SCRUBB – KID

4/12/2010

Let me begin by disclosing the following: I cannot speak Thai. I cannot read Thai. I’ve never even been to Thailand. Like many people, however, I do enjoy Thai food, though that doesn’t really relate to this review (if you can even call it that – perhaps “impression” is a better word) which discusses the rather great nature of Kid – the latest album from Bangkok indie power pop-rock duo scrubb.

BRODBURGER

15/11/2010

Nestled by the banks of Lake Burley Griffin — the vast, artificial patch of water at the centre of Australia’s capital city — is Bowen Park, a small recreational area that’s home to a collection of quaint groves, open, grassy fields, hungry black swans and a certain bright red caravan…

GO!GO!7188 - GO!!GO!GO!GO!!

GO!GO!7188 – GO!!GO!GO!GO!!

9/07/2010

It’s hard to believe that it’s already been 10 years since GO!GO!7188 carved their way into the Japanese rock scene with their classic debut album Dasoku Hokou, but nonetheless, here we are. 10 years is a long time in the modern music business but try telling that to Yuu, Akko and Turkey, who have just released of their tenth (tenth?!) studio album – the energetically-titled GO!!GO!GO!GO!!.

Sushi Club

SUSHI CLUB

17/04/2010

Rarely is a restaurant so eager to promote its primary mode of dining that it forgoes putting its own name on the front of the store in order to do so. Such is the case, however, with Sushi Club (I had to ask the cashier), a popular restaurant in Ueno’s bustling Ameya-yokocho market area whose no less than four storefront signs proudly proclaim its core culinary M.O.:  “すし食べ放題 (sushi tabehoudai)”; or, all-you-can-eat sushi.

ikimono-gakari - Hajimari no Uta

いきものがかり – ハジマリノウタ

4/01/2010

ハジマリノウタ (Hajimari no Uta), the fourth major label release by J-pop darlings いきものがかり (ikimono-gakari) is, for all intents and purposes, the exact same album as their previous release last year. Which, incidentally, was pretty much the same as the one that came before it, which was more or less the same as… oh, you get the idea. So why bother with it at all?
