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!!!
7.30am comes crawling in and I’m surprisingly more alive than yesterday. After enjoying lying in bed watching brightly coloured people making no sense at all on the tv I decide a bath is appropriate as I’m smelling exactly like arse. I’m 6’1” and this bath can just about fit my foot but I manage to get in and soak for 10mins. I towel up and dry the balls before kirk rings me and simply says “yeah”? I reply with the same and then strap on some pants and shit. The room was wonderful! Clean and small but perfect! 7 hour road trip ahead! Kirk got fish jerky and I bought a donut. Life is loud!
Drove past some serious shit including megatrons burial ground and Mount Fuji. Outabero, our boys from Kyoto took us to some steezy noodle bar where we ate the shit out of some noodles. Played a sweet arse show and met some wonderful people. I am a pussy so I went to bed earldog. My guest paragraph is none other than Alex………
We walked down some tiny old street and to a even tinier cool bar. SHOES OFF but crocs provided, no-one wore the crocs. Wood is obviously scarce in Japan as all the tables only had short legs and we all had to sit cross legged on the floor. Beers, name your Top 5 album game, more beers, cool guys, great times. Lie in.
