It also seems to mesh well with the image I have of you after seeing that video for the Winnipeg mini-meet :D

 

But the language...Not on par with croissants. 


Hey what can i say, for whatever reason I seem to get myself into some of the craziest schiit at concerts. I was at this one concert a few years ago and this one Canadian punk band called Die Mannequin came out on stage, they were the openers. The lead singer was a girl who liked to go nuts on the guitar while singing. Most of the people there weren't really paying much attention and seemed to be milling about chatting and drinking. I'm not much into punk rock but they impressed me and I showed it by applauding and throwing the devils horn salute at them a couple of times. I especially liked the front woman because she was going all out on stage and you could tell she was letting it all hang out and having a good time. About halfway into the set she runs out into the crowd and starts going freaking nuts running through the audience and freaking out on the guitar. She ran up to me and plants her forehead square on my chest pushes hard against me for support and rips out this one crazy guitar solo. She then reaches up and grabs my then brand spanking new all leather Indianapolis Colts cap throws it on her head backwards and runs back on stage. The band then plays another 2 or 3 songs and leaves the stage with the front woman still wearing my leather cap. I asked security if I could go backstage to get my cap or if maybe one of them could go back and ask the chick for it back. I was told by the pleabs behind the barricades to forget it nobody allowed backstage and they weren't leaving their posts to get a measley cap. I was leaning on the barricade feeling rather pissed at losing,my much loved leather cap when I noticed the front woman was standing on the far right side stage exit looking at me. She then bolts out jumps off the stage into the barricade section in front of me puts my cap back on my head and then gives me a big fat wet kiss on the nose and says thanks for showing the support and runs back into the backstage area.

 

I dunno, guess I'm the sort of dude who lets my hair down at concerts and people notice.

I can just imagine the flowing mane of hair now...

I'm that sort of person who just goes to the side, sits, and enjoys the ambiance...

Greatest build and looks I've yet to see on a closed portable.

These shall be conjoined to my aural perceptive devices as soon as they come out, I swear on the all mighty name of Zalgo Lord of Internet Fruit,

Mine is the Monsters of Rock tour, w/ the Scorpions, Ozzy, Def Leppard, Faith No More, and Megadeth.


Whitesnake + Skid row!

Now what I REALLY want to do is go in on a studio set of them live for the At the Matsuri Studio jams.

I'm still too young to even fathom Number Girls live :P

Frustration > Maboroshi all day erryday. Then again I'm totally biased towards NG, in the same way I prefer ATDI to Mars Volta. I'm not native nor do I speak the language so Mukai's wordplay is all but lost upon me (though I can glean the meaning of the bulk of his lyrics thanks to some folks over at Distortional Addict and Seiteki Shoudo kindly translating his bloodcurdling screaming) but I've mostly enjoyed ZB's ever evolving style. I miss Inazawa manning the skins as he had a more idiosyncratic style of drumming vs. Matsu****a's borderline drum machine like precision, but I realize that his departure signaled a great shift in their overall sound. And hey, Heartbreak off of Stories sounded a lot like the melding of ZB with NG, so least I got that.

Did you ever listen to Mukai's side joint Kimono's with Leo Imai? I thought that was pretty groovy too.

Edit: Hahaha gotta love HF censoring M-a-t-s-u-s-h-i-t-a biggrin.gif **** me!

Yeah, the Matsuri lives would be real interesting to sit in on. I hear they spent like 300 hours recording 3 cause Mukai didn't want to use Pro Tools to overdub any mistakes lol. Can't imagine what a more free form jam would be like, probably something straight outta Naked City

Nah, Sappukei and Num-Heavymetallic are all-time tops for me post-hardcore wise. Deliciously destructive playing. Obviously these would be more coherent and musical as an album and just solidifies Mukai musically enough that I can have him doing his random shizzle and not be worried in the slightest. 

 

And Vola & the Oriental Machine is just a weak endeavor to me. No inspiration from Inazawa and he's wasted without being in Zazen (I guess alternating would be ideal but nothing really is - they could pull off some Stories songs I guess with the textured playing but it sorta destroys the point unless it's done live/singularly or something). 

 

Not enough input from Mukai IMO on the pop thingy. Unless he has a poppier side I'm not even aware of - even considering that it still doesn't seem like him. I'm conflicted and would probably have to listen more in-depth.

 

H-F censors the [redacted] out of me as well. I think achmed pulled some strings and got me [redacted] whenever I mention the magical tropical [redacted]

Nope, it wasn't my doing. My guess is you are getting some karmic payback for all the pineapple posts. very_evil_smiley.gif

 

Or maybe these guys stepped in....

I don't like any of Vola's albums but I did dig their EPs Waiting for my Food and Halanaca Darkside. Basically the entire thing fell apart as soon as their dope guitarist left to form Unkie. Dude was probably too talented for them anyhow if his time with Downy and Unkie is to be taken into account :l

And you're alright man. Sappukei and NHM are so damned good. Still some of my favorite albums more than a decade later.

Mukai and Leo actually share songwriting duties on Kimonos. I think it's fairly similar to the direction that 4 went in with all the synthy **** that Mukai has been doing as of late. Seriously, listen to it closely and you can hear a lot of elements that he's carried over from ZB. He plays some good licks and lays down some nice vocals on Yureru as well; you kinda forget that he's capable of both with all the ranting and barking and staccato riffs he does with ZB.

Unkie is nice from the few songs I've heard but haven't heard a lot in terms of body of work from them sadly.

 

Also DOWNY IS ALL GLORY INCARNATE GREATEST MUSICALITY I'VE HEARD IN A WHILE.

 

Brutal Man hook....words cannot begin to describe. And the titular song on NHM is so guttural and primal...ugh - infinite replay on my playlist mode.

 

I'll need to give it more of a fair chance, yeah.

That's right 2 meter poles work just as good how elitist.

My strongest impression of Paris was that the entire city smelt like pee.

While I think the TMA-1 looks better, I do like the look and I'm totally intrigued now. THANKS >:[

post #10544 of 21760

You're so very, very welcome :D

I think the higher end model is touted to have "protein leather" like the TMAs. First thing that comes to mind is Stax fart although I'm not sure why as it has absolutely no context. Guess it's just the typical thought vomit.

 

Anyone read the Flat-4 analysis on Rin's site yet?

Sorta describes the "out-of-head" experience that the advocates have been touting.

Linky?

 

That is so interesting that there are two distinct sub-bass impulses that appear after the initial impulse, but everything else looks so clean. You're right, that's super weird.
