopus in batter and that shit was real!
The gig was sick! Low pass killed it! We went to do some karaoke and Alan sang Duality haha! Anyways after killing Everlong I realised I’m pissed so we walked home and now I’m in my pants watching Gosling be fit in Drive…….Arigato!!!
