Crate Soul Brothers newsletter #78: Hot springs and monkeys
Here comes the sun little darling and we hope it will shine till the end of autumn from now on. Me in the phase of job seeking but so hard to concentrate on anything else but music. Had a nice evening in the radio studio last Tuesday with Leengum and lost-for-a-while dj Gonnok.
On the previous Saturday a new series started at Budapest's Club La Ventura with the help of ThirdG promotion team (www.thirdg.org). The main people behind the weekly Gelee Royal night at the lovely Porgy & Bess of Vienna (www.porgy.or.at) AleXdrum and Isabelle aka DJ Shalom will invite monthly different musicians and djs from Vienna and Budapest to jam together. The first guests were Café Drechsler live, DJ Darcosan of the Vienna Scientists posse and me. We had a great night and the nice folks danced till the very end (lots of beautiful young girls!). Thanks to everybody for making it happen. Next week it will be my turn in Vienna, so look out!
Shuriken's bits from London:
Fellow Kristalykert dj Leengum visited this city two weeks ago, and hanging out with him was loads of fun. I miss him again already.
Koop rocked Cargo that weekend. I mean they have touched our souls in the concert hall filled to its maximum capacity. Yukimi Nagano played on our hearts' strings. No words can describe her voice, so I'm not even attempting. Even Earl Zinger has appeared on stage, bringing us his enormous verbal fun live. And the band was just amazingly smooth and swinging.
Now I'm laying low for a while, trying to get some work done for college, so for the next weeks, don't expect me to turn up at fancy places and concerts and report. No, I'm sticking to New Cross, this dirty, noisy, but in certain ways charming suburb of London.
This week's reading is from a recent interview with Japanese electronic post pop superstar, Cornelius aka Keigo Oyamada, who somehow quite misteriously seems to be on the same mental frequency with us, sharing our long time fantasies of playing dream gigs at home or for monkeys, sitting in the hot water:
"Time Out: In Japan you're known for playing huge, elaborate, sold-out stadium gigs. If you could pick anywhere to play, where would it be?
Cornelius: I prefer small venues. I'd like to play in my own house to maybe two or three people and I wouldn't have to leave the house.
T: So what would you do to make it special?
C: Maybe I'd do it in my bathroom. No, actually I'd do it at one of Japan's hot springs. There, monkeys and chipmunks - lots of animals - take baths."
Keep on taking bath in hot springs till next week!
