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…

New Enki Bilal: 32 decembre

32_presentation_couv2.jpgVery good news!!! Enki Bilal is releasing a new album « 32 Decembre », in stores June 3rd 2003. This book is the second part of his new trilogy, following « Le sommeil du Monstre » released in 1998. We will follow the same protagonists: Leyla, Amir and Nike, 3 Sarajevo Orphans, around the world. Reading a few first comments and looking at some pictures, the atmosphere seems as dense and tortured as the first opus. I can’t wait.

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)..
