GO! GO! GO!

tategami.jpgGO!GO!7188 latest Album: 鬣(tategami), released Feb 2003. I first discovered the band watching TV and the SpaceShower TV programs. Still looking for the successor of Sheena Ringo in my personal chart, I happened to view the video-clip of the first single (うきふね). I immediatly loved the combination of the visual and the modern traditional (japanese paradox?) composition of the song. There was something of Sheena Ringo in Yuu and Akko’s voices. I immediatly bought the album at the first HMV I could find (no big deal, shibuya is the closest one). It can appear as a bit too much basic Rock’n’Roll, but de-structured enough to keep your ears interested. It’s vivid energy, and should be fun in concert… Japanese good rock bands are unfortunatly quite rare…

Nouveau Enki Bilal: 32 décembre

Une excellente nouvelle!!! Enki Bilal sort un nouvel album intitulé « 32 Décembre », en librairie le 3 juin 2003. Ce livre est la deuxième partie de sa nouvelle trilogie, en suite à l’album « Le sommeil du Monstre » sorti 1998. Nous suivrons les même personnages: Leyla, Amir et Nike, 3 orphelins de Sarajevo, autour du monde. A la lecture des premiers commentaires et en voyant les quelques images, l’atmosphère semble aussi dense et torturée que le premier opus. Ca va être dur d’attendre. Plus d’informations sur le site de Enki Bilal.

Website Update

A lot of updates this time on the page. I added the Weblog page where I will try to give general updates on the site from now on, it will be also a kind of diary, puting together the stuff I like, the experiences I went through, a bit more of my impressions living in Japan… I hope it will be usefull in some ways… Well, I’m quite exciting as it’s a nice thing on the site. Hope I will have enough time to update it regularly. Also, I’m back from a nice bike trip at Shirakawa-Go: check the weblog for the short report and the pictures section. I’m still not decided if I will have this news part replaced by the weblog, as I’d like to have this last one separated from the main site, as an add-on somehow (that’s why I created a sub-domain for it)..

TOKYO: A powerful earthquake rocked northeastern Japan on Monday, causing blackouts and forcing authorities to temporarily shut down highways, railways and even Tokyo’s main airport, more than 400 kilometers away. Eight people were reported injured.

The quake had a preliminary magnitude of 7.0 and was centered 64 kms below the sea floor off the coast of northeastern Miyagi prefecture, Japan’s Meteorological Agency said.
