Welcome! ようこそ!

I set up this blog to hopefully introduce those outside Japan to some of Japan's best music and a taste of Osaka and Kyoto's thriving underground music scene.

Alot of what I post will be CDR's and CD's sold by bands on the Kyoto/Osaka live circuit. Hopefully giving a little exposure to the bands outside Japan. The rest will be Japanese bands from pretty much any and every generation and genre. From 60's Rock'n'Roll and folk to 00's noise and electronica.

If anyone has an issue with me uploading their music please contact me and I'll remove the links immediatley. My intention is to introduce this music to new audiences. So please help support these bands by buying their releases or catching them live if you have the opportunity. Alot of these guys are working full time jobs on top of making great music. Please send comments, complaints, recommendations and seasonal greetings to stinkinhippy@hotmail.com

LIVE LOG: Kudo Tori & Michishita Shinsuke

...And finally rounding out the Kudou bonanza is a special one-off live collaboration between Maher Shalal Hash Baz's Kudou Tori and LSD March's Michishita Shinsuke. The slightly unlikely pairing actually made for some great results. All the songs were Kudou's own compositions filtered through Michishita's own interpretations and distinctive playing style. The pair were later joined by Oshiri Pen Penz drummer Yusuke and played some pretty awesome closing songs but unfortunatley by that point the battery on my camera had already died. The pair said it was their first time playing together but hopefully it won't be their last.
